Revolution Medicines Launches Clinical Journey for Groundbreaking Cancer Treatment: First Patient Dosed in Trial of RMC-9805, a Game-Changing KRASG12D(ON) Inhibitor
REDWOOD CITY, Calif., Sept. 19, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Revolution Medicines, Inc. (Nasdaq: RVMD), a trailblazing oncology company on a mission to combat RAS-addicted cancers, proudly announces a significant leap forward: the administration of RMC-9805, a potent oral KRASG12D(ON) Inhibitor, to its inaugural patient. This groundbreaking treatment is designed to combat cancers driven by the formidable KRASG12D mutation, which plagues a staggering 55,000 new patients in the U.S. each year. This mutation is particularly prevalent in pancreatic cancer, non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), and colorectal cancer.
The Phase 1/1b trial (NCT06040541) unfolds as a multifaceted endeavor, spanning multiple centers. It operates under an open-label framework, delving into dose escalation and expansion for RMC-9805 across patients grappling with advanced solid tumors housing the KRASG12D mutation. The study’s key objectives encompass an exhaustive assessment of safety and tolerability while charting the course towards establishing the ideal Phase 2 dose and regimen for this revolutionary compound.
Dr. Mark A. Goldsmith, the visionary CEO and Chairman of Revolution Medicines, celebrates this momentous milestone, stating, “The initiation of patient dosing with RMC-9805 marks a major milestone for Revolution Medicines as its third oral RAS(ON) Inhibitor to begin clinical evaluation.
We are now sudying in the clinic three highly innovative RAS(ON) Inhibitors derived from our pioneering tri-complex inhibitor platform that we believe have complementary profiles – RMC-6236 (RASMULTI) for patients with cancers caused by a wide range of RAS mutations, and the mutant-selective compounds RMC-6291 (KRASG12C) and RMC-9805 (KRASG12D) for patients with cancers harboring selected mutations.
With this strong clinical portfolio, as well as a rich collection of additional mutant-selective drug candidates and research-stage assets, we believe our pipeline has the potential to change the standard of care for patients living with a wide range of RAS-addicted cancers including NSCLC, pancreatic cancers and colorectal cancers.”
