Direct-to-Patient Trials: How IRT Plays an Important Role in Bellerophon's Direct-to-Patient Trials

As the industry strengthens its focus on patient centricity, Direct-to-Patient clinical trials have emerged as a popular trial design that have the potential to increase patient recruitment and retention. IRT plays a crucial role in the success of a Direct-to-Patient trial. Because drug supplies are being managed and shipped from distribution facilities directly to patients’ homes, a sponsor must have a high-quality system in place to accurately track the chain of custody, ensure patient-blinding and handle other logistical challenges. What You Will Learn Benefits and challenges associated with the Direct-to-Patient model Bellerophon's top considerations when implementing this trial design How IRT can equip study teams to successfully track chain of custody, ensure patient blinding, and handle logistical challenges

ASN003 selectively inhibits B-RAF and phosphoinositide 3-kinase (PI3K), while demonstrating wider anti-proliferative activity against tumour cell lines.

Activation of the two signalling pathways triggers abnormal cell growth in a range of cancers such as melanoma, colorectal, breast and lung.

ASN003 can treat or prevent resistance to selective B-Raf inhibitors.

The Phase I trial is being conducted as a multicentre, dose-finding, cohort expansion study, which will include patients with advanced solid tumours with B-RAF V600 mutation or PI3K pathway alterations, including those with metastatic colorectal cancer (CRC) or advanced non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC).

"ASN003 is our third clinical stage programme in less than two years, affirming Asana’s efficiency and dedication to provide new and better treatment options to cancer patients."

The study is intended to establish the safety, tolerability and determine pharmacokinetics, pharmacodynamics profile and anti-tumour activity of ASN003.

Asana BioSciences founder, president and CEO Sandeep Gupta said: “We are delighted to initiate the clinical development of ASN003, which is a first-in-class, highly selective B-RAF / PI3K inhibitor designed to delay or treat acquired resistance observed in patients treated with current therapies targeting these individual pathways.

“The dosing of the first cohort in the trial has been completed, and the drug was well tolerated.

“ASN003 is our third clinical stage programme in less than two years, affirming Asana’s efficiency and dedication to provide new and better treatment options to cancer patients.”

ASN003 has also demonstrated anti-tumour activity when administered in combination with immune checkpoint and IDO inhibitors.
