Johnson & Johnson (JNJ) on Friday said it was acquiring privately-owned Taris Biomedical LLC, which is developing a "novel drug delivery technology for the treatment of bladder diseases including cancer."

Financial terms of the deal weren't disclosed.

JNJ said the proprietary Taris System uses a silicone-based device to allow for the continuous release of medication into the bladder.

Taris will become part of Janssen R&D, and will keep a research presence in the Lexington, Mass. area, JNJ said.

"The team will remain focused on the optimization of drug candidates working together with Janssen R&D scientists to advance and deliver future clinical programs applying the Taris technology," JNJ said.

Mathai Mammen, global head of Janssen R&D, said, "We are eager to build upon the proof-of-concept data that the Taris team has generated and advance clinical development of this drug delivery approach for patients who face a bladder cancer diagnosis, and potentially for other types of cancer in the future."
