About ORY 1001

ORY-1001 (RG6016), Oryzon's first clinical asset, is a highly potent and selective Lysine Specific Demethylase-1 (LSD1) inhibitor for the treatment of leukemia and other malignancies, currently in Phase I/IIA in Acute leukemia, that was partnered with Roche in a global deal in 2014. Beyond hematological malignancies, LSD1 inhibition has been proposed as a valid therapeutic approach in some solid tumors such as Small cell lung cancer (SCLC). SCLC represents 15% of lung neoplasms and is an aggressive malignancy with limited treatment options. Survival in refractory settings is typically less than one year, exemplifying the need for more effective therapeutics. Recent published results suggest that epigenetic modulation mediated by LSD1 inhibition may be effective to treat SCLC.
