Kura Oncology (Nasdaq:KURA) a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company focused on the development of precision medicines for oncology, today reported first quarter 2018 financial results and provided a corporate update.

As quoted in the press release:

“I am very pleased with the progress we made over the past quarter, highlighted by a successful end of Phase 2 meeting with the FDA,” said Troy Wilson, Ph.D., J.D., President and Chief Executive Officer of Kura Oncology. “We are working diligently to initiate AIM-HN, our registration-directed trial of tipifarnib in HRAS mutant HNSCC, as well as SEQ-HN, our concurrent screening and outcomes study. We believe that tipifarnib has the potential to become an important treatment option for patients with HRAS mutant HNSCC, and we are committed to executing the clinical and regulatory strategy that best positions it for success.”

“We are also excited about the potential to expand the clinical utility of tipifarnib to other solid tumor and hematologic indications,” continued Dr. Wilson. “We are evaluating tipifarnib in multiple biomarker-guided Phase 2 clinical trials, and our goal is to generate proof-of-concept data in one or more of these additional indications by year end. We believe we have the cash runway to advance tipifarnib and our emerging pipeline of drug candidates through a series of upcoming potential data catalysts, and we look forward to providing further updates on our progress in the months ahead.”
