In May 2014, Array announced a collaboration with Biogen Idec for the discovery and development of inhibitors targeting a novel kinase for the treatment of autoimmune disorders.
The collaboration target and lead inhibitors were discovered through Array's proprietary Kinase-Directed Phenotypic Screening Platform. This technology relies on Array's deep experience in kinase inhibitor chemistry and phenotypic screening which can be applied to any therapeutic area where a desired cellular phenotype can be envisioned.
Biogen will be responsible for all aspects of clinical development and commercialization. The agreement includes research funding for three years, various milestone payments payable upon achievement of certain development and commercial milestones, and royalties to Array.
