16:45 EDTLLY, ANTHAnthera Pharmaceuticals acquires Sollpura from Eli Lilly
Anthera Pharmaceuticals (ANTH) announced that it has acquired Sollpura, a novel investigational Pancreatic Enzyme Replacement Therapy from Eli Lilly and Company (LLY). Sollpura is a soluble, stable and non-porcine enzyme product intended for the treatment of patients with low digestive enzyme levels, or Exocrine Pancreatic Insufficiency, due to cystic fibrosis, and potentially other diseases. EPI is characterized by low absorption of fat and other nutrients due to a reduction in digestive enzymes produced by the pancreas. EPI is a major cause of serious nutritional deficiencies and long-term development issues, particularly in children with cystic fibrosis. EPI is estimated to afflict more than 150,000 patients in the United States alone, with more than US$600M spent on enzyme replacement therapy annually. Anthera intends to sublicense all rights, obligations, and intellectual property for the development and commercialization of Sollpura to Alkira Therapeutics. In the future, Alkira will secure appropriate funding as a wholly-owned subsidiary of Anthera to advance Sollpura into a phase 3 pivotal registration trial as agreed with the United States Food and Drug Administration in 2013. It is intended that Alkira will make all future contingent milestone payments under the license agreement upon product approval and on certain annual sales achievements and will make royalty payments on any product sales after achieving certain sales thresholds of cumulative net sales of Sollpura.

15:19 EDTLLYEli Lilly, BioNTech enter into research collaboration
Eli Lilly and BioNTech announced they have entered into a research collaboration to discover novel cancer immunotherapies. The companies will seek to use the power of the body's own immune system to attack cancer cells and create possible new treatment options for cancer patients. Leveraging the scientific expertise between the two organizations, Lilly and BioNTech will collaborate to identify and validate novel tumor targets and their corresponding T cell receptors in one or more types of cancer. These tumor targets and TCRs may then be engineered and developed into potent and selective cancer therapies. Under the terms of the agreement, BioNTech will receive a $30M signing fee. For each potential medicine, BioNTech could receive over $300M in development, regulatory and commercial milestones. If successfully commercialized, BioNTech would also be eligible for tiered royalty payments up to double-digits. In addition, subject to the terms of the agreement, Lilly will make a $30M equity investment in BioNTech's subsidiary, Cell & Gene Therapies GmbH, which specializes in the research and development of TCR and chimeric antigen receptor immunotherapeutics. Further financial terms were not disclosed.
