M2 EQUITYBITES-October 29, 2014-Cancer Research UK's commercial unit signs contract with Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research


Cancer Research UK's commercial unit has signed a contract with Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research, it was reported yesterday. The agreement has been signed to co-fund the early-phase human clinical trials of experimental blood cancer drugs.

According to the contract, Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research will provide access to new therapies currently being researched by its scientists and provide financial support for Cancer Research UK to develop these therapies through preclinical and early-phase clinical development.

Cancer Research UK's Centre for Drug Development will manage these clinical trials at various hospitals throughout the United Kingdom. As part of the five-year deal, around five clinical trials will be financed using funds collected from successfully marketed drugs that are being shared by both parties.
