Aratana Therapeutics, Inc. Receives Full License for AT-004 from U.S. Department of Agriculture

Aratana Therapeutics, Inc. announced that AT-004, the company's canine-specific monoclonal antibody targeting CD20 as an aid in the treatment of B-cell lymphoma in dogs, has received a full license from the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Aratana believes that this represents the only full license for a species-specific monoclonal antibody within the animal health industry. AT-004 is exclusively partnered with a third party for commercialization in the United States and Canada. Aratana retains development and commercial rights for AT-004 in other geographies. B-cell lymphoma is a common cancer in dogs, and is a devastating disease that can progress very quickly if left untreated. A Chemotherapy, although never specifically approved by regulatory authorities for use in dogs, is often the primary treatment. Nearly all dogs suffer significant side effects from chemotherapy and ultimately relapse, leaving a significant need for new treatment options. Aratana's biologics portfolio also includes, AT-005, a canine lymphoma monoclonal antibody targeting CD52 as an aid in the treatment of T-cell lymphoma in dogs, which received a conditional license from the USDA in January 2014. Aratana also submitted AT-014, a novel cancer immunotherapy for canine osteosarcoma, for a product license with the USDA. With its combination of monoclonal antibodies and immunotherapies, Aratana is an industry pioneer with a significant intellectual property estate and two products already available on the market.
