FORMA Therapeutics, Inc. Key Developments

FORMA Therapeutics Enrolls First Patient in Phase 1 Study of FT-1101 in Advanced Hematological Malignancies

FORMA Therapeutics announced the initiation of a Phase 1 study of FT-1101, with the first dose administration in patients with relapsed/refractory acute myeloid leukemia (AML) or high-risk myelodysplastic syndrome. FT-1101 is an oral, structurally distinct and potent pan-inhibitor of the BET (Bromodomain and Extra-Terminal) epigenetic protein family. Small molecule inhibition of BET results in down-regulation of the critical oncogene MYC, a master regulator of diverse cell functions critical for cell growth and survival in many cancers. At tolerated doses in human tumor xenograft mousemodels, FT-1101 has demonstrated significant anti-tumor activity including tumor regressions. FT-1101 is part of FORMA’s second global strategic collaboration with Celgene Corporation announced in April 2014. Celgene has obtained an exclusive EU license for FT-1101 in exchange for an undisclosed payment to FORMA. Under the terms of the collaboration agreement, FORMA will advance the FT-1101 program through Phase 1, and Celgene will be responsible to fund and execute further global clinical development. The Phase 1 multicenter, open-label, dose escalation clinical trial is designed to assess the safety and tolerability of FT-1101 capsules as a single agent. FT-1101 will be administered orally on a once weekly dosing schedule in a 28-day cycle. The study will enroll patients with relapsed refractory AML and high risk myelodysplastic syndrome. Key objectives in the study include determination of a maximum tolerated dose, pharmacokinetics, pharmacodynamics and preliminary anti-tumor activity of FT-1101.
