    Recommended Phase 2 Dose and Schedule Selected for Further Evaluation of RMC-4630 as Monotherapy and RMC-4630 plus Cobimetinib Combination

    First-in-Class RAS(ON) Inhibitor Programs for Five Targets in Lead Optimization

    REDWOOD CITY, Calif., Nov. 12, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Revolution Medicines, Inc. (NASDAQ:RVMD), a clinical-stage precision oncology company focused on developing targeted therapies to inhibit frontier targets in RAS-addicted cancers, today announced its financial results for the third quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2020, and provided a corporate update.

    "Revolution Medicines is a leader in developing innovative medicines and treatment strategies on behalf of patients with RAS-addicted tumors. We are advancing a growing portfolio consisting of both direct RAS(ON) Inhibitors and RAS Companion Inhibitors designed to enable combination approaches, including RMC-4630 targeting SHP2, RMC-5552 targeting mTORC1, and inhibitors of SOS1," said Mark A. Goldsmith, M.D., Ph.D., chief executive officer and chairman of Revolution Medicines.

    "In our RAS Companion Inhibitor portfolio, we continue to make important strides with RMC-4630, our clinical stage inhibitor of SHP2.   We selected the recommended Phase 2 dose and schedule (RP2DS) for both our monotherapy trial (RMC-4630-01) and the RMC-4630/cobimetinib (Cotellic®) combination arm of the RMC-4630-02 clinical trial, and each trial will further evaluate the appropriate RP2DS in expansion cohorts of molecularly selected patients. As anticipated, we recently dosed a first patient in a new combination study of RMC-4630 with the third-generation EGFR inhibitor, osimertinib (Tagrisso®). We also entered into a new clinical collaboration with AstraZeneca to study RMC-4630 in combination with an emerging asset targeting KRASG12C from AstraZeneca's portfolio.

    "In addition, we accelerated growth of our RAS(ON) Inhibitor platform, which has produced a collection of potent, cell-active inhibitors of diverse oncogenic RAS variants responsible for the vast majority of RAS-addicted cancers.  Previously, we demonstrated significant anti-tumor effects of a representative potent and oral inhibitor of KRASG12C(ON). During the third quarter we confirmed the broad scope of our platform by demonstrating that representative KRASG12D(ON) inhibitors likewise induced tumor regressions in a preclinical model of human pancreatic cancer harboring the oncogenic KRASG12D mutation.   We have advanced our KRASG12C/NRASG12C(ON), KRASG12D(ON), KRASG13C(ON) and KRASG12V(ON) inhibitor programs into lead optimization."  

    R&D Highlights

    RAS Companion Inhibitors

    • Determined Recommended Phase 2 Dose and Schedule (RP2DS) for single agent RMC-4630 Completed dose escalation and selected 200 mg administered on a Day 1/Day 2 (D1D2) weekly schedule as the RP2DS. The company plans to evaluate single agent RMC-4630 at the RP2DS in an expansion cohort of patients with gynecologic tumors harboring NF1LOF mutations, in addition to a small safety/tolerability cohort representing a broader set of histotypes and RAS pathway genotypes.



    • Determined RP2DS for RMC-4630 in Combination with the MEK Inhibitor, Cobimetinib Completed dose escalation and selected RMC-4630 140 mg and cobimetinib 40 mg administered on a Day 1/Day 2 (D1D2) weekly schedule as the RP2DS. The company plans to further evaluate this combination at the RP2DS in expansion cohorts of patients with colorectal cancer harboring KRASG12V or KRASG12D mutations and others drawing from a broader set of histotypes and RAS pathway genotypes.



    • Interim Data Presented at ENA 2020 from Phase 1b/2 Clinical Trial Combining RMC-4630 with Cobimetinib Interim data reported by investigators support a dual intermittent dosing strategy for RMC-4630 and cobimetinib that appears tolerable and exceeds target plasma exposures for each drug based on preclinical models of RAS pathway-driven cancers that project potential clinical activity. Investigators also reported preliminary evidence of anti-tumor activity in patients with colorectal cancer driven by KRAS mutations.



    • RMC-4630 Multi-Cohort Phase 1/2 Clinical Program Expanding as Potential Backbone for Combination Therapies



      • Dosing and enrollment continue in the Amgen-sponsored Phase 1 study of RMC-4630 in combination with Amgen's KRASG12C(OFF) inhibitor, AMG 510, or sotorasib

      • Dosing and enrollment continue in the Sanofi-sponsored Phase 1 study of RMC-4630 in combination with the PD-1 inhibitor, pembrozilumab (Keytruda®
      • Initiated a study evaluating RMC-4630 in combination with the EGFR inhibitor, osimertinib (Tagrisso®)
      • Entered into a new clinical collaboration agreement with AstraZeneca to study RMC-4630 in combination with an emerging asset targeting KRASG12C from AstraZeneca's portfolio
    • Clinical Results Support Dual Mechanisms of Anti-Tumor Activity by RMC-4630: Tumor Cell-Intrinsic and Stimulation of Immune Response  Data reported by the company from its ongoing RMC-4630-01 trial provide clinical evidence that SHP2 inhibition may act by stimulating arms of the immune system as a second anti-tumor mechanism in addition to its tumor cell-intrinsic benefits. These observations provide further rationale for the ongoing clinical combination study with RMC-4630 and pembrozilumab by Sanofi, the company's SHP2 collaboration partner.

    RAS(ON) Inhibitors

    • First-In-Class RAS(ON) Inhibitor Platform – The company's proprietary tri-complex technology platform enables a highly differentiated approach to inhibiting RAS(ON) with potential biologic advantages. Revolution Medicines is developing a portfolio of compounds that it believes are the first and only RAS(ON) inhibitors to use this mechanism of action. The company has produced potent, cell-active RAS(ON) Inhibitors for variants driving the vast majority of RAS-addicted cancers.



    • Inhibitors for Five RAS(ON) Variants in Lead Optimization – KRASG12C/NRASG12C(ON), KRASG12D(ON), KRASG13C(ON), and KRASG12V(ON) inhibitors are in lead optimization, which include and expands on the company's initial four priority RAS(ON) targets. The company remains on track to nominate a first development candidate from this platform by the end of 2020.



    • Preclinical Tumor Regressions Induced by First-in-Class KRASG12D(ON) Inhibitors Data presented by the company at the RAS Targeted Drug Development conference demonstrated that the company's first-in-class KRASG12D(ON) inhibitors induced significant decreases in tumor volume in a xenograft model of human pancreatic cancer driven by a KRASG12D mutation. The KRASG12D genotype is of particularly high clinical interest as there are currently no approved targeted therapies for the treatment of cancers driven by this mutation, which is found in approximately 35% of pancreatic cancers and 15% of colorectal cancers in the U.S.

    Corporate Highlights

    • Completed Follow-On Financing  The company completed a follow-on equity public offering in July 2020.  The upsized financing raised gross proceeds of $179.4 million before deducting underwriting discounts, commissions and other offering expenses payable by Revolution Medicines, further strengthening its balance sheet to support multiple clinical milestones and extend the company's runway.

    Company Also Announces New Clinical Collaboration with AstraZeneca to Study RMC-4630 in Combination with an Emerging AstraZeneca Asset Targeting KRASG12C

    REDWOOD CITY, Calif., Oct. 24, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Revolution Medicines, Inc. (NASDAQ:RVMD), a clinical-stage precision oncology company developing targeted therapies to inhibit frontier targets in RAS-addicted cancers, today reported interim data from the company's ongoing Phase 1b/2 clinical trial (RMC-4630-02) evaluating the combination of RMC-4630 and cobimetinib (Cotellic®) in an oral presentation by Johanna C. Bendell, M.D., Sarah Cannon Research Institute, Nashville, TN in a plenary session at the EORTC-NCI-AACR 32nd Symposium on Molecular Targets and Cancer Therapeutics (ENA 2020). Interim results suggest that a dual intermittent dosing strategy for RMC-4630 and cobimetinib exceeds target plasma exposures for each drug based on preclinical models of RAS pathway-driven cancers that project potential clinical activity. The adverse event profile of the combination, which was consistent with expected on-pathway effects of both drugs, was tolerable under the dual intermittent dosing schedule.

    The ongoing Phase 1b/2 RMC-4630-02 trial includes an open-label, dose-escalation and dose-expansion study arm designed to evaluate the safety, tolerability, pharmacokinetic, and pharmacodynamic profiles of RMC-4630 and cobimetinib in adult patients with relapsed/refractory solid tumors that harbor specific genomic RAS pathway mutations. The results of this study will inform Revolution Medicines' pending selection of a recommended Phase 2 dose and schedule for the drug combination to be evaluated further in one or more expansion cohorts of patients selected by tumor genotype and histotype that are expected to initiate in 2020.

    While evaluation of efficacy outcomes is not a primary objective of the dose escalation portion of the RMC-4630-02 study, investigators reported preliminary evidence of anti-tumor activity in patients with colorectal cancer driven by KRAS mutations. As of the data cut-off date, tumor volume reduction was observed in three of seven patients with colorectal cancers harboring KRAS mutations who were treated at the highest dose of RMC-4630, including one unconfirmed partial response in a patient carrying a KRASG12D mutation.

    Expansion of Combination Program

    Revolution Medicines also announced that it has signed an agreement with AstraZeneca (NASDAQ:AZN) to enter a clinical collaboration to study RMC-4630 in combination with an emerging asset from AstraZeneca's preclinical efforts targeting KRASG12C. Under the agreement, AstraZeneca will sponsor and conduct this combination study and Revolution Medicines will provide clinical supply of RMC-4630.

    Separately, Revolution Medicines and Amgen are collaborators in an ongoing Amgen-sponsored clinical trial studying RMC-4630 in combination with AMG 510 (soratinib), an investigational KRASG12C(OFF) inhibitor.

    "Drug combinations are likely to be critical for defeating inherent drug resistance mechanisms exploited by RAS-addicted cancers, and both the data presented at ENA 2020 and the new clinical collaboration announced today represent important steps forward in developing RMC-4630 as a backbone of such combination therapies. The ENA presentation focuses on cancers with RAS mutations lacking a mutant-selective inhibitor, and suggest that RMC-4630 and cobimetinib can be combined through an innovative dual intermittent dosing schedule to drive anti-tumor activity in advanced colorectal cancers," said Mark A. Goldsmith, M.D., Ph.D., chief executive officer and chairman of Revolution Medicines. "We are currently refining a recommended Phase 2 dose and schedule to evaluate further for safety, tolerability and anti-tumor activity in dedicated expansion patient cohort(s)."

    "We are also excited to collaborate with AstraZeneca to study RMC-4630 in combination with an emerging asset from AstraZeneca's pipeline targeting KRASG12C(OFF) for tumors carrying a KRASG12C mutation, a planned study that represents an expansion of our commitment to RMC-4630 as a backbone for combinations with RAS-mutant inhibitors. We also continue growing our exciting pipeline of direct inhibitors of oncogenic RAS(ON) variants, including our direct inhibitors of KRASG12C(ON) and KRASG12D(ON) currently in lead optimization."

    RMC-4630 and cobimetinib are targeted inhibitors of oncogenic proteins at distinct positions within the RAS signaling cascade that is frequently exploited by human cancers and may develop adaptive resistance to single agent treatment. RMC-4630 is a potent and orally bioavailable small molecule designed to selectively inhibit the activity of SHP2, an upstream cellular protein that plays a key role in modulating cell growth by transmitting signals from receptor tyrosine kinases to RAS. Cobimetinib, marketed in the U.S. by Genentech, a member of the Roche group, inhibits the activity of MEK, a downstream effector of RAS that affects cell survival and growth. Cobimetinib is approved in the U.S. for the treatment of patients with BRAFV600E or BRAFV600K mutation-positive unresectable or metastatic melanoma in combination with vemurafenib (Zelboraf®). Cobimetinib is provided by Genentech for the RMC-4630-02 study under a clinical collaboration agreement with Revolution Medicines.   

    About RMC-4630

    RMC-4630 is currently being evaluated in a Phase 1 monotherapy clinical trial (RMC-4630-01) for a range of tumor types featuring specific, molecularly-defined oncogenic mutations, a Phase 1b/2 trial (RMC-4630-02) in combination with cobimetinib in patients with relapsed/refractory solid tumors displaying specific genomic mutations, a Phase 1b study (CodeBreaK 101) in combination with AMG 510 in patients with advanced solid tumors harboring the KRASG12C mutation, and a Phase 1 study in combination with pembrozilumab in patients with advanced malignancies.

    The SHP2 inhibitor program, including RMC-4630, is the focus of an exclusive global research, development and commercialization agreement with Sanofi.

(NASDAQ:RVMD), a clinical-stage precision oncology company developing targeted therapies to inhibit frontier targets in RAS-addicted cancers, today announced that interim data from the company's ongoing Phase 1b/2 clinical trial (RMC-4630-02) evaluating the combination of RMC-4630 and cobimetinib (Cotellic®) will be reported in an oral presentation in a plenary session at the upcoming EORTC-NCI-AACR 32nd Symposium on Molecular Targets and Cancer Therapeutics (ENA 2020) being held virtually October 24-25, 2020.

    The ongoing Phase 1b/2 RMC-4630-02 trial is an open-label, dose-escalation and dose-expansion study designed to evaluate the safety, tolerability, pharmacokinetic, and pharmacodynamic profiles of RMC-4630 and cobimetinib in adult patients with relapsed/refractory solid tumors that harbor specific genomic mutations. The study tested several dosing regimens, including intermittent RMC-4630 plus daily or intermittent cobimetinib. Preliminary data to be presented at ENA 2020 will focus on safety, tolerability and pharmacokinetic findings from combination dosing regimens.

    "We are gratified that data from our ongoing combination trial of RMC-4630 and cobimetinib were selected for presentation at ENA 2020. Drug combinations will likely be critical to defeating inherent drug resistance mechanisms exploited by RAS-addicted cancers," said Steve Kelsey, M.D., president of research and development at Revolution Medicines. "We remain keenly focused on testing the clinical hypothesis that RMC-4630 may be useful as a backbone for various combination treatments designed for different cancers with distinct molecular profiles."

    • Live Virtual Q&A: To follow completion of Plenary Session 1 presentations

    RMC-4630 and cobimetinib are targeted inhibitors of oncogenic proteins at distinct positions within the RAS signaling cascade that is frequently exploited by human cancers and may develop adaptive resistance to single agent treatment. RMC-4630 is a potent and orally bioavailable small molecule designed to selectively inhibit the activity of SHP2, an upstream cellular protein that plays a key role in modulating cell growth by transmitting signals from receptor tyrosine kinases to RAS. Cobimetinib, marketed in the U.S. by Genentech, a member of the Roche group, inhibits the activity of MEK, a downstream effector of RAS that affects cell survival and growth. Cobimetinib is approved in the U.S. for the treatment of patients with BRAFV600E or BRAFV600K mutation-positive unresectable or metastatic melanoma in combination with vemurafenib (Zelboraf®).  

    About RMC-4630

    RMC-4630 is currently being evaluated in a Phase 1 monotherapy clinical trial (RMC-4630-01) for a range of tumor types featuring specific, molecularly-defined oncogenic mutations, a Phase 1b/2 trial (RMC-4630-02) in combination with cobimetinib in patients with relapsed/refractory solid tumors displaying specific genomic mutations, a Phase 1b study (CodeBreaK 101) in combination with AMG 510 in patients with advanced solid tumors harboring the KRASG12C mutation, and a Phase 1 study in combination with pembrozilumab in patients with advanced malignancies.

    The SHP2 inhibitor program, including RMC-4630, is the focus of an exclusive global research, development and commercialization agreement with Sanofi.

    Presentation at 2nd Annual RAS-Targeted Drug Development Conference Highlights First Publicly Reported Data for Inhibitors of Notorious Cancer Protein KRASG12D(ON)

    REDWOOD CITY, Calif., Sept. 16, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Revolution Medicines, Inc. (NASDAQ:RVMD), a clinical-stage precision oncology company focused on developing targeted therapies to inhibit frontier targets in RAS-addicted cancers, today reported data demonstrating that its first-in-class KRASG12D(ON) inhibitors induced tumor regressions in a preclinical model of human pancreatic cancer carrying an oncogenic KRASG12D mutation. This first public disclosure of results showing anti-tumor activity for potent inhibitors of the notorious KRASG12D(ON) cancer protein was made by Steve Kelsey, M.D., president of research and development, in a presentation entitled "Approaches to Inhibiting RAS Driven Tumors Beyond KRASG12C" at the 2nd Annual RAS-Targeted Drug Development Conference. 

    Revolution Medicines uses its proprietary tri-complex technology platform to create innovative compounds designed to inhibit the active, GTP-bound form of RAS, or RAS(ON), proteins. The company previously reported representative preclinical profiles of its potent inhibitors of another common cancer driver, KRASG12C(ON). The newly presented data demonstrated that its KRASG12D(ON) inhibitors induced significant decreases in tumor volume in a xenograft model of human pancreatic cancer driven by a KRASG12D mutation. This anti-tumor activity was observed across multiple dose levels, and all dose levels were well tolerated. The KRASG12D(ON) program is currently in lead optimization.

    The KRASG12D genotype is of particularly high clinical interest as there are currently no approved targeted therapies for the treatment of cancers driven by this mutation, which is found in approximately 35 percent of pancreatic cancer cases and 15 percent of colorectal cancers in the U.S. The company continues its efforts to discover and develop inhibitors of multiple oncogenic mutants of RAS proteins, which in aggregate are believed to drive approximately 30% of all human cancers in the U.S. Earlier in 2020 the company named KRASG12C, KRASG12D, KRASG13C and NRASG12C as its four initial priority RAS(ON) targets.

    "It is gratifying for our R&D organization to present this exciting demonstration of preclinical anti-cancer activity of compounds targeting the oncogenic KRASG12D(ON) protein. Advancement of our KRASG12D(ON) inhibitor program into the lead optimization stage represents an important corporate milestone, and highlights the substantial progress that we continue to make across our broad-based mutant RAS(ON) inhibitor effort," said Mark A. Goldsmith, M.D., Ph.D., chief executive officer and chairman of Revolution Medicines. "We believe that targeted inhibitors directed to mutant forms of RAS that drive various cancers, and in particular the RAS(ON) form of these proteins, represent a potential therapeutic strategy for serving important unmet needs on behalf of patients battling RAS-driven cancers."
