PharmAkea Announces Strategic Collaboration with Celgene

PharmAkea has announced a strategic collaboration with Celgene that will utilise its proprietary drug discovery platform to discover and develop small-molecule treatments for cancer and fibrotic diseases. Based on the agreement, Celgene is to pay PharmAkea USD 35 million towards the three-year collaboration, with an option to extend the term of the agreement with additional funding. PharmAkea was founded in 2012 by three former Amira Pharmaceuticals (US) drug researchers with the help of seed funding from Celgene. The collaboration will serve to propel the oncology and fibrosis programmes forward and may set the stage for a potential merger of the two companies in the future.
