05:17 EDTIPSEYIpsen, Lexicon enter into ex-North America/Japan licensing agreement
Ipsen (IPSEY) and Lexicon Pharmaceuticals (LXRX) announced that they have entered into an exclusive licensing agreement for Ipsen to commercialize telotristat etiprate outside of North America and Japan, with a focus on the treatment of carcinoid syndrome. Lexicon retains sole rights to commercialize telotristat etiprate in the United States, Canada and Japan. Lexicon is conducting Phase 3 clinical trials of telotristat etiprate for carcinoid syndrome, a serious condition caused by symptomatic neuroendocrine tumors, which produce large amounts of serotonin. Carcinoid syndrome is characterized by severe diarrhea, flushing and, in some cases, heart valve damage. Telotristat etiprate is an oral, small-molecule inhibitor of tryptophan hydroxylase, or TPH, that reduces peripheral serotonin production without affecting brain serotonin levels. Telotristat etiprate has received fast track status and orphan drug designation from the FDA, and has received orphan drug designation from the European Medicines Agency. Under the financial terms of the agreement, Lexicon is eligible to receive up to $145M, comprising $23M upfront payment and additional payments contingent upon achievement of clinical, regulatory and commercial milestones. In addition, Lexicon is also eligible to receive royalties on net sales of telotristat etiprate in the licensed territory.
