Abbisko Therapeutics Declared Two Next-Generation Precision Oncology Preclinical Candidates and Will Present Multiple Discovery and Translational Research Results at AACR Annual Meeting 2022
March 11, 2022, Shanghai – Abbisko Therapeutics Co., Ltd. (“Abbisko” hereafter) today announced that it had declared two next-generation precision oncology drug candidates. Both candidates were independently discovered from the Abbisko proprietary small molecule discovery platform and have entered the IND-enabling stage.
PCC nomination for ABSK112, a next-generation EGFR-exon20 inhibitor with significantly improved selectivity and brain penetrating ability, for EGFR-driven lung cancer.
PCC nomination for ABSK071, a next-generation KRas-G12C inhibitor with significantly improved potency and drug-like properties, for multiple types of cancer driven by KRas-G12C.
In addition, Abbisko will present several latest preclinical and translational research results at the American Association of Cancer Research (AACR) Annual Meeting 2022 in New Orleans, United States, from April 8 to 13. The presented data will highlight our clinical programs of ABSK021, ABSK043, and preclinical program of ABSK111:
