TESARO is an oncology-focused biopharmaceutical company dedicated to improving the lives of cancer patients. We were founded in March 2010 by former executives of MGI PHARMA, Inc., an oncology and acute-care focused biopharmaceutical company. We intend to continue to leverage the experience and competencies of our senior management team to identify, acquire, develop and commercialize cancer therapeutics and oncology supportive care products that are safer and more effective than existing treatments. Upon successful development and regulatory approval of any of our product candidates we intend to make them available to cancer patients in North America, Europe and China through our own commercialization efforts and to establish a network of licensees and distributors in other geographic areas.
Our product portfolio currently consists of three oncology-related product candidates:
- Rolapitant, a potent and long-acting neurokinin-1, or NK-1, receptor antagonist currently in Phase 3 clinical trials for the prevention of chemotherapy induced nausea and vomiting, or CINV;
- Niraparib, formerly known as MK-4827, is an orally active and potent poly (ADP-ribose) polymerase, or PARP, inhibitor that has undergone a Phase 1 clinical trial in cancer patients as a monotherapy and is currently under evaluation by Merck & Co., Inc., or Merck, for use in combination with temozolomide for the treatment of solid tumors. We intend to evaluate niraparib for the treatment of patients with solid tumors; and
- TSR-011, an orally available anaplastic lymphoma kinase, or ALK, inhibitor (targeted anti-cancer agent) currently in preclinical development. We plan to test TSR-011 in clinical trials as a treatment for non-small cell lung cancer, or NSCLC, and potentially other cancer indications.
