About Tenalisib (RP6530):

Tenalisib (RP6530) is a highly selective and orally active dual PI3K delta/gamma inhibitor with efficient translation of activity through enzyme, cell, and whole blood-based studies. Besides inhibiting growth of immortalized cancerous cell lines and primary patient leukemic/lymphoma cells, RP6530 plays a significant role in modulation of tumor microenvironment at clinically achievable concentrations.  In preclinical studies, RP6530 reprograms macrophages from an immunosuppressive M2-like phenotype (pro-tumor) to an inflammatory M1-like state (anti-tumor), which can potentially enhance the activity of checkpoint inhibitors or overcome resistance to these drugs.  Tenalisib obtained US FDA Fast Track Designations for treatment of relapsed/refractory peripheral T-cell lymphoma and relapsed and/or refractory cutaneous T-cell lymphoma (R/R PTCL and R/R CTCL) in addition to Orphan-Drug Designations for treatment of peripheral and cutaneous T-cell lymphoma (PTCL and CTCL).
