    Announced enrollment of first patient in RP-6306 Phase 1 clinical trial

    Activated 10 clinical trial sites across North America and Europe for the PARP-inhibitor combination arm of the RP-3500 TRESR Phase 1/2 clinical trial

    Repare Therapeutics Inc. ("Repare" or the "Company") (NASDAQ:RPTX), a leading clinical-stage precision oncology company enabled by its proprietary synthetic lethality approach to the discovery and development of novel therapeutics, today reported financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2021.

    "We have advanced the Phase 1/2 clinical development of our ATR inhibitor RP-3500, with initial results expected from the monotherapy arm of the trial in the second half of 2021. The PARP inhibitor and RP-3500 combination arm is now recruiting," said Lloyd M. Segal, President and Chief Executive Officer of Repare. "We are pleased that the first patient has been dosed in our Phase 1 clinical trial of RP-6306, materially ahead of the timeline we disclosed at the time of our IPO last June."

    First Quarter 2021 Review and Operational Updates:

    • Highlighted program progress and introduced PKMYT1 as synthetic-lethal target to CCNE1 and FBXW7 at RP-6306 Virtual Investor Day Event.
      • In April 2021, the Company highlighted pre-clinical anti-tumor activity of RP-6306, a potential first-in-class small molecule product candidate targeting PKMYT1, which is synthetic lethal with CCNE1 amplification, FBXW7 loss, and potentially other genomic alterations.
    • Announced enrollment of first patient in RP-6306 Phase 1 clinical trial.
      • In April 2021, the Company dosed the first patient in its Phase 1 clinical trial of RP-6306.
      • The trial (NCT04855656) is expected to enroll approximately 60 patients with recurrent tumors characterized by genomic alterations predicted by the Company's SNIPRx® CRISPR-based platform to be sensitive to RP-6306.
      • The trial objectives include assessment of safety, tolerability, dose and schedule (including the establishment of a recommended Phase 2 dose).
      • Subject to completion and review of the Phase 1 clinical trial, the Company expects to advance RP-6306, both as monotherapy and in combination with chemotherapies and other agents, into proof-of-concept trials in 2022 targeting a variety of patient populations, including those with tumors with CCNE1 amplification, FBXW7 loss or other undisclosed alterations identified through its proprietary STEP2 screen.
      • Prospective enrichment of patient trial populations will be guided by the Company's ongoing efforts to develop patient selection, target engagement and functional biomarkers.
    • Initiated patient recruitment of PARP-inhibitor combination arm of the RP-3500 TRESR Phase 1/2 clinical trial.
      • Repare has activated 10 clinical trial sites across North America and Europe, and is actively recruiting patients to evaluate RP-3500 in a combination arm with Pfizer's PARP inhibitor, talazoparib, in addition to a monotherapy arm.
      • Initial results are expected to be reported from the monotherapy arm of the trial in the second half of 2021.

    First Quarter 2021 Financial Results:

    • Cash and cash equivalents, restricted cash and marketable securities: Cash and cash equivalents, restricted cash and marketable securities as of March 31, 2021 were $319.1 million.
    • Research and development expenses, net of tax credits (Net R&D): Net R&D expenses were $16.5 million and $8.6 million for the quarters ended March 31, 2021 and 2020, respectively. The increase in R&D expenses year-over-year was primarily due to increases in development costs related to the Company's RP-3500 and RP-6306 programs, as well as increases in personnel related expenses, including stock-based compensation, and certain other R&D expenses.
    • General and administrative (G&A) expenses: G&A expenses were $5.2 million and $2.2 million for the quarters ended March 31, 2021 and 2020, respectively. The increase in G&A expenses year-over-year was due to increases in personnel related costs, including stock-based compensation, and D&O insurance which increased as a result of the Company's transition to a public company.
    • Net loss: Net loss was $21.4 million, or $0.58 per share in the quarter ended March 31, 2021 and $12.6 million, or $7.71 per share, in the quarter ended March 31, 2020.

    Closed IPO and Raised $144 Million in Gross Proceeds to Fund Targeted Oncology Therapies

    IND Submissions for Lead Targeted Oncology Program, IK-930, and BMS-partnered program, IK-412, Remain on Track for Second Half of 2021

    Ikena Oncology, Inc. (NASDAQ:IKNA), a targeted oncology company focused on developing therapies targeting key signaling pathways that drive the formation and spread of cancer, today announced financial results for the quarter ended March 31, 2021.

    "This first quarter marked important milestones for Ikena, both with our entrance into the public markets and the advances we have made across our pipeline. We continued to progress our clinical development programs and our lead targeted oncology program is on track for an IND submission in the second half of the year," said Mark Manfredi, PhD, President & Chief Executive Officer of Ikena. "We are thrilled that through our IPO, we brought in new long-term partners and deepened our relationships with our current investors. The funding, along with a dedicated and passionate team, are propelling us towards our mission of bringing novel targeted cancer therapies to patients."

    Recent Business Highlights and Corporate Update

    Financial and Corporate

    • In March 2021, Ikena completed a successful initial public offering (IPO), raising $143.8 million in aggregate gross proceeds, before deducting underwriting discounts and commissions and estimated offering expenses, and listed on The Nasdaq Global Market. The IPO followed the closing of a Series B crossover financing of $120 million in gross proceeds in December 2020.
    • In April 2021, Maria Koehler, MD, PhD, current Chief Medical Officer of Repare Therapeutics, Inc. (NASDAQ:RPTX), was appointed to the Ikena Board of Directors. Dr. Koehler is a board-certified hematologist and oncologist with more than 20 years of pharmaceutical and biotech oncology experience in clinical development, including senior roles at Pfizer where she contributed to the strategic direction of the oncology portfolio.

    Development Pipeline

    • IK-930: IND-enabling studies are ongoing for Ikena's lead targeted oncology program, IK-930, a potent, selective and well tolerated oral small molecule TEAD inhibitor in the Hippo signaling pathway. In preclinical studies, IK-930 demonstrated anti-tumor activity in Hippo pathway-driven cancer models and synergy with EGFR inhibition and MEK inhibition.
    • ERK5 Inhibitor: Lead optimization is ongoing for Ikena's ERK5 inhibitor program which is being developed for the treatment of KRAS mutant tumors. Ikena's ERK5 tool molecule inhibitor has shown single agent and synergistic anti-tumor activity with MEK inhibition in preclinical models of KRAS mutant pancreatic cancer and lung adenocarcinoma.
    • IK-175: The ongoing Phase 1b clinical trial with IK-175, Ikena's AHR antagonist, continues to enroll patients in the monotherapy dose expansion arm. In addition, the first patient was recently dosed in the dose escalation combination arm which consists of IK-175 with nivolumab in patients with bladder cancer, including patients with AHR-activated tumors.
    • IK-412: IND-enabling studies are currently ongoing for IK-412, a novel enzymatic therapeutic designed to lower levels of kynurenine, an immunosuppressive metabolite in the tumor microenvironment. IK-412 has demonstrated profound and durable kynurenine depletion in preclinical models.
    • IK-007: The ongoing Phase 1b clinical trial continues to enroll patients with advanced or progressive microsatellite stable colorectal cancer (MSS-CRC) with IK-007 in combination with pembrolizumab. The clinical trial is enriching for patients that have high urinary prostaglandin E metabolite (PGEM) biomarker.

    Milestones and Key Priorities for 2021

    • Complete IND-enabling studies for TEAD inhibitor, IK-930, and submit IND application to FDA during the second half of 2021.
    • Nominate ERK5 inhibitor development candidate and initiate IND-enabling studies in the second half of 2021.
    • Complete IND-enabling studies for kynurenine degrading enzyme, IK-412, and submit IND to FDA during the second half of 2021.
    • Complete enrollment into the Phase 1b study of EP4 antagonist IK-007 in combination with pembrolizumab in patients with advanced or progressive MSS-CRC.

    First Quarter 2021 Financial Results

    As of March 31, 2021, the Company had cash and cash equivalents totaling $281.0 million, which will fund operations through 2023. Net cash used in operations was $13.2 million for the first quarter of 2021 compared to $9.9 million for the first quarter of 2020.

    Research and development expenses for the first quarter 2021 were $10.0 million, compared to $7.9 million for the first quarter 2020. The increase in R&D expense was primarily related to on-going IND-enabling studies and manufacturing development costs for IK-930, on-going IND-enabling studies and manufacturing development costs for IK-142, increased research activities of other discovery stage programs and increased personnel expenses due to increase in headcount.

    General and administrative expenses for the first quarter were $3.2 million, compared to $2.5 million for the first quarter 2020. The increase in G&A expense were primarily related to compensation expense due to an increase in headcount, as well as general increases in audit, legal and consulting expenses to support our transition to becoming a public company.

    Net loss for the first quarter 2021 was $9.7 million, compared to $6.9 million for the first quarter 2020, driven predominantly by increase in research and development expenses.

  4. Repare Therapeutics Inc. ("Repare" or the "Company") (NASDAQ:RPTX), a leading clinical-stage precision oncology company enabled by its proprietary synthetic lethality (SL) approach to the discovery and development of novel therapeutics, today announced the first patient has been dosed in the Company's Phase 1 clinical trial of RP-6306, a first-in-class small molecule product candidate targeting PKMYT1, which is a novel target that Repare discovered to be synthetic lethal with CCNE1 amplification and other genomic mutations to treat CCNE1-amplified, FBXW7-altered and other PKMYT1 inhibitor-sensitive cancers.

    "The dosing of the first patient in this RP-6306 trial marks a key milestone in Repare's development of targeted cancer therapeutics…

    Repare Therapeutics Inc. ("Repare" or the "Company") (NASDAQ:RPTX), a leading clinical-stage precision oncology company enabled by its proprietary synthetic lethality (SL) approach to the discovery and development of novel therapeutics, today announced the first patient has been dosed in the Company's Phase 1 clinical trial of RP-6306, a first-in-class small molecule product candidate targeting PKMYT1, which is a novel target that Repare discovered to be synthetic lethal with CCNE1 amplification and other genomic mutations to treat CCNE1-amplified, FBXW7-altered and other PKMYT1 inhibitor-sensitive cancers.

    "The dosing of the first patient in this RP-6306 trial marks a key milestone in Repare's development of targeted cancer therapeutics. We are pleased to have initiated this trial six months ahead of what we projected at our IPO launch last June," said Lloyd M. Segal, President and Chief Executive Officer of Repare. "Patients with tumors carrying CCNE1, FBXW7 and certain other genetic alterations we have identified as sensitive to PKMYT1 inhibition have few treatment options available, and the incidence of these cancers is rising. This Phase 1 trial will assess the safety and tolerability of RP-6306, as well as dosing schedule, to inform Repare's planned Phase 2 program."

    The Phase 1 multi-center clinical trial is expected to enroll approximately 70 patients with recurrent tumors characterized by specific genomic alterations predicted by Repare's SNIPRx platform to render sensitivity to RP-6306. The primary goal of the Phase 1 clinical trial is to assess preliminary safety and tolerability in patients and to establish the recommended Phase 2 dose and dosing schedule for RP-6306 for evaluation in further trials. Subject to completion and review of the Phase 1 clinical trial, the Company expects to advance RP-6306, both as monotherapy and in combination with chemotherapies and other treatment modalities, into proof-of-concept studies in 2022, targeting a variety of patient populations, including those with tumors with CCNE1 amplification, FBXW7 loss or other alterations identified through Repare's proprietary STEP2 screens.

    About RP-6306

    RP-6306 is a first-in-class, selective, orally available inhibitor of PKMYT1 that was discovered and developed entirely in-house by Repare. Through Repare's SNIPRx screen campaign for targets that are SL with CCNE1 amplification, the Company identified and validated this novel SL gene that has the characteristics of a therapeutic target. Repare has developed novel and selective inhibitors against PKMYT1, which demonstrated compelling pre-clinical anti-tumor activity alone and in combination with certain anticancer agents, and subsequently announced the advancement of a clinical candidate to this potential, first-in-class program.

    About Repare Therapeutics, Inc.
