About the Pivotal Phase 2 Portion of the AUGMENT-101 Trial:
AUGMENT-101 is a Phase 1/2 open-label trial designed to evaluate the safety, tolerability, pharmacokinetics, and efficacy of orally administered revumenib. The Company previously announced positive topline data from the protocol-defined pooled analysis of the pivotal Phase 2 portion of the AUGMENT-101 trial in patients with relapsed/refractory (R/R) KMT2A-rearranged (KMT2Ar) acute leukemia. The trial met its primary endpoint with a complete remission (CR) or a CR with partial hematological recovery (CRh) rate of 23% at the interim analysis of the pooled KMT2Ar acute myeloid leukemia and acute lymphoid leukemia cohorts (p-value = 0.0036). Based on the Independent Data Monitoring Committee recommendation, the Company stopped the trial to further accrual in the KMT2Ar cohorts. Syndax has initiated the NDA submission for revumenib for the treatment of R/R KMT2Ar acute leukemia in adult and pediatric patients under the FDA's Real-time Oncology Review (RTOR) program and expects to complete the NDA submission by year-end 2023.
Syndax Pharmaceuticals is a clinical stage biopharmaceutical company developing an innovative pipeline of cancer therapies. Highlights of the Company's pipeline include revumenib, a highly selective inhibitor of the menin–KMT2A binding interaction, and axatilimab, a monoclonal antibody that blocks the colony stimulating factor 1 (CSF-1) receptor.
