07:12 EDTCRISCuris announces re-initiation of patient dosing in CUDC-427 monotherapy trial
Curis announced that it has re-initiated dosing in the single-agent clinical trial of CUDC-427 in patients with advanced and/or refractory solid tumors or lymphomas. CUDC-427 is a novel, oral small molecule that is designed to promote cancer cell death by antagonizing inhibitor of apoptosis, or IAP, proteins that support survival of cancer cells. The primary objective of the monotherapy study under the amended protocol is to determine the safety and recommended Phase 2 dose for CUDC-427 when administered orally once daily for two weeks, followed by a one week rest period in 21-day cycles until disease progression or study discontinuation. The study is expected to enroll patients in consecutive cohorts at dose levels of 100 to 300 mg per day. In addition to safety and tolerability measures, the amended protocol is designed to enroll patients in an expansion cohort, which is planned to be limited to patients with ovarian or certain hematologic cancers, including mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue lymphoma.

06:07 EDTCRISCuris and Aurigene Discovery announce exclusive collaboration agreement
Curis and Aurigene Discovery Technologies announced that they have entered into an exclusive collaboration agreement focused on immuno-oncology and selected precision oncology targets. The collaboration provides for inclusion of multiple programs, with Curis having the option to exclusively license compounds once a development candidate is nominated within each respective program. The partnership draws from each company's respective areas of expertise, with Aurigene having the responsibility for conducting all discovery and preclinical activities, including IND-enabling studies and providing Phase 1 clinical trial supply, and Curis having responsibility for all clinical development, regulatory and commercialization efforts worldwide, excluding India and Russia, for each program for which it exercises an option to obtain a license. The first two programs under the collaboration are an orally-available small molecule antagonist of programmed death ligand-1 in the immuno-oncology field and an orally-available small molecule inhibitor of Interleukin-1 receptor-associated kinase 4 in the precision oncology field. Curis expects to exercise its option to obtain exclusive licenses to both programs and file IND applications for a development candidate from each in 2015. The agreement provides that the parties will collaborate exclusively in immuno-oncology for an initial period of approximately two years, with the option for Curis to extend the broad immuno-oncology exclusivity.In addition Curis has agreed to make payments to Aurigene as follows: For the first two programs: up to $52.5 million per program, including $42.5 million per program for approval and commercial milestones, plus specified approval milestone payments for additional indications, if any; For the third and fourth programs: up to $50 million per program, including $42.5 million per program for approval and commercial milestones, plus specified approval milestone payments for additional indications, if any; and for any program thereafter: up to $140.5 million per program, including $87.5 million per program in approval and commercial milestones, plus specified approval milestone payments for additional indications, if any. Curis has agreed to pay Aurigene royalties on any net sales ranging from high single digits to 10% in territories where it successfully commercializes products and will also share in amounts that it receives from sublicensees depending upon the stage of development of the respective molecule.
