ASLAN Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ:ASLN) (TPEx:6497), a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company targeting cancers that are both highly prevalent in Asia and orphan indications in the United States and Europe, announced the completion of recruitment of 52 patients for the phase 2 part of its global phase 2/3 study investigating varlitinib as first line therapy in HER1/HER2 co-expressing advanced or metastatic gastric cancer patients.

As quoted in the press release:

Varlitinib is a potent, reversible, small molecule pan-HER inhibitor and is currently being developed by ASLAN across multiple indications including a global pivotal trial in biliary tract cancer.

Initiated in 2017, the global phase 2/3 study is a double blind, randomised two-arm study that aims to determine the efficacy of varlitinib in combination with mFOLFOX6 (a combination chemotherapy regimen) in comparison to mFOLFOX6 alone in the first line setting. Topline data for the phase 2 study is expected in Q4 2018.
