Dimerix will also receive royalty payments on net product sales on the successful marketing of DMX-200.

The parties will also form a joint steering committee to oversee the development and commercialisation activities of DMX-200 for FSGS treatment in the territories. 

Advanz holds the right to negotiate a licence for the development and commercialisation of DMX-200 for further indications in its licensed territories.

Advanz CEO Steffen Wagner said: “We are excited to announce this partnership with Dimerix, which is fully in line with our strategy to be a partner of choice for the commercialisation of specialty, hospital and rare disease medicines in Europe, Canada and Australia. 

“We are committed to bring innovative rare disease medicines to market, which serve a high unmet patient need.”

In June 2023, the company entered into a partnership with Veeva Systems to establish a combined digital-first commercial foundation in Europe.
