Latest From Plexxikon Inc.
Daiichi Sankyo says it is “committed to a major transformation in oncology” as it prioritizes and pursues projects in this field under a new team leader, who chose to highlight unique antibody-drug conjugate technology and the acute myeloid leukemia franchise at a recent R&D Day in Tokyo.
Daiichi Sankyo is to continue with a multinational Phase III trial for its novel candidate for tenosynovial giant cell tumor despite cases of liver toxicity, but has stopped enrolment short of target and modified the protocol.
"I love it when a plan comes together," Hannibal Smith of TV show The A-Team used to say, a catchphrase which Daiichi Sankyo will be hoping is appropriate in around five years' time as it looks back on the results of its new mid-term strategy.
Genentech Inc.'s and Exelixis Inc.'s Cotellic (cobimetinib), a MEK inhibitor, made it across the FDA's finish line on Nov. 10, but now the firms must confront the ultimate test of the drug's success – selling it, which is increasingly becoming more difficult in a climate where payers are becoming more and more demanding about using alternative pricing arrangements.
