The RP2D of ivaltinostat (250 mg/m2) was determined by the Safety Review Committee (SRC) following a thorough safety data review from 3 cohorts of increasing dose levels of ivaltinostat in combination with a fixed dose of capecitabine. The SRC has unanimously recommended proceeding to Phase 2, marking a significant milestone, effective immediately, the study is open for the enrollment of patients.


In Phase 2, metastatic PDAC patients who show no evidence of disease progression after an initial treatment with FOLFIRINOX will receive either combination therapy or capecitabine monotherapy. The primary endpoint is progression free survival.


Dr. Gene Cho, Vice President of Global Strategic Planning at CG Pharmaceuticals, expressed his excitement, "I am thrilled and honored to share this important study milestone and witness the commencement of Phase 2, with an enrollment target of 52 patients. We extend our heartfelt gratitude to our investigators, partners, and, most importantly, our patients for their invaluable participation in this critical study."

The study abstract has been accepted by the ASCO GI and will be presented on January 19, 2024, San Francisco, California.
