Blueprint Medicines announces updated data from Phase 1 ARROW clinical trial

Blueprint Medicines announced the presentation of updated data from the ongoing Phase 1 ARROW clinical trial of BLU-667, an investigational precision therapy targeting RET alterations, including resistance mutations. The new results showed that BLU-667 was highly active and well-tolerated in patients with advanced RET-altered medullary thyroid cancer and papillary thyroid cancer, with increased activity observed with higher dose levels and longer treatment durations. The reported data showed 90% of evaluable patients with MTC and PTC had radiographic tumor reductions, regardless of RET alteration type or prior multi-kinase inhibitor therapy. In addition, the response rate was 62% in patients with MTC treated once daily with BLU-667 at doses of 300 to 400 mg for at least 24 weeks. In the MTC and PTC populations, all responders across dose levels and all patients treated at 400 mg QD remain on study. Safety results were consistent with prior data, and the majority of adverse events were Grade 1. These results were as of a data cutoff date of September 14, 2018 and were reported in an oral presentation at The 88th Annual Meeting of the American Thyroid Association. Based on the encouraging data reported to date, Blueprint Medicines has expanded enrollment targets for the ARROW trial to further evaluate the safety and efficacy of BLU-667 in a broader patient population and, ultimately, to support potential registration. The data presented included all patients enrolled in the Phase 1 ARROW clinical trial as of May 9, 2018 and included follow-up on these patients through the data cutoff date of September 14, 2018. Of the 69 patients who had been treated with BLU-667 in the dose escalation and expansion portions of the trial, 42 had RET-altered thyroid cancer, including 37 with MTC and five with PTC. In the dose escalation portion, patients were treated at dose levels ranging from 30 mg to 600 mg QD or up to 300 mg twice daily. In the expansion portion, patients were treated at the recommended phase 2 dose of 400 mg QD. As of the data cutoff date, 35 patients with MTC and four patients with PTC were evaluable for response assessment by Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors version 1.1. Overall, 90% of MTC and PTC patients with measurable target lesions had radiographic tumor reductions. In patients with MTC, response assessments showed increased clinical activity with higher dose levels and longer treatment durations. Across all evaluable MTC patients, the overall response rate was 49%, including one patient with a confirmed complete response and 16 patients with a partial response. In patients with MTC treated with 300 to 400 mg QD for at least 24 weeks, the response rate was 62%, including one patient with a confirmed CR and seven patients with a confirmed PR. In patients with PTC, two of four evaluable patients had a confirmed PR, and all evaluable patients with PTC had radiographic tumor shrinkage. The data also showed encouraging evidence of durable activity. All patients with MTC and PTC who responded to BLU-667 remain on treatment as of the data cutoff date. In addition, all patients treated at 400 mg QD are continuing on therapy. Patients with the longest treatment durations remain on therapy for more than 15 months. Anti-tumor activity was observed regardless of prior MKI therapy or RET alteration. The reported data showed that across 69 patients, BLU-667 was well-tolerated as of the data cutoff date. Most AEs were Grade 1, and only two patients discontinued therapy due to a treatment-related AE - Grade 3 increased alanine aminotransferase in a patient with liver metastases and Grade 2 pneumonitis.

Piper recommends Deciphera into systemic mastocytosis data
Piper Jaffray analyst Christopher Raymond keeps an Overweight rating on shares of Deciphera Pharmaceuticals (DCPH) with a $50 price target following a deep dive into the systemic mastocytosis treatment space and the potential for DCC-2618 to play a meaningful role in the disease. The analyst continues to recommend purchase of Deciphera into the systemic mastocytosis data for DCC-2618 early next year. Given what's been presented before between Novartis' (NVS) midostaurin and Blueprint Medicines' (BPMC) avapritinib, Raymond thinks an overall response rate of greater than 50% with a continued clean safety profile should be considered a win for DCC-2618. He models for DCC-2618 systemic mastocytosis revenue of $44M, $151M, and $290M for 2023 through 2025, respectively. The analyst remains a buyer of Deciphera shares into the Q1 of 2019 data.

Loxo RET inhibitor still looks superior to Blueprint's, says Piper Jaffray
Loxo Oncology (LOXO) provided an update of the Phase I/II Libretto study of LOXO-292, the company's RET inhibitor and the vast majority of the current valuation, Piper Jaffray analyst Tyler Van Buren tells investors in a research note. While the overall response rate dropped slightly from 77% to 68% in more patients, it still appears superior to Blueprint Medicines' (BPMC) competing BLU-667, which has thus far demonstrated a 47% response rate in a similar patient population, the analyst contends. Van Buren adds that he's unconcerned by the two new grade three adverse events reported. He believes there "may very well" be upside to his current $1.5B peak sales estimate by the mid-2020s. The analyst reiterates an Overweight rating on Loxo Oncology with a $200 price target.

Loxo data not 'transformational,' but keeps inspiring confidence, says Stifel
Stifel analyst Stephen Willey said the incremental follow-up data from Loxo Oncology's (LOXO) LIBRETTO-001 trial isn't "transformational," but it does confirm his confidence in the establishment of a high competitive hurdle for LOXO-292, which he sees being a "best-in-class" and first-to-market asset in a $1B+ market. He remains confident LOXO-292 is the superior asset, but acknowledges the anticipation of Blueprint Medicines' (BPMC) updated BLU-667 data at some point in late-FY18 to early-FY19 could serve as a bit of headwind on Loxo shares nearer to that data release. Willey keeps a Buy rating and $217 price target on Loxo shares.
