Amgen Incorporated Company Profile

19:49 EST 17th November 2017 | BioPortfolio

Over the past quarter century, Amgen has pioneered the methods by which human proteins that play a role in disease processes are identified, isolated, produced in quantity and used as therapeutics. Today, Amgenhas research programs in inflammation, metabolic disorders and osteoporosis, neurology, oncology and hematology. The company has R&D facilities in Thousand Oaks, CA; San Francisco, CA; Cambridge, MA; Cambridge, UK; Regensburg, Germany; and Seattle, WA.

With expertise in proteins, small molecules, antibodies, peptibodies, and nucleic acids, Amgen’s scientists can pursue the study of disease, choose the best target for a disease and then use the modality most likely to have an effect on that target. This approach positions Amgen as one of the only companies with capabilities across a range of modalities.

Mastering the tools of therapeutic development, as they emerge, is crucial to Amgen’s ongoing success. Accordingly, the company has invested at least 20 percent of product sales in research and development each year since 1994—a total of approximately $2.0 billion in 2004.
