NEW CLINICAL TRIAL AVAILABLE FOR MYELOFIBROSIS PATIENTS
Actuate Therapeutics Inc. is recruiting patients for Actuate 1901: 9-ING-41, a phase 2 study that will study its efficacy in patients with advanced MF.
Official Title: Phase 2 Study of 9-ING-41, a Glycogen Synthase Kinase 3 Beta (GSK 3β) Inhibitor, as a Single Agent or Combined With Ruxolitinib, in Patients With Myelofibrosis
Detailed Description: 9-ING-41 is a first-in-class, intravenously administered, maleimide-based, small molecule, potent selective GSK-3β inhibitor with significant pre-clinical and clinical anticancer activity. In the ongoing Actuate 1801 study in a cohort of over 90 patients with advanced refractory malignancies, 9-ING-41 has exhibited no significant toxicity, including no myelosuppression, and significant anti-tumor activity. 9-ING-41 also has a significant pre-clinical ability to reverse pathologic fibrosis in multiple models of pulmonary and pleural fibrosis. Reversal of fibrosis by an anti-fibrotic agent in patients with advanced myelofibrosis (MF) has recently been demonstrated to be of clinical benefit. This Phase 2 study is designed to evaluate the efficacy of 9-ING-41, as a single agent or in combination with Ruxolitinib, in patients with advanced, poor prognosis MF.
