Ticker:ONXX
Company Name: ONYX Pharmaceuticals, Inc.

Business Overview from 10-K filing for ONYX Pharmaceuticals, Inc.:

We are a biopharmaceutical company dedicated to developing innovative therapies that target the molecular mechanisms that cause cancer. With our collaborators, we are developing small molecule, orally available drugs with the goal of changing the way cancer is treated.TM A common feature of cancer cells is the excessive activation of signaling pathways that cause abnormal cell proliferation. In addition, tumors require oxygen and nutrients from newly formed blood vessels to support their growth. The formation of these new blood vessels is a process called angiogenesis. We are applying our expertise to develop oral anticancer therapies designed to prevent cancer cell proliferation and angiogenesis by inhibiting proteins that signal or support tumor growth. By exploiting the genetic differences between cancer cells and normal cells, we aim to create novel anticancer agents that minimize damage to healthy tissue.  g
