IRBM to Disclose Strong Antitumor Efficacy of Novel Preclinical Agents Against Aggressive Brain Tumors and Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia at AACR

ROMEApril 4, 2024 /originally distributed by PRNewswire/– IRBM, a leader in the field of drug discovery, announced today that it will be disclosing new data on two of its most promising internal assets at the upcoming American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) Annual Meeting occurring in San DiegoApril 5-10. The data will reveal insights into the novel compounds developed to address critical unmet needs in cancer treatment.

Asset Highlights:

  • Potential first-in-class Antibody-Drug Conjugate (ADC) targeting CRLF2/TLSPR in “Ph-like” B-ALL (AM E3-SG3249) demonstrated significant preclinical efficacy, representing a pioneering approach to treating hematologic cancer characterized by poor prognosis and high relapse rates, often affecting adolescents.
  • Potential best-in-class brain permeable SHP2 allosteric inhibitor (I-1000233) exhibited promising results in preclinical studies, offering a new method of treating patients with RAS-driven malignancies, including challenging brain tumors and metastases.

Carlo Toniatti, MD, PhD, Chief Scientific Officer at IRBM, expressed his enthusiasm for the upcoming presentations: “The AACR meeting presents a unique opportunity for IRBM to share our latest advancements in cancer research with the global scientific community. Our work on the CRLF2/TLSPR targeting ADC and CNS-penetrant SHP2 small molecule inhibitor exemplifies our relentless pursuit of novel therapeutic strategies that can make a significant difference in the lives of patients battling cancer. These developments reflect our deep scientific expertise and innovative spirit, underscoring IRBM’s role as a frontrunner in the integrated drug discovery industry.”

The two assets, which have been progressed through the discovery phase within the public-private environment of the National Collection of Chemical Compounds and Screening Center (CNCCS), are a testament to IRBM’s integrated research capabilities, their commitment to advancing science to improve lives, and their pursuit of new and better treatments for cancer.
