GSK’s Pharmaceutical Medicines business:
Our pharmaceutical medicines business has a broad portfolio of innovative and established medicines. Currently, we are focusing on developing new medicines in Oncology, Immuno-Inflammation, Respiratory, and HIV/Infectious Diseases. The rebuilding of our Pharmaceuticals pipeline continues with most of our new medicines in development targeting modulation of the immune system. Major progress has been made in our immuno-oncology pipeline with assets now in clinical development, reflecting organic progression, our recent acquisition of Tesaro, Inc., and our new global strategic alliance with Merck KGaA, also known as EMD Serono in the U.S.
GSK Oncology R&D is focused on building industry-leading portfolios in three cutting-edge areas of science:
Acquisition of Tesaro, Inc.
GSK’s acquisition of Tesaro, Inc. an oncology-focused company based in Waltham, Massachusetts, significantly strengthens our pharmaceuticals business through accelerating of GSK’s pipeline and commercial capability in oncology. TESARO has a major marketed oncology product, Zejula (niraparib), an oral poly ADP ribose polymerase (PARP) inhibitor currently approved in the US and Europe as a treatment for adult patients with recurrent ovarian cancer. PARP inhibitors are transforming the treatment of ovarian cancer, notably demonstrating marked clinical benefit in patients with or without germline mutations in a BRCA gene (gBRCA).GSK also believes that PARP inhibitors offer significant opportunities for use in the treatment of multiple cancer types, therefore Zejula is also being investigated for use as a possible treatment in lung, breast, and prostate cancer, both as a monotherapy and in combination with other medicines, including with TESARO’s own anti-PD-1 antibody (dostarlimab, formerly known as TSR-042). In addition to Zejula and dostarlimab, TESARO has several other oncology assets in its pipeline, including antibodies directed against TIM-3 and LAG-3.
