Infinity informed that IPI-145 is its oral inhibitor of phosphoinositide-3-kinase (PI3K)-delta and PI3K-gamma. "The preclinical data reported today, as well as early clinical data in aggressive non-Hodgkin lymphoma, further underscore the potential of IPI-145 to treat a broad range of blood cancers," stated Julian Adams, Ph.D., President of R&D at Infinity. Adams added, "IPI-145 has already shown clinical activity in indolent non-Hodgkin lymphoma and chronic lymphocytic leukemia, and we are advancing IPI-145 in late-stage development in these two indications. The preclinical data reported today are expanding our understanding of the mechanism of action of IPI-145 and the roles of PI3K-delta and PI3K-gamma, which will help inform further clinical development."
