Under the terms of the extended agreement, Shire will have the right to nominate additional collaboration targets for drug discovery and development.  Santaris will receive an upfront payment and, consistent with the initial agreement, is eligible for research support, pre-clinical, clinical, and sales milestones, as well as royalties on each product emerging from the collaboration.
