Human Genome Sciences, Inc. (NASDAQ: HGSI) and Novozymes Biopharma, a part of Novozymes (NASDAQ: OMX), today announced that they have amended an existing license agreement to allow both companies to expand application of their proprietary albumin fusion technology.

Under the amended agreement, HGS and Novozymes each has the opportunity to exclusively license and/or sublicense a number of albumin fusion proteins in exchange for royalties and other consideration. No existing HGS or Novozymes products or product rights, including rights licensed to other companies, are affected by these amendments. Financial or other terms of the agreement were not disclosed.

“Genetic fusion of therapeutic proteins to albumin can improve the pharmacology of the proteins, resulting in important benefits to patients,” said Barry A. Labinger, Executive Vice President and Chief Commercial Officer, HGS. “For example, with certain therapeutic proteins, albumin fusion may make it possible to dose less frequently and reduce side effects associated with injections. We are pleased to work with Novozymes to broaden the application of albumin fusion technology to new classes of proteins and peptides.”

Thomas Videbæk, Executive Vice President, Novozymes, said, “We are delighted to expand this license agreement with HGS. We license both the fusion protein and the yeast expression systems, which have been optimised for producing albumin fusion proteins as the solution that provides an efficacious half-life in patients. Our strength lies in the fact that we focus on solutions and that is why Novozymes is an ideal partner for the pharmaceutical industry. This enables Novozymes to continue to further develop albufuse®, our proprietary albumin fusion technology, and advance our existing and new partnerships.”

HGS Safe Harbor Statement
This announcement contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. The forward-looking statements are based on Human Genome Sciences’ current intent, belief and expectations. These statements are not guarantees of future performance and are subject to certain risks and uncertainties that are difficult to predict. Actual results may differ materially from these forward-looking statements because of the Company’s unproven business model, its dependence on new technologies, the uncertainty and timing of clinical trials, the Company’s ability to develop and commercialize products, its dependence on collaborators for services and revenue, its substantial indebtedness and lease obligations, its changing requirements and costs associated with facilities, intense competition, the uncertainty of patent and intellectual property protection, the Company’s dependence on key management and key suppliers, the uncertainty of regulation of products, the impact of future alliances or transactions and other risks described in the Company’s filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission. In addition, while the Company has begun shipment of ABthrax to the U.S. Strategic National Stockpile, the Company will continue to face risks related to acceptance of future shipments and FDA’s approval of the Company’s Biologics License Application for ABthrax, if and when it is submitted. If the Company is unable to meet requirements associated with the ABthrax contract, future revenues from the sale of ABthrax to the U.S. Government will not occur.
