Kylin Therapeutics Signs Collaboration with Fort Dodge Animal Health, a Division of Wyeth

WEST LAFAYETTE, IN | Posted on September 20th, 2007

Kylin Therapeutics, Inc., a biotechnology company, announced it has signed a collaboration with Fort Dodge Animal Health, a division of Wyeth (NYSE:WYE), to develop new RNAi therapeutics for the treatment of cancer. Under the terms of the three-year contract, Kylin will receive research funding, milestone payments and royalties.

Under this contract, Kylin will use its patented RNA nanoparticle technology called "pRNA" to explore the enormous potential of RNA interference (RNAi) and develop new RNA-based therapeutics for the treatment of cancer. In return for its participation in this effort, Fort Dodge will receive an exclusive license to the pRNA/RNAi therapeutic compounds for the treatment of cancers in companion animals. Kylin will retain rights to the therapies for human use.

"We are delighted to welcome Fort Dodge/Wyeth as Kylin's partner. Our business models are complementary, and the results of this effort will provide valuable data and intellectual property that will mutually serve our core businesses," said J. Eric Davis, J.D., president and CEO of Kylin Therapeutics.

The pRNA technology was developed by Peixuan Guo at Purdue University.
