BerGenBio Presents Data at AACR-ISLAC Conference on the Molecular Origins of Lung Cancer

BERGEN, Norway, January 9, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --

 


Highlights BGB324's potential as a novel treatment for NSCLC in patients with acquired drug resistance

BerGenBio AS ("BerGenBio" or the "Company"), an oncology biopharmaceutical company, announces that preclinical data demonstrating that its lead compound, BGB324 has potential application as a novel treatment for non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) was presented in a poster at the American Association of Cancer Research and The International Association for the Study of Lung Cancer's (AACR-ISLAC) joint conference on the Molecular Origins of Lung Cancer, which took place on January 6-9, 2014.[1]

The study was conducted in collaboration with investigators at the University of Bergen and University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas and highlights the potential of BGB324, a first-in-class, highly selective small molecule inhibitor of the Axl receptor tyrosine kinase, as a novel therapeutic option for NSCLC.

The study evaluated the effects of BGB324 on NSCLC cells in in vitro 3D assays and in mouse xenograft models, in combination with targeted chemotherapeutic agents. The results demonstrated that BGB324 can overcome acquired drug resistance in in vivo models of NSCLC and suggests that BGB324 may be effective in treating patients with drug-resistant NSCLC, caused by long-term use of the EGFR inhibitor erlotinib (Roche's Tarceva), the current first line treatment for EGFR mutated NSCLC patients. The results also demonstrated that treatment with BGB324 could enhance the antitumor activities of chemotherapeutic and targeted agents such as docetaxel and bevacizumab (Sanofi's Taxotere and Roche's Avastin) in patients with NSCLC.

BGB324 is the only selective Axl inhibitor in clinical development having recently completed a phase Ia clinical trial. Phase Ib clinical trials are plann
