Syndax Pharmaceuticals, Inc. Enters Clinical Trial Collaboration with Genentech in Cancer Immunotherapy Combining Entinostat and Atezolizumab

Syndax Pharmaceuticals, Inc. announced that it has entered into a clinical collaboration with Genentech to evaluate the safety, tolerability and preliminary efficacy of Syndax's entinostat, an oral small molecule that targets immune regulatory cells (myeloid-derived suppressor cells (MDSCs) and regulatory T cells (Tregs)), in combination with Genentech's atezolizumab (MPDL3280A), a fully humanized monoclonal antibody targeting protein programmed cell death ligand 1 (PD-L1), in patients with triple-negative breast cancer. Triple-negative breast cancer is estimated to account for 10-20% of all diagnosed breast cancers and is characterized by a lack of expression of estrogen receptor (ER-), progesterone receptor (PR-) and HER2 (HER2-) on the breast cancer cells. Syndax will be responsible for conducting the Phase 1b/2 clinical trial in triple-negative breast cancer and the agreement includes a provision where the parties may extend the collaboration to include a Phase 3 clinical trial as well as additional trials in new indications of mutual interest.
