Jacobio Pharma has received breakthrough therapy designation (BTD) for glecirasib to treat pancreatic cancer patients with the KRAS G12C mutation.

The company’s in-house KRAS G12C inhibitor received the designation from the Center for Drug Evaluation of China’s National Medical Products Administration.

The BTD has been granted based on the results from an ongoing pivotal, multi-centre, single-arm, open-label study that assessed the safety and efficacy of the single agent glecirasib.

Patients with KRAS G12C-mutated locally advanced or metastatic pancreatic cancer who progressed on frontline standard care treatment were enrolled in the trial.

In December 2022, glecirasib received the first BTD for treating advanced or metastatic non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) patients with the KRAS G12C mutation.

Jacobio is also currently conducting a pivotal Phase I/II monotherapy study in China evaluating glecirasib in STK11 [a germline mutation] co-mutated NSCLC patients in the front-line setting.
