PCNSL is a very rare and aggressive form of lymphoma involving brain and its linings, eyes or spinal cord. The designation provides the company several benefits and incentives, including assistance with clinical study design and drug development, tax credits for qualified clinical trials costs, exemptions from certain FDA application fees, as well as a seven-year period of market exclusivity upon regulatory product approval.
Unlike most of its competitors, PQR crosses the blood-brain barrier, expanding its use to malignant diseases involving the brain. Preclinical and Phase 1 studies have shown PQR to have a favorable safety, tolerability and pharmacokinetic profile.
In addition, PQR has shown both preclinical activity in various tumor models and clinical activity in Phase 1 and 2 studies. A significant number of HER2-negative breast cancer patients are expected to have activated PI3K, de novo or induced by prior chemotherapy administration. PQR is currently engaged in multiple Phase 1 and Phase 2 studies as a single agent and has shown promising activity. The initial Phase 1 dose-escalation part of the study will assess the safety and tolerability of PQR combined with eribulin in patients with locally advanced or metastatic HER2-negative and triple-negative breast cancer.
The primary objective of this part of the study is to evaluate the efficacy of the PQR in combination with eribulin. Eribulin is the first in the halichondrin class, microtubule dynamics inhibitors with a novel mechanism of action. Structurally eribulin is a simplified and synthetically produced version of halichondrin B, a natural product isolated from the marine sponge Halichondria okadai.
Eribulin is believed to work by inhibiting the growth phase of microtubule dynamics which prevents cell division. Eribulin remains the only single agent chemotherapy to significantly improve overall survival in women with advanced breast cancer after anthracycline and taxane treatment.
Eisai is committed to oncology to address the unmet medical needs of patients and their families. To read the full press release, please visit the ESMO website.
