Description: Numax is an enhanced potency humanized respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) monoclonal antibody.

Deal Structure: Numax was originally developed by MedImmune.

In 2005, MedImmune and Abbott International (AI) amended the international distribution agreement for Synagis to include rights for the exclusive, potential future distribution of Numax (motavizumab), a second generation anti-RSV. Under the terms of the amended agreement, AI will be working to secure regulatory approval of Numax outside of the U.S. and, assuming receipt of such approval, will distribute and market Numax outside of the United States. As a part of this agreement, Medimmune will have the option to co-promote Numax with AI in up to seven countries outside of the United States.

In June 2007, AstraZeneca closed its acquisition of MedImmune.

Partners: AbbVie Inc.
