If the option is exercised by Neurocrine Biosciences, Idorsia will receive an upfront payment of $45 million. Idorsia may also receive up to $365 million in additional development and regulatory milestone payments.

Also, Neurocrine Biosciences will provide an incremental $7 million in funding to Idorsia as part of the research collaboration.
