NeuroBo (NASDAQ:NRBO) stock is rising higher on Thursday after the clinical-stage biotechnology company announced a new strategic partnership with Dong-A ST.

NeuroBo has entered into a conditional exclusive license agreement that has it agreeing to develop and commercialize DA-1241 and DA-1726. These are treatments in development for nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH), obesity, as well as type 2 diabetes.

That agreement has NeuroBo taking responsibility for the global development, regulatory, and commercial activities of the treatments. However, it does exclude certain Asian-Pacific areas. This will also see Dong-A ST handle the manufacturing of the medicines.

NeuroBo Is Already Planning Clinical Trials

Gil Price, M.D., president and CEO of NRBO, said the following about the agreement.

Once the transaction has closed, which is contingent upon certain closing conditions, we will be uniquely positioned to initiate a phase 2a study of DA-1241 in NASH in the first half of 2023, with data expected in the second half of 2024. We also intend to initiate a phase 1a safety study of DA-1726 in the first half of 2023, for which data is expected in the second half of 2023.
