MX-2401 (IV lipopeptide; treatment of gram-positive bacterial infections): Good Laboratory Practices ("GLP") non-clinical studies were initiated in April 2007. Timing for completion of the GLP studies is dependent upon (1) additional manufacturing process development work; (2) initiation of the remaining required GLP studies; and (3) financial resources. Prior to initiating clinical trials in humans with MX-2401 the Company will need to complete the GLP studies, manufacture clinical trial GMP quality MX-2401, submit and obtain regulatory approval for initiating clinical studies, and various other activities. A $9.3 million investment commitment from Technology Partnerships Canada is associated with this program.
MX-4565 (small molecule; treatment of neurodegenerative diseases): In June 2007 we were awarded a grant from the Michael J. Fox Foundation to fund research in our MX-4565 program. The grant award agreement provides Elan Pharmaceuticals with a limited right to license the technology arising from the project for certain uses in the field of human disease.
