Amphista Therapeutics Achieves First Discovery Milestone in Collaboration with Bristol Myers Squibb

Thursday, May 04, 2023

Amphista Therapeutics announced the delivery of the first discovery milestone under its collaboration and license agreement with Bristol Myers Squibb, triggering a payment for achieving the milestone.

The collaboration and license agreement with Bristol Myers Squibb was announced on May 4, 2022 and included a $30 million upfront payment, the potential for up to $1.25 billion in performance-based milestone payments and payment for a limited expansion of the collaboration, as well as royalties on global net sales of products. Amphista is responsible for the discovery and development of small molecule protein degraders using Eclipsys™, its next-generation TPD platform. Bristol Myers Squibb is granted a global exclusive license to the resulting degraders and will be responsible for further development and commercialization activities.

Amphista's next generation bifunctional molecules use a novel approach that makes use of a wider range of the body's own innate protein degrading mechanisms than those used by most other TPD companies. This proprietary approach offers the potential to overcome many of the limitations seen with current TPD approaches, providing the opportunity to treat a wider range of diseases. Amphista is focused on biological targets with a high level of clinical or genetic validation.
