Jacobio Pharma Receives IND Approval In China For Its Therapy On Advanced Colorectal Cancer

Jacobio Pharma said that it has received the Investigational New Drug or the "IND" approval of the combination therapy of KRAS G12C inhibitor JAB-21822 and Cetuximab injection from the Center for Drug Evaluation of China or the "CDE" on December 3, 2021.

Therefore, Jacobio noted that it will start a phase I/II, open-label, multi-center, dose-escalation and expansion clinical trial in China. The clinical trial is aiming to explore the safety, tolerability and preliminary efficacy of the combination therapy of JAB-21822 and Cetuximab in KRAS G12C mutant patients with advanced colorectal cancer.

Jacobio's preclinical study shows that the combination therapy of JAB-21822 and Cetuximab can enhance the anti-tumor activity of JAB-21822 inhibitors in colorectal cancer tumor models, make tumor regression, and delay tumor re-growth after the cessation of using the drug.

JAB-21822 has been approved for five clinical trials in China and the United States, including mono therapies and combination therapies with either PD-1 antibody or Cetuximab to treat KRAS G12C mutant patients with advanced solid tumors including non-small cell lung cancer and colorectal cancer.
