Celcuity Inc. (Nasdaq: CELC), a clinical-stage biotechnology company pursuing development of targeted therapies for oncology, today announced that an abstract accepted for a poster presentation at the 2023 San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium (SABCS) is now available on the SABCS website. The 2023 San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium (SABCS) is being held virtually and in-person from December 5-9, 2023.

The presentation will include potency and efficacy data evaluating the effects of gedatolisib, a pan-PI3K/mTOR (PAM) inhibitor, and approved PAM inhibitors (PAMi) on breast cancer cell lines with mutated or non-mutated PAM pathway genes. Compared to the other PAMi, gedatolisib exhibited more potent and efficacious anti-proliferative and cytotoxic effects, regardless of the cell lines’ PI3K pathway mutational status. Mechanistically, gedatolisib decreased both DNA and protein synthesis more effectively than the other PAMi tested.

These findings demonstrate that gedatolisib may more effectively address potential drug resistance mechanisms associated with the approved PAM inhibitors. A Phase 3 VIKTORIA-1 trial evaluating gedatolisib plus fulvestrant with and without palbociclib is underway in in adults with HR+, HER2- advanced breast cancer.

Poster presentation details are provided below.

About Celcuity 

Celcuity is a clinical-stage biotechnology company focused on development of targeted therapies for treatment of multiple solid tumor indications. The company's lead therapeutic candidate is gedatolisib, a potent, pan-PI3K and mTOR inhibitor. Its mechanism of action and pharmacokinetic properties are highly differentiated from other currently approved and investigational therapies that target PI3K or mTOR alone or together. A Phase 3 clinical trial, VIKTORIA-1, evaluating gedatolisib in combination with fulvestrant with or without palbociclib in patients with HR+/HER2- advanced breast cancer is currently enrolling patients. More detailed information about the VIKTORIA-1 study can be found at ClinicalTrials.gov. A Phase 1b/2 clinical trial, CELC-G-201, evaluating gedatolisib in combination with darolutamide in patients with metastatic castration resistant prostate cancer, is expected to be initiated in the first quarter of 2024. The company's CELsignia companion diagnostic platform is uniquely able to analyze live patient tumor cells to identify new groups of cancer patients likely to benefit from already approved targeted therapies.
