Sol-Gel Technologies Announces Collaborative Agreement With Perrigo

Sol-Gel Technologies Ltd. recently announced it has entered into a collaborative agreement with Perrigo Israel, an affiliate of Perrigo Company plc, for the development, manufacturing, and commercialization of a generic product candidate.

Under the terms of the agreement, Perrigo will conduct the regulatory, scientific, clinical, and technical activities necessary to develop the generic product candidate and seek regulatory approval with the US FDA. If approved by the FDA, Perrigo has agreed to commercialize the generic product candidate in the US.
