Paris, May 11, 2011 - BioAlliance Pharma SA (Euronext Paris -BIO), a company dedicated to specialty and orphan pharma products in oncology and supportive care, today announced that it has entered into an exclusive licensing agreement with Sosei Co.

BioAlliance Pharma will receive from Sosei up to $18.5 million of which $3 million up-front payment will be received at the time of signing the agreement.

We are delighted to be able to cooperate with Sosei and shall continue our efforts to make BioAlliance products portfolio available worldwide in due course through strategic partnerships like Sosei", said Dominique Costantini, CEO of BioAlliance Pharma.
