Curis Announces New Preclinical Data Highlighting the Potential of CA-4948 in Multiple Hematologic Malignancies Presented at the AACR-NCI-EORTC Virtual Conference on Molecular Targets and Cancer Therapeutics
Excerpt from the Press Release:
LEXINGTON, Mass., Oct. 7, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Curis, Inc. (NASDAQ: CRIS), a biotechnology company focused on the development of innovative therapeutics for the treatment of cancer, today announced two poster presentations with new preclinical data for CA-4948, a first-in-class small molecule IRAK4 inhibitor, at the AACR-NCI-EORTC Virtual Conference on Molecular Targets and Cancer Therapeutics.
“In ongoing Phase 1 clinical trials, CA-4948 has already demonstrated anti-tumor activity in non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, acute myeloid leukemia and myelodysplastic syndromes. New preclinical data presented at AACR-NCI-EORTC today support the potential of CA-4948 in additional hematologic cancers,” said James Dentzer, President and Chief Executive Officer of Curis.
“Notably, these new preclinical data indicate that CA-4948 is synergistic with small molecules targeting BCR signaling, including both idelalisib and ibrutinib, and suggest it may help overcome or reduce secondary resistance to these therapies in marginal zone lymphoma. In addition, these data demonstrate that CA-4948 can cross the blood brain barrier and improve survival, in a dose-dependent manner, providing additional preclinical support for the study of CA-4948 in patients with primary central nervous system (pCNS) lymphoma, one of the most aggressive forms of lymphoma and a clear area of unmet need for patients.” Mr. Dentzer added.
