Business Description

Industry: Biotechnology » Biotechnology
Compare:NVO, AMGN, GILD, BIIB, CELG » details
Traded in other countries:DNR.Germany
Dendreon Corp, a Delaware corporation, is a biotechnology company focused on the discovery, development and commercialization of novel therapeutics that improve cancer treatment options for patients. Its product portfolio includes active cellular immunotherapy and small molecule product candidates to treat a range of cancers. PROVENGE (sipuleucel-T), is its first commercialized product licensed by the United States Food and Drug Administration, and is a first in class autologous cellular immunotherapy for the treatment of asymptomatic or minimally symptomatic, metastatic, castrate-resistant (hormone-refractory) prostate cancer. Prostate cancer is the most common non-skin cancer among men in the United States, with over one million men currently diagnosed with the disease, and the second cause of cancer deaths in men in the United States. The Company owns worldwide rights for PROVENGE. The other potential product candidates are under development or are evaluating include investigational cellular immunotherapies targeted towards HER2/neu for the treatment of patients with bladder, breast, ovarian and other solid tumors, carbonic anhydrase 9 ('CA9'), an antigen highly expressed in renal cell carcinoma; and carcinoembryonic antigen ("CEA"), an antigen expressed in colorectal and other cancers. In addition, the Company is investigating an orally-available small molecule treatment targeting TRPM8 that could be applicable to multiple types of cancer in advanced cancer patients. The Company currently depends on specialized vendor relationships that are not readily replaceable for some of the components for its active immunotherapy candidates. Products such as chemotherapeutics, androgen metabolism or androgen receptor antagonists, endothelin A receptor antagonists, antisense compounds, angiogenesis inhibitors and gene therapies for cancer are also under development by a number of companies and could potentially compete with PROVENGE and its other product candidates. The Company's competitors include major pharmaceutical companies. The Company is subject to a variety of federal, state and local regulations relating to the use, handling, storage and disposal of hazardous materials, including chemicals and radioactive and biological materials. The Company is also subject to regulation by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration ('OSHA'), and the Environmental Protection Agency ('EPA'), and to regulation under the Toxic Substances Control Act.
