Sanofi to Acquire Kymab for up to $1.45 Billion

Sanofi announced that it has entered into an agreement to acquire Kymab, a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company developing fully human monoclonal antibodies with a focus on immune-mediated diseases and immuno-oncology therapeutics, for an upfront payment of approximately $1.1 billion and up to $350 million upon achievement of certain milestones.  The acquisition will give Sanofi full global rights to Kymab’s KY1005, which binds to OX40-Ligand and has the potential to treat a wide variety of immune-mediated diseases and inflammatory disorders. In August 2020, Kymab announced that KY1005 met both primary endpoints in a Phase 2a trial studying moderate to severe atopic dermatitis patients whose disease is inadequately controlled with topical corticosteroids.
