Friday, December 9, 2011 07:56 AM

Janssen Biotech, one of the Janssen Pharmaceutical companies of Johnson & Johnson, has executed an agreement with Pharmacyclics to jointly develop and market the anti-cancer compound, PCI-32765. A number of phase I and II studies with PCI-32765 are ongoing across a panel of B-cell malignancy disorders, including chronic lymphocytic leukemia, mantle cell lymphoma, and diffuse large B-cell lymphoma.

"The agreement with Pharmacyclics is an opportunity to bring a new form of oral therapy to patients with B-cell malignancies," said William N. Hait, M.D., Ph.D., global therapeutic head, oncology, for Janssen. "PCI-32765 is an innovative compound, with broad applicability and the potential to help a large number of patients with B-cell malignancies."

According to the terms of the agreement, the companies have entered into a worldwide 50/50 profit-loss agreement, sharing development and commercialization activities. Janssen has made an upfront payment of $150 million which will be recorded in the fourth quarter, and will make additional payments based upon the achievement of certain development and regulatory milestones.
