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. Six registration studies are currently advancing. These programs include three cancer drugs, binimetinib (MEK162), encorafenib (LGX818) and selumetinib (partnered with AstraZeneca).
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.
