CAMBRIDGE, Mass., Jan. 5, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Blueprint Medicines Corporation (NASDAQ: BPMC) today outlined upcoming portfolio milestones advancing the company's 2027 Blueprint to achieve Precision at Scale, a five-year growth strategy to reach broad patient populations by leveraging its scientific leadership, proven development capability and integrated business infrastructure.

Kate Haviland, Chief Executive Officer of Blueprint Medicines, said:

"Entering 2023, Blueprint Medicines is poised to achieve significant growth and value creation for patients and shareholders, leveraging our strong enterprise capabilities and infrastructure.

In the coming year, we plan to scale the impact of AYVAKIT by addressing the medical needs of a substantially larger group of patients with an anticipated label expansion in indolent systemic mastocytosis, where AYVAKIT has the potential to be a disease modifying therapy and a major treatment advance. Our experienced team, who is in the field bringing AYVAKIT to patients with advanced systemic mastocytosis, is ready to expand our efforts upon FDA approval.

In addition, the data we plan to generate this year will start to truly characterize the potential of our clinical-stage pipeline to solve complex medical problems in EGFR-mutant lung cancer and CDK2-vulnerable breast cancer, which both represent large established commercial opportunities.

This diverse set of growth drivers, together with our existing commercial portfolio and proven discovery platform, put us squarely on the path to achieve our vision for doubling our impact between now and 2027."

The company's key strategies and upcoming goals are to:

1. Launch AYVAKIT in indolent systemic mastocytosis (SM), improving treatment options for patients across the spectrum of the disease and expanding the company's leadership position in SM.

  • Present registrational PIONEER trial data for AYVAKIT in indolent SM at the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology Annual Meeting in February 2023
  • Achieve European Medicines Agency validation of a type II variation marketing authorization application for AYVAKYT for indolent SM in the first half of 2023
  • Achieve approval from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and initiate the launch of AYVAKIT in indolent SM in the U.S. in the middle of 2023
  • Present HARBOR Part 1 trial data for elenestinib (BLU-263) in indolent SM in the second half of 2023

2. Advance a robust portfolio of innovative clinical programs, addressing broader patient populations, towards registration.
