AstraZeneca will continue to manufacture Lynparza and selumetinib. AstraZeneca will book all Product Sales of Lynparza and selumetinib; gross profits due to Merck under the collaboration will be recorded under Cost of Sales.
By harnessing the power of four scientific platforms — Immuno-Oncology, Tumour Drivers and Resistance, DNA Damage Response and Antibody-Drug Conjugates — and by championing the development of personalised combinations, AstraZeneca has the vision to redefine cancer treatment and one day eliminate cancer as a cause of death.
This trial is still open and recruiting patients internationally. Merck continues to build its leadership in immuno-oncology with Keytruda as foundational in monotherapy and combination therapy, and this collaboration expands our oncology leadership into the growing targeted therapies of PARP and MEK inhibitors.
AstraZeneca operates in over countries and its innovative medicines are used by millions of patients worldwide. The strategic collaboration is expected to further increase the number of treatment options available to patients. Selumetinib is also being tested in a separate Phase II trial in patients with paediatric neurofibromatosis type-1, and in a Phase I trial with patients suffering from advanced solid tumours.
Frazier, Chief Executive Officer of Merck, said: We look forward to working with AstraZeneca to create greater value for patients and shareholders than if both companies worked independently. The initial, regulatory and commercial milestone payments will be recorded under Externalisation Revenue.
This is a truly exciting step and we are pleased to work with Merck, a company that shares our passion for science to deliver new medicines for cancer patients.
In addition to our core capabilities, we actively pursue innovative partnerships and investments that accelerate the delivery of our strategy as illustrated by our investment in Acerta Pharma in haematology.
