ADC Therapeutics SA announced it has entered into an exclusive license agreement with Swedish Orphan Biovitrum AB (Sobi) for the development and commercialization of Zynlonta for all hematologic and solid tumor indications outside of the United States, greater China, Singapore and Japan.

The Marketing Authorization Application (MAA) for Zynlonta was validated by the European Medicines Agency (EMA) at the end of October 2021, and orphan drug designation was granted for Zynlonta for the treatment of diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) in Europe. ADC Therapeutics and Sobi intend to make Zynlonta available following a regulatory decision that is expected by the first quarter of 2023.

Under the terms of the agreement, ADC Therapeutics will receive an upfront payment of $55 million, and is eligible to receive $50 million upon regulatory approval of Zynlontain third-line DLBCL by the European Commission and up to approximately $330 million in additional regulatory and sales milestones. ADC Therapeutics will also receive a percentage of royalties ranging from the mid-teens to the mid-twenties based on net sales of Zynlontain Sobi’s territories. Sobi will share a portion of select global Zynlonya clinical trial costs.
