San Diego, CA (PRWEB) December 01, 2016 -- ACEA Biosciences, Inc. announced today that it will be presenting updated efficacy and safety data from its Phase I/II clinical trials for AC0010 at the World Conference on Lung Cancer 2016, taking place in Vienna, Austria December 3rd-8th.
“We look forward to providing an update on the phase I/II clinical trials for AC0010 in patients with advanced non-small cell lung cancer harboring the EGFR T790M resistance mutation,” said Dr. Xiao Xu, President and CEO of ACEA. “These interim data demonstrate the promising clinical activity and tolerability profile of AC0010 in the treatment of NSCLC. The availability of alternative treatment options like AC0010 will provide patients and physicians with flexibility as they tailor treatment regimens based on efficacy and tolerability.”
Abstract 5117 - Phase I/II Study of AC0010, MutantSelective EGFR Inhibitor, in NonSmall Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC) Patients with EGFR T790M Mutation. Presented by: Dr. Yi-Long Wu, MD, Guangdong Lung Cancer Institute, Guangdong General Hospital (GGH), and Guangdong Academy of Medical Sciences, Guangzhou/China.

AC0010 is an orally available, irreversible small molecule tyrosine kinase inhibitor in development for the treatment of EGFR active and T790M mutations in NSCLC patients. In preclinical studies AC0010 has been found to selectively inhibit EGFR active (Exon 19 del, L858R) and T790M mutations up to 298-fold more efficiently than wild-type EGFR. Multiple clinical trials are currently underway in China and in the USA to demonstrate the clinical utility of AC0010 in NSCLC patients who have developed the EGFR 790M mutation. AC0010 is also being developed as a first-line therapy for treatment of the EGFR activating mutations Exon 19 del and L858R. ACEA holds worldwide rights for AC0010.
