SYNDAX ENTERS CLINICAL TRIAL COLLABORATION IN CANCER IMMUNOTHERAPY COMBINING ENTINOSTAT AND ATEZOLIZUMAB
WALTHAM, Mass., August 26, 2015 – Syndax Pharmaceuticals, Inc., a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company focused on developing entinostat as a combination therapy in
multiple cancer indications, announced today that it has entered into a clinical collaboration with Genentech, a member of the Roche Group, to evaluate the safety, tolerability and preliminary
efficacy of Syndax’s entinostat, an oral small molecule that targets immune regulatory cells (myeloid-derived suppressor cells (MDSCs) and regulatory T cells (Tregs)), in combination with
Genentech’s atezolizumab (MPDL3280A), a fully humanized monoclonal antibody targeting protein programmed cell death ligand 1 (PD-L1), in patients with triple-negative breast cancer.
Triple-negative breast cancer is estimated to account for 10-20% of all diagnosed breast cancers and is characterized by a lack of expression of estrogen receptor (ER-), progesterone
receptor (PR-) and HER2 (HER2-) on the breast cancer cells.
