Salarius’ clinical development pipeline is led by Seclidemstat, a potent reversible inhibitor of the LSD1 enzyme. Seclidemstat is already the subject of a Phase 1/2 study in Ewing sarcoma, a rare pediatric bone cancer, for which it has been granted Fast Track Designation by the FDA, as well as Orphan and Rare Pediatric Disease designations. A second Phase 1/2 study targets advanced solid tumors (AST), including prostate, breast and ovarian cancers. Salarius expects to begin releasing data from both studies in mid-2020.
