Karo Bio

Drug Names(s): KB2115

Description: Eprotirome works by selectively stimulating the thyroid hormone receptor which is the protein in the body that mediates the effects of thyroid hormone. Eprotirome has receptor and tissue selective properties and therefore negative effects on the heart that are the result of using natural thyroid hormone can be avoided.

Deal Structure: In April 2011, Karo Bio announced that the company and Alkem Laboratories entered into a collaboration and license agreement regarding eprotirome. Karo Bio will grant Alkem rights to commercialize eprotirome in India and certain other markets in Asia-Pacific and Africa. Karo Bio is entitled to royalty on Alkem's future sales of eprotirome.
