4SC AG: First Patient Enrolled in DONIMI Study Evaluating Domatinostat in the Neoadjuvant Setting in Melanoma

).

Jason Loveridge, Ph.D., CEO of 4SC: "Such a very rapid start to DONIMI signals a high level of interest in both the neoadjuvant setting as well as the combination of domatinostat and checkpoint blockade in this population and we look forward to further patients enrolling in 2020."

Prof. Dr. Christian Blank, NKI: "We are delighted having enrolled the first patient into the DONIMI study - after less than one year's preparation, this is an extraordinary achievement. As the major oncology conferences in 2019 have clearly highlighted neoadjuvant immunotherapy as one of the most interesting areas of clinical research, we are excited to investigate domatinostat in combination with checkpoint inhibitor in the neoadjuvant setting in melanoma."

In 2017, the European Academy of Cancer Sciences designated the NKI a Comprehensive Cancer Centre of Excellence for translational research. The NKI maintains an important role as a national and international centre of scientific and clinical expertise, development and training. Research focus areas are molecular biology, immunotherapy, personalized medicine, image-guided interventions and cancer survivorship.

About domatinostat

Domatinostat is an orally administered small molecule Class I selective HDAC inhibitor with a unique mode of action that was designed to strengthen the body's own anti-tumor immune response. Domatinostat also influences the tumor microenvironment facilitating infiltration of immune cells into the tumor and making it more visible to the immune system.

Domatinostat has been investigated in a Phase I study with 24 heavily pretreated patients with several types of advanced hematologic cancers and was well tolerated. Positive signs of anti-tumor efficacy were also observed; with one complete remission (28 months) and one partial responder (8 months).

In addition to its therapeutic potential in cancer monotherapy, 4SC is evaluating domatinostat's capacity as a partner in combination therapies, specifically in the immuno-oncology area. In this respect, 4SC initiated a Phase Ib/II study of domatinostat in combination with the anti-PD-1 checkpoint inhibitor pembrolizumab in patients with advanced-stage melanoma (SENSITIZE) and data from the first part of the study was presented at ESMO in Barcelona. A second Phase II study of domatinostat in combination with the anti-PD-L1 checkpoint inhibitor avelumab in patients with advanced-stage microsatellite-stable gastrointestinal cancer is being conducted by Prof. David Cunningham of The Royal Marsden NHS Foundation Trust, London, UK (EMERGE).

About neoadjuvant treatment

Neoadjuvant treatment is given as a first treatment step in patients with locally advanced tumors to shrink the tumor before the main treatment, which is usually surgery, is given. Surgical treatment carries the risks of morbidities and potential complications that could be lasting. In addition, patients with locally advanced tumors, i.e. patients with resectable stage III melanoma continue to have a high risk of relapse and death despite the use of standard adjuvant therapy. Neoadjuvant therapy has the potential to significantly improve the clinical outcome of these patients, particularly in the era of newer and effective targeted and immunotherapeutic agents.
