Abbisko Therapeutic announces the clinical trial approval granted by U.S. FDA for its next-generation FGFR inhibitor ABSK121
1 November, 2022, Shanghai—Abbisko Therapeutics Co., Ltd. (“Abbisko” hereafter) today announced that ABSK121, a next-generation small molecule FGFR inhibitor overcoming FGFR resistance mutations, has obtained clinical trial approval from the Food and Drug Administration of the USA (FDA), and will soon launch the Phase I clinical trial for the treatment of patients with advanced solid tumors.
ABSK121 is a small molecule FGFR inhibitor that has been discovered and developed by Abbisko to address both primary FGFR2 and FGFR3 oncogenic alterations and those predicted to drive acquired resistance to current FGFR-targeted therapies, including gatekeeper, molecular brake, and activation loop mutations observed in cholangio, bladder and other cancers. In preclinical studies, ABSK121 demonstrated superior potency and broadest coverage across a wide range of clinically relevant mutations that drive primary disease and acquired resistance.
