Business Description

Industry: Biotechnology » Biotechnology
Compare:NVO, AMGN, GILD, BIIB, CELG » details
Traded in other countries:SGT.Germany
Seattle Genetics Inc was incorporated on July 15, 1997. It is a biotechnology company focused on the development and commercialization of monoclonal antibody-based therapies for cancer. In August 2011, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, or FDA, granted accelerated approval of ADCETRIS, or brentuximab vedotin, in two indications; the treatment of patients with Hodgkin lymphoma after failure of autologous stem cell transplant, or ASCT, or after failure of at least two prior multi-agent chemotherapy regimens in patients who are not ASCT candidates, and the treatment of patients with systemic anaplastic large cell lymphoma, or sALCL, after failure of at least one prior multi-agent chemotherapy regimen. ADCETRIS is an antibody-drug conjugate, or ADC, comprising an anti-CD30 monoclonal antibody attached by a protease-cleavable linker to a microtubule disrupting agent, monomethyl auristatin E (MMAE), utilizing the Companys proprietary technology. The Company collaborated with Takeda Pharmaceutical Company Limited, or Takeda, to develop and commercialize ADCETRIS. The Company has a broad development strategy for ADCETRIS evaluating its potential application in earlier lines of therapy in patients with Hodgkin lymphoma and sALCL and other CD30-positive malignancies. In addition, it has five clinical-stage ADC programs, which consist of SGN-CD19A, SGN-CD33A, SGN-LIV1A, ASG-22ME, and ASG-15ME. Many third parties compete with the Company in developing various approaches to cancer and autoimmune disease therapy. They include pharmaceutical companies, biotechnology companies, academic institutions and other research organizations. The Company operates under the regulations of FDA and comparable regulatory agencies in state and local jurisdictions and in foreign countries.
