astrazeneca plc (AZN) Key Developments

AstraZeneca Enters into a Definitive Agreement with Genzyme to Divest Caprelsa

AstraZeneca announced that it has entered into a definitive agreement with Genzyme to divest Caprelsa(Registered) (vandetanib), a rare disease medicine. Caprelsa was granted Orphan Drug Designation by the US FDA in 2005 and is currently available in 28 countries for the treatment of aggressive and symptomatic medullary thyroid carcinoma, with global product sales of $48 million in 2014. Under the terms of the agreement, Genzyme will pay AstraZeneca up to $300 million, including an upfront payment of $165 million to acquire the global rights to sell and develop Caprelsa, and further development and sales milestone payments of up to $135 million. The transaction does not include the transfer of any AstraZeneca employees or facilities. As an asset divestment, upfront receipt and any subsequent payments will be reported in Other Operating Income in the Company's financial statements.

Fujifilm Kyowa Kirin Biologics Co. Ltd. Establishes Joint Venture with AstraZeneca plc to Develop and Commercialize Anti-Vegf Biosimilar

Fujifilm Kyowa Kirin Biologics Co. Ltd. announced that it has entered into an agreement with AstraZeneca plc to establish a joint venture for the development and commercialisation of FKB238 in development for the treatment of multiple solid tumours. FKB238 is a biosimilar version of bevacizumab, an anti-VEGF1 humanized monoclonal antibody with established efficacy across a range of cancers including colorectal and non-small cell lung cancer2. Fujifilm Kyowa Kirin Biologics commenced its Phase I clinical trial for FKB238 in Europe in November 2014. Under the terms of the agreement, the new joint venture that is equally co-funded by the two companies and will use FKB238s non-clinical, clinical development data compiled by Fujifilm Kyowa Kirin Biologics thus far. Fujifilm Kyowa Kirin Biologics will transfer the rights to FKB238 to the new joint venture, and will receive a lump-sum payment of USD 45 million in return.

AstraZeneca Commences Phase IIa Trial in Severe Asthma

Synairgen plc announced that AstraZeneca has commenced its Phase IIa study of AZD9412 (inhaled interferon beta, developed by Synairgen and formerly known as SNG001). The study population will comprise patients with severe asthma, building on the clinical data from Synairgen's exploratory Phase lla trial in moderate to severe asthma, which showed that difficult to treat asthma patients appeared to derive most benefit from therapy. AZD9412, a novel, inhaled interferon beta, supports the immune system by correcting a deficiency which makes patients vulnerable to respiratory tract viral infections. The programme was out-licensed to AstraZeneca by Synairgen in June 2014 in a global deal worth up to $232 million plus tiered royalties. AstraZeneca is responsible for all development, regulatory and commercial activities and on-going costs associated with this programme. The licence agreement with AstraZeneca also provides the opportunity to expand the clinical programme into other pulmonary diseases, including COPD. This placebo-controlled Phase IIa trial seeks to enroll 220 asthma patients from countries in both the Northern and Southern Hemispheres (to maximize the benefit of access to a 'continuous' cold season). The study population will be GINA Step 4/5 asthma patients (that is patients requiring treatment with medium-to-high dose inhaled corticosteroids and a second controller medication) who have a history of severe exacerbations caused by cold viruses. The primary endpoint for the trial is the number of severe exacerbations during the 14 day dosing period.
