Vectura has eight products marketed by its partners and a portfolio of drugs in clinical development, a number of which have been licensed to major pharmaceutical companies. Vectura has disclosed development collaborations and licensed to major pharmaceutical companies. Vectura has disclosed development collaborations and license agreements with several pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies, including Novartis, Sandoz (the generics arm of Novartis), Baxter, GlaxoSmithKline, UCB, Ablynx, Grifols and Tianjin KingYork Group Company Limited.

Vectura seeks to develop certain programmes itself where this will optimise value. Vectura’s formulation and inhalation technologies are available to other pharmaceutical companies on an out-licensing basis where this complements Vectura’s business strategy.
