About The Veru (NASDAQ:VERU): Veru is an oncology biopharmaceutical company with a focus on developing novel medicines for the management of prostate cancer and breast cancer.Veru is an oncology biopharmaceutical company with a focus on developing novel medicines for the management of prostate cancer and breast cancers. Our strategy is primarily to focus on the clinical development and commercialization of oncology drugs for the management of two of the most prevalent cancers globally – prostate cancer and breast cancer.
Prostate cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in men with estimated 191,930 new cases and 33,330 deaths expected for 2020 in the U.S. One in nine men will develop prostate cancer in their lifetime. Prostate cancer has new challenges as it develops resistance to current drugs and spreads throughout the body and as the patient suffers from the long-term side effects of prostate cancer treatments like hot flashes, bone loss and fractures, loss of libido, erectile dysfunction, and loss of muscle strength and frailty.
Breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in women with estimated 276,480 new cases and 42,170 deaths expected for 2020 in the U.S. One in eight women will develop invasive breast cancer in their lifetime. There are many different types of breast cancer with diverse clinical and molecular characteristics. The most common type is hormone receptor positive where estrogen is one of the main drivers of breast cancer proliferation, tumor progression, and metastasis. Consequently, treatments that target the ER are the mainstay of breast cancer therapy, but unfortunately almost all women will eventually develop resistance to endocrine therapies and alternative treatment approaches will be required including IV chemotherapy. Another form of breast cancer that occurs in 15% of all breast cancers is called triple negative breast cancer. Triple negative breast cancer does not have ER or PR and does not make HER2. As a consequence, it is an endocrine resistant, aggressive cancer that grows and spreads faster than ER+ and/or HER2+ breast cancers. Triple negative breast cancer also develops resistance to currently used chemotherapy drugs like taxanes, and as such, treatment options for TNBC are limited.
