Zealand and Helsinn Announce the Advance of Elsiglutide into Phase IIB Development for the Prevention of Chemotherapy-Induced Diarrhea

Zealand Pharma A/S and Helsinn Healthcare S.A. jointly announce that Helsinn has started a Phase IIB clinical dose-finding trial of elsiglutide for the prevention of chemotherapy-induced diarrhea (CID). The first patients out of a planned total of 600 patients with colorectal cancer treated with chemotherapy have been dosed in the trial. Elsiglutide is a novel GLP-2 peptide receptor agonist invented by Zealand. Global development and commercial rights to elsiglutide for its use in cancer supportive care outside the Nordic countries are licensed to Helsinn. Many cancer patients who receive chemotherapy, in particular 5-fluorouracil (5-FU)-based regimens such as FOLFOX and FOLFIRI, suffer from severe diarrhea induced by damage to their intestines caused by the chemotherapy. The condition can lead to dehydration, hospitalization, sub-optimal cancer treatment and markedly reduced quality-of-life for the patients. 5-FU based chemotherapy regimens are used in particular to treat colorectal, head and neck as well as breast cancers. In Phase I and Phase IIA clinical trials, elsiglutide demonstrated favorable results in the prevention of diarrhea in colorectal cancer patients receiving chemotherapy and a good safety profile. In pre-clinical studies, elsiglutide has been shown to consistently stimulate growth of the small intestinal mucosa and decrease the incidence and severity of CID, in addition to improving bowel function, which supports its potential use in the treatment of gastro-intestinal disorders. Currently, no effective treatment exists for CID.

Zealand Pharma A/S Raises DKK 300 Million in Royalty Bond Financing

Zealand Pharma A/S announced that the company has raised USD 50 million/DKK 300 million in a non-dilutive, non-recourse bond structured financing backed by stand-alone lixisenatide (Lyxumia(r)) royalties. The Financing is provided by Athyrium Capital Management and its funds, a U.S.-based specialist healthcare investment manager. Credit Suisse acted as sole structuring advisor and placement agent in the transaction. The royalty bond carries an interest rate of 9.375% annually, and the combined annual payments of interest and principal are limited in recourse to 86.5% of Zealand's future annual revenue on lixisenatide as stand-alone product under its license agreement with Sanofi, until the bond is repaid in full. Potential future royalty revenue on LixiLan is not part of the Financing.
