 On Aug.21, 2019, Enteris BioPharma, a biotechnology company developing innovative drug products built around its proprietary oral peptide delivery technologies,  announced its entry into a definitive licensing agreement with Cara Therapeutics (NASDAQ:CARA) for Enteris’ Peptelligence® technology in the ongoing development of an oral formulation of Cara’s first-in-class KOR agonist, CR845/difelikefalin (KORSUVA™).  Peptelligence®is Enteris’ proprietary platform for the oral delivery of peptides and BCS class II, III and IV small molecules.

The oral tablet formulation of KORSUVA™ (Oral KORSUVA™) was engineered using Peptelligence®.  Oral KORSUVA™ is currently the subject of three separate Phase 2 clinical trials for pruritis in patients with hepatic impairment due to primary biliary cholangitis (PBC), stage III-V chronic kidney disease (CKD), and atopic dermatitis (AD).  The agreement reported will allow Cara to continue its Oral KORSUVA™ programs into Phase 3 and beyond.

Under the terms of the deal, Enteris granted to Cara Therapeutics a non-exclusive, royalty-bearing license to the Peptelligence® technology to develop, manufacture and commercialize Oral KORSUVA™ worldwide, excluding Japanand South Korea. In exchange, Enteris will receive an upfront payment equal to $8 million, with 50% payable in cash and 50% payable in shares of Cara’s common stock.  Cara is also obligated to pay Enteris milestone payments upon the achievement of certain development, regulatory and commercial milestones and low-single digit royalties based on net sales in the licensed territory. Cara retains the right to buy-out the royalty obligation for a period of two years under prespecified conditions.

This is a watershed moment for Enteris and our Peptelligence® platform, and we greatly welcome the opportunity to deepen our relationship with Cara Therapeutics in the ongoing development of its Oral Korsuva™ pipeline, said Joel Tune, CEO of Enteris BioPharma. The ability of our Peptelligence® platform to enable the oral delivery of peptide therapeutics, such as CR845/difelikefalin, is a potential game-changer for numerous peptide and small molecule-based drugs in development and on the market given the convenience and marketability of an orally administered tablet in comparison to an injection. With Cara now actively evaluating Oral KORSUVA™ in three separate Phase 2 clinical trials for differing pruritis indications, evidence continues to mount suggesting that Peptelligence® not only offers the ability to maximize the performance and patient-acceptance of peptide therapeutics, but that entire franchises could be developed around our technology.
