About Curis Inc.
Curis, Inc., a drug discovery and development company, focuses on the research and development of cancer therapeutics.
Product Development Programs
The company is developing drug candidates designed to treat cancer.
Hedgehog Pathway Inhibitor Program
The Hedgehog pathway is normally active during embryonic development and regulates tissue and organ formation by directly promoting cell division in specific cell types, and by activating other secondary signaling pathways that control the synthesis of growth factors and angiogenic (blood vessel-forming) factors. The companys Hedgehog pathway inhibitor technologies are being developed in various cancer indications under a collaboration agreement with Genentech, Inc., a wholly-owned member of the Roche Group.
The primary drug candidate being developed under this program is GDC-0449, an orally-administered small molecule Hedgehog pathway inhibitor. Genentech and Roche are responsible for the clinical development and commercialization of GDC-0449 and are is conducting three clinical trials of GDC-0449, including a pivotal phase II trial in advanced basal cell carcinoma that was initiated in 2009. Genentech is also conducting phase II clinical trials of GDC-0449 in colorectal and advanced ovarian cancer.
In addition to the ongoing clinical trials that Genentech and Roche are conducting, Genentech and the National Cancer Institute (NCI), entered into a collaborative relationship that allows the NCI to study GDC-0449 in additional potential cancer indications. Under this arrangement with NCI, third-party investigators began enrolling patients in a phase I clinical trial that is designed to evaluate dose and safety of GDC-0449 in young patients with medulloblastoma and a phase II trial to test the molecule in adult medulloblastoma patients.
Proprietary Targeted Cancer Programs
CUDC-101: CUDC-101 is the compound selected as a drug candidate from its targeted cancer programs. CUDC-101 is designed as a multi-target inhibitor of HDAC, EGFR, and Her2 and is the subject of a phase I clinical trial. In 2009, the company licensed its single-agent, single-target inhibitor drug candidate, Debio 0932, an Hsp90 inhibitor to Debiopharm.
In preclinical studies, CUDC-101 demonstrated the potential to inhibit all three molecular targets resulting in the potent killing of a range of cancer cell lines that are representative of various human cancer types, many of which have demonstrated resistance to various approved targeted agents. In 2008, the company initiated a phase I trial of CUDC-101 in patients with refractory solid tumors.
In 2008, the company selected Debio 0932, an Hsp90 inhibitor, as a development candidate from its targeted cancer programs. In its preclinical studies, Debio 0932 demonstrated potent efficacy across a range of cancers in preclinical cancer models and exhibited promising pharmacological features in preclinical testing, particularly its high oral bioavailability, high tumor penetration and extended tumor retention.
In 2009, the company granted a worldwide license to develop, manufacture, market, and sell its Hsp90 inhibitor technology, including preclinical development candidate, Debio 0932, to Debiopharm.
Other Targeted Cancer Programs
The company is seeking to advance other small molecule drug candidates from its targeted cancer programs.
Curis, Inc. was founded in 2000.

SWOT, which stands for Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats, is an analytical framework that identifies the internal and external factors that are favorable and unfavorable for a company.
Enhanced SWOT Analysis
Enhanced SWOT is a 3×3 grid that arranges strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats into one scheme:
- How to use the strengths to take advantage of the opportunities?
- How to use the strengths to reduce likelihood and impact of the threats?
- How to overcome the weaknesses that obstruct taking advantage of the opportunities?
- How to overcome the weaknesses that can make the threats a reality?
Upon answering these questions a company can develop a project plan to improve its business performance.
PESTEL (also termed as PESTLE) is an ideal tool to strategically analyze what influence different outside factors – political, economic, sociocultural, technological, environmental and legal – exert on a business to later chart its long term targets.
Being part of the external analysis when carrying out a strategic assessment or performing a market study, PESTEL gives an overview of diverse macro-environmental factors that any company should thoughtfully consider. By perceiving these outside environments, businesses can maximally benefit from the opportunities while minimizing the threats to the organization.
Key Factors Examined by PESTEL Analysis:
- Political – What opportunities and pressures are brought by political bodies and what is the degree of public regulations’ impact on the business?
- Economic – What economic policies, trends and structures are expected to affect the organization, what is this influence’s degree?
- Sociological – What cultural and societal aspects will work upon the demand for the business’s products and operations?
- Technological – What impact do the technological aspects, innovations, incentives and barriers have on the organization?
- Environmental – What environmental and ecological facets, both locally and farther afield, are likely to predetermine the business?
- Legal – What laws and legislation will exert influence on the style the business is carried out?
IFE, EFE, IE Matrices
The Internal Factor Evaluation matrix (IFE matrix) is a strategic management tool helping audit or evaluate major weaknesses and strengths in a business’s functional areas. In addition, IFE matrix serves as a basis for identifying and assessing relationships amongst those areas. The IFE matrix is utilised in strategy formulation.
The External Factor Evaluation matrix (EFE matrix) is a tool of strategic management that is typically utilised to assess current market conditions. It is an ideal instrument for visualising and prioritising the threats and opportunities a firm is facing.
The essential difference between the above mentioned matrices lies in the type of factors incorporated in the model; whilst the latter is engaged in internal factors, the former deals exceptionally with external factors – those exposed to social, political, economic, legal, etc. external forces.
Being a continuation of the EFE matrix and IFE matrix models, the Internal External matrix (IE matrix) rests upon an investigation of external and internal business factors integrated into one suggestive model.
Porter Five Forces Analysis
The Porter’s five forces analysis studies the industry of operation and helps the company find new sources of competitive advantage. The analysis surveys an industry through five major questions:
- What composes a threat of substitute products and services?
- Is there a threat of new competitors entering the market?
- What is the intensity of competitive rivalry?
- How big is the bargaining power of buyers?
- How significant is the bargaining power of suppliers?
VRIO stands for Value, Rarity, Imitability, Organization. This analysis helps to evaluate all company’s resources and capabilities and bring them together into one aggregate table that includes:
- Tangible resources
- Intangible resources
- Innovation and Creativity
- Organizational capabilities
The result of the analysis gives a clear picture of company’s competitive and economic implications, answering the questions if the resources mentioned above are:
- Costly to imitate?
- Organized properly?
