Plan to provide detailed update for TRIDENT-1 registrational ROS1-positive NSCLC population and additional data for NTRK-positive solid tumor population, as well as SHIELD-1 Phase 1 data at medical conference in 2H 2022
On track to submit data to FDA to support elzovantinib recommended Phase 2 dose (RP2D) and for initiation of potentially registrational Phase 2 SHIELD-1 Study in 2H 2022, pending FDA feedback on data from the intermediate dose level
Definitive merger agreement with Bristol Myers Squibb to acquire Turning Point Therapeutics with transaction expected to close during the third quarter of 2022
Cash, Cash Equivalents, and Marketable Securities of Approximately $818 Million as of June 30, 2022

SAN DIEGO, August 8, 2022 – Turning Point Therapeutics, Inc. (NASDAQ: TPTX), a clinical-stage precision oncology company designing and developing novel targeted therapies for cancer treatment, today reported financial results for the quarter ended June 30, 2022 and provided operational updates.

 

“We are pleased with our continued pipeline advancement and expansion,” said Athena Countouriotis, M.D., President and CEO. “We look forward to a productive second half of the year, with multiple data readouts and continued regulatory progress.”

 

Second quarter and recent operational highlights include:

 

REPOTRECTINIB:

 

Announced receipt of positive feedback from the FDA at a pre-NDA meeting completed during the second quarter. The feedback focused on the proposed patient follow-up within the ROS1-positive advanced NSCLC patient cohorts of the ongoing TRIDENT-1 registrational study. The purpose of the pre-NDA meeting was to discuss the company’s

 


 

planned NDA for repotrectinib for the treatment of ROS1+ advanced NSCLC. The FDA agreed with the company’s plan to provide data for ROS1+ TKI-naïve and TKI-pretreated advanced NSCLC patients with at least six months of follow-up from the first post-baseline scan at the time of NDA submission.
Received Breakthrough Therapy designation (BTD) from the FDA for repotrectinib for the treatment of patients with ROS1-positive metastatic NSCLC who have been previously treated with one ROS1 tyrosine kinase inhibitor and who have not received prior platinum-based chemotherapy. This represents the eighth regulatory designation granted by the FDA for repotrectinib.

 

ELZOVANTINIB:

 

Initiated the Phase 1b/2 SHIELD-2 combination study of elzovantinib and aumolertinib in EGFR mutant MET-amplified advanced non-small cell lung cancer. The combination of elzovantinib and aumolertinib is being studied in patients with EGFR mutant MET-amplified advanced NSCLC who have progressed following treatment with osimertinib. The study will evaluate the safety, tolerability and preliminary efficacy of the combination regimen.

 

TPX-4589

 

Initiated patient dosing in the third dosing level cohort in the Phase 1 study of TPX-4589. TPX-4589 is a potentially first-in-class anti-Claudin18.2 antibody drug conjugate (ADC) that suppresses cell proliferation of gastric and pancreatic cell lines with nanomolar potency in preclinical models. It is currently being studied in two ongoing Phase 1 studies in patients with advanced solid tumors.

 

BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT:

 

Announced a strategic research and development alliance with The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center to expand the evaluation of repotrectinib and elzovantinib. The planned focus of the alliance includes monotherapy and potential combinations with other agents – including chemotherapy, immunotherapies and other targeted agents.
Entered into an exclusive license agreement with LaNova Medicines Limited to develop and commercialize LM-302, now known as TPX-4589, a novel antibody drug conjugate targeting Claudin18.2, in the United States and rest of the world excluding Greater China and South Korea. Claudin18.2 is a protein expressed in many gastrointestinal cancers, including gastric, gastroesophageal junction and pancreatic cancer. TPX-4589 is currently in Phase 1 clinical trials in both the United States and China.
Announced a definitive merger agreement with Bristol Myers Squibb to acquire Turning Point Therapeutics for $76.00 per share. The transaction was unanimously approved by both the Bristol Myers Squibb and Turning Point Therapeutics Boards of Directors and is anticipated to close during the third quarter of 2022.

R&D Expenses: Research and development expenses were $86.8 million for the second quarter of 2022 compared to $44.7 million for the second quarter of 2021.

G&A Expenses: General and administrative expenses were $37.7 million for the second quarter of 2022 compared to $17.2 million for the second quarter of 2021.

About Turning Point Therapeutics Inc.
Turning Point Therapeutics is a clinical-stage precision oncology company with a pipeline of investigational drugs designed to address key limitations of existing cancer therapies. The company’s lead drug candidate, repotrectinib, is a next-generation kinase inhibitor targeting the ROS1 and TRK oncogenic drivers of non-small cell lung cancer and advanced solid tumors. Repotrectinib, which is being studied in a registrational Phase 2 study in adults and a Phase 1/2 study in pediatric patients, has shown antitumor activity and durable responses among kinase inhibitor treatment-naïve and pre-treated patients. The company’s pipeline of drug candidates also includes elzovantinib, targeting MET, CSF1R and SRC, which is being studied in a Phase 1 trial of patients with advanced or metastatic solid tumors harboring genetic alterations in MET; TPX-0046, targeting RET, which is being studied in a Phase 1/2 trial of patients with advanced or metastatic solid tumors harboring genetic alterations in RET; TPX-0131, a next-generation ALK inhibitor, which is being studied in a Phase 1/2 trial of previously treated patients with ALK-positive advanced or metastatic non-small cell lung cancer; and TPX-4589 (LM-302), a novel ADC targeting Claudin18.2 which is being studied in a Phase 1 study in gastrointestinal cancers.

 


 

The company is driven to develop therapies that mark a turning point for patients in their cancer treatment. For more information, visit www.tptherapeutics.com.
