Exelixis, Inc. is a biopharmaceutical company committed to developing small molecule therapies for the treatment of cancer. Exelixis is focusing its development and commercialization efforts primarily on cabozantinib, its wholly owned inhibitor of multiple receptor tyrosine kinases. Positive results were recently announced for a phase 3 pivotal trial of cabozantinib in patients with advanced renal cell carcinoma who received at least one prior VEGF receptor tyrosine kinase inhibitor, and Exelixis expects to complete regulatory filings in the U.S. and European Union in late 2015 and early 2016, respectively. Another Exelixis-discovered compound, COTELLIC™, a selective inhibitor of MEK, received its first regulatory approvals in Switzerland and the United States, and is being evaluated by Roche and Genentech (a member of the Roche Group) in a broad development program under a collaboration with Exelixis.
