IDEAYA and Pfizer Enter Clinical Trial Collaboration and Supply Agreement to Evaluate Clinical Combination of IDE196 and Binimetinib in Solid Tumors Harboring GNAQ or GNA11 Hotspot Mutations
"The prevalence of GNAQ or GNA11 hotspot mutations in MUM, Cutaneous Melanoma, CRC, and other solid tumors represents approximately 6,000 patients in the
The clinical combination study will evaluate whether inhibition of the MAP-Kinase pathway at two nodes, through upstream PKC and downstream MEK, will enhance the response rate and depth and durability of clinical benefit in patients whose solid tumors harbor GNAQ or GNA11 hotspot mutations. The clinical trial will also study pharmacokinetics of each agent and tolerability of the combination.
"We are thrilled to work with
IDEAYA is an oncology-focused precision medicine company committed to the discovery and development of targeted therapeutics for patient populations selected using molecular diagnostics. IDEAYA's approach integrates capabilities in identifying and validating translational biomarkers with small molecule drug discovery to select patient populations most likely to benefit from the targeted therapies IDEAYA is developing. IDEAYA is applying these capabilities across multiple classes of precision medicine, including direct targeting of oncogenic pathways and synthetic lethality – which represents an emerging class of precision medicine targets.
This press release contains forward-looking statements, including, but not limited to, statements related to (i) the clinical potential of binimetinib in combination with IDE196, including whether the combination will enhance the response rate, and the depth and durability of clinical benefit and (ii) the timing of initiation of the combination clinical trial of IDE196 plus binimetinib in mid-2020. Such forward-looking statements involve substantial risks and uncertainties that could cause IDEAYA's preclinical and clinical development programs, future results, performance or achievements to differ significantly from those expressed or implied by the forward-looking statements. Such risks and uncertainties include, among others, the uncertainties inherent in the drug development process, including IDEAYA's programs' early stage of development, the process of designing and conducting preclinical and clinical trials, the regulatory approval processes, the timing of regulatory filings, the challenges associated with manufacturing drug products, IDEAYA's ability to successfully establish, protect and defend its intellectual property and other matters that could affect the sufficiency of existing cash to fund operations. IDEAYA undertakes no obligation to update or revise any forward-looking statements. For a further description of the risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ from those expressed in these forward-looking statements, as well as risks relating to the business of IDEAYA in general, see IDEAYA's recent Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q filed on
