2012年12月29日讯 /生物谷BIOON/ -- Teva公司新任CEOJeremy Levin放弃与以色列的Proteologics一项关于癌症药物研究的长期合作协议。

Proteologics一直致力于E3泛素连接酶抑制剂的研究。E3泛素连接酶是蛋白质降解的关键酶,被认为是开发新抗癌药物的一个方向。

同时,Teva还与GlaxoSmithKline有着类似的合作协议,但是Teva新任CEOJeremy Levin决定改变过去的研发策略,由研发仿制药转型为更多样化的医药企业。(生物谷Bioon.com)

详细英文报道:

The new CEO at Teva Pharmaceutical ($TEVA) is jettisoning a long-standing cancer drug development pact with Israel's Proteologics. Globes is reporting that Teva is handing back the molecules identified over the 7 years the two companies have collaborated together.

Proteologics has been at work developing inhibitors of E3 ubiquitin ligases, enzymes that play a key biologic function regulating protein breakdown, a pathway the biotech believes can be followed to find new anti-cancer drugs as well as therapies for metabolic disease and CNS disorders.

The biotech also has a pact with GlaxoSmithKline ($GSK), but Teva is taking a new strategic direction under the guidance of newly-named CEO Jeremy Levin. Levin has vowed to beef up its R&D work with an eye to reshaping the big generics player into a fully diversified Big Pharma player. But in the process he's also been undertaking a thorough review of all of its programs in the pipeline.

"In view of Teva's strategic change, we concluded with its management to terminate our collaboration in these projects," said Proteologics CEO Joshua Levine, according to the Globes article. "We believe that we can use our know-how to continue development of these products for the relevant indications, and that we will find new partners to continue the development of promising molecules by signing agreements with leading international pharmaceutical companies. We believe that any agreement that we sign for the further development of the molecules will create value for the company's shareholders."
