Mirati To Encore Compelling Clinical Data Demonstrating Adagrasib's Potential as a Targeted Treatment for KRASG12C-Mutated Advanced Solid Tumors at 2023 ASCO Annual Meeting


Data follows recent inclusion of Adagrasib in NCCN Guidelines for PDAC and CNS Cancers

Additional Company Presentations Highlight Real-World Observations in Patients Living with Metastatic NSCLC and KRASG12C Mutated NSCLC

SAN DIEGO, May 30, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Mirati Therapeutics, Inc.®  (NASDAQ: MRTX), a commercial stage biotechnology company, today announced presentations and posters to be shared at the 2023 American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) Annual Meeting demonstrating the utility of adagrasib across multiple tumor types.

The company will present encore data indicating adagrasib, a potent and selective KRASG12C inhibitor, is well tolerated and demonstrates meaningful clinical activity in patients with previously treated pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC), biliary tract cancer (BTC), and other solid tumors harboring a KRASG12C mutation. Phase 2 data from the KRYSTAL-1 study demonstrates the potential value of adagrasib monotherapy for patients with unresectable or metastatic KRASG12C-mutated solid tumors beyond non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) and colorectal cancer (CRC).

Data was previously shared at the April ASCO Plenary Series and published in the Journal of Clinical Oncology as a Rapid Communication, reserved for publications deemed to provide timely and late breaking research that may have an immediate impact on patient care.

This encore presentation follows the recent inclusion of adagrasib in the National Comprehensive Center Network (NCCN) Guidelines for both PDAC and Central Nervous System (CNS) Cancers for patients living with previously treated KRASG12C-mutant PDAC and non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) with CNS metastases, respectively.

In addition, the company announced that it will present two posters which highlight real-world observations in patients living with metastatic NSCLC (mNSCLC). Full presentation details of all three presentations are below:

  • KRYSTAL-1: Activity and Safety of Adagrasib (MRTX849) in Patients with Advanced Solid Tumors Harboring a KRASG12C Mutation: Saturday, June 3, 2023 at 10:30-11:45 p.m. PT / 12:30-1:45 PM CT (Abstract #425082) during the ASCO Plenary Series: Rapid Abstract Updates Education Session. Full abstract can be found here.
  • Real-world study of treatment patterns and clinical outcomes in patients with mNSCLC post-approval of immunotherapy in the community oncology setting: Saturday, June 3, 2023 at 11:15 a.m.2:15 p.m. PT / 2:15-5:15 p.m. ET (Abstract 6629) during the Developmental Therapeutics – Molecularly Targeted Agents and Tumor Biology Poster Session. Full abstract can be found here.
  • Real-world outcomes of the first-line immune checkpoint inhibitors with or without chemotherapy in KRAS G12C altered NSCLC according to PD-L1 status: Sunday, June 4, 2023 at 6:00 a.m. PT / 9:00 a.m. ET12:00 p.m. (Abstract 9136) during the Lung Cancer – Non-Small Cell Metastatic Poster Session. Full abstract can be found here.

"We're pleased to be back at the 2023 ASCO Annual Meeting to share meaningful clinical results demonstrating the efficacy of adagrasib in a range of tumor types beyond NSCLC and CRC, indicating a potential path to regulatory approval for adagrasib in additional indications," shared Alan Sandler, M.D., chief medical officer, Mirati Therapeutics, Inc. "We are also eager to share the results of our real-world studies to demonstrate the continued unmet need within first-line NSCLC which continues to be an area of active study for adagrasib in combination with pembrolizumab with and without chemotherapy."
