SEATTLE, Nov. 3, 2010 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Dendreon Corporation (Nasdaq: DNDN) today reported results for the quarter ended September 30, 2010.

“We’re pleased with the progress we have made in the first six months of the launch of PROVENGE,” said Mitchell H.

  • Dendreon’s revenue guidance for full year 2010 is approximately $46-47 million and for 2011 is expected to be in the range of $350-400 million, with approximately half of that expected to be generated in Q4, based on a standard FDA review period and approval of our new manufacturing facilities.
