First-in-class treatment for acute leukemia

think it has the potential to make a big difference in the treatment of AML. In fact the European Medicines Agency has designated AML an orphan disease as there is a big medical need and no other treatment available." For AML treatment, the new drug is anticipated to achieve the same result as marrow bone transplantations 50-70% of patients surviving and improving.

Although there are already other therapies for chronic myeloid leukaemia, there is still a need for better treatment options. When one of the main existing treatments for CML was introduced, it quickly reached a market of over $1 billion a year. There are about the same number of patients with AML and CML in the western world, so the market for a new effective cancer treatment is very promising.

Fruitful partnership

This particularly successful EUREKA project built on the complementary skills of the small innovative and dynamic biotech company and the larger pharmaceutical company, with its technology base and experience of clinical drug development. The project was financially supportive to Innate Pharma; particularly important in the early stages by enabling investigative work that would otherwise not have been possible from the start. This generated a momentum and early progress that helped win further investment from Novo Nordisk during the collaboration, Novo Nordisk became a main investor in Innate Pharma.

The Danish company benefited through sharing Innate Pharma's early concept, and by gaining access to Innate Pharma's patents on the strategic approach to the drug design. This was critical to the project and laid the foundation for a larger series of patent applications filed by the two companies in collaboration. The French company's patent platform and technical competences were complemented by drug-discovery and clinical skills from the Danish partner.
