Cyclacel Pharmaceuticals Reports Third Quarter 2018 Financial Results
Conference Call Scheduled
“We continue to execute on our strategy to rapidly develop CYC065 and CYC140 in hematological malignancies and CYC065 in advanced solid tumors,” said
Key Company Highlights
- Announced a three-year strategic alliance agreement with
The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Centerenabling clinical evaluation of three Cyclacel medicines in patients with hematological malignancies. MD Anderson will conduct four clinical studies, with a total projected enrollment of up to 170 patients, investigating CYC065, CYC140 and sapacitabine either as single agents or in combination with approved drugs.
- Opened for enrollment the Phase 1 clinical trial evaluating CYC065 in combination with venetoclax, a Bcl-2 inhibitor, in patients with relapsed/refractory CLL. Preclinical data presented at AACR 2018 showed enhanced activity of CYC065 and venetoclax combination in CLL tumor samples, including those with 17p deletions. The combination also demonstrated activity in two CLL samples resistant to either agent alone, suggesting that dual targeting of Mcl-1 and Bcl-2 dependent mechanisms could induce synergistic cell death.
- First patient dosed in the Phase 1b/2 investigator-sponsored trial (IST) of sapacitabine with olaparib, an approved PARP inhibitor, in BRCA positive patients with breast cancer. Preclinical data support the hypothesis that dual targeting of the DNA damage response pathway by combining olaparib with sapacitabine may enhance the efficacy of standard of care treatment for BRCA positive patients with breast cancer.
- Activated the CYC140 first-in-human study in advanced leukemias. CYC140 is a novel, small molecule, selective polo-like-kinase 1 (PLK1) inhibitor. CYC140 is differentiated from other PLK1 inhibitors, demonstrating potent and selective target inhibition and high activity in xenograft models of human cancers when dosed orally at non-toxic doses.
- Progressed patient enrollment in part 2 of the Phase 1 study evaluating CYC065 monotherapy in patients with advanced solid tumors including those with Mcl-1, MYC or cyclin E amplified cancers relevant to CYC065’s mechanism of action. Part 2 is evaluating increased dosing frequency of two days per week for two weeks of a three-week cycle.
- Completed meetings with three European regulatory authorities with the objective of determining a potential regulatory pathway for sapacitabine in elderly AML. The regulators provided consistent guidance on next steps and Cyclacel is evaluating a potential request for a meeting with the
Scientific Advice Working Partyof the European Medicines Agency.
Robert J. Spiegel, M.D. to the Board of Directors. Dr. Spiegel brings over 30 years of R&D and operational experience in the biopharmaceutical industry as well as advisory experience to venture capital and private equity funds.
