Lipigon and HitGen extend collaboration agreement on dyslipidemia project

Lipigon Pharmaceuticals AB ("Lipigon"), developer of therapeutics for lipid-related diseases, and HitGen Inc. ("HitGen") have extended the collaboration agreement on the development of small molecules for the treatment of dyslipidemia and cardiometabolic disease until 7 July 2024.

Since May 2020, Lipigon and HitGen have been collaborating on the development of small molecules for the treatment of dyslipidemia, cardiovascular disease, and other metabolic diseases.

Under the collaboration, by using HitGen's proprietary DEL screening platform, the companies successfully identified novel small molecules that bind to lipoprotein lipase and are working on a second undisclosed target. These binders can be good starting points for developing a drug candidate within the framework of Lipigon's dyslipidemia project.

The agreement between Lipigon and HitGen is an extension of previous research terms. In the current agreement, Lipigon is responsible for clinical development and out-licensing commercial rights of the drug candidates while HitGen is entitled to revenue sharing for any candidate resulting from the collaboration.

"This is a token of the fruitful collaboration we have had so far with HitGen. Both teams work hard and are committed to the development of new small molecules and we are therefore excited to extend the partnership giving us more time working together," said Stefan K. Nilsson, CEO of Lipigon.

"It is a privilege to work with Lipigon's experienced scientists and the current work demonstrates again the power of HitGen's proprietary DNA encoded library technology in identifying novel potent binders for different and challenging targets. We look forward to developing the binders further into candidates with Lipigon by extending the current contract," said Jin Li., Chairman & CEO of HitGen.

Lipigon presenterade i förra veckan resultat från den pågående fas 1-studiens första del (SAD) med bolagets lipidsänkande läkemedelskandidat Lipisense. Studien uppnådde sitt viktigaste syfte där Lipisense tolererades väl hos patienterna och inga allvarliga biverkningar rapporterades. Trots denna goda nyhet sätter Analysguiden ett motiverat värde om 7,0 (11,6) kronor på Lipigon, vilket beror på fortsatt svagt börsklimat.
