Heidelberg Pharma Announces Conclusion of License Agreement with Partner Takeda To Develop an Antibody Targeted Amanitin Conjugate

Ladenburg, Germany, 9 September 2022 ? Heidelberg Pharma AG (FSE: HPHA) today announced that its subsidiary Heidelberg Pharma Research GmbH and Takeda signed a license agreement granting Takeda an exclusive license to commercially develop an Antibody Targeted Amanitin Conjugate directed to a previously selected target molecule.

Takeda obtained access to Heidelberg Pharma's proprietary Amanitin toxin-linker platform technology under an exclusive multi-target research agreement effective as of June 2017. Takeda provided different antibodies to Heidelberg Pharma to generate new ATACs?. ATACs? are ADCs (Antibody Drug Conjugates) based on Heidelberg Pharma's ATAC? technology.

The license agreement was concluded following Takeda?s exercise of its option to exclusively license the worldwide development and commercialization rights for using the ATAC? technology with an antibody directed to a defined target and the resulting product candidates. Heidelberg Pharma receives an undisclosed milestone payment in return and is eligible to receive potential future clinical development, regulatory and sales-related milestone payments.
