-- Company to host virtual investor event to review updated data on May 25, 2023 at 5:30pm ET --
CAMBRIDGE, Mass., April 26, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Theseus Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NASDAQ: THRX) (Theseus or the Company), a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company focused on improving the lives of cancer patients through the discovery, development, and commercialization of transformative targeted therapies, today announced that initial dose escalation data from the ongoing phase 1/2 study of THE-630 in advanced gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GIST) were accepted for online publication at the 2023 American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) Annual Meeting, taking place June 2-6, in Chicago, Illinois.
The abstract selected for online publication was submitted on February 14, 2023. On May 25, 2023, Theseus plans to host a virtual investor event to present data with an updated cutoff date. The data to be presented from the ongoing dose escalation study are expected to include preliminary safety, pharmacokinetic (PK), and clinical activity data through cohort 6, as well as an analysis of circulating tumor DNA (ctDNA) data through cohort 5.
THE-630 is a pan-variant tyrosine kinase inhibitor (TKI) of the receptor tyrosine kinase KIT, designed for patients with GIST that have developed resistance to earlier lines of therapy. The primary objectives of the phase 1 dose escalation portion of the study are to evaluate the safety profile of THE-630, including the determination of a recommended phase 2 dose (RP2D) in GIST patients who have received imatinib and at least one other TKI. Secondary objectives include determining the PK profile of THE-630, and to characterize preliminary evidence of antitumor activity.
Virtual Investor Event
Theseus will host a virtual investor event to review these new data on Thursday, May 25, 2023, beginning at 5:30pm ET. The event will be webcast live and can be accessed in the Events section of the Company's investor relations website at ir.theseusrx.com. A replay of the webcast will be archived and available for 30 days following the event.
