07:37 EDTNAVBNavidea forms joint enterprise with Rheumco
Navidea announced that it has formed a joint enterprise with Essex Woodlands-backed Rheumco to develop and commercialize radiolabeled diagnostics and therapeutics for rheumatologic and arthritic diseases. The joint enterprise, called R-NAV, will combine Navidea’s proprietary Manocept CD206 macrophage targeting platform and Rheumco’s proprietary Tin-117m radioisotope technology to focus on leveraging the platforms across several indications with high unmet medical need. R-NAV will be initially funded primarily through a $4M investment from Infinity Capital III and other third-party private investors working closely with Essex Woodlands, and underpinning the technology contributions from Rheumco and Navidea. Navidea has committed an additional $1M to support R-NAV’s development efforts to be paid in equal installments over three years. In exchange for its cash, in-kind and technology contributions, Navidea has received both common units and Preferred Series A units of R-NAV and will initially own approximately 30% of the combined entity. Joint oversight of R-NAV is shared between Navidea, Rheumco, Infinity Capital III of Houston-based McRay Money Management, and the other investors. Navidea also has an option to acquire, at its sole discretion prior to Phase 3 clinical study, imaging products derived from the Manocept platform, and therapeutic products combining Manocept agents from Navidea with the Tin-117m technology for commercialization.
