  • Gain Therapeutics Announces Multi-Target Drug Discovery Collaboration Agreement with Zentalis Pharmaceuticals

    Gain Therapeutics Announces Multi-Target Drug Discovery Collaboration Agreement with Zentalis Pharmaceuticals

    Collaboration to use Gain’s proprietary Site-Directed Enzyme Enhancement Therapy (SEE-Tx™) computational platform technology to identify new and previously difficult-to-drug oncology targets BETHESDA, Md., April 20, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Gain Therapeutics, Inc. (NASDAQ: GANX) (“Gain”) today announced a multi-target collaboration agreement with Zentalis Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ: ZNTL) to discover new product candidates for the treatment of cancer. Gain will use its proprietary SEE-Tx computational platform technology to identify new sites on target proteins for potential use in oncology. SEE-Tx applies a proprietary computational algorithm and supercomputer processing to the published 3D structure of proteins to discover new binding sites with the ability to modulate protein function. The intended output is newly-discovered targets or target protein interactions that can then be drugged for therapeutic benefit to intervene on protein misfolding. “We are pleased to enter into a relationship with Zentalis, an oncology company at the forefront of developing differentiated treatments for patients,” said Eric Richman, Chief Executive Officer at Gain. “Our unique algorithm, based on a patented method to analyze molecular dynamics and powered by supercomputers, is designed to enable discovery of novel targets in various therapeutic areas. Zentalis’ team brings extensive industry experience and a proven track record in the discovery and clinical development of innovative cancer therapies, which will be beneficial as we work to further validate SEE-Tx for use in combating cancers and other devastating diseases. Together, we are looking forward to changing the way the industry thinks about drug discovery in oncology.” Prof. Xavier Barril, Chief Scientific Officer of Gain, added, “Over the past several decades, the evidence linking protein misfolding and cancer has continued to grow, with chaperones that mediate protein folding being identified as critical modulators of proper cellular function. Of particular note, while most proteins have a half-life of one to two hours, many oncogenes have half-lives of just a few minutes, meaning that they are continually being synthesized, folded and degraded, offering significant opportunities for misfolding. We are excited to collaborate with Zentalis with its promising pipeline of oncology therapeutic candidates. Zentalis sees the potential of our SEE-Tx platform technology to address this challenge in cancer.” Under the terms of the agreement, Gain will pursue binding site identification on target proteins that will be selected and agreed upon by both parties. Next, Gain will identify and determine the potential suitability of these sites as drug targets, as well as their prospective therapeutic use. Selected compounds will be tested in the lab by Zentalis against the target protein to confirm binding and action to identify and characterize novel compounds for development. About SEE-Tx™ SEE-Tx is the first proprietary technology platform exclusively designed use the 3D structure of proteins to systematically identify allosteric binding sites never described previously and predict their druggability. Powered by supercomputers, its novel algorithm orchestrates molecular modeling at a speed and efficiency that has the potential to redefine drug discovery. About Gain Therapeutics, Inc.Gain Therapeutics, Inc. is redefining drug discovery with its SEE-Tx™ target identification platform.

  • Zentalis's Early WEE1 Inhibitor Data Shows 'Exceptional' Response In Solid Tumor Study, Plans Combination Trials

    Zentalis's Early WEE1 Inhibitor Data Shows 'Exceptional' Response In Solid Tumor Study, Plans Combination Trials

    Zentalis Pharmaceuticals Inc (NASDAQ: ZNTL) has announced initial efficacy and safety data from the Phase 1 dose-escalation portion of its ongoing Phase 1/2 trial evaluating ZN-c3 in patients with advanced solid tumors who are refractory to or ineligible for standard therapy or for whom no standard therapy is available. Data were presented at the American Association of Cancer Research (AACR) Annual Meeting. Zentalis’ WEE1 inhibitor, ZN-c3, posted partial responses across a slate of tumor types with a tolerable safety profile as monotherapy for solid tumor patients. The drug shrank tumors in two patients: One patient had stage 4 ovarian cancer and had tried 18 lines of treatment, while the other patient had stage 4 colorectal cancer and had undergone five prior lines of treatment. The ovarian cancer patient saw targeted tumors shrink by about 56%. Four weeks into treatment, it saw a “large rapid drop” in blood levels of CA-125, an antigen used to monitor certain cancers. As for the colorectal cancer patient, tumors shrank by 42%, and the patient remained on treatment for about six months before the disease progressed. Three other patients had their tumors shrink, too—including one with Stage IV non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) and two with uterine serous carcinoma. The NSCLC patient had received three prior lines of therapy and, after ZN-c3 treatment, achieved an unconfirmed partial response with a 50% reduction in overall target lesions. On the safety front, side effects were mostly mild to moderate, with nausea affecting about half of the 55 patients evaluated for safety, diarrhea, fatigue, and vomiting, afflicting less than one-third of them. Blood-related side effects struck less than 10% of patients: 1.8% of patients suffered a low white blood cell count, 7.2% of patients had a low platelet count, and 7.2% of patients developed anemia. The company initiated the Phase 1 expansion portion of the trial with the 300 mg dose earlier in 2021 and is exploring ZN-c3’s potential in combination trials, including in ovarian cancer and osteosarcoma. Separately, the company has collaborated with GlaxoSmithKline plc (NYSE: GSK) to evaluate the combination of ZN-c3 and Zejula (niraparib) in patients with advanced epithelial ovarian cancer. Under the terms of the non-exclusive collaboration, Zentalis is responsible for conducting the study with GSK supplying niraparib. Zentalis maintains full ownership of ZN-c3. The company will host a webcast event with key opinion leaders today at 4:00 p.m. ET. Price Action: ZNTL shares are up 7.53% at $40.22 on the last check Monday.

  • Zentalis Pharmaceuticals Enters into Clinical Collaboration and Supply Agreement with GlaxoSmithKline to Evaluate its Oral WEE1 Inhibitor, ZN-c3, in Combination with Niraparib, a PARP Inhibitor

    Zentalis Pharmaceuticals Enters into Clinical Collaboration and Supply Agreement with GlaxoSmithKline to Evaluate its Oral WEE1 Inhibitor, ZN-c3, in Combination with Niraparib, a PARP Inhibitor

    ZN-c3 is currently being evaluated in patients with advanced solid tumors and ovarian cancerNEW YORK and SAN DIEGO, April 12, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Zentalis Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (Nasdaq: ZNTL), a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company focused on discovering and developing small molecule therapeutics targeting fundamental biological pathways of cancers, today announced a clinical collaboration agreement with GlaxoSmithKline (“GSK”) in which Zentalis will evaluate the combination of ZN-c3, Zentalis’ oral WEE1 inhibitor product candidate, and ZEJULA (niraparib), GSK’s poly (ADP-ribose) polymerase (PARP) inhibitor, in patients with advanced epithelial ovarian cancer. Zentalis is currently conducting clinical studies with ZN-c3 both as a monotherapy and in combination with certain standard of care therapies. “This clinical collaboration and supply agreement with GSK allows us to investigate the broader potential of our WEE1 inhibitor when used as part of a combination treatment with niraparib, a PARP inhibitor,” commented Dr. Anthony Sun, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Zentalis Pharmaceuticals. “As demonstrated in our preclinical studies, ZN-c3 is designed to have significant advantages over other investigational WEE1 inhibitor therapies. We believe this combination has the potential to meaningfully improve the outcomes for patients with ovarian cancer.” PARP inhibitors prevent DNA damage repair in cancer cells. Similar to PARP, WEE1 plays a role in cellular regulation and repair, allowing cells with DNA damage to repair and survive. Inhibition of WEE1 causes dysregulation of DNA replication and subsequently induces apoptosis. Based on these complementary mechanisms of action, the use of WEE1 and PARP inhibitors could potentially have synergistic anti-tumor activity. More than 300,000 women worldwide are diagnosed with ovarian cancer each year, leading to over 180,000 fatalities1. While substantial progress has been made in the treatment of this disease, there is an urgency to address the remaining unmet need through the development of innovative combination treatments. Under the terms of the non-exclusive collaboration, Zentalis is responsible for conducting the study with GSK providing all required doses of niraparib. Zentalis maintains full ownership of ZN-c3. 1www.cancerresearch.org About ZN-c3 ZN-c3 is an oral inhibitor of WEE1 in development for the treatment of advanced solid tumors. The inhibition of WEE1, a DNA damage response protein, aims to generate sufficient DNA damage in cancer cells, causing cell death, thereby preventing tumor growth and potentially causing tumor regression. Zentalis is currently conducting a Phase 1/2 clinical trial in patients with advanced solid tumors and reported initial data from the Phase 1 portion at the AACR Annual Meeting 2021. In addition, the Company is also conducting a Phase 1b trial evaluating ZN-c3 in combination with chemotherapy in patients with advanced ovarian cancer, with plans to initiate a Phase 1/2 trial in combination with GSK’s niraparib in patients with advanced ovarian cancer, a Phase 1/2 trial in combination with chemotherapy in osteosarcoma and a Phase 2 trial investigating ZN-c3 as a monotherapy in patients with uterine serous carcinoma in 2021. About ZEJULA (niraparib) GSK’s ZEJULA (niraparib) is an FDA and EMA-approved oral, once-daily poly (ADP-ribose) polymerase inhibitor that is currently being evaluated in multiple pivotal trials. GSK is building a robust niraparib clinical development programme by assessing activity across multiple tumour types and by evaluating several potential combinations of niraparib with other therapeutics. The ongoing development programme for niraparib includes several combination studies, including Phase III studies in ovarian and non-ovarian indications.
