Description: VX-787 is a medicine in development designed to treat influenza A, including H1 (pandemic) and H5 (avian) influenza strains. VX-787 is the first of a new class of molecules that aims to treat influenza in a way that is distinct from neuraminidase inhibitors, the current standard of care for the treatment of influenza, and from other previous approaches to the treatment of influenza.
Janssen and Vertex
In June 2014, Vertex Pharmaceuticals entered into a licensing agreement with Janssen Pharmaceuticals for the worldwide development and commercialization of VX-787 for the treatment of influenza.
Under the terms of the collaboration, Janssen will have full global development and commercialization rights to VX-787. Vertex will receive a $30 million up-front payment from Janssen and could receive additional development and commercial milestone payments as well as royalties on future product sales. The collaboration, and the related $30 million up-front payment, is subject to the expiration of the waiting period under the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act.
