Schr�dinger, Inc. (Nasdaq: SDGR), whose physics-based computational platform is transforming the way therapeutics and materials are discovered, today presented the discovery of SGR-1505, its MALT1 inhibitor, during the First Time Disclosure Session at the American Chemical Society (ACS) Spring 2024 Meeting. SGR-1505 is being evaluated in a Phase 1 dose-escalation study in patients with relapsed/refractory B-cell malignancies.

The oral presentation provided an overview of how Schr�dinger leveraged its computational approaches at scale to discover SGR-1505. Schr�dinger’s platform enabled vast exploration of chemical space, triaging 8.2 billion compounds, synthesizing 78 of the most promising molecules in the lead series, and identifying SGR-1505 as the company’s development candidate in approximately 10 months. Reaching a development candidate can take three to six years and typically involves synthesizing up to 5,000 molecules per program.

“Designing the optimal molecule is a tremendous multi-parameter optimization challenge that requires balancing many key properties,” stated Aleksey Gerasyuto, Ph.D., head of medicinal chemistry at Schr�dinger. “One of our goals in this program was to address the limitations reported with other MALT1 inhibitors. By leveraging our computational platform, our cross-functional team simultaneously and rapidly optimized key drug-like properties and designed several distinct chemical series, ultimately selecting SGR-1505 as our development candidate.”

“We believe SGR-1505 has the potential to be a best-in-class compound. The preclinical profile of SGR-1505, coupled with positive data from our recently completed Phase 1 study in healthy subjects, further increases our conviction about our MALT1 program,” said Margaret Dugan, M.D., chief medical officer at Schr�dinger. “Our Phase 1 study in patients with relapsed/refractory B-cell lymphomas is progressing well, and we look forward to reporting initial data from the study in late 2024 or 2025.”

SGR-1505 Clinical Studies

Schr�dinger is conducting a Phase 1 dose-escalation study in patients with relapsed/refractory B-cell lymphomas to evaluate the safety, pharmacokinetics, pharmacodynamics and preliminary signals of therapeutic activity of SGR-1505 as a monotherapy. The study is enrolling patients at multiple sites in the U.S. and Europe. Once the recommended dose is determined, an expansion cohort is planned to evaluate SGR-1505 in combination with other anti-cancer agents, such as BTK and BCL-2 inhibitors, in patients with specific B-cell malignancies.

Schr�dinger recently completed a Phase 1 study showing that SGR-1505 was well tolerated in a Phase 1 study of 73 healthy volunteers. No drug-related serious adverse events or dose limiting toxicities were observed in the study. The data also confirmed target engagement, with greater than 90 percent inhibition of IL-2 secretion in activated T cells, a pharmacodynamic goal of the study.
