Event and Live Webcast to be Held on
The event, which follows the oral presentation of the DUO data results
at ASH, will feature a slide presentation and moderated panel discussion
with recognized experts in the treatment of hematologic malignancies,
including CLL/SLL, and a live Q&A session. Speakers will include
The event will take place during the ASH 2017 Annual Meeting and is open
to analysts and institutional investors. Interested parties can access a
live webcast of the event beginning
Duvelisib is Verastem’s first in class oral dual inhibitor of phosphoinositide-3-kinase (PI3K)-delta and PI3K-gamma which is currently being developed for the treatment of CLL/SLL, peripheral T cell lymphoma (PTCL), and other hematologic malignancies.
Duvelisib is a first-in-class investigational, dual inhibitor of phosphoinositide 3-kinase (PI3K)-delta and PI3K-gamma, two enzymes known to help support the growth and survival of malignant B-cells and T-cells. PI3K signaling may lead to the proliferation of malignant B-cells and is thought to play a role in the formation and maintenance of the supportive tumor microenvironment.1,2,3 Duvelisib is currently being evaluated in late- and mid-stage extension trials, including DUO™, a randomized, Phase 3 monotherapy study in patients with relapsed or refractory chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL)/small lymphocytic lymphoma (SLL),4 and DYNAMO™, a single-arm, Phase 2 monotherapy study in patients with refractory indolent non-Hodgkin lymphoma (iNHL).5 Both DUO and DYNAMO achieved their primary endpoints and Verastem intends to submit a New Drug Application (NDA) requesting the full approval of duvelisib for the treatment of patients with relapsed or refractory CLL/SLL, and accelerated approval for the treatment of patients with relapsed or refractory follicular lymphoma (FL). Duvelisib is also being developed by Verastem for the treatment of peripheral T-cell lymphoma (PTCL), and is being investigated in combination with other agents through investigator-sponsored studies.6 Information about duvelisib clinical trials can be found on www.clinicaltrials.gov.
