Kinex Pharmaceuticals and Zenith Technology Corporation announce the execution of a collaborative licensing agreement
Date:5/6/2013

BUFFALO, N.Y., May 6, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Kinex Pharmaceuticals and Zenith Technology Corporation, through its affiliate ZenRx, announced today the execution of a collaborative licensing agreement granting Zenith Technology commercial rights to Oraxol and Oratecan in New Zealand and Australia.  ZenRx will provide an upfront payment, milestones and royalties.  Importantly, Zenith Technology Corporation will commit a significant amount of resources to the Oraxol and Oratecan global development programs, providing Kinex and its Asian partner, Hanmi Pharmaceuticals (Seoul, South Korea) additional clinical programs, supporting global registrations in a non-dilutive fashion.

The Orascovery technology has led to the initiation of trials being conducted with both an oral formulation of paclitaxel (Oraxol), currently in Phase II clinical trials in Korea, and an oral formulation of Irinotecan (Oratecan), which has completed a Phase I clinical trial in Korea. Additional trials are being planned in both Korea and t
