MONHEIM, GERMANY: Bayer Animal Health GmbH and NeuroCycle Therapeutics Inc (NCT) have signed a global license agreement to advance innovative allergy treatment options for companion animals.

As part of the license agreement, Bayer will develop and commercialize novel compounds based on knowledge and intellectual property licensed and controlled by NCT.

Pet ownership is growing around the world and with that customers’ requirement for more effective and convenient treatment options. “At Bayer, we are committed to help pet owners improve the health and well-being of their animals. We know that allergies are among the most important health and well-being concerns for pet owners and veterinarians. The license agreement with NCT is a strong signal of our commitment to our customers around the world to address these concerns,” said Dr Sabine Bongaerts, head of development within Bayer Animal Health.

“Today’s agreement underlines our strategy to combine the know-how from creative start-up companies like NCT with opportunities derived from Bayer’s research. It is a major milestone on our way to complementing our portfolio with novel treatment options against allergic diseases for the companion animal sector. Now, we will focus on evolving these options from research and development to market maturity,” added Dr Douglas Hutchens, Bayer Animal Health’s head of drug discovery, external innovation & chief veterinary officer.

“Our goal is to maximize the humanitarian impact of our innovative technologies. This license agreement with Bayer Animal Health aligns with this goal by allowing our technology to be applied beyond our core focus on human health,” said Dr Jed Hubbs, NeuroCycle Therapeutics’ CEO.
