Strata Oncology, Inc ., a precision oncology company advancing molecular indications for cancer therapies, today announced the Strata P recision Indications for A pproved Th erapies, or "Strata PATH," trial. Strata PATH is a multi-drug, multi-arm, biomarker-driven clinical trial designed to evaluate the efficacy of FDA-approved targeted- and immunotherapies in new Strata-defined biomarker indications. Pfizer Inc. (NYSE: PFE) will provide marketed, targeted drugs for four study arms at no cost to participants. Additional pharmaceutical companies are expected to participate after the study launch.

The trial will use Strata-defined biomarker profiles from comprehensive DNA and RNA profiling to match patients to one of several different investigational treatment arms. Strata Oncology is leveraging its clinical-molecular database, which includes genomic and transcriptomic data with paired treatment outcomes, to define novel, pan-tumor biomarker hypotheses for existing FDA-approved therapies. Strata PATH will enroll patients with advanced solid tumors who have exhausted standard lines of therapy, are positive for specific biomarker profiles assessed by the StrataNGS test and have not previously been treated with the identified class of therapy.

"The Strata PATH study is another example of our commitment to deliver the best possible treatment for each patient with cancer," said Dan Rhodes , PhD, co-founder and chief executive officer, Strata Oncology. "We are using the latest clinical-molecular insights to devise better biomarker-guided treatment hypotheses, and then partner with biopharma to test those hypotheses in patients. Pfizer is on the forefront of precision medicine, and we are pleased to work with them to translate these insights into prospective studies that may accelerate the availability of treatments for patients with cancer."

"We are excited to be a part of Strata Oncology's innovative trial to identify and test novel biomarker-guided treatment hypotheses," said Chris Boshoff , MD, PhD, Chief Development Officer, Pfizer Oncology. "Using Strata's data-driven approach, the PATH study will provide an opportunity to explore whether it's possible for patients to benefit from precision therapies that are approved in other selected cancer types."

About StrataNGS
StrataNGS is a comprehensive genomic profiling (CGP) test that features the lowest tumor tissue requirements in the industry ( > 2mm 2 surface area). The 429-gene assay is performed on co-isolated RNA and DNA. Single-/multi-nucleotide variants (SNVs), short insertions and deletions (indels), copy number alterations (CNAs; amplifications and deep deletions), microsatellite instability (MSI) status, gene fusions, and tumor mutation burden (TMB) are assessed simultaneously.

U.S. FDA Accepts for Priority Review the Supplemental Biologics License Application for Merck's VAXNEUVANCE for Use in Infants and Children

Merck (NYSE: MRK), known as MSD outside the United States and Canada, today announced the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has accepted for Priority Review a supplemental Biologics License Application (sBLA) for VAXNEUVANCE (Pneumococcal 15-valent Conjugate Vaccine) for the prevention of invasive pneumococcal disease in children 6 weeks through 17 years of age. The FDA grants priority review to medicines and vaccines that, if approved, would provide a significant improvement in the safety or effectiveness of the treatment or prevention of a serious condition. The FDA set a Prescription Drug User Fee Act (PDUFA), or target action date, of April 1, 2022.

"VAXNEUVANCE has the potential to provide meaningful protection against invasive pneumococcal disease for children and infants by targeting pneumococcal strains, or serotypes, that contribute to substantial disease burden, including serotype 3, and broadening coverage to additional disease-causing serotypes, 22F and 33F, which are not included in the pneumococcal conjugate vaccine (PCV) currently available for this population," said Dr. Roy Baynes, senior vice president and head of global clinical development, chief medical officer, Merck Research Laboratories. "We look forward to working with the U.S. FDA as it reviews what would be the first new option in pediatric pneumococcal vaccination in over a decade."
