CAMBRIDGE, Mass., Nov. 1, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Blueprint Medicines (NASDAQ: BPMC) today announced its 2027 Blueprint to achieve precision medicine at scale, a five-year business strategy to expand the company's reach to broader patient populations by leveraging its scientific leadership, proven development capability and integrated business. The company plans to highlight this business strategy, including commercial plans to bring AYVAKIT to patients with non-advanced systemic mastocytosis (SM), at its Investor Day event today. In addition, Blueprint Medicines today reported financial results and provided a business update for the third quarter ended September 30, 2022.
"The opportunity to bring AYVAKIT to patients with non-advanced SM, based on the positive results of the PIONEER study, will enable us to scale our impact and address the needs of a significantly larger patient population in the near term," said Kate Haviland, Chief Executive Officer of Blueprint Medicines. "This morning at our Investor Day, we will highlight our 2027 Blueprint strategy to double our impact in five years across multiple metrics of portfolio strength. We plan to achieve this scale with the potential launch of AYVAKIT in non-advanced SM, multiple advancing clinical development programs for EGFR-mutant lung cancer and CDK2-vulnerable breast cancer, and an expansive precision therapy research pipeline, all of which build on our R&D achievements to date and leverage our fully integrated global infrastructure."
"In addition, today we are reaffirming total revenue guidance for full-year 2022, while we lower product revenue guidance based on performance in the third quarter and our near-term expectations for growth. Over the last year, we have established AYVAKIT as the standard of care in patients who are being actively treated for their advanced SM, and we are now focusing on increasing treatment rates in patients with SM and an associated hematologic neoplasm, where there has been lower adoption. In parallel, we are prioritizing efforts to bring AYVAKIT to patients with non-advanced SM, which, if approved, would represent a 15-fold or larger opportunity based on the number of patients with moderate-to-severe non-advanced SM who are diagnosed, being treated for their SM, and observable in U.S. claims data today."
2027 Blueprint Global Business Strategy
Building on Blueprint Medicines' significant achievements over the last decade, including the regulatory approval of two internally discovered precision therapies within the company's first decade, the five-year 2027 Blueprint strategy aims to double the company's impact across multiple measures of portfolio strength in about half the time.
Blueprint Medicines aims to achieve the following by the end of 2027:
