Berg Launches First-Ever Stratified Medicine Clinical Trial To Investigate Cancer Metabolism Of Solid Tumors
Date:11/21/2013

FRAMINGHAM, Mass., Nov. 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Berg, a biopharmaceutical company committed to uncovering health solutions through a data-driven, biological research approach, today announced  a first-of-its-kind Phase Ib clinical trial with Weill Cornell Medical College, Palo Alto Medical Foundation, and MD Anderson Cancer Center to study its investigational compound, BPM 31510 (IV Continuous Infusion), as a new cancer therapy for solid tumors.

"Unlike other clinical trials, this is the first program to focus on the metabolism, or processes, of cancer rather than a specific mutation or target," said Niven R. Narain, Co-Founder, President and CTO of Berg. "By using big data analytics, we're also able to identify the right type of patients who will respond to the BPM 31510 treatment. Stratifying patients by phenotype is the future of medicine and we want to boldly develop a cancer treatment using this approach"

Peter Yu, MD, Director of Cancer Research at Palo Alto Medical Foundation and incoming president of The American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO), will serve as a primary investigator on this trial together with Ralph Zinner, MD at MD Anderson and lead PI, Manish Shah, MD at Weill Cornell Medical College, which is expected to enroll between 300 - 400 oncology patients affected by solid tumors, including those with highly aggressive cancers like pancreatic, triple-negative breast, liver or brain.

BPM 31510 targets the cellular machinery that governs metabolism of cancer cells to alter those cells to behave like normal, healthy cells. The treatment is the first in Berg's pipeline endogenously occurring candidates discovered and developed by the Berg Interrogative BiologyTM platform, an artificial intelligence-based system that uses
