BioInvent Receives Milestone Payment Related to TAK-169 Investigational New Drug Application

LUND, Sweden, July 4, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- BioInvent International AB (BINV) today announced it will receive a $0.5 million milestone payment related to the acceptance by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration of the Investigational New Drug (IND) application for TAK-169, a first-in-class CD38-targeted fusion protein. The IND was filed by Takeda Pharmaceutical Company Limited under a co-development agreement with Molecular Templates. This milestone relates to BioInvent's proprietary n-CoDeR® antibody library and its role in the discovery of the investigational compound.

Takeda is developing TAK-169 under a royalty and milestone agreement with XOMA Corporation (NASDAQ: XOMA). BioInvent and XOMA have a long-standing cross-licensing agreement covering BioInvent's proprietary n-CoDeR® antibody library and XOMA's bacterial protein expression technology.

Martin Welschof, CEO of BioInvent, said, "This is validating that our n-CoDeR® platform not only yields highly promising drug candidates for BioInvent's proprietary programs, but is also helping our partners in building their own pipelines."
