Mirati Therapeutics to Present New Research at the 2022 ASCO Annual Meeting Showcasing Clinical Advances of Treating KRASG12C-Mutated Lung Cancer with Investigational Adagrasib
SAN DIEGO, April 27, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Mirati Therapeutics, Inc. (Nasdaq: MRTX), a clinical-stage targeted oncology company today announced the presentation of new clinical research showcasing the potential of its investigational KRASG12C inhibitor, adagrasib, in a study of patients with KRASG12C-mutated non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) at the 2022 American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) Annual Meeting taking place June 3 to 7, 2022 in Chicago, IL.
"Mirati continues to develop adagrasib with the goal of having a meaningful impact on patients with lung cancer," said Charles Baum, M.D., Ph.D., president, founder and head of research and development, Mirati Therapeutics, Inc. "Our data at this year's ASCO congress includes important insights into adagrasib's clinical profile in patients with NSCLC who harbor a KRASG12C mutation, including those with active and untreated CNS metastases, which is a serious and potentially fatal complication for these patients. We believe adagrasib has the potential to transform the lives of those with KRAS-mutated cancers including lung, colorectal, pancreatic and other tumors that carry the KRASG12C mutation."
The adagrasib New Drug Application (NDA) is currently being reviewed by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for Accelerated Approval (Subpart H) as a treatment for patients with NSCLC harboring the KRASG12C mutation who have received at least one prior systemic therapy. The application is being reviewed under the FDA Real Time Oncology Review (RTOR) pilot program, which aims to explore a more efficient review process that ensures safe and effective treatments are made available to patients as early as possible. Adagrasib has also achieved Breakthrough Therapy Designation in the U.S. as a potential treatment for patients with NSCLC harboring the KRASG12C mutation who have received at least one prior systemic therapy.
Mirati presentations at the 2022 ASCO Annual Meeting include:
Presentation Title: KRYSTAL-1: Activity and Safety of Adagrasib (MRTX849) in Patients with Advanced/Metastatic Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC) Harboring a KRASG12C Mutation
Presentation Title: Activity of Adagrasib (MRTX849) in Patients with KRASG12C-Mutated NSCLC and Active, Untreated CNS Metastases in the KRYSTAL-1 Trial

About Adagrasib (MRTX849)
Adagrasib is an investigational, highly selective, and potent oral small-molecule inhibitor of KRASG12C that is optimized to sustain target inhibition, an attribute that could be important to treat KRASG12C-mutated cancers, as the KRASG12C protein regenerates every 24-48 hours. Adagrasib is a being evaluated as monotherapy and in combination with other anti-cancer therapies in patients with advanced KRASG12C-mutated solid tumors, including non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), colorectal cancer and pancreatic cancer.
