Array BioPharma Inc. is a biopharmaceutical company focused on the discovery, development and commercialization of targeted small molecule drugs to treat patients afflicted with cancer. Seven Phase 3 or pivotal studies are already in progress, or are planned to begin this year. These programs include the wholly-owned hematology drug, filanesib (ARRY-520) for multiple myeloma and two partnered cancer drugs, selumetinib (AstraZeneca) and binimetinib (MEK162 / Novartis).
We are building a fully integrated, commercial-stage biopharmaceutical company that discovers, develops and markets safe and effective small molecule drugs to treat patients afflicted with cancer. We intend to accomplish this through the following strategies:
- Invent targeted small molecule drugs that are either first-in-class or second generation drugs that have little or no competition, or demonstrate a competitive advantage over drugs currently on the market or in clinical development.
- Selectively develop and commercialize our drugs to maximize their overall value. As our first drug nears approval, we plan to build a U.S.-based, therapeutically focused sales force to commercialize or co-promote drugs we wholly own or for which we retain development rights in certain geographic areas.
- Implement a partnering strategy in which we retain U.S. commercial and/or co-promotion rights for drugs that can be distributed through a therapeutically specialized sales force and partner select early-stage programs for continued research and development to receive research funding plus significant milestone payments and royalties.
