Breaking News: Q BioMed Inc Announces Acquisition of Cancer Pain Drug Metastron™ from GE Healthcare

Strategic Acquisition Gives Company Ownership of Brand Name Drug and Related Market Authorizations in 22 Countries in Which Metastron™ is Already Registered and Approved for Sale 

Q BioMed Inc. (OTCQB: QBIO), a biotechnology acceleration company, is pleased to announce that it has entered into agreement to acquire the metastatic skeletal cancer palliation drug, Metastron™, from GE Healthcare.

The agreement gives Q BioMed ownership of the brand, trademarks and market authorizations in 22 countries. In addition, all historical and current sales and distribution data related to those market authorisations will be assigned or transferred to Q BioMed to allow for as seamless a transition as possible in all markets.

Q BioMed CEO Denis Corin said of the deal, “This is a major deal for Q BioMed. Strategically, it affirms our belief in this drug as an effective and underutilized non-opioid therapy for the treatment of debilitating pain associated with skeletal cancer metastases. Importantly, as we enter this market, we will now have access to all information related to Metastron in 22 countries in which the drug is already approved for sale.” Mr. Corin continued, “This gives us a tremendous springboard to accelerate our revenue potential and establishes a formidable barrier to entry as we grow this market. With regards to the market, it is important to note that our focus is not on the short-term horizon, but rather on the long-term strategic initiative as we look 2 and 5 years down the road at expanding the therapeutic scope for the drug.”  

The acquisition agreement with GE Healthcare covers the purchase of the radiopharmaceutical drug Metastron™ and all related intellectual property (IP) including, but not limited to the brand, sales and distribution data, patent, trademark and market authorizations for Metastron in 22 countries in exchange for an undisclosed upfront payment, one milestone payment based on sales and a single digit royalty for 15 years. The first commercial sale of Metastron is expected to occur after the successful transfer or assignment of all IP, material sales and distribution data, technical transfer and establishment of manufacturing capabilities to be made by Q BioMed under the appropriate regulatory filings required by the jurisdictions in which Metastron is sold.  The complete transfer and establishment of approved manufacturing facilities will take several months with the relevant international health authorities.

Q BioMed looks forward to updating shareholders and all stakeholders as we advance through the transaction and more importantly, we look forward to providing this drug to the thousands of patients around the world who may depend on it well into the future.
