Partnered Research and Development
The following table shows our most advanced partnered programs and their stage in the drug development process.
Our significant clinical stage partners include:
- ASLAN Pharmaceuticals - We entered into a Collaboration and License Agreement with ASLAN Pharmaceuticals in July 2011 to develop Array's HER2 / EGFR inhibitor, ARRY-543, or ASLAN001, which is currently in a Phase 2 clinical trial in patients with gastric cancer.
- AstraZeneca - In December 2003, we entered into a Collaboration and License Agreement with AstraZeneca under which AstraZeneca received a license to three of our MEK inhibitors for cancer, including selumetinib, which is currently in multiple Phase 2 clinical trials.
- Genentech - We entered into a worldwide strategic Drug Discovery Collaboration Agreement with Genentech in January 2003, which was expanded in 2005, 2008, and 2009, and is focused on the discovery, development and commercialization of novel therapeutics. The most advanced drug is GDC-0068, an AKT inhibitor for cancer, which is currently in a Phase 2 trial. We also entered into a License Agreement with Genentech in August 2011 for the development of each company's small-molecule Chk-1 program in oncology. The programs include Genentech's compound GDC-0425 (RG7602), and Array's compound GDC-0575 (previously known as ARRY-575), both of which are being tested in Phase 1 clinical trials in patients with cancer.
- InterMune (program acquired by Roche) - We entered into a Drug Discovery Collaboration Agreement with InterMune in 2002, which resulted in the joint discovery of danoprevir, a novel small molecule inhibitor of the Hepatitis C Virus NS3/4A protease. Roche Holding AG acquired danoprevir from InterMune in 2010. Danoprevir is currently in Phase 2 clinical trials.
- Novartis - We entered into a License Agreement with Novartis in April 2010 for the worldwide development and commercialization of our MEK inhibitor, MEK162, and other MEK inhibitors identified in the agreement. MEK162 is currently in numerous clinical trials, including two Phase 3 trials in patients with cancer.
- Oncothyreon - We entered into a Development and Commercialization Agreement with Oncothyreon in May 2013 to collaborate on the development and commercialization of ARRY-380, an orally active, reversible and selective small-molecule HER2 inhibitor, for the treatment of cancer, including breast cancer. Array recently completed a Phase 1 trial of ARRY-380 in patients with metastatic breast cancer, and Oncothyreon will continue development of ARRY-380 in a defined set of proof-of-concept trials in patients with metastatic breast cancer, including patients with brain metastases.
We have received a total of $600.5 million in research funding and in up-front and milestone payments from our partnerships and collaborations from inception through June 30, 2013, including $143 million in initial payments from strategic agreements with Amgen, Genentech, Novartis and Oncothyreon that we entered into over the last four years. Our existing partnered programs entitle Array to receive a total of approximately $2.7 billion in additional milestone payments if we or our partners achieve the drug discovery, development and commercialization objectives detailed in those agreements. We also have the potential to earn royalties on any resulting product sales or share in the proceeds from development or commercialization arrangements resulting from 10 partnered programs.
