Tay Licenses Oral BET Inhibitor to VYNE Therapeutics

The Cambridge Life Sciences team advised Tay on entering into a license agreement with VYNE Therapeutics, under which VYNE obtained exclusive rights to Tay’s oral BET inhibitor, TAY-B2 (VYN202).

This is the second licence between Tay and VYNE that the Goodwin team have advised on. In 2021, Goodwin advised Tay on out-licencing its topical pan-BET inhibitor to VYNE for £16 million in upfront and milestone payments. The out-licensing of both of Tay Therapeutics’ BET inhibitor projects will now bring potential milestone revenues of over $65 million for the first indications along. In addition, it will yield royalty payments of up to 10% of net annual sales.

The Goodwin team was led by Tim Worden and Georgia Powell.
