••3. Consistency of the profitability
4. Piotroski F-Score
5. Predictability Rank•

Business Description

Industry: Biotechnology » Biotechnology
Compare:NVO, AMGN, GILD, BIIB, CELG » details
Traded in other countries:DUL.Germany
Alnylam Pharmaceuticals, Inc. is a Delaware corporation that was formed in May 2003. It comprises four entities, Alnylam Pharmaceuticals, Inc. and its three wholly owned subsidiaries: Alnylam U.S., Inc., Alnylam Europe AG and Alnylam Securities Corporation. It is a biopharmaceutical company developing novel therapeutics based on RNA interference, or RNAi. RNAi is a naturally occurring biological pathway within cells for selectively silencing and regulating the expression of specific genes. Since many diseases are caused by the inappropriate activity of specific genes, the ability to silence genes selectively through RNAi could provide a new way to treat a range of human diseases. Drugs that work through RNAi have the potential to become a new class of drugs, like small molecule, protein and antibody drugs. Using its intellectual property and the expertise the company has built in RNAi, it is developing a set of biological and chemical methods and know-how that it applies in a systematic way to develop RNAi therapeutics for a number of diseases. The company is applying its technological expertise to build a pipeline of RNAi therapeutics to address medical needs. Its RNAi therapeutic program, ALN-RSV01, is in Phase II clinical trials for the treatment of human respiratory syncytial virus, or RSV, infection, which is reported to be the main cause of hospitalization in infants in the United States and also occurs in the elderly and in immune compromised adults. The company is also working on a number of programs in pre-clinical development, including ALN-VSP, ALN-PCS, ALN-TTR and ALN-HTT, focused on the treatment of hypercholesterolemia, transthyretin, or TTR, amyloidosis, and Huntington's disease, respectively. In addition, it is working internally and with third-party collaborators to develop capabilities to deliver its RNAi therapeutics directly to specific sites of disease, such as the delivery of ALN-RSV01 to the lungs. It is also working to extend its capabilities to advance the development of RNAi therapeutics that are administered by intravenous, subcutaneous or intramuscular approaches. The company has numerous RNAi therapeutic delivery collaborations and intends to continue to collaborate with government, academic and corporate third parties to evaluate different delivery options, including with respect to Direct RNAi and Systemic RNAi. The company's expertise in RNAi therapeutics and intellectual property estate has allowed it to form alliances with companies, including Isis Pharmaceuticals, Inc., Medtronic, Inc., NovartisPharma AG, Biogen Idec Inc., F. Hoffmann-La Roche Ltd, Takeda Pharmaceutical Company Limited, Kyowa Hakko and Cubist. It has also entered into contracts with government agencies, including the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, or NIAID, a component of the National Institutes of Health, or NIH. It also seeks opportunities to form new ventures in areas outside its core strategic interes
