Ticker:KOSN
Company Name: Kosan Biosciences Incorporated

Business Overview from 10-K filing for Kosan Biosciences Incorporated:

We are a biotechnology company developing drug candidates from an important class of natural product compounds known as polyketides. Polyketides are naturally made in very small amounts in certain microorganisms and are difficult to make or modify chemically. Using our expertise and proprietary technologies, we are able to create, modify and produce polyketides in a variety of ways. Because polyketides have been a rich source of marketed drugs, creating novel polyketides and having the capability to more cost-effectively produce polyketides should provide us with a pipeline of potential drug candidates that address existing or potential large markets. We have two first-in-class, polyketide-derived agents in Phase II and Phase Ib clinical trials for the treatment of cancer: KOS-862 (Epothilone D) and 17-AAG, a geldanamycin analog and Hsp90 inhibitor.  g
