Chi­na's Zai Lab spins 2 more li­cens­ing deals, in­clud­ing a sud­den dive in­to neu­ro­science

Chi­na can­cer spe­cial­ist Zai Lab has made its name in-li­cens­ing West­ern drugs and us­ing its deep knowl­edge of the East Asian mar­ket to churn out re­sults. The biotech has now signed two more li­cens­ing deals for a trio of drugs, in­clud­ing a very sud­den jump in­to the neu­ro­science space.

First, Zai Lab inked a deal Tues­day with Karuna Ther­a­peu­tics for rights in main­land Chi­na, Hong Kong, Macau and Tai­wan to KarXT, an in­ves­ti­ga­tion­al M1/M4-pre­fer­ring mus­carinic ag­o­nist be­ing test­ed to treat a va­ri­ety of psy­chi­atric con­di­tions.
