The mission of Human Genome Sciences is to discover, develop, manufacture and market innovative drugs that serve patients with unmet medical needs, with a primary focus on protein and antibody drugs. Clinical Development Pipeline
The HGS clinical development pipeline includes drugs to treat hepatitis C, lupus, anthrax disease, cancer, rheumatoid arthritis and HIV/AIDS. The Company’s primary focus is rapid progress toward the commercialization of our two lead products, Albuferon for hepatitis C, and LymphoStat-B for lupus. We have entered into collaboration agreements with two of the world’s leading pharmaceutical companies for the co-development and co-commercialization of these products. Our Albuferon collaborator is Novartis. Our LymphoStat-B collaborator is GlaxoSmithKline. We expect both Albuferon and LymphoStat-B to advance to Phase 3 clinical trials in 2006.
