Business Description

Compare:NVO, AMGN, GILD, BIIB, CELG » details
Traded in other countries:LX31.Germany,
Lexicon Pharmaceuticals Inc was incorporated in Delaware on July 7, 1995. The Company operates as a biopharmaceutical company engaged in discovery and development of breakthrough treatments for human disease. It has used its proprietary gene knockout technology and an integrated platform of advanced medical technologies to systematically study the physiological and behavioral functions of almost 5,000 genes in mice and assessed the utility of the proteins encoded by the corresponding human genes as potential drug targets. It has identified and validated in living animals, or in vivo, more than 100 targets with promising profiles for drug discovery. The Company has also advanced small molecule compounds from a number of additional drug programs into various stages of preclinical development and research and believe that its systematic, target biology-driven approach to drug discovery will enable it to continue to expand its clinical pipeline. It faces significant competition in each of the aspects of its business from other pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies. The development, manufacture and sale of any drug or biologic products developed by the Company or its collaborators will be subject to extensive regulation by United States and foreign governmental authorities, including federal, state and local authorities.
