Ligand Pharmaceuticals Inc.  - In 1995, we entered into a research and development collaboration with SmithKline Beecham (now GlaxoSmithKline) to use our proprietary expertise to discover and characterize small-molecule, orally bioavailable drugs to control hematopoiesis (the formation and development of blood cells) for the treatment of a variety of blood cell deficiencies. Eltrombopag and a back up compound, SB-559448, resulted from this collaboration. These compounds are orally active, non-peptide, small molecule thrombopoietin (TPO) mimetics for the treatment of thrombocytopenia (low platelet counts). Eltrombopag is in Phase III clinical trials for immune thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP). GlaxoSmithKline plans to file an NDA for the ITP indication in late 2007/early 2008. A Phase III clinical trial in patients with hepatitis C is planned in 2H07. In addition, Phase I/II studies are ongoing in patients with chemotherapy-induced thrombocytopenia. The backup compound, SB-559448, is in Phase I clinical trials.
