Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.


On July 10, 2020, we entered into an agreement with Patheon API Services, Inc. (“Patheon”) for the manufacture and supply of cGMP material to support our planned Phase II clinical trial for our product candidate LP-300.


In addition to producing LP-300 API (active pharmaceutical ingredient) under cGMP (current Good Manufacturing Practices) conditions, Patheon will transfer previously validated manufacturing processes and analytical methods for LP-300 and will produce non-GMP material that can be used to support non-clinical studies for LP-300. The agreement provides for payments in stages as specified process and manufacturing milestones are achieved.


Patheon, a part of Thermo Fisher Scientific, has previously developed and/or manufactured more than 700 pharmaceuticals for biopharma clients and has more than 55 locations around the world, providing access to a fully integrated global network of facilities.







Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
