ASLAN Pharmaceuticals

ASLAN acquires full rights to varlitinib

Update | Pharmaceutical & healthcare | 10 Jan 2018

In January 2018, ASLAN announced that it had fully acquired the global commercial rights to varlitinib from its partner, Array BioPharma. Previously, the agreement stipulated that ASLAN develop the drug and sublicense it, and we view the current agreement as a significant improvement. We believe that ASLAN brings significant value to the table in Asian development capacity. The licence is now consistent with the goal of directly commercialising varlitinib in the US and parts of Asia.

The company has also planned a Phase II trial of ASLAN003 targeting AML via the novel mechanism of inducing blast differentiation. We initiate at NT$9.5bn or NT$72.87 per share.
