Micromet: Coping with the Fallout When a Partner is Acquired

Executive Summary

When Micromet's development partner for lead anti-carcinoma antibody MT201 was bought by Cell Therapeutics in mid-2003, the German biotech was forced to restructure significantly in order to continue funding the program through Phase II trials alone. Micromet isn't the only biotech to see a partnering deal scuppered by M&A. But it and others have shown that these days, a rejected program doesn't mean a dead program. Micromet has since signed a manufacturing partner and its plans to take the program through Phase II alone remain on track.
