We apply our proprietary AP3 patient selection platform to develop targeted cancer therapies with high probability of clinical success. Our clinical pipeline is focused on advanced assets targeting the DNA Damage Response (DDR) and cell cycle regulation with demonstrated, durable single agent activity in major tumors but where traditional patient selection is challenging. Likewise, our preclinical drug programs are against DDR targets with no obvious genetic patient selection path. Our OncoSignature® patient selection method will be used for patient responder enrichment to enable successful clinical development.

Acrivon Pipeline

Acrivon’s Lead Program ACR-368 (also known as Prexasertib, in-licensed from Lilly), is a clinically-advanced, second-generation inhibitor of the DNA Damage Response checkpoint kinases, CHK1 and CHK2. ACR-368 has demonstrated durable monotherapy activity, including complete responses, in a proportion of patients with platinum-resistant ovarian cancer* and squamous cell cancer ‡. Using OncoSignature® screening we have identified 2 additional ACR-368-sensitive cancers not previously treated with the drug. Our two drug discovery programs target critical regulators of the DNA Damage Response and the cell cycle.
