Therapeutic Areas

We target diseases that are both highly prevalent in Asia and orphan indications in the United States and Europe.

Breast Cancer

Breast Cancer

The prevalence of breast cancer in Asia was approximately 2.3 million patients in 2012, while the prevalence in the United States was approximately 1 million, of which approximately 5% was metastatic in both cases [1].

Metastatic breast cancer has a five-year survival rate of 26% [2]. Approximately 20% of these patients have tumours with HER2 amplification and will typically receive the anti-HER2 monoclonal antibody therapies Herceptin and pertuzumab in first-line treatment and then ado-trastuzumab emtansine in second-line treatment [3]. In third-line treatment, patients receive the HER1/HER2 small molecule inhibitor lapatinib plus capecitabine.
