G1 Therapeutics, a clinical-stage pharmaceutical company developing small-molecule therapies to address significant unmet needs in oncology, has announced that new preclinical data on its lead compound G1T28 will be presented in a minisymposium and a poster session at the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) Annual Meeting to be held April 18 – 22 at the Pennsylvania Convention Center in Philadelphia.
G1T28 is a clinical stage, small molecule inhibitor of cyclin dependent kinases 4 and 6 (CDK4/6).
G1T28 shown to induce a significant arrest of hematopoietic stem and progenitor cells
“These data demonstrate that G1T28 induces a significant, rapid and reversible arrest of hematopoietic stem and progenitor cells, which can reduce chemotherapy-induced myelosuppression,” said Raj Malik, MD, Chief Medical Officer of G1 Therapeutics. “Results of these pre-clinical studies support the continued advancement of the IV formulation of G1T28 in clinical trials to protect the bone marrow of patients with cancer from damage by chemotherapy.”
