Genta Announces Licensing Agreement for Worldwide Development and Commercialization of a Leading Oral Taxane, Tesetaxel
Date:3/7/2008

BERKELEY HEIGHTS, N.J., March 7 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Genta Incorporated (Nasdaq: GNTA) announced today the Company has entered into an exclusive worldwide licensing agreement with Daiichi Sankyo Company, Limited (TYO: 4568) for the development and commercialization of tesetaxel (formerly known as DJ-927).

Thus, the drug offers substantial opportunities to improve patient convenience, safety, and anticancer activity.

Under terms of the agreement, Daiichi Sankyo will receive upfront payments, payments pursuant to the achievement of certain milestones, and royalties on product sales.

More than 250 patients worldwide have been treated with oral tesetaxel in Phase I and Phase 2 clinical trials. The major side-effect of tesetaxel in cl
