Oncology products

Incyte (INCY) classifies its oncology product portfolio based on the therapies used for treating these diseases. These categories include immuno-oncology therapies and targeted anti-cancer therapies.

Immuno-therapies target the patient’s immune system to fight cancer cells. The products in INCY’s immuno-therapy portfolio include Epacadostat and several other drugs. Incyte has a collaborative agreement with Merck & Co. (MRK) and Bristol-Myers Squibb (BMY) with respect to Epacadostat.

Targeted anti-cancer therapies target cancer cells while causing minimal damage to normal cells. The products under targeted therapies include Jakafi (ruxolitinib), Iclusig, and Itacitinib. Iclusig is approved for patients with Philadelphia-chromosome positive acute lymphoblastic leukemia and chronic myeloid leukemia. Iclusig was acquired by Incyte from Ariad Pharmaceuticals in 2016.
