Astellas licenses Vical vax for $130M

Tools

Japan's Astellas will pay up to $130 million to license a vaccine to prevent cytomegalovirus (CMV) reactivation in transplant recipients. The disease is typically dormant in those who are healthy but can cause illness in immunocompromised people. A Phase III trial of TransVax in hematopoietic stem cell transplant recipients and a Phase II study in solid organ transplant patients are slated to begin in 2012.
