About YM BioSciences Inc.
YM BioSciences Inc., a biopharmaceutical company, engages in the development of products primarily for the treatment of patients with cancer.
The companys portfolio of products in active clinical development includes three anti-cancer agents in various clinical trials are its small molecule JAK1/2 inhibitor, CYT387; Nimotuzumab; and CYT997.
CYT387: CYT387, a small molecule pyrimidine kinase inhibitor is used to develop drugs for the inhibition of the JAK2 enzyme. CYT387 is a dual inhibitor of the kinases JAK1 and JAK2 for the treatment of myeloproliferative disorders and prospectively other diseases where over-activity of JAK1 and JAK2 occur, such as various cancers. Overactive JAK2 has been implicated in various diseases, including cancers, such as leukemia and lymphoma, and various autoimmune diseases. CYT387 has completed the phase I tranche of a phase I/II trial in sufferers of myelofibrosis, a scarring of the bone marrow which can be debilitating.
Nimotuzumab: Nimotuzumab, a humanized monoclonal antibody, targeting the protein known as epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR), is designed to treat epithelial cancers and to be administered prior to, simultaneously with, or subsequent to, chemotherapy and radiotherapy in phase II trials. The drug has been approved for sale in 20 countries, including the Peoples Republic of China (PRC), Brazil, Argentina, India, and Mexico, variously for head and neck cancer, adult and pediatric glioma, and nasopharangeal cancer. Certain of its rights to nimotuzumab have been sub-licensed to Daiichi-Sankyo Co. Ltd in Japan, Oncoscience AG in Europe, to Kuhnil Pharmaceutical Company for Korea, and to Innogene Kalbiotech Ltd. of Singapore for certain Pacific-rim countries and certain African countries. As of June 30, 2010, there were 11 phase II nimotuzumab trials being conducted by the company and these 4 licensees. CIMAB supplies nimotuzumab to facilitate the clinical development of these products and manufactures product for commercialization in certain countries in which it is approved for sale.
CYT997: CYT997, a small molecule microtubule polymerisation inhibitor, is being developed for the treatment of solid and other tumours in cancer patients. CYT997 is an anticancer agent known as the vascular disrupting agents (VDAs) which are designed to destroy pathological blood vessels created by growing tumours. CYT997 can be administered both intravenously, as well as by oral capsule or tablet doses, greatly increasing its ease of use for patients and doctors. The drug has FDA clearance for conducting clinical trials. CYT997 is being studied in a phase I/II trial in patients with glioblastoma multiforme (advanced brain tumour).
The company has three additional products licensed that are not in clinical development. It has two anti-cancer vaccines, a TGFá vaccine and a HER1-targeting vaccine which are both licensed by CIMYM. In addition it owns approximately 4,000 pre-clinical molecules resulting from its acquisition of Cytopia and its own sponsored research. The 4,000 molecules are at different stages of development.
Another program, designed for inhibition of the Feline McDonough Strain kinase and the treatment of particular tumour types, including metastatic cancers, has been progressed to a point where a partner is being sought for further development and commercialisation.
In August 2010, the company discontinued the AeroLEF-related activities.
Competition: The company's competitors for nimotuzamab include Amgen, AstraZeneca, BMS, Roche, Eli Lilly, Genentech, Genmab, Merck KGaA, and OSI.

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?
