Heptares Achieves First Research Milestone in Research Collaboration with Cubist
Date:7/22/2013

WELWYN GARDEN CITY, England and BOSTON, July 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

StaR® Generated to Important GPCR Target Selected by Cubist

Heptares Therapeutics, the leading GPCR drug discovery and development company, announces it has achieved the first research milestone in its collaboration with Cubist Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NASDAQ: CBST), which was announced in January 2013. The milestone is based on the generation of a stabilised (StaR®) form of a GPCR target selected by Cubist, a key step that will enable the structure of the target to be elucidated and a full structure-based drug design (SBDD) programme to be launched.

Cubist will make an undisclosed payment to Heptares as a result of this research milestone being achieved. Under the terms of the agreement, the collaboration is focusing on up to two GPCR drug targets to be selected by Cubist. Heptares has already received US$5.5 million upfront for the first target, and is eligible to receive up to approximately US$4 million in research funding plus milestones and royalties. Cubist also has the option to nominate a second GPCR target at a later point in the collaboration, which Heptares has agreed to work on according to pre-determined financials. Further terms of the agreement are not disclosed.

To date, Heptares has achieved all scientific milestones in its collaborations on or ahead of schedule, highlighting the power of its GPCR-focused platform. The structural information that Heptares can routinely access for a range of validated drug targets is being used to advance SBDD programmes and to develop lead candidates in multiple disease indications both in house and with partners.
