The following table shows our most advanced programs in the areas of cancer and inflammatory diseases and their stage in the drug development process.
Our primary research efforts are centered on cancer and inflammatory disease. We believe there is significant synergy between these two research areas, and developing drugs in one of the areas may lead to therapies in the other area. Our research focuses on biologic functions, or pathways, that have been identified as important in the treatment of human disease based on human clinical, genetic or preclinical data. Within these pathways, we seek to create first-in-class drugs regulating important therapeutic targets to treat patients with serious or life-threatening conditions, primarily in cancer, inflammatory disease as well as in other important disease areas. In addition, we identify opportunities to improve upon existing therapies or drugs in clinical development by creating clinical candidates with superior, or best-in-class, drug characteristics, including efficacy, tolerability or dosing, to provide safer, more effective drugs.
