About SuperGen Inc.
SuperGen, Inc., a pharmaceutical company, engages in the discovery, development, and commercialization of therapies to treat patients with cancer.
Products in Research and Development
Amuvatinib (MP-470)-DNA Repair Suppressor: Amuvatinib is a multi-targeted Tyrosine Kinase Inhibitor that is specific for mutant forms of c-kit, PDGFRa, and FLT3. Amuvatinib is also a suppressor of Rad51, a DNA repair protein which is involved in resistance to various chemotherapy agents and radiation.
SGI-1776Pim Kinase Inhibitor: Pim kinases are proteins that play a pivotal survival role in cancer cells. Over-expression of Pim kinases in cells prevents programmed cell death that normally occurs when cells malfunction and can lead to unchecked cell survival, or cancer. The companys Pim kinase inhibitor, SGI-1776, is an orally administered, small molecule anticancer compound that blocks the pro-survival activity of Pim kinases, allowing malignant cells to self-abort. The company initiated a Phase I clinical trial to evaluate the safety, tolerability, and pharmacokinetic profile of SGI-1776 in the first half of 2009.
SGI-110DNMT1 Inhibitor: In normal cells, silencing of unnecessary genes is commonly carried out by DNA methylation through the action of DNA Methyltransferase enzymes. The company has developed a compound called SGI-110 which targets and blocks the mechanism by which methylation occurs, thus allowing re-expression of tumor suppressor genes in tumors.
JAK2 Inhibitor: Janus kinases (JAK) are a family of non-receptor intracellular tyrosine kinases that transduce signaling from type I and II cytokine receptors, which possess no catalytic kinase activity, to the signal transducers and activators of transcription (STAT) proteins which translocate into the nucleus to initiate the growth and differentiation programs associated with the various receptor cytokine complexes. The JAK/STAT pathways play a role in an array of cellular processes, including cell survival, proliferation, differentiation, and apoptosis.
Axl Inhibitor: Axl kinase is a receptor tyrosine kinase implicated in tumorigenesis. Over-expression of Axl is associated with increased cellular transformation, cell survival, proliferation, migration, angiogenesis, and adhesion.
ETK/BMX Inhibitors: Epithelial and endothelial tyrosine kinase (ETK), also known as bone marrow X kinase (BMX), is a nonreceptor tyrosine kinase that plays a role in the proliferation, differentiation, apoptosis, adhesion, motility, and tumorigenicity of epithelial cells.
Commercial License Agreements
In October 2009, the company entered into a commercial license and research agreement with GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) to discover and develop specific epigenetic therapeutics to develop, commercialize, and sell the resulting products worldwide.
The companys competitors include ArQule, Array BioPharma, Astex Tx, Crystal Genomics, Exelixis, Infinity, Plexxikon, Vertex, Sanofi-Aventis, Bristol-Myers Squibb Company, Celgene, Eli Lilly & Co., GSK, Novartis AG, and Pfizer.

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?
