BURLINGAME, Calif., Feb. 01, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Corvus Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NASDAQ:CRVS), a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company focused on the development and commercialization of precisely targeted oncology therapies with biomarker patient enrichment selection, announced updated results from its Phase 1/1b clinical trial of CPI-818, the Company's ITK-inhibitor, which were presented today in an oral presentation at the 12th Annual T-Cell Lymphoma Forum in La Jolla, California, taking place January 30 to February 1, 2020.
“Our Phase 1/1b clinical trial of CPI-818, our selective covalent ITK inhibitor designed to address T-cell lymphomas, is enrolling well and continues to provide promising clinical data for patients with advanced, refractory forms of this cancer,” said Mehrdad Mobasher, M.D., chief medical officer of Corvus. “To-date, the data demonstrates that the biology and pharmacology of ITK inhibition with CPI-818 has been as expected and the trial is proceeding according to plan. We are pleased to provide this update at the T-Cell Lymphoma Forum, a meeting dedicated to this difficult to treat family of cancers. We are now ready to advance the trial to higher drug doses where we will evaluate its activity in specific disease cohorts.”
The CPI-818 Phase 1/1b study is currently enrolling patients with several types of advanced, refractory T-cell lymphomas, including peripheral T-cell lymphoma-not otherwise specified (PTCL-NOS), angioimmunoblastic T-cell lymphoma (AITL), cutaneous T-cell lymphoma (CTCL) and other T-cell lymphomas. The study employs an adaptive, expansion cohort design to select the dose and evaluate the safety, pharmacokinetics (PK), target occupancy, biomarkers and efficacy of CPI-818. The initial phase of the trial is evaluating escalating doses in successive cohorts of patients in order to determine the optimum dose. A second phase will evaluate safety and tumor response to this optimum dose of CPI-818 in disease-specific patient cohorts that may be expanded based on early signs of efficacy. The study is enrolling patients at major medical centers in the United States, Australia and South Korea.
