OncoMed Pharmaceuticals and Bayer Schering Pharma Announce Strategic Alliance to Develop Anti-Cancer Stem Cell Therapeutics
Date:6/17/2010

eutics with one of the leading pharmaceutical companies in the world.  Bayer shares our vision for the potential of anti-cancer stem cell therapeutics, and we look forward to working closely with them," said Paul J. Hastings, President and CEO of OncoMed.  "OncoMed has established a rich pipeline of product candidates targeting a number of critical cancer stem cell pathways.  Through this collaboration, we will gain significant additional funding to support the discovery and development of therapeutics targeting the Wnt pathway, as we continue, with our already strong cash position and our other sources of collaborative revenue, to fully finance and advance all of our programs for years to come."

About Cancer Stem Cells and the Wnt Signaling Pathway

Cancer stem cells, a small, resilient subset of cells found in tumors, have the capacity to self-renew and differentiate, leading to tumor initiation and driving tumor growth, recurrence and metastasis.  Also referred to as "tumor-initiating cells", these cells were first discovered by OncoMed's scientific founders in breast cancer and have subsequently been identified in many other types of solid tumor cancers, including cancer of head and neck, lung, prostate, pancreas, and glioblastoma.  Cancer stem cells appear to be preferentially resistant to both standard chemotherapy and radiotherapy.  OncoMed's strategy is to improve cancer treatment by specifically targeting the key biologic pathways which are thought to be critical to the activity and survival of cancer stem cells.  OncoMed's antibody therapeutics target cancer stem cell proteins and have the potential to be developed against a range of solid tumor types.  

The Wnt signaling pathway is one of several identified by OncoMed as an important therapeutic target in halting cancer stem cell activ
