We are developing a comprehensive Oncology portfolio with an emphasis in 4 key platforms: DNA damage repair, Immunotherapy, Tumour Drivers & Resistance and Antibody Drug Conjugates, in 4 core disease areas: Breast, Ovarian, Lung and Hematology.

AstraZeneca is no stranger to Oncology and our heritage actually began with the development of tamoxifen in 1962. More recently, we have brought major treatment advances to Canadian cancer patients including Lynparza (ovarian), Faslodex (breast), Tagrisso and Iressa (lung) with numerous new products and indications on the horizon. Thousands of patients in Canada benefit everyday from these ground-breaking products and the future holds even more promise and hope for cancer patients.

Identified as one of three core therapy areas globally, our goal is to become a leader in this space through following the science developed at our own R&D facilities as well as through targeted acquisitions and partnerships. Targeted treatments that specifically address the underlying mechanisms of disease are the future of cancer treatment. We are exploring multiple platforms to attack tumours, including monoclonal antibodies, antibody-drug conjugates, bi-specific antibodies and small molecule chemistry & oligonucleotides.

Science and patients are at the heart of everything we do.
