Novo Nordisk to terminate GLP-1 patch collaboration agreement with Zosano Pharma

Zosano Pharma Corporation, a clinical-stage specialty pharmaceutical company, announced that Novo Nordisk has notified Zosano of its intention to discontinue the collaboration agreement related to development of a transdermal presentation of select NVO glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) analogues.

Zosano has been notified that the decision relates to a strategic prioritization of NVO’s research portfolio despite continued progress during the collaboration period. Upon the expected termination of the agreement, all technology rights licensed to Novo Nordisk related to the field of GLP-1 products will revert to Zosano.

Zosano and NVO entered into a collaboration agreement in January 2014 to develop a new transdermal presentation of NVO proprietary human GLP-1 analogues, to be administered once weekly using Zosano’s microneedle patch system for the treatment of type 2 diabetes.
