United States: WilmerHale Reps Infinity Pharma In $28M Licensing Agreement With Verastem
Last Updated: November 11 2016

Verastem, Inc. and Infinity Pharmaceuticals, Inc. announced that the companies entered into a license agreement under which Verastem licensed exclusive worldwide rights to develop and commercialize Infinity's oncology product candidate duvelisib, an oral inhibitor of phosphoinositide-3-kinase (PI3K)-delta and PI3K-gamma being investigated for the treatment of hematologic cancers.

Verastem will pay Infinity up to $28 million in milestones, with positive data from DUO®, a Phase 3, randomized monotherapy study of duvelisib in patients with relapsed/refractory CLL, triggering the first milestone payment, and royalties on net sales.

The WilmerHale deal team was led by Partners Belinda Juran and Steven Singer and included Associate Alex Civetta.
