Schrödinger to Present New Data for SGR-1505 and SGR-2921 at American Society of Hematology 2023 Annual Meeting


NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Schrödinger (Nasdaq: SDGR), whose physics-based computational platform is transforming the way therapeutics and materials are discovered, today announced that new data on SGR-1505, its investigational MALT1 inhibitor, and SGR-2921, its investigational CDC7 inhibitor, will be presented during a poster session at the American Society of Hematology (ASH) 65th Annual Meeting taking place virtually and in San Diego, California, December 9-12, 2023.

Presentation of SGR-1505 data will include further characterization in preclinical oncology models as well as preliminary clinical biomarker information from the Phase 1 study in healthy subjects, which is nearing completion. The data support continued development of SGR-1505 as a potential therapy for patients with advanced B-cell malignancies, and a Phase 1 dose-escalation study in this patient population is ongoing.

Additionally, data will be presented for SGR-2921 demonstrating strong anti-leukemic activity in preclinical models of acute myeloid leukemia (AML) representing difficult-to-treat disease. CDC7 is a cell cycle kinase in the DNA damage-response pathway and has emerged as a promising therapeutic target in oncology, including for the treatment of AML. Schrödinger recently initiated a Phase 1 dose-escalation study of SGR-2921 designed to evaluate the safety, pharmacokinetics, pharmacodynamics, and recommended dose of SGR-2921 in patients with AML or myelodysplastic syndrome.

Details of the data presentations are as follows:

Title: SGR-1505 Is a Potent MALT1 Protease Inhibitor with a Potential Best-in-Class Profile

Date & time: Saturday, December 9, 5:30 P.M. - 7:30 P.M. PDT
Location: San Diego Convention Center, Halls G-H

Schrödinger will review these data as part of its Pipeline Day, taking place virtually and in person on December 14, 2023. The company’s Pipeline Day will be a hybrid event, with limited in-person attendance available to members of the investment community, and a simultaneous webcast will be available for individual investors and other interested parties who wish to join virtually. The live presentation can be accessed in the “Investors” section of Schrödinger’s website and will be archived for approximately 90 days. To participate in the live webcast, please register for the event here. It is recommended that participants register at least 15 minutes in advance of the event.
