Prelude and BeiGene Announce Clinical Trial Collaboration to Explore Novel Therapy for Hematologic Malignancies

Prelude Therapeutics

WILMINGTON, DEPrelude Therapeutics Incorporated (Nasdaq: PRLD) this week announced a clinical trial collaboration with BeiGene, for future evaluation of its investigational CDK9 inhibitor, PRT2527, in combination with BeiGene’s BTK inhibitor, zanubrutinib, in hematologic malignancies.

Inhibition of BTK is an active therapeutic approach in several B cell malignancies and the combination of CDK9 inhibition with BTK inhibition has demonstrated, in recent data publications, synergistic clinical efficacy over BTK inhibition alone; hence, there is a strong rationale for studying the combination in patients with certain hematologic malignancies.

“The opportunity to combine Prelude’s potent, selective and potentially best-in-class CDK9 inhibitor with BeiGene’s next-generation highly efficacious and tolerable BTK inhibitor, zanubrutinib, reflects our commitment to bringing the most promising options to patients,” said Jane Huang, MD, President and Chief Medical Officer, Prelude Therapeutics.

Under terms of the clinical trial collaboration agreement, BeiGene will provide zanubrutinib to Prelude, and Prelude will retain all global operational, development and commercialization rights and responsibilities for PRT2527.
