Nektar Drug Development Programs and Partnered Drug Development Programs

Oral NKTR-118 and NKTR-119, License Agreement with AstraZeneca AB

Oral NKTR-118 is a peripheral opioid antagonist that is being evaluated for the treatment of opioid-induced constipation.

In September 2009, the company entered into a license agreement with AstraZeneca AB, in which the company granted AstraZeneca a worldwide license to develop, market, and sell Oral NKTR-118 and NKTR-119. NKTR-119 is an early stage drug development program that is intended to combine Oral NKTR-118 with selected opioids, with the goal of treating pain without the side effect of constipation traditionally associated with opioid therapy. AstraZeneca is responsible for all further research and development activities for NKTR-119.

BAY41-6551 (NKTR-061, Amikacin Inhale), Agreement with Bayer Healthcare LLC

The company, in August 2007, entered into a co-development, license and co-promotion agreement with Bayer Healthcare LLC (Bayer) to develop a specially-formulated Amikacin (BAY41-6551, NKTR-061, Amikacin Inhale). The company is responsible for all development of the nebulizer device used in BAY41-6551through the completion of Phase 3 clinical trials and for clinical and commercial manufacturing and supply of the nebulizer device. BAY41-6551 is in clinical development to treat Gram-negative pneumonias, including Hospital-Acquired (HAP), Healthcare-Associated, and Ventilator-Associated pneumonias. This product candidate can be integrated with conventional mechanical ventilators or used as a hand-held ‘off-vent’ device for patients no longer requiring breathing assistance. This product candidate has completed Phase 2 clinical development.

NKTR-102 (Topoisomerase I inhibitor-polymer conjugate)

The company is in the process of developing NKTR-102, a novel topoisomerase I inhibitor-polymer conjugate that was designed using its advanced polymer conjugate technology platform. This product candidate is in Phase 2 clinical development in multiple cancer indications including breast, colorectal and ovarian. Irinotecan, also known as Camptosar, is a topoisomerase I inhibitor used for the treatment of solid tumors.

NKTR-105 (PEGylated docetaxel)

NKTR-105 is a PEGylated conjugate form of docetaxel, an anti-neoplastic agent belonging to the taxoid family that acts by disrupting the microtubular network in cells. Docetaxel is a major chemotherapy agent approved for use in five different cancer indications: breast, non-small cell lung, prostate, gastric, and head and neck. NKTR-105 is being evaluated in a Phase 1 clinical trial in cancer patients that began in February 2009.

NKTR-181 (abuse deterrent, tamper-resistant opioid)

NKTR-181 is being developed as a safer opioid with reduced potential for abuse engineered using advanced polymer conjugation technology platform. By regulating entry of the drug into the CNS, this polymer-conjugate opioid drug candidate is designed to have potent analgesia with the potential for fewer side effects associated with sedation, a reduced risk of death due to respiratory depression, and less euphoria associated with administration, resulting in an abuse-deterrent analgesic. This program is in the early stages of research and preclinical development.

NKTR-194 (non-scheduled opioid)

NKTR-194 is an opioid designed using advanced polymer conjugation technology platform to be totally excluded from the CNS and therefore act only against peripheral pain. This program is in the early stages of research and preclinical development.

SWOT Analysis

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 Analysis

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:

  1. What composes a threat of substitute products and services?
  2. Is there a threat of new competitors entering the market?
  3. What is the intensity of competitive rivalry?
  4. How big is the bargaining power of buyers?
  5. How significant is the bargaining power of suppliers?

VRIO Analysis

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
    • Financial
    • Physical
    • Technological
    • Organizational
  • Intangible resources
    • Human
    • Innovation and Creativity
    • Reputation
  • 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:

  • Valuable?
  • Rare?
  • Costly to imitate?
  • Organized properly?
