Philadelphia, PA (May 17, 2019) – Oncoceutics, Inc. announced that the latest efficacy data for the use of ONC201 in adult recurrent H3 K27M-mutant glioma will be presented in an Oral Abstract Session at the 2019 Annual Meeting of the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) in Chicago. In addition, there will be an update on ONC201 in previously irradiated pediatric H3 K27M-mutant glioma that will be presented in a poster session.
The oral abstract session presentation, entitled “Single agent ONC201 in adult recurrent H3 K27M-mutant glioma” will describe the clinical experience of ONC201, in adults with recurrent H3 K27M-mutant glioma. It will be presented on Monday, June 3rd from 9:24 am to 9:36 am (Abstract 3005) as part of the Developmental Therapeutics and Tumor Biology (nonimmune) session by Isabel Arrillaga, MD, PhD, Associate Clinical Director of Neuro-Oncology at MGH Cancer Center. The presentation will discuss a cohort of adults with H3 K27M-mutant glioma patients who have received ONC201 after failure of available therapies. The results will include assessments of radiographic response, progression-free survival, and overall survival, as well as safety and clinical benefit. This presentation was selected for review by a panel of discussants.
A second data set to be presented is entitled “ONC201 in previously-irradiated pediatric H3 K27M-mutant glioma,” and will be presented as a poster by Sharon Gardner, MD, Associate Professor in the Department of Pediatrics at NYU Langone Cancer Center, on Saturday, June 1, from 8:00 am to 11:00 am (Abstract 10046, Poster 428). Dr. Gardner will discuss the emerging safety, pharmacokinetics, and outcome data available from the first arm of the first pediatric clinical trial with ONC201. This trial is currently evaluating the compound in children with DIPG, or other forms of H3 K27M-mutant glioma, who have no meaningful treatment options.
“As someone who was involved from the very beginning in Oncoceutics’ development programs, I am delighted to see the progress in the development of ONC201 for brain tumors that have challenged our abilities in oncology for a long time”, said Joseph Bertino, MD, FAACR, Founding Member of the Scientific Advisory Board of Oncoceutics, Past President of ASCO and AACR, and, amongst the numerous accolades given to him, recipient of the 2018 Award for Lifetime Achievement in Cancer Research. “I am encouraged that the therapeutic concept of addressing GPCRs with imipridones for applications in oncology will materialize as a new paradigm to treat cancer. ONC206 is the next compound from the imipridone portfolio that will enter the clinic, and based on the preclinical profile, including the well characterized binding target and mechanism of action, I expect an efficient translational program.”
A team of Oncoceutics team members will be present at the conference. If you have any questions, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Oncoceutics, Inc. is a clinical-stage drug discovery and development company with a novel class of compounds, called “imipridones,” that selectively target G protein-coupled receptors for oncology. The first lead compound to emerge from this program is ONC201, an orally active small molecule DRD2 antagonist. The company is supported by grants from NCI, FDA, Musella Foundation, and a series of private and public partnerships. Visit Oncoceutics or contact Press@oncoceutics.com for more information.
