Israel’s Biond Biologics has signed an exclusive global licence agreement, potentially worth more than $1 billion, with French company Sanofi for the development and commercialisation of its BND-22 cancer drug.

Biond, a privately-held biopharma company, developing novel immunotherapies for cancer, said that it will receive a $125 million upfront payment in cash under the deal.

It will also be entitled to receive more than $1 billion in development, regulatory, and sales milestones, as well as tiered double-digit royalty payments, the company said.

BND-22, Biond said, has been shown in preclinical studies to have a broad anti-tumour effect and that it had already submitted a new drug application to the US Food and Drug Administration.

A Phase 1 study to evaluate the safety, tolerability and preliminary anti-tumour activity of BND-22 in advanced cancer patients is planned to start by mid-2021.

Biond will lead the first-in-human study of BND-22, evaluating its safety and tolerability as a single agent and in combination with approved cancer therapeutics, as well as exploring potential associations between BND-22 anti-tumour activity and select tumour and blood-based biomarkers. Sanofi will then assume responsibility for clinical development and commercialisation, Biond said.
