Sanofi, Regeneron to restructure antibody collaboration for Kevzara & Praluent
Sanofi, a global biopharmaceutical company, and Regeneron Pharmaceuticals Inc, a leading biotechnology company, announced their intent to simplify antibody collaboration for Kevzara (sarilumab) and Praluent (alirocumab) by restructuring into a royalty-based agreement.
Under the proposed restructuring, Sanofi is expected to gain sole global rights to Kevzara and sole ex-US rights to Praluent. Regeneron is expected to gain sole US rights to Praluent.
Under the proposed terms of the agreement, each party will be solely responsible for funding development and commercialization expenses in their respective territories. These changes are expected to increase efficiency and streamline operations for the products. The existing collaboration relating to Dupixent (dupilumab) will remain unchanged following the restructuring. Completion of the proposed agreement is expected to be finalised in the first quarter of 2020.
