AVEO Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (the “Company” or “AVEO”) is a
biopharmaceutical company dedicated to advancing a broad portfolio of
targeted medicines for oncology and other areas of unmet medical need.
The Company’s strategy is to retain North American rights to its
oncology portfolio while securing partners in development and
commercialization outside of North America. The Company is seeking to
develop and commercialize its lead candidate tivozanib in North
America as a treatment for advanced or metastatic renal cell carcinoma
(“RCC”). The Company has outlicensed tivozanib (FOTIVDA®) for
oncological indications in Europe and other territories outside of North
America. Tivozanib is approved in the European Union, as well
as Norway and Iceland, for the first-line treatment of adult patients
with RCC and for adult patients who are vascular endothelial growth
factor receptor and mTOR pathway inhibitor-naïve following disease
progression after one prior treatment with cytokine therapy for RCC. The
Company has entered into partnerships for the development and
commercialization of AV-203 (CAN017) and ficlatuzumab, both clinical
stage assets in oncology. The Company is currently seeking a partner to
develop the AV-353 platform, a preclinical asset, worldwide for the
potential treatment of pulmonary arterial hypertension and oncology. In
addition, a new formulation of tivozanib is being explored in ocular
conditions. The Company has recently regained the rights to its AV-380
program for the potential treatment of cachexia and is considering a
variety of options to advance the program’s development.
