Note 15 Strategic Alliances

We plan to develop a portfolio of product candidates through a combination of internal development and external partnerships. In December 2010, we entered into a definitive agreement granting TESARO exclusive rights to the development, manufacture, commercialization and distribution of rolapitant and a related compound. Refer to Note 3. We have also completed strategic deals with the UT Southwestern, the President and Fellows of Harvard College, and Academia Sinica, among others. In connection with these license agreements, upon the achievement of certain milestones we are obligated to make certain payments and have royalty obligations upon sales of products developed under the license agreements. At this time, we are unable to estimate the timing and amounts of payments as the obligations are based on future development of the licensed products.
