Aragon Pharmaceuticals, Inc. Announces First Patient Dosed in Phase I Study of ARN-810 in Estrogen Receptor Positive Breast Cancer
Apr 4 13
Aragon Pharmaceuticals, Inc. announced that the first patient has been dosed in a Phase I clinical study of ARN-810, an oral selective estrogen receptor degrader (SERD), for the treatment of locally advanced or metastatic estrogen receptor positive breast cancer in post-menopausal women. Approximately 70% of breast cancers are dependent on estrogen for growth and survival. Current treatment generally involves antihormonal therapies, such as tamoxifen or aromatase inhibitors. Although these therapies are initially effective, acquired resistance is common, leading to disease progression. ARN-810 is a potent, orally bioavailable nonsteroidal agent, which functions by binding to the estrogen receptor, inducing a conformational change resulting in the degradation of the receptor. As such, its novel profile represents a new treatment that may circumvent resistance seen in traditional therapies. The Phase 1 dose escalation study is designed to assess safety and tolerability of ARN-810. The study will be conducted at Vanderbilt University, Mass General Hospital and Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center.
