Infinity Announces Presentations On Investigational Development Candidates, Duvelisib And IPI-549, At Upcoming EHA And ASCO Meetings
-- Preliminary Data from CONTEMPO, a Phase 1b/2 Combination Study Evaluating Duvelisib in Treatment-Naïve Patients with Follicular Lymphoma, to Be Presented at EHA --

CAMBRIDGE, Mass., May 19, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Infinity Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NASDAQ: INFI) today announced that new data will be presented for duvelisib, an investigational, oral, dual inhibitor of phosphoinositide-3-kinase (PI3K)-delta and PI3K-gamma, at the 21st Congress of the European Hematology Association (EHA) taking place from June 9 – 12, 2016, in Copenhagen. At the meeting, preliminary data from CONTEMPO, a Phase 1b/2 study evaluating duvelisib in combination with rituximab or obinutuzmab in treatment-naïve follicular lymphoma patients, will be presented in a poster session. Duvelisib is the only dual inhibitor of PI3K-delta,gamma in Phase 3 clinical development and is in registration-focused studies in patients with relapsed/refractory indolent non-Hodgkin lymphoma (iNHL) and relapsed/refractory chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL). Infinity and AbbVie are jointly developing duvelisib in oncology.

Additionally, posters reviewing ongoing clinical studies of duvelisib and IPI-549, Infinity's investigational immuno-oncology development candidate that selectively inhibits PI3K-gamma, will be presented at the 2016 American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) Annual Meeting taking place in Chicago from June 3 7, 2016.

Presentations and publications are listed below. All abstracts are available on the conference websites.

About Duvelisib
Duvelisib is an investigational dual inhibitor of phosphoinositide-3-kinase (PI3K)-delta and PI3K-gamma, two proteins that are known to help support the growth and survival of malignant B-cells. PI3K signaling may lead to the proliferation of malignant B-cells and is thought to play a role in the formation and maintenance of the supportive tumor microenvironment. 1-3AbbVie and Infinity Pharmaceuticals, Inc. are jointly researching and developing duvelisib in various cancer types.

Duvelisib is being evaluated in several studies, including a Phase 2 study in patients with refractory indolent non-Hodgkin lymphoma4, a Phase 3 study in combination with other agents in patients with previously treated follicular lymphoma5 and a Phase 3 study in patients with relapsed/refractory chronic lymphocytic leukemia6. Duvelisib is an investigational compound and its safety and efficacy have not been evaluated by the FDA or any other health authority.

About IPI-549
IPI-549 is an orally administered immuno-oncology development candidate that selectively inhibits PI3K-gamma. In preclinical studies, IPI-549 inhibits immune-suppressive macrophages within the tumor microenvironment, whereas other immunotherapies such as checkpoint modulators more directly target immune effector cell function. As such, IPI-549 may have the potential to treat a broad range of solid tumors and represents a potentially complementary approach to restoring anti-tumor immunity in combination with other immunotherapies such as checkpoint inhibitors.

These are investigational drugs being studied for indications that have not been approved by Regulatory Agencies. Safety and efficacy have not been established in unapproved indications.
