• Philadelphia, PA (November 20, 2019) – Oncoceutics, Inc. announced that new data will be presented on the efficacy and mechanism of action of imipridones ONC201 and ONC206 at the 24nd Annual Scientific Meeting of the Society of Neuro-Oncology, to be held November 20th-24th in Phoenix, Arizona.

    These data will highlight exciting findings that have emerged over the past year, including:

    • Updated clinical results for ONC201 in pediatric and adult H3 K27M-mutant gliomas
    • Extension of ONC201 activity to other brain tumors
    • Synergy antitumor activity of ONC201 in combination with other treatments
    • Activity of ONC206 in medulloblastoma
    • IND-enabling studies with ONC206
    • Distinctions in the activity of ONC201 and ONC206
    • Inhibition of mitochondrial function by ONC201
    • The capability of the imipridone family to bind to distinct molecular targets

    Oncoceutics and academic investigators will present a range of results with imipridones that will include mechanistic and efficacy findings from preclinical models that detail their unique therapeutic potential in neuro-oncology. In addition, updated safety, pharmacokinetic, pharmacodynamic, and efficacy results from clinical trials with ONC201 in high-grade glioma patients will be reported. These results are largely derived from the ongoing clinical program that is dedicated to exploring ONC201 a molecularly-defined patient population (H3 K27M-mutant glioma). The rationale for the upcoming first-in-human clinical trial of ONC206 in adult recurrent CNS tumors will also be highlighted.

    About Oncoceutics

    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 first one that exhibits a highly specific bi-topic binding to the receptor. The company is supported by grants from the NCI, FDA, The Musella Foundation, and a series of private and public partnerships.
