On January 20th, 2017, Infinity Pharma presented preclinical data for IPI-549, an oral immuno-oncology development candidate that selectively inhibits phosphoinositide-3-kinase-gamma (PI3K-gamma). Preclinical data showed that IPI-549 is able to help overcome resistance to checkpoint inhibition by remodeling the immune-suppressive tumor microenvironment primarily through its effects on myeloid cells, a type of cell considered to be involved in suppressing immune response against tumors. Initial Phase-1 monotherapy data from nine patients with advanced solid tumors were also summarized and showed that the safety, pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of IPI-549 monotherapy treatment appeared favorable. IPI-549 is believed to be the only PI3K-gamma inhibitor in clinical development. The complimentary report on INFI can be downloaded at:
