LYON, France--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Regulatory News:
Adocia (Paris:ADOC) (Euronext Paris: FR0011184241 – ADOC), a clinical stage biopharmaceutical company focused on diabetes and other metabolic diseases with innovative formulations of approved proteins, announced today that it has filed additional arbitration claims against Eli Lilly & Company (“Lilly”) arising out of Lilly’s misappropriation and improper use of Adocia’s confidential information and discoveries as well as Lilly’s breaches of several collaboration and confidentiality agreements. Adocia seeks monetary damages of over USD 200 million, as well as equitable and injunctive relief. Adocia anticipates a decision on these claims by the third quarter of 2018.
Adocia had previously announced in October 2017 that it commenced an arbitration proceeding against Lilly arising out of the collaborative research and license agreement signed in 2014, seeking an award of approximately USD 11 million, and other specific relief, relating to Lilly’s change of the product development plan. Adocia continues to expect a decision on this claim in the second quarter of 2018.
Adocia will provide no additional comment on these private proceedings until their conclusion.
Adocia is a clinical-stage biotechnology company that specializes in the development of innovative formulations of already-approved therapeutic proteins and peptides. Adocia’s portfolio of injectable treatments for diabetes, featuring five clinical-stage products and three preclinical products, is among the largest and most differentiated of the industry. Adocia expanded its portfolio to develop treatments for obesity and short bowel syndrome.
The proprietary BioChaperone® technological platform is designed to enhance the effectiveness and/or safety of therapeutic proteins while making them easier for patients to use. Adocia customizes BioChaperone to each protein for a given application to address specific patient needs.
Adocia’s clinical pipeline includes four novel insulin formulations for the treatment of diabetes: two ultra-rapid formulations of insulin analog lispro (BioChaperone Lispro U100 and U200), a rapid-acting formulation of human insulin (HinsBet U100) and a combination of basal insulin glargine and rapid-acting insulin lispro (BioChaperone Combo). An aqueous formulation of human glucagon (BioChaperone Human Glucagon) successfully completed a Phase 1 trial. Adocia also develops a prandial combination of human insulin with amylin analog pramlintide (BioChaperone Pramlintide hIns), two combinations of insulin glargine with GLP-1 receptor agonists (BioChaperone Glargine Dulaglutide and BioChaperone Glargine Liraglutide), a ready-to-use aqueous formulation of teduglutide (BioChaperone Teduglutide) and a ready-to-use combination of glucagon and exenatide (BioChaperone Glucagon Exenatide), all of which are in preclinical development.
