Starpharma and Lilly Sign New Drug Delivery Collaboration for Human Pharmaceuticals

Melbourne, Australia | Posted on February 1st, 2010

Under the terms of the agreement Lilly will fund a collaborative research and development program with the aim of creating improved drugs incorporating SPL's proprietary delivery technology, to be commercialised by Lilly.

The agreement announced today relates to the delivery of certain human pharmaceuticals, and is separate and additional to the contract signed in May 2009 in which it was agreed that Starpharma and Elanco (Lilly's animal health division) would work together to develop new animal health products with enhanced properties. The Elanco collaboration continues in its own right.
