Idenix Pharmaceuticals and GlaxoSmithKline Sign Worldwide License Agreement for IDX899, a Novel NNRTI for the Treatment of HIV
Date:2/6/2009

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. and LONDON, Feb. 6 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Idenix Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (Nasdaq: IDIX) and GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) today announced the execution of a license agreement granting GSK exclusive worldwide rights to IDX899. IDX899 is a novel non-nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitor (NNRTI) in Phase II clinical development being developed by Idenix for the treatment of HIV/AIDS. New NNRTIs are needed to address the increasing prevalence of viral resistance and side effects associated with this drug class. To date, IDX899 has demonstrated high potency with low milligram doses, a high barrier to drug resistance, favorable risk/benefit profile, and the convenience of once-a-day administration.

Under the terms of the agreement, GSK will assume all development responsibility and associated costs for IDX899, and Idenix will receive an upfront payment of $34 million and will be eligible to receive up to $416 million in development, regulatory and sales milestones. Furthermore, if IDX899 is successfully developed and commercialized, Idenix will receive double-digit, tiered worldwide royalties.

"GSK, with a well-established HIV franchise and substantial drug development experience, is the ideal collaborator to help maximize the potential of IDX899," said Jean-Pierre Sommadossi, Chief Executive Officer of Idenix. "For Idenix, the significant value created through the license of IDX899 enables us to focus all of our resources on advancing our core strategic HCV assets, which include drug candidates from the three major classes of direct-acting HCV antivirals."

"IDX899 may play a significant role in improving treatment options for people with HIV/AIDS," commented Zhi Hong, Senior Vice President of the Infectious Diseases Centre of Excellence for Drug Discovery (ID CEDD) at GSK. "A once-daily, lower-dose
