Palatin Technologies Announces Option Extension For License To Bremelanotide In Europe

CRANBURY, N.J., March 31, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Palatin Technologies, Inc. (NYSE MKT: PTN), a biopharmaceutical company developing targeted, receptor-specific peptide therapeutics for the treatment of diseases with significant unmet medical need and commercial potential, announced that it has granted an extension until April 30, 2014 to an existing option agreement with a potential commercial partner for an exclusive license to bremelanotide for female sexual dysfunction indications in selected European countries, including the European Union. 

Palatin received a $1.0 million, non-refundable option fee under the option agreement. Subject to certain contingencies, if not exercised, the option will expire on April 30, 2014. 

The option agreement is with a European specialty pharmaceutical company with pharmaceutical manufacturing, research and development, sales and marketing capabilities.  As part of the option agreement, the parties sought and received clear regulatory advice from the European Medicines Agency (EMA) on the phase 3 clinical data required for approval of bremelanotide for female sexual dysfunction in the European Union. The extension is to allow the potential optionee to complete its comprehensive market assessment, including qualitative and quantitative surveys, in selected countries.

"We believe the European Union is a significant market for female sexual dysfunction and we are pleased with the relationship with our potential European partner," stated Carl Spana, Ph.D., President and CEO of Palatin.  "The discussions with EMA have proceeded exceptionally well and we believe their guidance on a phase 3 program and approval pathway has been positive and clear.  We are also in active discussions with multiple pharmaceutical companies on commercialization of bremelanotide in the United States."
