Molecular Partners - Partners



In 2011, the Company licensed its lead asset MP0112, now called abicipar, to Allergan. In 2012, Molecular Partners and Allergan expanded their relationship by signing two separate new agreements to discover, develop, and commercialize proprietary therapeutic DARPin® products for the treatment of serious ophthalmic diseases. The Company received combined upfront payments of $107.5 million under the three agreements and is eligible to potentially receive additional success-based payments, including up to $1.7 billion in aggregate development, regulatory and sales milestones, and tiered royalties for future product sales.
