Abstract Text Background: Oncogenic BRAF gene alterations, leading to aberrantly activated BRAF monomers (Class I mutations) or dimers (Class II and Class III mutations), are observed in approximately 6% of all human cancers. First-generation BRAF inhibitors targeting Class I BRAF mutants, including dabrafenib, encorafenib, and vemurafenib, provide significant clinical benefit to patients with BRAF V600 mutation-driven melanoma and select solid tumors as monotherapies or in combination with other targeted therapies. The currently approved BRAF inhibitors have not, however, proven to be effective in patients with Class II or III BRAF alterations which account for a large proportion (34%) of BRAF mutations. KIN-2787 is an orally available, potent and selective small molecule pan-RAF inhibitor specifically designed to inhibit Class II and III BRAF dimers, in addition to Class I mutants. Methods: The efficacy and tolerability of the pan-RAF inhibitor, KIN-2787, was evaluated in vitro and in vivo in Class I, II, and III BRAF mutation-driven human cancer models. Results: In biochemical assays, KIN-2787 showed low nanomolar to picomolar potency against RAF1, BRAF, and ARAF (IC50 0.06-3.46 nM) with minimal activity towards non-RAF kinases. In cell-based assays, KIN-2787 inhibited RAF activity, as measured by inhibition of downstream ERK phosphorylation (pERK), across multiple BRAF mutant cancer cell lines. Class II and III BRAF mutant cell lines were the most responsive when treated with KIN-2787 (IC50 < 50 nM); 19- and 7-fold more sensitive compared to cells harboring wild-type BRAF, respectively. Dose-dependent inhibition of A-375 (Class I), BxPC-3 (Class II), and WM3629 (Class III) BRAF mutant human xenograft tumor growth was attained with daily KIN-2787 treatment and was well-tolerated. A trend towards greater tumor responses was observed with twice daily (BID) compared to once daily (QD) dosing of KIN-2787; however, the two dosing regimens led to similar tumor growth inhibition (TGI) and regressions (mean TGI up to 101-118%; p ≤0.0001) at equivalent total daily doses. Furthermore, KIN-2787 led to a significant in vivo pharmacodynamic response using either regimen, however, prolonged target coverage, as measured by pERK, was achieved with BID dosing. The impact of KIN-2787 treatment on additional biomarkers, including transcriptional changes and MAPK pathway modulation in cell-based models and patient-derived samples, will be presented at the meeting. Conclusions: KIN-2787 is a next-generation pan-RAF inhibitor with pronounced in vitro and in vivo activity against human cancers driven by Class II and III BRAF mutations. A phase 1 dose escalation and expansion clinical trial evaluating the safety and efficacy of KIN-2787 monotherapy in patients with advanced or metastatic solid tumors harboring BRAF gene alterations, including Class II and III mutations, is expected to initiate in 2021.

Filtering

  • Case insensitive filtering will display rows where any text in any cell matches the filter term
  • Simple literal full or partial string matches
  • Separate multiple filter terms with a spaces, order doesn't matter (a b c and c b a are equivalent )
  • Filtering will only apply to rows that are already loaded on the page, filtering has no impact on query parameters
  • Use quotes to match a longer phrase which contains spaces "mtor c1483f"

Sorting

  • Generally, the default sort order for tables is set to be first column ascending, however, specific tables may set a different default sort order.
  • Click on any column header arrows to sort by that column
  • Hold down the Shift key and click multiple columns to sort by more than one column, be sure to set ascending or descending order for a given column, before moving on to the next column.
