미국 SEC에 제출되어 공개된 장문의 계약서를 참고로 첨부해 드립니다. 핵심부분은 삭제되었지만, 신약개발과정을 거쳐 미국 FDA 허가신청까지 진행된 계약서로 실무자용 참고자료라고 생각합니다.
수많은 조항 중에서 미국 FDA 허가신청 과정에서 필요한 data access에 관한 규정은 흔히 보기 어려운 내용입니다. 그대로 인용하면 다음과 같습니다.
4.8 Sharing of Regulatory Filings. Each of the Parties will disclose to the other a draft copy of any Regulatory Filing in the Territory in the original language no less than thirty (30) days prior to filing it with a Governmental Authority. Each Party will consider in good faith any comments made by the other Party with respect to such filings. Each Party shall, no less frequently than quarterly, and more often as reasonably requested by the other Party, provide to the other Party (in such format as reasonably requested) all material preclinical and clinical data arising out of or relating to Dmab in trials thereof in the Territory (and outside the Territory, for Amgen) (or such subset of such data as the Parties may agree). Each of the Parties shall maintain a database which contains all clinical trial data accumulated from all clinical trials of Dmab in the Territory (in a computer readable format reasonably requested by Amgen). Upon the request of either Party, the other Party shall provide a right of reference to any requested Regulatory Filings or Regulatory Approvals in the Territory, and Amgen shall provide the same such right of reference to Collaborator with respect to such Regulatory Filings and Regulatory Approvals outside the Territory, in each case as reasonably necessary for the requesting Party’s development or commercialization of Dmab as permitted hereunder (or, with respect to Amgen, manufacture of Dmab). Notwithstanding the foregoing, Amgen shall not be required to provide to Collaborator nor to allow Collaborator to access (but shall provide a right of reference as set forth in Section 4.15.3 (Amgen Cooperation) to the extent necessary) Amgen’s manufacturing information with respect to Dmab or any sections of any such Regulatory Filing related thereto and neither Party shall have an obligation to provide information relating to any product other than Dmab.
3.10.3 Right of Access. Each Party shall provide the other Party with access to all clinical project plans and clinical data, results and information derived from or relating to all Clinical Trials conducted, and all Regulatory Filings prepared, with respect to Collaboration Compounds and/or Licensed Products (collectively, “Product-Related Data”) in English and at no additional cost or expense. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement, ARQULE (a) may use, and provide to its Third Party licensees and collaborators, such Product-Related Data; provided, that, (i) ARQULE shall only have the right to share such Product-Related Data to its Third Party collaborators and licensees that have granted ARQULE the reciprocal right to share with DS clinical data, results and information, and information derived from or related to Regulatory Filings controlled by such Third Party collaborators and licensees for use with Licensed Products under this Agreement and (ii) ARQULE shall, upon DS’s request, use Commercially Reasonable Efforts to coordinate a global clinical trial targeting both within the Territory and the Asian Territory involving its Third Party collaborators and DS; (b) may use such Product-Related Data for the performance of its obligations and exercise of its rights under this Agreement; and (c) shall have a right of access, a right of reference and a right to use and incorporate all such Product-Related Data in any Regulatory Filings and Drug Approval Applications it makes with respect to Licensed Products. The Parties shall cooperate so that such Product-Related Data is transferred to ARQULE as expeditiously as possible.
신약허가에 필요한 임상시험 데이터를 얻는데 막대한 비용과 시간이 필요하기 때문에 상대방을 적극적으로 지원하여 허가를 받을 수 있도록 한다는 취지입니다. 신약개발의 어려움과 진정한 partnership이 필요한 현실을 반영한 계약조항으로 생각됩니다.
