Midatech has announced it has entered into a research collaboration with Dr Reddy’s Laboratories (BSE:500124, NSE:DRREDDY, NYSE:RDY) (‘Dr. Reddy’s), the global pharmaceutical company.
One (or possibly more) of the Group’s proprietary technology platforms, each with their own unique mechanism focused on improving bio-delivery and biodistribution, is/are to be applied together with its in-house expertise, to certain of Dr Reddy’s nominated existing medicines with a view to expanding their treatment options.
Such an endorsement ideally reflects the value and unique qualities of Midatech’s technologies for drug development beyond that of its own internal pipeline.
The scale of Dr Reddy’s portfolio of products and services, that stretch across multiple therapeutic areas and reach global consumers, now presents a potentially giant, reputation-building opportunity for the Group from which it could accrue a stream of long-term licence fees, followed by milestone payments and royalties upon successful commercialisation of any co-developed product(s).
