Ionis Pharmaceuticals Inc. (IONS) said Monday its partner Roche (RHHBY) enrolled the first patient in a pivotal study of RG6042 for Huntington's disease.

With the initiation of the study, Ionis said it earned a $35 million milestone payment.

Roche and Ionis are collaborating to develop antisense drugs to treat Huntington's disease. In total, Ionis has generated $135 million in up-front, milestone and license payments and is eligible to receive additional milestone payments as RG6042 progresses in development, as well as royalties.

Huntington's disease is a hereditary neurodegenerative disorder for which there is currently no approved disease-modifying treatment, Ionis said.
