Nutropin Depot

Roche Holding AG

Drug Names(s): somatropin depot

Description: Nutropin Depot is a long-acting Nutropin formulation that reduces the frequency of injections by encapsulating the drug in biodegradable microspheres.

Nutropin, Nutropin AQ, Nutropin Depot, and Protropin are Genentech’s four recombinant human growth hormone/somatropin formulations indicated for the treatment of short stature.

Deal Structure: Revenue splits for this drug are BioMedTracker estimates.

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.

Partners: Alkermes plc
