July 01, 2020 – SAN DIEGO, California

ABM Therapeutics announced on June 22, 2020 that the first patient has been dosed in a phase I first-in-human clinical trial of their lead candidate, ABM-1310, a novel BRAF inhibitor with high solubility and brain permeability. The multicenter clinical trial is being conducted in patients with BRAF mutant advanced solid tumors, including patients with brain metastasis.

Dr. Chen Chen, founder and CEO of ABM Therapeutics, said, “Many cancer patients are affected by brain metastases, but current treatment options are limited. ABM-1310 significantly prolonged median survival time of brain metastases in preclinical models and is expected to be a new generation of BRAF inhibitors for the treatment of various malignant tumors and brain metastases.”

Dr. Qinhua Cindy Ru, managing director of CRC Oncology, stated, “We are pleased the ABM-1310 study has been able to overcome recent challenges in clinical trial conduct that is being experienced worldwide.
