Pieris AG has achieved the third milestone for its lead Anticalin® program with Daiichi Sankyo Company Limited (hereinafter Daiichi Sankyo; headquartered in Chuo Ward, Tokyo, TSE 4568), triggering an undisclosed payment, the company announced today. This milestone marks in total the fourth milestone achieved for the parties' two R&D collaborative projects. Specifically, the milestone achieved was the progression of an Anticalin drug candidate through a non-GLP toxicity study in non-human primates. In 2013, Pieris transferred the program to Daiichi Sankyo, which successfully carried out this study.

"This milestone is a very meaningful step towards the clinic for yet another Anticalin therapeutic, and the speed with which Daiichi Sankyo is advancing the program demonstrates their commitment and the straightforward development pathway for Anticalins," Stephen Yoder, CEO of Pieris stated. "As our collaborations continue to bear fruit and partnered drug candidates mature, milestone income increasingly will become a material component of Pieris' source of capital."

Under the terms of the 2011 agreement, Pieris receives committed research funding and payments for the achievement of research, preclinical, regulatory and commercial milestones. The partnership could encompass for Pieris more than € 100 million per program in license fees, funding and milestones, not including royalties on sales from marketed Anticalin proteins resulting from the collaboration. Daiichi Sankyo will have exclusive marketing rights worldwide for all such products.

Anticalins are therapeutic proteins derived from human lipocalins, rationally engineered to solve for the pharmacological and pharmaceutical limitations of both protein- and non-protein-based drug platforms.
