Galera Therapeutics, Inc. Key Developments

Galera Therapeutics Announces Fast Track Designation of GC4419 for Prevention of Oral Mucositis

Galera Therapeutics, Inc. announced that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has granted Fast Track designation for GC4419, an investigational drug candidate, for the reduction of severity and incidence of radiation and chemotherapy induced oral mucositis (OM). Galera also announced that it has begun enrolling patients in a Phase 2b study of GC4419 for the reduction of OM in head and neck cancer (HNC) patients. The FDA Fast Track process is designed to facilitate the development and expedite the review of drugs intended to treat serious or life-threatening conditions and that demonstrate the potential to address unmet medical needs. This designation provides for more frequent consultation between the FDA and the sponsor, as well as the potential "rolling review" of completed sections of the New Drug Application (NDA), and potential eligibility for accelerated approval and priority review. Based on Phase 1b/2a trial results of GC4419 in HNC patients receiving chemoradiation therapy, Galera has begun enrolling patients in a double-blind, randomized Phase 2b clinical trial to prevent OM in this setting.
