Daiichi Sankyo (Japan) Enters into Collaboration with National Cancer Center of Japan

Daiichi Sankyo (Japan) has entered into a collaboration with the National Cancer Center of Japan to develop an inhibitor for DS-1001 (mutant isocitrate dehydrogenase IDH1) as a new treatment for gliomas (malignant brain tumours), the parties said in a statement. In addition, the two parties aim to initiate a multi-centre Phase I clinical trial of DS-1001 in patients with recurrent IDH1 mutant gliomas who have no standard treatment. IDH1 and IDH2 gene mutations are frequently observed in patients with malignant tumours such as gliomas, acute myeloid leukaemia (AML), cholangiocarcinoma, and chondrosarcoma. IDH1 gene mutations are observed in more than 70% of patients diagnosed as grade 2 or 3 gliomas (astrocytomas or oligodendrogliomas), with cases most frequently observed in people aged 30-50 years. The collaboration agreement follows research by the National Cancer Center Research Institute's showing that inhibition of mutant IDH1/2 was able to eliminate AML cancer stem cells, and preclinical studies also demonstrated that DS-1001 was effective in suppressing the proliferation of AML, malignant gliomas, and chondrosarcoma. The collaboration reflects a growing trend of corporate-academia partnerships in Japan, which have the advantage of aligning academic research more closely with market and patient demand, as well as corporate funding. In particular, the agreement further extends Japan's National Cancer Center's series of collaborations.
