    Good to see continued interest to selumetinib from AZN. It is a large 300-patient study.

      From the array website, not surprising Astra is looking at other indications given earlier results:

      Development Status:

      There are 45 on-going trials with selumetinib, including trials in non-small cell lung cancer, or NSCLC, thyroid cancer, melanoma, ocular melanoma, hepatocellular cancer, colorectal cancer, pancreatic cancer and breast cancer. AstraZeneca began a pivotal trial called ASTRA with selumetinib in thyroid cancer in May 2013 and expects to begin a Phase 3 trial in non-small cell lung cancer in 2013. Recent presentations of significant data for selumetinib are summarized below.

      Phase 2 trial in patients with uveal melanoma – Promising data on selumetinib in an ongoing Phase 2 trial of patients with uveal melanoma were presented at the 2013 ASCO Annual Meeting. At the meeting, Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center presented data on selumetinib that showed it to be the first targeted therapy to demonstrate significant clinical benefit of more than doubling of progression-free survival for patients with metastatic uveal melanoma. These results suggest that selumetinib has the potential as a new standard of care for patients with very few treatment options. Survival for these patients with advanced disease has held steady at only nine months to a year for decades.

      Doubling overall survival, and standard of care could be great news for arry once approved.
