Agios Pharmaceuticals' founders author Science review on cancer metabolism
Date:5/21/2009

in 1929, that cancer cells utilize sugar differently than normal cells, to a 2008 study published in the journal Nature showing that cancer cells 'switch on' the same highly active metabolizing enzymes as those found in fetal cells to promote rapid growth. This latter finding explains why cancer cells are able to divide and grow better than normal cells.

The vision of Agios is to lead the development and translation of cancer metabolism biology and decades of metabolic biochemistry into novel cancer therapeutics that will make a difference for patients. To date, Agios has put in place a world-class scientific team of more than 40 people, built a fully integrated cell metabolism platform within the largest research laboratory dedicated to cancer metabolism and created an emerging product development pipeline of novel Cancer Metabolism drugs.

"The Agios team, pipeline, platform and business strategy that we have built in a short time is exclusively focused on developing a deep biological understanding of the nexus of cancer and metabolism as the key driver behind where, when and how to cripple and kill a cancer cell," said Michael Su, Ph.D., Agios co-founder and Vice President, Drug Discovery. "This Science review, along with many other recent scientific advancements, continues to highlight the significance of the field and Agios' unique ability and position to lead the therapeutic exploration of cancer metabolism."
