Incyte Corp. (INCY)

Company Description

Incyte Corporation (Wilmington, Delaware) is a biopharmaceutical company that is focused on developing novel small molecule therapies for the treatments of cancers and inflammatory diseases. The company obtained approval in the U.S. for Jakafi in late 2011, which is a first-in class compound for myeloproliferative disorders that inhibits the intraceullar Janus kinases (Jak) signaling pathway; the ex-U.S. ruxolitinib rights have been licensed to Novartis in a deal potentially valued at up to $1 billion. INCY’s second key pipeline product is INCB28050, which is a second-generation oral Jak inhibitor in development for autoimmune disorders such as rheumatoid arthritis. The company has licensed global rights to INCB28050 to Lilly, and plans to co-develop the agent in rheumatoid arthritis. Behind ruxolitinib and INCB28050, INCY has several earlierstage Phase I/II oncology assets, which have different mechanisms of action, and a fully owned second generation Jakafi.
