29 August 2014 - French ophthalmic company Nicox SA (EPA:COX) said Friday it had signed an exclusive deal with Japanese peer Nitto Medic for the distribution in Japan of Nicox's in-vitro diagnostic test, AdenoPlus, for the differential diagnosis of acute conjunctivitis.

As part of the accord, Nitto Medic will provide an upfront payment of EUR 500,000 (USD 659,000) to Nicox and will purchase AdenoPlus tests from the French firm. Nitto Medic will also be responsible for securing regulatory clearance for the product in Japan prior to its launch. AdenoPlus is anticipated to be introduced in the country over the next 18 months, pending regulatory licence.

Nicox holds global rights outside North America for the test under an agreement with Rapid Pathogen Screening Inc (RPS). Nicox launched AdenoPlus in France, Germany, Italy, Spain and the UK in the first half of the year and has agreements with third parties in Switzerland, Turkey, Benelux, South Africa and Poland.
