Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement


Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, or NIAID, has exercised its first two options pursuant to its September 30, 2011 agreement with Enanta. Under these options, NIAID has agreed to provide an additional $9.2 million in funding to Enanta for preclinical and early clinical development of Enanta's Bicyclolide antibiotic, EDP-788, effectively extending the term of the agreement to February 2015.

Enanta has created Bicyclolides with a focus on developing an intravenous and oral treatment for hospital-acquired and community-acquired infections of MRSA (methicillin-resistant Staphylococus aureus). NIAID is funding the development of EDP-788 as a medical, biodefense countermeasure against multiple bacteria such as anthrax, plague and tularemia. NIAID's exercise of these two options will fund additional preclinical work and Phase 1 clinical research with EDP-788.
