Latest From Shire PLC
Scrip spoke with Managing Director Julie Sunderland about Biomatics' new $300m fund. Also, Silicon Valley Bank reveals its surprising Leerink buy, Perceptive Advisors raises $675m, Roivant brings in another $200m, and cell and gene therapy financings surge in the third quarter.
Takeda is hoping to start 2019 with a bang, saying its huge acquisition of Shire might become a done deal as early as January 8. Speculation continues meanwhile on possible post-merger divestments to help pay down associated debt.
Through its Provention collaboration, Amgen partnered with the team that worked on AMG 714 at Celimmune, which the big biotech bought in 2017. Lilly will partner with NextCure to use the latter's FIND-IO platform for immuno-oncology drug discovery.
With $120m in Series A funding, the new company headed by former Lumena execs will advance maralixibat into Phase III in Alagille syndrome and progressive familial intrahepatic cholestasis. Shire acquired Lumena for $260m in 2014, but lost interest in the drug.
