BANGALORE, India--Biocon Ltd. (532523.BY) Friday said it has entered into an agreement with Bristol-Myers Squibb Co. (>> Bristol Myers Squibb Co.) on a licensing deal for its experimental biopharmaceutical drug IN-105, which is an orally administered insulin.

Under the terms of the agreement, the New York-headquartered company will have the right to exercise an option to obtain a global license for IN-105 on the successful completion of mid-stage trials for the experimental drug by Biocon, the Indian company said in a statement.

Biocon, which develops biological treatments that use proteins manufactured in living cells, is India's largest biotechnology company by revenue.

It has been seeking alliances with other drug makers for further development of the experimental drug under a licensing agreement.

If Bristol-Myers Squibb decides to obtain the license for IN-105, the U.S. company will assume full responsibility for the development program, including all development and commercialization activities outside India, the statement said.

In return, Biocon will receive a license fee, potential payments when IN-105 achieves certain regulatory and commercial milestones, as well as royalties on commercial sales of IN-105 outside India, the statement added.

Biocon will retain exclusive rights to IN-105 in India.

Indian drug makers often seek to develop drugs in partnership with foreign companies because they can help finance costly and lengthy research. At the same time, global companies are keen to cooperate with Indian companies because of lower costs, the availability of skilled scientists in the South Asian country, as well as the prospect of adding new products to their portfolios.
