Agios Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ:AGIO), a leader in the field of cellular metabolism to treat cancer and rare genetic diseases, today presented updated data from the ongoing Phase 1 study evaluating single agent AG-881 in advanced glioma.

As quoted in the press release:

The data were featured in an oral presentation at the Society for Neuro-Oncology (SNO) Annual Meeting in New Orleans. AG-881 is an investigational, oral, selective, potent inhibitor of the mutant isocitrate dehydrogenase-1 (IDH1) and IDH2 enzymes and was designed for enhanced brain penetrance for development in IDH-mutant glioma.

“With additional follow-up, the AG-881 Phase 1 dose-escalation data continue to show a favorable safety profile at the doses selected for the perioperative study. Longer treatment duration and a reduction in tumor growth rates are encouraging signs of clinical activity in low-grade glioma,” said Ingo Mellinghoff, M.D., Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, an investigator for the study. “Ultimately, use of an IDH inhibitor in this difficult-to-treat disease has the potential to improve the current treatment paradigm by delaying the multiple rounds of surgery, radiation and chemotherapy that many patients endure.”
