Consort Medical Signs VapourSoft® Development Agreement with Regeneron
Consort Medical plc ("Consort Medical", "Consort") (LSE: CSRT), is pleased to announce that it has entered into a development agreement including key commercial supply terms with Regeneron Pharmaceuticals, Inc., a leading global biopharmaceutical company. The agreement provides for Consort's proprietary VapourSoft technology to be incorporated into a novel drug delivery device designed by Regeneron.
In the event that Regeneron elects to commercialise the developed device, the parties will enter into a full commercial supply agreement with manufacturing to be undertaken by Consort for both the VapourSoft technology and the drug delivery device itself.
VapourSoft is one of a range of novel technologies developed at Consort's Innovation Centre based in Cambridge, United Kingdom. Through the use of a liquid gas propellant, rather than a spring to drive the delivery of the drug, VapourSoft facilitates delivery of a broader range of drug formulations and volumes.
Jonathan Glenn, CEO of Consort Medical, commented: "We are delighted to be working with such a leading biotechnology innovator as Regeneron to develop novel devices for injectable drug delivery. The agreement recognises the wide applicability of the VapourSoft technology as a power source for auto-injectors and the potential for incorporation into devices where conventional spring-based systems may not be suitable".
