Ellipses Pharma to present clinical updates at leading U.S. breast and blood cancer conferences

London, UK, 21 November 2022: Ellipses Pharma Limited (“Ellipses”), a global drug development company focused on accelerating the development of new oncology treatments, is delighted to announce that it will be presenting clinical updates covering two of its assets at the San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium (SABCS), taking place between 6 – 10 December 2022 in San Antonio, Texas, and at the 64th American Society of Hematology (ASH) Annual Meeting and Exposition, from 10 – 13 December 2022 in New Orleans, Louisiana.

At SABCS, a ‘Trial in Progress’ poster that details the design of a Phase 1 / 2 trial of vosilasarm (EP0062) will be presented. EP0062 is a selective androgen receptor modulator currently under development for the treatment of AR+/HER-/ER+ advanced breast cancer.

At ASH, Ellipses’ preliminary results of the dose escalation part of the Phase 1 / 2a first-in-human study of EP0042 in patients with acute myeloid leukaemia (AML) will be presented. EP0042 is a dual FLT3 and aurora kinase inhibitor. The trial is investigating the use of EP0042 as both a monotherapy and in combination with existing therapies.

Dr Rajan Jethwa, CEO of Ellipses Pharma, said:

“Ellipses is committed to developing novel cancer treatments at pace and getting them to patients. Presenting the design of Ellipses’ first trial of EP0062, and the preliminary findings of the EP0042 trial at two of the world’s leading oncology conferences is a significant step closer to delivering on that goal. We are proud of the work our dedicated team has delivered to make these trials happen and bring such potentially exciting data to light.”

Professor Sir Christopher Evans, Chairman of Ellipses Pharma, said:

“The presentation of these two posters is testament to the potential of the promising assets in Ellipses’ pipeline and demonstrates the progress we have made towards our goal of accelerating the development of much-needed cancer treatments.”
