Progenics Pharmaceuticals, Inc.is engaged in developing medicines for oncology. The Company completed Phase II clinical trials of two product candidates for prostate cancer, and resumed a pivotal Phase II trial of an ultra-orphan radiotherapy candidate for pheochromocytoma. Its principal clinical-stage product candidates in oncology are PSMA ADC, 1404 (trofolastat) and Azedra.

Azedra is a radiotherapeutic product candidate in development as a treatment for pheochromocytoma, a rare tumor found in the adrenal glands, and related paraganglioma tumors occurring in other tissues. The Company also commercializes Relistor, a cure for opioid-induced constipation (OIC).
