Lpath entered into an agreement with Pfizer in late 2010 that provides Pfizer an exclusive option for a worldwide license to develop and commercialize iSONEP for ocular indications. Pfizer and Lpath are collaborating closely on the two iSONEP clinical trials.
Pfizer also has a right of first refusal, which expires in late 2013, for Lpath's cancer drug candidate, ASONEP™. Lpath is planning to further investigate ASONEP in a Phase 2 trial involving renal cell carcinoma patients and perhaps in a second trial involving patients with prostate cancer or neuroblastoma.
San Diego-based Lpath, a therapeutic antibody company, is the category leader in lipidomics-based therapeutics, an emerging field of medicine that targets bioactive signaling lipids for treating a wide range of human disease. Lpath's ImmuneY2™ drug-discovery engine has the unique ability to generate therapeutic antibodies that bind to and inhibit bioactive lipids that contribute to disease. The company has developed three drug candidates, two of which -- iSONEP for wet AMD and ASONEP for cancer -- have completed Phase 1 clinical trials. Lpath entered into an agreement with Pfizer in 2010 that provides Pfizer an exclusive option for a worldwide license to develop and commercialize iSONEP. For more information, visit www.Lpath.com.
