Ark Grants Licence to Boehringer Ingelheim
for Access to Key Technology
1 April 2005 - Ark Therapeutics Group plc today announces that it has signed an agreement with the
German pharmaceutical company, Boehringer Ingelheim International GmbH, granting Boehringer Ingelheim exclusive rights to Ark’s intellectual property in relation to certain Boehringer Ingelheim therapies affecting the renin-angiotensin system. Although detailed financial terms of the agreement were not disclosed, Ark receives a material upfront payment on signing and several multi million Euro payments expected over the next few years on the achievement of certain pre-defined milestones. In addition, Ark will receive royalties on sales of a Boehringer Ingelheim product for the treatment of patients in certain cardiovascular related indication areas for which Ark is able to secure and maintain a valid patent. There is increasing interest in the use of drugs which affect the renin-angiotensin system (a natural hormone cascade) in treating vascular related conditions. Ongoing clinical studies such as Boehringer Ingelheim’s PROFESS® and ONTARGETTM/ TRANSCEND trial program1 are being performed in order to accumulate clinical evidence about their effectiveness in reducing the incidence of such conditions. Market research data suggest the sales of these compounds is likely to increase significantly in the future as physicians switch to newer therapies in this growing market, driven by population aging and an increasing prevalence of vascular Ark’s intellectual property encompasses a fundamental discovery that chemicals within the body’s renin- angiotensin system play a significant role in determining the ability of mitochondria2 to generate the energy for cells to survive. The scope of Ark’s intellectual property covers the use of all agents which affect the renin-angiotensin system for the treatment of complex vascular-related and metabolic disorders. Dr Nigel Parker, Chief Executive of Ark Therapeutics, commented: “The novel work of Ark’s scientists and collaborators has contributed to a wider understanding of the potential utility of this class of drugs in a range of disorders. Whilst Boehringer Ingelheim is the first to acknowledge the importance of Ark’s discoveries in these areas, Ark may grant further licences in the future to other companies.” Paul Higham, Director of Commercial Development at Ark, commented: “We are pleased to have finalised this agreement with Boehringer Ingelheim in this very significant indication. We look forward to what we all hope will be the successful completion of their clinical studies and to the registration of Boehringer Ingelheim’s products in these important areas of unmet need.” 1 PROFESS®: PReventiOn regimen For Effectively avoiding Second Stroke ONTARGETTM: ONgoing Telmisartan Alone and in combination with Ramipril Global Endpoint Trial TRANSCEND: Telmisartan Randomized AssessmeNt Study in aCE iNtolerant subjects with cardiovascular Disease 2 Mitochondria are cellular substructures considered to be the power station of the cell Ark Therapeutics Group plc
