A Nano Drug's Giant Promise

Abstract:
Dr. Patrick Soon-Shiong isn't a big fan of the word "vindicated," but sometimes he just can't resist uttering it. And who can blame him? In January, the U.S. Food & Drug Administration approved Abraxane, a new cancer-treatment drug made by American Pharmaceutical Partners (APPX ), which Soon-Shiong founded.

During a 10-year battle to get the drug to market, Schaumburg (Ill.)-based APP weathered lawsuits from investors who thought Soon-Shiong was hyping the Abraxane's prospects, attacks by short-sellers who were convinced APP's stock would plummet, and even fraud accusations from Soon-Shiong's own brother, who was once his business partner. "People thought it was blue-sky, crazy, impossible," Soon-Shiong says of the new drug.
