long acting beta 2 agonist, as QVA149.

Under the terms of the agreement, Sosei and Vectura have already received $15 million each and will receive up to $172.5 million each for achieving pre-agreed clinical, regulatory and commercialisation targets for both the monotherapy and combination product. These potential milestones thus total up to $375 million. In addition, royalties on product sales will be paid for the monotherapy and the combination product.

About COPD

COPD is a chronic obstruction of the airways which in the developed world is caused primarily by smoking. Symptoms include chronic bronchitis and/or emphysema which slowly progress and eventually lead to a largely irreversible loss of lung function. COPD is currently the fourth most common cause of death and by 2020 is predicted to become the third most common cause of death and the fourth most important disability causing illness. The total financial burden of lung disease in Europe amounts to nearly EUR102 billion with COPD contributing almost one half of this figure. Around three-quarters of patients with advanced COPD are unable to perform normal everyday activities.

The current market for COPD drug therapy is estimated to be worth around $6 billion per annum and is forecast to grow to $11 billion by 2011 as a result of increasing diagnosis and treatment and the growth of high value new products.
