 6/25/15 - Biosimilars in Oncology Drug Pipeline Update 2015

NEW YORK, June 25, 2015 /PRNewswire/ Biologics play an increasing bigger role in the treatment of cancer not only for their therapeutic effects and ability to improve outcomes, but also as supportive care agents. As patent protection for some of the most widely used biologics in cancer begins to expire, the competition will make a hot entry with biosimilars which will have the potential to increase access and provide lower cost options for cancer care.
There are today 82 companies plus partners developing 173 biosimilar drugs in 420 developmental projects in cancer. In addition, there is 1 suspended drug and the accumulated number of ceased drugs over the last years amount to another 1 drugs. Biosimilars In Oncology Drug Pipeline Update lists all drugs and gives you a progress analysis on each one of them. Identified drugs are linked to 16 different targets. All included targets have been cross-referenced for the presence of mutations associated with human cancer. To date 15 out of the 15 studied drug targets so far have been recorded with somatic mutations. The software application lets you narrow in on these mutations and links out to the mutational analysis for each of the drug targets for detailed information. All drugs targets are further categorized on in the software application by 7 classifications of molecular function and with pathway referrals to BioCarta, KEGG, NCI-Nature and NetPath.

How May Drug Pipeline Update Be of Use?
* Show investors/board/management that you are right on top of drug development progress in your therapeutic area. * Find competitors, collaborations partners, M&A candidates etc. * Jump start competitive drug intelligence operations * Excellent starting point for world wide benchmarking * Compare portfolio and therapy focus with your peers * Speed up pro-active in-/out licensing strategy work * Fast and easy way of tracking drugs using search engines; just one click from inside the application and you may search the World Wide Web and PubMed for any drug. Drug Pipeline Update is delivered to you as a downloadable application, which requires no installation on your computer. Please read more about application features and system requirements below.

Note: You are able to find and sort drugs according to type of indication from drop-down menu in the application.

Targets
Mutations
All targets are cross-referenced with the Catalogue of Somatic Mutations in Cancer (COSMIC). It is designed to store and display somatic mutation information and related details and contains information relating to human cancers. To date 15 out of the 15 studied drug targets so far have been recorded with somatic mutations and the software application lets you narrow in on these mutations and links out to the mutational analysis for each of the drug targets for detailed information.

Biological Structures
The identity of available biological structures on 13 drug targets was retrieved from the RCSB Protein Databank for you to easily review the 227 structures available today among drug targets.

Identified drugs are linked to more than 16 different targets, divided into 7 classifications of molecular function:
- Cytokine activity
-
- Growth factor activity
- Molecular function unknown
- Receptor activity
