Raymond A. Miller and N. Nicole Stakleff, Pittsburgh attorneys in Pepper Hamilton’s Intellectual Property Practice, and Tom Petzinger, Executive Vice President of Business Development and Public Affairs of Knopp Neurosciences Inc., identify the intellectual property and regulatory exclusivity strategies necessary for emerging life science companies to secure investments, strategic partnerships or licenses with third parties.
In addition to reviewing critical IP strategies, this podcast discusses the recent Knopp – Biogen Idec transaction, in which Pepper served as IP counsel. Knopp developed the drug, dexpramipexole, for the treatment of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease, and potentially other indications. In August, Biogen Idec and Knopp Neurosciences entered into an exclusive, worldwide license agreement under which Biogen Idec will develop and commercialize the drug.
