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.
