Repare Therapeutics Presents Preliminary Phase 1 Monotherapy Clinical Data from the Ongoing First-in-Human Phase 1/2 TRESR Study of RP-3500 in Solid Tumors at AACR-NCI-EORTC International Conference on Molecular Targets and Cancer Therapeutics
8 October 2021 - - Canadian precision oncology company Repare Therapeutics Inc. (NASDAQ: RPTX) has presented preliminary Phase 1 monotherapy clinical data from its Phase 1/2 TRESR (Treatment Enabled by SNIPRx) clinical trial of RP-3500, a potent and selective oral small molecule inhibitor of ATR (Ataxia-Telangiectasia and Rad3-related protein kinase) for the treatment of solid tumors with specific synthetic-lethal genomic alterations including those in the ATM gene (ataxia teleangectasia mutated kinase), at the AACR-NCI-EORTC Virtual International Conference on Molecular Targets and Cancer Therapeutics, the company said.

The data were featured at the AACR-NCI-EORTC conference in an oral presentation titled, "First-in-Human biomarker-driven Phase I TRESR trial of ATR inhibitor RP-3500 in patients with advanced solid tumors harboring synthetic lethal genomic alterations" (Abstract number 4950). Preliminary data show that monotherapy RP-3500 is safe and well tolerated, with compelling early efficacy signals across multiple genotypes and tumor types in heavily pretreated patients.

The company will subsequently host a virtual webcast event TODAY, October 8th at 5:00 p.m. eastern time to discuss the latest results from the TRESR trial.

TRESR is a first-in-human, multi-center, open-label Phase 1/2 dose-escalation and expansion study, designed to establish the recommended Phase 2 dose and schedule, evaluate safety and pharmacokinetics and identify preliminary anti-tumor activity associated with RP-3500, given alone and in combination with talazoparib.

The study also examined biomarker responses and their relationship with response to RP-3500 treatment.

Data presented in the abstract reflect the monotherapy cohort at data cutoff of June 4, 2021 and include 62 patients, while data presented at the conference reflect a data cutoff of August 15, 2021 and include 101 patients.

Repare's SNIPRx platform is a genome-wide CRISPR-based screening approach that utilizes proprietary isogenic cell lines to identify novel and known synthetic lethal gene pairs and the corresponding patients who are most likely to benefit from the company's therapies based on the genetic profile of their tumors.

Repare's platform enables the development of precision therapeutics in patients whose tumors contain one or more genomic alterations identified by SNIPRx screening, in order to selectively target those tumors in patients most likely to achieve clinical benefit from resulting product candidates.

Repare Therapeutics is a clinical-stage precision oncology company enabled by its proprietary synthetic lethality approach to the discovery and development of novel therapeutics.

The company utilizes its genome-wide, CRISPR-enabled SNIPRx platform to systematically discover and develop highly targeted cancer therapies focused on genomic instability, including DNA damage repair.

The company's pipeline includes its lead product candidate RP-3500, a potential leading ATR inhibitor currently in Phase 1/2 clinical development, its second clinical candidate, RP-6306, a PKMYT1 inhibitor currently in Phase 1 clinical development, a Polθ inhibitor program, as well as eight other early-stage, pre-clinical programs.
