Lilly Acquires CGRP Antibody from Arteaus Therapeutics



Eli Lilly has acquired all development rights for a calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP) antibody currently being studied as a potential treatment for the prevention of frequent, recurrent migraine headaches. CGRP is a sensoryneuropeptide with vascular and pro-inflammatory effects, two processes thathave been implicated in migraine headaches. Lilly's CGRP antibody is a biologic entity injected subcutaneously that binds and inhibits the activity of CGRP, which is released during activation of sensory neurons involved in pain signaling.

This molecule (LY2951742) was discovered by Lilly scientists and then licensed to Arteaus Therapeutics for development in the clinical proof-of-concept study. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.
