Radiopharmaceutical firm Cytogen announced this month that it is in late-stage negotiations with potential marketing partners for Quadramet, the company’s bone cancer palliative agent. Cytogen is working with former marketing partner Du Pont Pharmaceuticals to expedite the changeover, according to the company. North Billerica, MA-based Du Pont will continue to manufacture Quadramet.

The two companies initiated an interim agreement June 2 in which they determined that Du Pont would identify marketing partner candidates for Cytogen (SCAN Special Report 6/98). The agreement has been extended through the end of this month, pending the final selection of a new partner and the completion of Cytogen’s marketing arrangements with Du Pont. Cytogen has taken over the identification and selection of candidates as the process continues.
