Genentech partnered with Alkermes in January 1995 to use Alkermes microsphere technology to develop a long-acting formulation of Nutropin.
Genentech had partnered with both Schwarz Pharma and Sumitomo to market Nutropin Depot outside the U.S., but later re-acquired rights from both of these partners.
In March 2009, Roche and Genentech announced that they signed a merger agreement under which Roche will acquire the outstanding publicly held interest in Genentech for US95.00 per share in cash, or a total payment of approximately US$46.8 billion to equity holders of Genentech other than Roche. The acquisition was completed on March 26, 2009.
