BOSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Verastem, Inc. (NASDAQ:VSTM), focused on discovering and developing drugs to treat cancer, today reported financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2016, and also provided an overview of certain corporate developments.

“Last week, we announced the inlicensing of the late-stage oncology product candidate duvelisib from Infinity Pharmaceuticals. This transaction brings a complementary development program on attractive financial terms,” said Robert Forrester, President and Chief Executive Officer of Verastem. “Duvelisib has a proven mechanism of action and has clinically demonstrated anti-cancer activity, along with a manageable safety profile, in several lymphoid malignancies. We believe duvelisib has the potential to help patients with lymphoma.”
