Innate Pharma announces new multi-term agreement with AstraZeneca

Innate Pharma SA announced a new multi-term agreement with AstraZeneca, and its global biologics research and development arm MedImmune, building on an existing collaboration, aimed at accelerating each company's oncology portfolio and bringing new medicines to patients more quickly. The extended collaboration will enable Innate to develop its commercial footprint and strengthen its ability to invest in its immuno-oncology (IO) pipeline and R&D platform and will also enrich AstraZeneca's IO portfolio with preclinical and clinical potential new medicines.

Under the terms of the agreement, Innate is licensing the US and EU commercial rights to AstraZeneca's recently FDA-approved Lumoxiti (moxetumomab pasudotox-tdfk) for hairy cell leukemia (HCL). AstraZeneca will obtain full oncology rights to the first-in-class humanised anti-NKG2A antibody, monalizumab, expanding its partnership with Innate from the initial collaboration announced in 2015. AstraZeneca also gains option rights to IPH5201, an antibody targeting CD39, as well as four pre-clinical molecules from Innate's pipeline.

Mondher Mahjoubi, Chief Executive Officer of Innate Pharma, said: "Today is a defining moment for Innate as we transition to become a fully-integrated oncology-focused biotech. Lumoxiti is a major therapeutic innovation for patients who suffer from relapsed/refractory hairy cell leukemia and we are proud to be in a position to address a significant unmet medical need. Our commercial team will be focused on rare cancers and generate more value as our own hemato-oncology proprietary pipeline develops. Furthermore, AstraZeneca's decision to obtain full oncology rights to monalizumab and collaborate on IPH5201 and four yet to be selected molecules validates the strength of our oncology pipeline."

Pascal Soriot, Chief Executive Officer of AstraZeneca, said: "Our expanded collaboration with Innate Pharma enables us to further strengthen our leadership in immuno-oncology, and to explore the potential of next generation immuno-oncology pathways, together with the world-class scientific team of Innate. Today's agreement also secures long-term commercialization of the recently FDA approved rare disease medicine, Lumoxiti, through dedicated focus and investment by Innate."
