The price of BIND stock surged in extended-hours trading Thursday after the company announced an extension of the terms of its global collaboration with pharmaceutical giant Pfizer Inc. (PFE) to create Accurins that optimize the therapeutic potential of two molecularly targeted oncology drugs in Pfizer’s pipeline.

The timeline for Pfizer to exercise its option to acquire the exclusive license for the first program continues to be September 2015. BIND and Pfizer agreed to an extension of the timeline for the second program through March 2016.

Both companies mutually agreed to extend the research terms for the second of the two selected compounds in order to ensure it is fully evaluated and well-positioned to enter IND-enabling studies

BIND received an upfront payment of $4.0 million in 2013, a $1.0 million preclinical development milestone in December 2014, and has the potential to receive payments up to $88.5 million upon the achievement of additional specified development and regulatory events. BIND may also receive additional payments up to $110 million for specified commercial events as well as royalties in the low single to high single digit percentages on potential future sales of each Accurin commercialized, if any.

BIND‘s Accurins are polymeric nanoparticles that incorporate a therapeutic payload and are designed to have prolonged circulation within the bloodstream, enable targeting of the diseased tissue or cells, and provide for the controlled and timely release of the therapeutic payload

Shares of BIND surged $0.13 (or +2.41%) to $5.52 in the last trading session

BIND is a clinical-stage nanomedicine platform company developing a pipeline of Accurins, its novel targeted therapeutics designed to increase the concentration and duration of therapeutic payloads at disease sites while reducing exposure to healthy tissue. BIND has demonstrated in preclinical studies that Accurins can improve tumor growth suppression, achieve higher concentrations of the payload in tumors compared to the payload administered in conventional form, and have pharmacokinetics and tolerability differentiated from their therapeutic payloads.
