Tuesday, January 24, 2023

Takeda announced that it has entered into an exclusive licensing agreement with HUTCHMED (China) Limited and its subsidiary HUTCHMED Limited, for the further development and commercialisation of fruquintinib outside of mainland China, Hong Kong and Macau.

Approved in China in 2018, fruquintinib is a highly selective and potent inhibitor of vascular endothelial growth factor receptors (VEGFR) -1, 2 and 3. Fruquintinib is orally administered and has the potential to be used across subtypes of refractory metastatic colorectal cancer (CRC), regardless of biomarker status.

Under the terms of the agreement, Takeda will receive an exclusive worldwide license to develop and commercialise fruquintinib in all indications and territories outside of mainland China, Hong Kong and Macau. Subject to the terms of the agreement, Takeda will pay HUTCHMED US$400 million upfront, up to US$730 million in additional potential payments relating to regulatory, development and commercial sales milestones, as well as royalties on net sales. The deal is subject to customary closing conditions, including completion of antitrust reviews.
