BIND Therapeutics, a Cambridge, Mass.-based clinical-stage nanomedicine platform company developing targeted and programmable therapeutics called Accurins, has signed an R&D agreement with Merck, through a subsidiary, to discover and develop novel nanomedicines for oncology. This collaboration will leverage BIND’s proprietary nanomedicine technology to create targeted Accurins based on novel, potent payloads from Merck’s preclinical oncology portfolio.
BIND Therapeutics, a clinical-stage nanomedicine platform company developing targeted and programmable therapeutics called Accurins, has entered into a research agreement with Roche to discover novel nanomedicines using Accurins for the treatment of diseases in therapeutic areas outside of oncology. The collaboration will focus on combining BIND’s Accurin technology with Roche’s proprietary therapeutic payloads and targeting ligands.
BIND Therapeutics, a clinical-stage nanomedicine platform company developing targeted and programmable therapeutics called Accurins, has amended its development and commercialization collaboration agreement with Amgen, to extend the period during which Amgen may exercise its option by six months. BIND entered into a global collaboration agreement with Amgen on Jan. 7, to develop and commercialize a kinase inhibitor nanomedicine for treating a range of solid tumors based on BIND’s platform for targeted and programmable nanomedicines and Amgen’s undisclosed proprietary kinase inhibitor. Amgen had 12 months to exercise its option to select a novel Accurin candidate for further development. The option period under the amended collaboration agreement has been extended to July 7, 2014 to allow for completion of the research plan. No other terms of the original agreement have been changed.
BIND Therapeutics, a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company, and AstraZeneca have entered into a strategic collaboration to develop and commercialize an Accurin, a targeted and programmable cancer nanomedicine from BIND’s medicinal nanoengineering platform, based on a molecularly targeted kinase inhibitor developed and owned by AstraZeneca.
