Exelixis to cut jobs after prostate cancer drug fails late-stage study
Mon 7:02 pm ET (Reuters)
Cancer drug developer Exelixis Inc said on Monday it would cut about 70 percent of its workforce after its experimental prostate cancer drug cabozantinib failed a late-stage study. The drug did not show a statistically significant increase in overall survival in men treated with cabozantinib as compared with prednisone, the company said. Prednisone, a generic drug manufactured by several companies, treats some inflammatory diseases as well as some types of cancer. Food and Drug Administration approved Exelixis' Cometriq, or cabozantinib, for the treatment of a rare type of thyroid cancer.
