08:33 EDTVRTX, JNJVertex licenses VX-787 to Janssen for treatment of influenza
Vertex Pharmaceuticals (VRTX) announced that it has entered into a licensing agreement with Janssen Pharmaceuticals (JNJ) for the worldwide development and commercialization of VX-787, a novel medicine discovered by Vertex for the treatment of influenza. As part of the agreement, Vertex will receive an up-front payment of $30M from Janssen and has the potential to receive additional development and commercial milestone payments as well as royalties on future product sales. Vertex completed a Phase 2a study of VX-787 in 2013 that showed statistically significant improvements in viral and clinical measurements of influenza infection. VX-787 is designed to directly inhibit replication of the influenza virus. Under the terms of the collaboration, Janssen will have full global development and commercialization rights to VX-787. Vertex will receive a $30M up-front payment from Janssen and could receive additional development and commercial milestone payments as well as royalties on future product sales. The collaboration, and the related $30M up-front payment, is subject to the expiration of the waiting period under the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act.
