Solid Tumors

The majority of cancers arise in major organs and are collectively referred to as solid tumors. According to the American Cancer Society, approximately 1.5 million new cases are expected to be diagnosed in 2009. The specific solid tumor subtype and stage of disease determines initial treatment, which may include chemotherapy, radiation therapy, surgery or a combination of therapies. Although many patients respond to treatment, many eventually relapse and become resistant to treatment, underscoring the need for additional treatment options.

Onyx is currently testing carfilzomib in an ongoing Phase 1/2b trial evaluating its safety and efficacy as a single-agent in patients with recurrent or advanced solid tumors in non-small cell lung cancer, small cell lung cancer, ovarian cancer and kidney cancer.
