Competition

        There are currently no FDA-approved drugs other than FOLOTYN for the treatment of patients with relapsed or refractory PTCL. However, we are aware of multiple investigational agents that are currently being studied in clinical trials for T-cell lymphoma, including romidepsin and belinostat, which, if successful, may compete with FOLOTYN in the United States. In addition, there are many existing approaches used in the treatment of relapsed or refractory PTCL, including combination chemotherapy and single agent regimens, which represent competition for FOLOTYN.

        Many companies of all sizes, including a number of large pharmaceutical companies and several biotechnology companies, are developing product candidates that have disease targets similar to those we are pursuing. Some of these competitive product candidates are in clinical trials and others are approved. There are products and technologies currently on the market that will compete directly with FOLOTYN. Universities, governmental agencies and other public and private research organizations also conduct research and may market commercial products on their own or through joint ventures. These companies and institutions also compete with us in recruiting qualified scientific personnel. Many of these entities may have:

    substantially greater financial and other resources;

    larger research and development staffs;

    lower labor costs; and/or

    more extensive sales, marketing and manufacturing organizations.

        Many of these companies and organizations have significant experience in preclinical testing, human clinical trials, product manufacturing, marketing, sales and distribution and other regulatory approval and commercial procedures. They may also have a greater number of significant patents and greater legal resources to seek remedies for cases of alleged infringement of their patents by us to block, delay, or compromise our own drug development process.

        We expect technology developments in our industry to continue to occur at a rapid pace. Commercial developments by our competitors may render FOLOTYN obsolete or non-competitive, which would have a material adverse effect on our business and financial condition.

Competition

        The pharmaceutical industry is characterized by rapidly evolving technology and intense competition. Many companies of all sizes, including a number of large pharmaceutical companies and several biotechnology companies, are developing cancer therapies similar to ours. There are products and technologies currently on the market that will compete directly with the products that we are developing. In addition, colleges, universities, governmental agencies and other public and private research institutions will continue to conduct research and are becoming more active in seeking patent protection and licensing arrangements to collect license fees, milestone payments and royalties in exchange for license rights to technologies that they have developed, some of which may directly compete with our technologies. These companies and institutions also compete with us in recruiting qualified scientific personnel. Many of our competitors have substantially greater financial, research and development, human and other resources than do we. Furthermore, large pharmaceutical companies may have significantly more experience than we do in preclinical testing, human clinical trials, manufacturing, regulatory approval and commercialization procedures. Our competitors may:

    develop or acquire safer and/or more effective products;

    obtain patent protection or intellectual property rights that limit our ability to commercialize products; and/or

    commercialize products earlier or more effectively than us.

        We expect technology developments in our industry to continue to occur at a rapid pace. Commercial developments by our competitors may render some or all of our potential products obsolete or non-competitive, which would have a material adverse effect on our business and financial condition.

        While there are currently no FDA-approved agents in the United States indicated for the treatment of PTCL, we are aware of multiple investigational agents that are currently being studied in clinical trials. There are also several agents and regimens, such as CHOP, that are currently used by physicians without an FDA label in PTCL that could potentially represent competition for pralatrexate.
