About Deciphera Pharmaceuticals

Deciphera Pharmaceuticals is a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company
focused on improving the lives of cancer patients by tackling key
mechanisms of drug resistance that limit the rate and/or durability of
response to existing cancer therapies. Our small molecule drug
candidates are directed against an important family of enzymes called
kinases, known to be directly involved in the growth and spread of many
cancers. We use our deep understanding of kinase biology together with a
proprietary chemistry library to purposefully design compounds that
maintain kinases in a "switched off" or inactivated conformation. These
investigational therapies comprise tumor-targeted agents designed to
address therapeutic resistance causing mutations and immuno-targeted
agents designed to control the activation of immunokinases that suppress
critical immune system regulators, such as macrophages. We have used our
platform to develop a diverse pipeline of tumor-targeted and
immuno-targeted drug candidates designed to improve outcomes for
patients with cancer by improving the quality, rate and/or durability of
their responses to treatment.
