mTORC1-Selective Inhibitor, RMC-5552, Demonstrates Preliminary Evidence of Clinical Activity in Ongoing Phase 1/1b Monotherapy Study

REDWOOD CITY, Calif., Feb. 28, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Revolution Medicines, Inc. (Nasdaq: RVMD), a clinical-stage oncology company developing novel targeted therapies for RAS-addicted cancers, today announced its financial results for the fourth quarter and year ended December 31, 2021 and provided a corporate update.

“Revolution Medicines continues to advance our integrated RAS-focused pipeline consisting of innovative RAS(ON) Inhibitors and RAS Companion Inhibitors. RMC-6236, a RASMULTI(ON) inhibitor, and RMC-6291, a KRASG12C(ON)-selective inhibitor, are both on track to enter the clinic this year. In addition, we recently reported the addition of two new oral, covalent, mutant-selective RAS(ON) inhibitors to our development-stage pipeline. RMC-9805 is a selective inhibitor of KRASG12D(ON), and RMC-8839 is a selective inhibitor of KRASG13C(ON), neither target of which is served today by targeted drugs,” said Mark A. Goldsmith, M.D., Ph.D., chief executive officer and chairman of Revolution Medicines.

“Our RAS Companion Inhibitor pipeline also continues to mature. We disclosed that a first patient has been dosed in RMC-4630-03, our global Phase 2 study of RMC-4630 in combination with sotorasib in patients with non-small cell lung cancer carrying a KRASG12C mutation. In addition, in the dose escalation phase of our Phase 1/1b clinical trial of RMC-5552, our selective inhibitor of mTORC1, we reported preliminary evidence of clinical activity against advanced tumors with mutations associated with hyperactive mTORC1 signaling. We look forward to advancing each of these promising programs in 2022 toward our goal to serve substantial unmet needs among patients with RAS-addicted cancers.”

RAS(ON) Inhibitors – Revolution Medicines continues to build on its innovative RAS(ON) Inhibitor platform, producing an expansive collection of tri-complex inhibitors targeting diverse oncogenic RAS variants through highly differentiated chemical and pharmacologic profiles.

  • RMC-6236 (RASMULTI) – RMC-6236 is a first-in-class, potent, oral RAS-selective tri-complex, RASMULTI(ON) inhibitor designed to treat cancers driven by a variety of KRAS mutations, including those that can emerge following treatment with KRASG12C(OFF) inhibitors.

    • The company reported data at the AACR-NCI-EORTC Conference demonstrating that RMC-6236 induced significant regressions in in vivo tumor xenograft models of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), pancreatic cancer and colorectal cancer (CRC) bearing KRASG12D, KRASG12V, KRASG12R or KRASG12C driver mutations.
    • During the AACR-NCI-EORTC Conference, the company presented data from a preclinical combination study evaluating RMC-6236 with a PD-1 inhibitor demonstrating that RMC-6236 alone induces anti-tumor immunity in vivo and also exhibits additive anti-tumor benefit with checkpoint inhibition as indicated by complete and durable responses.
    • The company also presented an expanded dataset at the Gastrointestinal Cancer Drug Development Summit demonstrating the ability of both RMC-6236 and RMC-6291 to induce tumor regressions in xenograft models of RAS-mutant CRC.
    • The company remains on track to submit an Investigational New Drug application (IND) for RMC-6236 in the first half of this year as its first of multiple RAS(ON) inhibitor IND submissions currently planned during 2022-2023, and anticipates disclosing evidence of first-in-class single agent activity for RMC-6236 in 2023.

  • RMC-6291 (KRASG12C) – RMC-6291 is a first-in-class, potent, oral and selective tri-complex inhibitor of KRASG12C(ON) with a differentiated preclinical profile designed to serve patients with cancers driven by KRASG12C.

    • The company reported data at the AACR-NCI-EORTC International Conference on Molecular Targets and Cancer Therapeutics demonstrating superior outcomes with orally administered RMC-6291 as compared to adagrasib in preclinical models of KRASG12C NSCLC.
    • Initial clinical development for RMC-6291 will seek to establish best-in-class activity against KRASG12C tumors.
    • The company remains on track to submit an IND for RMC-6291 in the first half of 2022 and anticipates disclosing preliminary evidence of superior activity in 2023.

  • RMC-9805 (KRASG12D) – RMC-9805 is an oral, mutant-selective, covalent inhibitor of KRASG12D(ON) which is the primary tumor driver in more than 50,000 new patients primarily with colorectal, pancreatic or lung cancer annually in the United States.

    • The company selected RMC-9805 as a development candidate and advanced it into IND-enabling development.
    • The company reported data at the AACR-NCI-EORTC Conference showing RMC-9805 covalently and selectively modifies KRASG12D.
    • RMC-9805 displayed its first- and best-in-class potential by inducing tumor regressions achieved following repeat oral dosing in vivo in tumor xenograft models of KRASG12D-driven pancreatic cancer and CRC.
    • The company remains on track to submit an IND for RMC-9805 in the first half of 2023.

  • RMC-8839 (KRASG13C) – RMC-8839 is an oral, mutant-selective, covalent inhibitor of KRASG13C(ON) that Revolution Medicines believes is the first compound to directly target KRASG13C, an important therapeutic target primarily for lung cancer and select CRC patients who are not currently served by any targeted RAS drug.

    • The company selected RMC-8839 as a development candidate and advanced it into IND-enabling development.
    • The company reported data at the AACR-NCI-EORTC Conference showing RMC-8839 covalently and selectively modifies KRASG13C.
    • The company remains on track to submit an IND for RMC-8839 in the second half of 2023.

  • Continued expansion of other RAS(ON) Inhibitor programs – Revolution Medicines continues to progress its growing portfolio of orally bioavailable, mutant-selective RAS(ON) Inhibitors designed to target RAS variants driving RAS-addicted cancers that are unserved by targeted drugs.

    • The company reported multiple discovery programs pursuing additional mutant-selective compounds for various cancer mutations at RAS hotspots G12 (e.g. G12V and G12R), G13 (i.e. G13D) and Q61.
    • The company has a goal of nominating a fifth development candidate in the second half of 2022.

RAS Companion Inhibitors – Revolution Medicines continues to advance and expand multiple clinical studies of its RAS Companion Inhibitors designed to provide maximum clinical benefit in RAS-addicted cancers.

  • RMC-4630 (SHP2 Inhibitor) – RMC-4630, a potent, oral, selective inhibitor of the SHP2 protein, is being advanced in partnership with, and is primarily funded by, Sanofi our global SHP2 development and commercialization partner.

    • RMC-4630 and KRASG12C inhibitor Lumakras (sotorasib)
      • Amgen is currently evaluating RMC-4630 in an active Phase 1b study in combination with Amgen’s KRASG12C(OFF) inhibitor, sotorasib in its CodeBreaK 101c study. Amgen recently announced it plans to share data in the second half of 2022.
      • As a complement to the CodeBreaK 101c study, the company is sponsoring RMC-4630-03, a global Phase 2 study of RMC-4630 in combination with sotorasib. The first patient in RMC-4630-03 has been dosed and enrollment is ongoing patients with NSCLC carrying a KRASG12C mutation who have failed prior standard therapy and who have not previously been treated with a RAS inhibitor. The company is sponsoring the RMC-4630-03 study under its global partnership with Sanofi and conducting the trial in collaboration with Amgen, which is supplying sotorasib to study sites globally. The company expects to complete enrollment of this study in the second half of 2022 and to provide preliminary evidence of clinical benefit in 2022, with additional evidence of clinical benefit as a RAS Companion Inhibitor expected to be provided in 2023.

    • RMC-4630 and KRASG12C inhibitor adagrasib
      • Sanofi is planning a combination study under its global SHP2 partnership with the company evaluating RMC-4630 (also known as SAR442720) in combination with Mirati’s KRASG12C inhibitor, adagrasib. This study expands the evaluation of the potential benefit of adding RMC-4630 in this class of KRASG12C(OFF) inhibitors.

    • RMC-4630 and PD-1 inhibitor pembrolizumab (Keytruda®)
      • The TCD16210 study sponsored by Sanofi continues evaluating RMC-4630 in combination with pembrolizumab, a PD-1 inhibitor. Sanofi has recently begun treating patients in an expansion cohort evaluating this combination in first-line treatment for patients with PDL-1 positive lung cancer.
  • RMC-5552 (mTORC1/4EBP1 Inhibitor) – RMC-5552 is a potent, selective bi-steric inhibitor of mTORC1 that suppresses phosphorylation and inactivation of 4EBP1.

    • The company recently reported initial findings from the ongoing dose escalation portion of its Phase 1/1b clinical trial of RMC-5552, including preliminary evidence of clinical activity against advanced tumors with mutations associated with hyperactive mTORC1 signaling. The data showed that all four efficacy evaluable patients treated with 6 mg per week experienced disease control, including one patient exhibiting a confirmed partial response with a 63% reduction from baseline and the other three with stable disease. The company anticipates disclosing additional evidence of single agent activity in 2023.
    • The company aims to evaluate RMC-5552 in combination with RAS(ON) Inhibitors in patients carrying both RAS and mTOR pathway mutations, representing approximately 30,000 new patients per year in the United States.

Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2021 Financial Highlights

Cash Position: Cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities were $577.1 million as of December 31, 2021, compared to $440.7 million as of December 31, 2020. The increase was primarily due to proceeds from the company’s public equity offering in February 2021.

Revenue: Total revenue, consisting of revenue from the company’s collaboration agreement with Sanofi, was $9.5 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2021, compared to $8.8 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2020.

Total revenue was $29.4 million for the year ended December 31, 2021, compared to $43.0 million for the year ended December 31, 2020. During the third quarter of 2021, the company recorded a non-cash, non-recurring GAAP accounting adjustment that reduced collaboration revenue by $8.5 million as a result of a change in estimate of the accounting transaction price and percentage of completion of work performed to date under its agreement with Sanofi.
