SHANGHAI and HONG KONG, May 25, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Antengene Corporation Limited ("Antengene" SEHK: 6996.HK), a leading innovative, commercial-stage global biopharmaceutical company dedicated to discovering, developing and commercializing first-in-class and/or best-in-class medicines for cancer, today announced that the latest results from the Phase I/II TORCH-2 study will be presented as a poster at the 2023 American Society for Clinical Oncology Annual Meeting (ASCO 2023) taking place from June 2nd to 6th, 2023 at the McCormick Place Convention Center in Chicago, IL. Being among the 22 China studies selected for Poster Discussions this year, the abstract will also be presented in a Poster Discussion session on June 3rd.
"It is our pleasure to have the latest results from the TORCH-2 study selected for Poster Discussion at ASCO 2023," said Dr. Amily Zhang, Antengene's Chief Medical Officer. "Going forward, we will maintain close collaboration with the investigator team of the TORCH-2 study and liaise with regulatory authorities in China and other APAC markets to align on a registration path in cervical cancer and to continue evaluating the combination in additional ongoing studies in other solid tumors."
The TORCH-2 study is a Phase I/II trial of the mTORC1/2 inhibitor ATG-008 plus the Anti-PD-1 monoclonal antibody toripalimab for the treatment of patients with advanced solid tumors. The study enrolled 46 patients, including 21 patients with cervical cancer, to evaluate ATG-008 at three doses (15, 20 and 30 mg) in combination with the standard dose of toripalimab. Study patients had advanced solid tumors with a baseline Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) score of 0-1 (the majority scored 1 on the ECOG scale) and a median of 2 lines of therapy (range:0-7). Median patient age was 53 years. Patients with prior PI3K/AKT/mTOR therapy were excluded. Pharmacokinetics and exploratory biomarkers of drug activity were also evaluated. The data are presented as of the cut-off date of October 21st, 2022.
Title: A phase I/II study of the TORC1/2 inhibitor onatasertib combined with toripalimab in patients with advanced solid tumors
Session: Developmental Therapeutics – Immunotherapy
Poster Discussion Session Date and Time: 3:00 PM - 4:30 PM, June 3, 2023 (Central Time) / 4:00 AM – 5:30 AM, June 4, 2023 (Beijing Time)
ATG-008 (onatasertib) is an orally available mTORC 1/2 inhibitor. ATG-008 inhibits the activity of mTOR, which may result in the induction of tumor cell apoptosis and a decrease in tumor cell proliferation. mTOR, a serine/threonine kinase that is upregulated in a variety of tumors, has an important role in the PI3K/AKT/mTOR signaling pathway, which is frequently dysregulated in human cancers. ATG-008 has been studied in clinical trials to treat a broad range of tumor types including multiple myeloma (MM), glioblastoma (GBM), hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL), etc.
