Repare Therapeutics Presents Initial Clinical Data from the Phase 1/2 TRESR and ATTACC Trials Evaluating Camonsertib in Combination with Three PARP Inhibitors at the 2023 AACR Annual Meeting

Camonsertib PARPi combinations demonstrated 48% CBR in patients with unmet medical needs, across tumor types, and regardless of PARPi partner or platinum resistance, with a favorable safety and tolerability profile

Combination results showed most benefit in late-line ovarian cancer demonstrating 32% overall response, 58% CBR and mPFS of approximately 7 months

Early ctDNA molecular responses in 66% of evaluable patients confirms antitumor activity of low dose intermittent PARPi + ATRi therapy

Repare Therapeutics Inc. (“Repare” or the “Company”) (Nasdaq: RPTX), a leading clinical-stage precision oncology company, today presented initial data from its ongoing Phase 1/2 TRESR clinical trial evaluating camonsertib (RP-3500/RG6526, partnered with Roche), a potent and selective oral small molecule inhibitor of ATR (Ataxia-Telangiectasia and Rad3-related protein kinase), in combination with a poly (ADP-ribose) polymerase inhibitor (PARPi), talazoparib, and initial data from its ongoing Phase 1b/2 ATTACC clinical trial, evaluating camonsertib in combination with two additional PARPis, niraparib or olaparib, in patients with advanced solid tumors.

The data involving novel combinations of low doses of camonsertib and three different PARPis are featured today at the 2023 AACR Annual Meeting in a clinical plenary session titled, “Safety and efficacy of three PARP inhibitors (PARPi) combined with the ataxia telangiectasia- and Rad3-related kinase inhibitor (ATRi) camonsertib in patients (pts) with solid tumors harboring DNA damage response (DDR) alterations” (abstract presentation number CT018). This study population comprised patients with a broad range of historically difficult to treat tumors, including patients with platinum-resistant tumors, patients who had either recurred or progressed during or after treatment with PARPis, and patients who had developed known BRCA-reversion mutations.

“We see promise in the camonsertib-PARPi combinations when administered concomitantly, at low doses across tumor types, especially in recurrent ovarian cancer given that nearly all had recurred after prior PARPi treatment. We are particularly encouraged by the depth of response and duration of treatment,” said Maria Koehler, MD, PhD, Chief Medical Officer of Repare. “Dose optimization to refine the combinatorial dose in additional tumor-specific expansions beyond ovarian within our ATTACC study is ongoing as part of our collaboration with Roche.”

“We previously established a promising safety and early efficacy profile of camonsertib as a monotherapy and this year’s data at AACR further support camonsertib as a partner for combinational regimens and provides a clear rationale for further development of this compound,” said Lloyd M. Segal, President and Chief Executive Officer of Repare. “Notably, the circulating tumor DNA (ctDNA) data showed a strong correlation with the degree of tumor shrinkage and duration of disease control, and provide a mechanistic explanation for the observed durable clinical benefit in heavily pretreated patients, beyond the natural history of the disease. We look forward to refining our dose optimization efforts and efficacy assessment in tumor specific expansions. This data remains consistent with what we were anticipating at the time of entering our partnership with Roche and we are excited to continue this important clinical development together.”

Key Initial Findings from the TRESR Phase 1/2 and ATTACC 1b/2 PARPi Combination Studies:

TRESR (NCT04497116) is a first-in-human, multi-center, open-label Phase 1/2 dose-escalation and expansion study, designed to establish the recommended Phase 2 dose and schedule, evaluate safety and pharmacokinetics and identify preliminary anti-tumor activity associated with camonsertib, given alone and in combination with talazoparib or in combination with gemcitabine.

ATTACC (NCT04972110) is a first-in-human, multi-center, open-label Phase 1b/2 dose-escalation and expansion study, designed to evaluate safety and pharmacokinetics and identify preliminary anti-tumor activity associated with camonsertib in combination with niraparib or olaparib.

The clinical plenary session described initial combination Phase 1/2 results from 107 patients, of which 90 patients were evaluable for efficacy treated at least 13 weeks prior to the data cutoff of February 27, 2023.

Key highlights from the data presented at the 2023 AACR Annual Meeting include:

  • Camonsertib combination resulted in durable clinical benefit across tumor types and different genomic alterations, regardless of choice of PARPi and presence of platinum resistance. Overall clinical benefit rate (CBR) for all patients was 48%. Patients with platinum-resistant tumors had an overall response rate (ORR) of 12% and CBR of 49%, and benefited similarly to non-platinum-resistant tumors (ORR 13%, CBR 46%).
  • Compelling results were observed particularly in patients with advanced ovarian cancer (n = 19). In these patients, overall response was 32%, CBR was 58% and median progression-free survival (mPFS) was approximately 7 months with treatment >16 weeks and ongoing in 9 patients.
  • Early ctDNA molecular responses in 66% (31/47) of evaluable patients confirms antitumor activity of low dose, intermittent PARPi + ATRi therapy. The molecular response rate (MRR) was significantly higher in patients with clinical benefit (83%) compared to those without (48%; p=0.015), confirming treatment effect. Molecular responses were observed in patients with prior PARPi exposure (57%) and platinum resistance (64%).
  • Camonsertib combinations appear to be well tolerated. Dose limiting toxicity (DLTs) in 68 patients treated with the proposed combination doses were related to myelotoxicity only (Grade 3+ anemia 3%, thrombocytopenia 6%, neutropenia 7%, and febrile neutropenia 3%). No prophylactic growth factors were required when administering the PARPis at evaluated doses.
