Bristol-Myers Squibb announced it would pay up to $192 million in a deal with Isis Pharmaceuticals to develop and market a new line of drugs for the prevention and treatment of cardiovascular disease.

Under the terms of the deal, Bristol-Myers Squibb will pay Isis a $15 million licensing fee for access to Isis’ PCSK9 research program, contribute at least $9 million to research funding over three years, and pay up to $168 million in fees for the initial drug development. Bristol-Myers Squibb will also pay Isis royalties on drug sales. While Bristol-Myers Squibb will fund the collaboration, both companies will be responsible for preclinical development.
