Teva will continue to use Codexis’ biocatalysis technology for key processing steps in the production of four generic drugs under a revised agreement announced last week.

The firms have worked on the project since January last year with Codexis using its proprietary MolecularBreeding technology to develop custom “super enzymes​” to accelerate Teva’s production processes.

While further details of deal, or the drugs being produced, were not disclosed Codexis’ CEO, Alan Shaw, said the: "Expansion of our relationship with Teva from one to four products in under a year demonstrates the value of Codexis technology in today's competitive pharmaceuticals market​."

Teva and Codexis’ first research collaboration was signed in late 2004, with the Israeli generics giant licensing exclusive rights to commercialise the process in return for providing research funding.
