"We believe the results for XL184 are remarkable and strongly support our plan to initiate a pivotal trial this summer in patients with MTC. Based on these data, we believe that XL184 is in a strong position to become the best-in-class therapy in MTC," said Michael M. Morrissey, PhD, President of Research and Development at Exelixis. "Given the potent activity of XL184 against MET, RET, and VEGFR2, and the observed long-lasting disease stabilization in a variety of tumor types in this phase 1 trial, we will continue to explore the compound's utility as a single agent, or in combination with other therapies, in tumor types like lung cancer, glioblastoma, and potentially many others."
