La Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland, March 26, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Rhizen Pharmaceuticals S.A. announces poster presentation of RP4010, a novel first-in-class CRAC channel inhibitor in preclinical models of Gastrointestinal (GI) cancers.

Highlights from the poster include: 

  •  Treatment of GI cancer cell lines with single-agent RP4010 decreased cell growth 
  •  RP4010 synergized with gemcitabine and nab-paclitaxel in Pancreatic Ductal Adenocarcinoma (PDAC)
  •  RP4010 synergized with nab-paclitaxel in Gastric Cancer (GC)
  •  RP4010 significantly enhanced the activity of everolimus in Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors (PNETs)

About RP4010:

RP4010 is a novel first-in-class oral small molecule inhibitor of calcium release activated calcium (CRAC) channel pathway with demonstrated preclinical activity in a broad range of cancers.  Blockade of store-operated calcium entry (SOCE) through CRAC channel inhibition could suppress tumor growth via a number of downstream events including inhibition of NFAT dephosphorylation as well as calcium-dependent activation of Akt/NF-kB and ERK 1/2 pathways.  A multi-center Phase I/IB dose-escalation trial evaluating the safety and efficacy of RP4010, a CRAC channel inhibitor in patients with relapsed or refractory Lymphomas is currently ongoing in USA and Australia (ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier: NCT03119467).
