TORONTO, Aug. 27 /PRNewswire/ -- Drug Royalty LP 2 (DRC) announced today the purchase of 25% of Enzon Pharmaceuticals, Inc.'s (ENZN) worldwide royalty interest in PEG-INTRON for $92.5M.

PEG-INTRON (peginterferon alpha-2b), is approved for the treatment of Hepatitis C and is marketed worldwide by Schering-Plough Corporation (SGP).

Speaking on behalf of DRC, Paul Kirkconnell, Managing Director, said: "DRC is very pleased to be working with Enzon Pharmaceuticals.

Kirkconnell added, "With access to significant capital and a long track record in completing royalty transactions, we take pride in meeting the needs of pharmaceutical companies such as Enzon."

About PEG-INTRON(R)

PEG-INTRON is a PEG-enhanced version of Schering-Plough's alpha interferon product, INTRON(R) A, which is used both as a monotherapy and in combination with REBETOL(R) (ribavirin) capsules for the treatment of chronic hepatitis C. Under Enzon's license agreement with Schering-Plough, Schering-Plough holds an exclusive worldwide license to PEG-INTRON, and Enzon receives royalties on worldwide sales of PEG-INTRON. Schering-Plough is responsible for all manufacturing, marketing, and development activities for PEG-INTRON.
