Loxo Oncology at Lilly Announces Details of Presentations at 2021 AACR-NCI-EORTC Virtual International Conference on Molecular Targets and Cancer Therapeutics

October 7, 2021

INDIANAPOLIS, Oct. 7, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Loxo Oncology at Lilly, a research and development group of Eli Lilly and Company (NYSE: LLY), today announced that preclinical characterization data for two new agents, LOXO-783 and LOXO-435, will be presented at the 2021 AACR-NCI-EORTC Virtual International Conference on Molecular Targets and Cancer Therapeutics, held October 7-10, 2021. The data will be presented as part of the plenary session titled "New Drugs on the Horizon II" as well as in individual poster presentations.

LOXO-783 is a potent, highly mutant-selective and brain-penetrant allosteric PI3Kα H1047R inhibitor that is designed to spare wild-type PI3Kα, other PI3K isoforms, and other kinases. LOXO-435 is a potent and highly isoform-selective FGFR3 inhibitor with preserved activity against FGFR3 gatekeeper resistance mutations. Investigational new drug applications (INDs) are planned for both programs in 2022.

"LOXO-783 and LOXO-435 each represent years of diligent work by our discovery teams to build molecules that meet exacting target product profiles. In the case of both PI3Kα H1047R-mutated cancers and FGFR3-mutated cancers, patients deserve medicines purpose-built to their disease biology and we believe that these molecules have the potential to markedly improve on the efficacy and tolerability of existing agents," said Jacob Van Naarden, chief executive officer of Loxo Oncology at Lilly and President of Lilly Oncology. "We look forward to filing INDs for both programs in 2022 and subsequently moving into the clinic."
