Carrick Therapeutics Announces First Patient Dosed in Phase 2 Clinical Trial of Samuraciclib in Combination with Elacestrant in Patients with Advanced Breast Cancer

Share

BOSTON, Oct. 18, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Carrick Therapeutics, an oncology-focused biopharmaceutical company discovering and developing highly differentiated therapies, today announced that the first patient has been dosed in its Phase 2 clinical trial evaluating the novel combination of Carrick's samuraciclib (CT7001), an oral and first-in-class inhibitor of CDK7, and the Menarini Group's (Menarini) oral selective estrogen receptor degrader (SERD), elacestrant, in patients with CDK4/6i resistant HR+, HER2- metastatic breast cancer.

"Dosing the first patient in our Phase 2 clinical trial evaluating the combination of samuraciclib and elacestrant is an important milestone in our goal of improving outcomes for women fighting metastatic breast cancer,” said Tim Pearson, Chief Executive Officer of Carrick Therapeutics. “Our prior studies have validated the biology for elacestrant with CDK7, and we are eager to evaluate the potential synergistic benefit of this fully oral combination therapy in patients with advanced breast cancer.”

The trial will initially evaluate the tolerability and pharmacokinetics of the combination then recruit an expansion cohort evaluating the longer-term progression free survival benefits. ctDNA analysis performed via liquid biopsy will form a critical component of the study to inform two key questions: (1) the level of benefit in patients without a detectable ESR1-mutation and (2) the patient selection biomarker potential of TP53-mutation status.

The Phase 2 clinical trial evaluating the novel combination of samuraciclib and elacestrant is being conducted in collaboration with Menarini, pursuant to a clinical trial collaboration and supply agreement for elacestrant. Clinical trial details can also be found on www.clinicaltrials.gov under study ID: NCT05963997. For additional information on the clinical trial, please contact hello@carricktherapeutics.com.

About Samuraciclib (CT7001)
Samuraciclib is the most advanced CDK7 inhibitor in clinical development. Inhibiting CDK7 is a promising therapeutic strategy in cancer as CDK7 regulates the transcription of cancer-causing genes, promotes uncontrolled cell cycle progression and promotes resistance to anti-hormone therapy. Samuraciclib has demonstrated a favorable safety profile and encouraging efficacy in early clinical studies. In addition to the above studies, samuraciclib has further potential in prostate, pancreatic, ovarian and colorectal cancers. Samuraciclib has been granted Fast Track designations from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for use in combination with fulvestrant for the treatment of CDK4/6i resistant HR+, HER2- advanced breast cancer. Carrick is collaborating with Roche and Menarini Group to evaluate novel combinations of samuraciclib with Roche’s oral SERD giredestrant and Menarini Group’s oral SERD elacestrant in CDK4/6i resistant HR+, HER2- metastatic breast cancer.

About Carrick Therapeutics
Carrick Therapeutics is an oncology-focused biopharmaceutical company developing highly differentiated novel therapies that address significant unmet needs. The Company’s lead program, samuraciclib, is a novel CDK7 inhibitor currently in Phase 2 clinical trials for HR+ breast cancer. Additionally, Carrick is developing CT7439, a novel CDK12/13 inhibitor / Cyclin-K glue-degrader, which is expected to enter a Phase 1 clinical trial in the first half of 2024.

Havila Kystruten AS: Fourth quarter 2023 accounts28.2.2024 22:24:49 CET | Press release

Summary The company has completed its first quarter with full operation of all four ships. Revenue in the fourth quarter was MNOK 249. Due to late clarification on the delivery of the last two ships, the revenue side is somewhat lower than if the pre-sale had started earlier. The last quarter of 2023 ended with an average fleet occupancy of 60%, an average cabin rate (ACR) of NOK 3,100 and a utilization rate of 1.8 per cabin. Occupancy and average price per cabin are higher than the fourth quarter of 2022, but are somewhat lower than the third quarter due to lower demand in the autumn and winter months. EBITDA was negative by MNOK 33.2 in the fourth quarter and MNOK 179 for the full year. Operating costs amounted to MNOK 283 in the fourth quarter and are mainly ordinary operating costs for operating four ships. Some of the operating costs are related to the number of passengers, while the largest cost items are not significantly affected by occupancy. MNOK 18 relates to extraordinary m

Havila Kystruten AS: Regnskap for fjerde kvartal 202328.2.2024 22:24:49 CET | Pressemelding

Sammendrag Selskapet har gjennomført sitt første kvartal med full drift av alle fire skip. Inntektene utgjorde i fjerde kvartal MNOK 249. Som følge av sen avklaring på levering av de to siste skipene, er inntektssiden noe lavere enn om forhåndssalget hadde startet før. Siste kvartal i 2023 endte med et gjennomsnittlig belegg for flåten på 60%, en gjennomsnittlig lugarrate (ACR) på NOK 3 100 og en utnyttelsesgrad på 1,8 per lugar. Belegg og gjennomsnittspris per lugar er høyere enn fjerde kvartal 2022, men er noe lavere enn tredje kvartal som følge av lavere etterspørsel i høst- og vintermånedene. EBITDA var negativ med MNOK 33,2 i fjerde kvartal og MNOK 179 for hele året. Driftskostnadene utgjør MNOK 283 i fjerde kvartal og er hovedsakelig ordinære driftskostnader for drift av fire skip. Deler av driftskostnadene er knyttet til antall passasjerer, mens de største kostnadspostene ikke er vesentlig påvirket av belegg. MNOK 18 gjelder ekstraordinære kostnader til markedsføring for å sikre
