SAN FRANCISCO and SUZHOU, China, June 6, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Innovent Biologics, Inc. ("Innovent") (HKEX: 01801), a world-class biopharmaceutical company that develops, manufactures and commercializes high quality medicines for the treatment of oncology, autoimmune, metabolic, ophthalmology and other major diseases, today presented the preliminary data of IBI351 (GFH925) (KRASG12C inhibitor) from dose escalation portion of a phase I clinical trial (NCT05005234) at the 2022 American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) Annual Meeting.

Phase I dose-escalation study of IBI351 (GFH925) monotherapy in patients with advanced solid tumors

Poster Presentation, Abstract #: 3110

IBI351(GFH925) is a novel, irreversible covalent inhibitor of KRASG12C mutation. The NCT05005234 study presented was a first-in-human study conducted in China to evaluate the safety, tolerability and efficacy of IBI351 monotherapy in patients with advanced solid tumors who failed or intolerant to standard of care treatment. As data cutoff (15 April 2022), 31 subjects were enrolled in the study, including 25 patients with non-small cell lung cancer, 5 colorectal cancer and 1 pancreatic cancer. Approximately 30% patients received 3 lines or above prior systemic anticancer therapy. The highlights of the study results were as follows:

  • Of 21 patients (including 16 non-small cell lung cancer and 5 colorectal cancer) having at least 1 tumor assessment per RECISTv1.1, 9 achieved PR, with investigator assessed ORR 42.9% and DCR 81%.
  • Of 12 patients with NSCLC treated at/above doses of 700mg once daily, 6 achieved PR, with investigator assessed ORR 50% and DCR 83.3%.
  • Of 5 CRC patients, 2 achieved PR, with investigator assessed ORR 40% and DCR 60%.
  • As data cutoff, IBI351 was well tolerated. No DLT was reported and MTD was not reached. Treatment-related adverse events (TRAEs) occurred in 93.5% (29/31) patients and the most common TRAEs were anemia, transferase increased, bilirubin increased, vomiting and diarrhea. The majority of the TRAEs were grade 1-2 with 12.9% (4/31) of patients reporting grade 3 TRAEs. There were no grade 4-5 TRAEs or TRAEs led to treatment discontinuation.

Favorable safety and tolerability and promising antitumor activity of IBI351 monotherapy were observed in previously-treated advanced non-small cell lung cancer and colorectal cancer harboring KRASG12C mutation. As data cutoff, dose escalation is still ongoing. More data will be presented at the future medical meeting.

Professor Yi-Long Wu from Guangdong Lung Cancer Institute, Guangdong Provincial People's Hospital, stated: "KRASG12C mutation occurs in about 2~4% of non-small cell lung cancer and 2.5% of colorectal cancer in China, and no KRASG12C inhibitor was approved yet in China. IBI351 is a novel, irreversible covalent inhibitor of KRASG12C mutation. The preliminary data shows the favorable safety and promising activity of IBI351 (GFH925) monotherapy in KRAS G12C mutated advanced solid tumor. We look forward to more positive clinical data from this study. "

Dr. Hui Zhou, Senior Vice President of Innovent, stated: "We are pleased to present our clinical development updates at the 2022 ASCO, and that IBI351 monotherapy demonstrated encouraging efficacy and safety data in phase I dose-escalation study. We are working to advancing into late stage clinical development to explore the potential of IBI351 in monotherapy and combo-therapy. We hope to benefit more cancer patients as we are exploring next-generation immunotherapies."

About IBI351/GFH925 (KRASG12C Inhibitor)

Discovered by GenFleet Therapeutics, GFH925 (Innovent R&D code: IBI351) is a novel, orally active, potent KRASG12C inhibitor designed to effectively target the GTP/GDP exchange, an essential step in pathway activation, by modifying the cysteine residue of KRASG12C protein covalently and irreversibly. Preclinical cysteine selectivity studies demonstrated high selectivity of IBI351 towards G12C. Subsequently, IBI351 effectively inhibits the downstream signal pathway to induce tumor cells' apoptosis and cell cycle arrest. In September 2021, Innovent and GenFleet Therapeutics entered into an exclusive license agreement for the development and commercialization of IBI351 in China (including mainland China, Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan) with additional option-in rights for global development and commercialization.
