Schrödinger To Present New Preclinical Data From Its CDC7 Inhibitor Program At American Society Of Hematology 2022 Annual Meeting
CDC7 is a cell cycle kinase involved in DNA replication and is an important activator of replication stress and DNA damage responses. CDC7 inhibition is considered a promising therapeutic approach for the treatment of cancers, including acute myeloid leukemia (AML). Schrödinger is advancing SGR-2921 through investigational new drug (IND)-enabling studies with plans to initiate a Phase 1 trial in patients with relapsed/refractory acute myeloid leukemia (AML) in the second half of 2023.
Details of the poster presentation are as follows:
Title: Inhibition of CDC7 with SGR-2921 in AML models results in enhanced DNA damage and anti-leukemic activity as monotherapy and in combination with standard of care agents
Abstract number: 2653
Date & time: Sunday,
Schrödinger is transforming the way therapeutics and materials are discovered. Schrödinger has pioneered a physics-based computational platform that enables discovery of high-quality, novel molecules for drug development and materials applications more rapidly and at lower cost compared to traditional methods. The software platform is licensed by biopharmaceutical and industrial companies, academic institutions, and government laboratories around the world. Schrödinger’s multidisciplinary drug discovery team also leverages the software platform to advance a portfolio of collaborative and proprietary programs to address unmet medical needs.
Founded in 1990, Schrödinger has approximately 800 employees and is engaged with customers and collaborators in more than 70 countries. To learn more, visit www.schrodinger.com, follow us on LinkedIn and Instagram, or visit our blog, Extrapolations.com.
Cautionary Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements
This press release contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of The Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995, including but not limited to those statements regarding the potential advantages of our computational platform, the potential of CDC7 inhibition for the treatment of cancer, the therapeutic potential of SGR-2921, and the expected timing and design of our planned Phase 1 clinical trial of SGR-2921. Statements including words such as “aim,” "anticipate," "believe," "contemplate," "continue," "could," "estimate," "expect," “goal,” "intend," "may," "might," "plan," "potential," "predict," "project," "should," "target," "will," "would" and statements in the future tense are forward-looking statements. These forward-looking statements reflect our current views about our plans, intentions, expectations, strategies and prospects, which are based on the information currently available to us and on assumptions we have made. Actual results may differ materially from those described in the forward-looking statements and are subject to a variety of assumptions, uncertainties, risks and factors that are beyond our control, including the uncertainties inherent in drug development, such as the conduct of research activities and the timing of and our ability to initiate and complete preclinical studies and clinical trials, uncertainties associated with the regulatory review of clinical trials and applications for marketing approvals, the ability to retain and hire key personnel and the direct and indirect impacts of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic on our business and other risks detailed under the caption "Risk Factors" and elsewhere in our
