Amicus Therapeutics Enters Collaboration With Biogen Idec for Parkinson's Disease

Biogen Idec to Fund 100% of Discovery, Development, and Commercialization Costs

CRANBURY, N.J., Sept. 10, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Amicus Therapeutics (Nasdaq:FOLD), a biopharmaceutical company at the forefront of therapies for rare and orphan diseases, has entered a collaboration with Biogen Idec (Nasdaq:BIIB) to discover, develop and commercialize novel small molecules for the treatment of Parkinson's disease. The collaboration will build upon preclinical studies at Amicus and independent published research that suggest increasing activity of the lysosomal enzyme glucocerobrosidase (GCase) in the brain may correct alpha-synuclein pathology and other deficits associated with Parkinson's disease.
