Lantern Pharma’s Proprietary A.I. Platform Surpasses 450 Million Data Points Accelerating Oncology Drug Development and Drug Response Prediction
Lantern Pharma, a clinical stage biotechnology company focused on leveraging artificial intelligence (“A.I.”), machine learning and genomic data to streamline the drug development process and to identify the patients that will benefit from its targeted oncology therapies, announced today that it surpassed the milestone of 450 million curated data points being utilized in its proprietary A.I. and machine learning-powered platform, RADR® (Response Algorithm for Drug Positioning and Rescue).

RADR® leverages genomic, transcriptomic, clinical and drug sensitivity data points across more than 145 drug-tumor interactions to predict the potential response cancer patients will have to potential drugs, therefore enabling a more personalized approach to therapy that is aimed at better outcomes. Lantern is establishing collaborations and partnerships to expand the functionality of RADR®, including algorithms that can operate 200 to 300 percent faster than its existing algorithms, enabling the company to develop robust gene signatures that can be used to guide patient enrollment in trials and as a companion diagnostic (CDx). During the most recent data enrichment campaign, Lantern focused on significantly increasing the depth and amount of data for: non-small cell lung cancer, ovarian cancer, glioblastoma, and gliomas. Reaching this milestone of over 450 million curated data points for oncology drug development will bring greater precision and speed in helping Lantern with its objective of personalizing oncology therapy with reduced risk and cost.

Sanofi's hopes for rare blood disease candidate sutimlimab on hold after FDA blasts 3rd-party manufacturer

Sanofi | November 17, 2020

When a new drug goes in front of the FDA for consideration, a lot of moving pieces must be in place for a successful review—manufacturing standards included. That didn't happen for Sanofi, which is pressing pause on a rare disease candidate after the FDA found issues at a contract manufacturer's plant. The FDA blasted a third-party manufacturer of Sanofi's rare blood disease drug sutimlimab in a complete response letter, citing "certain deficiencies" at the contractor's site, the French drugmaker said Friday. A Sanofi spokeswoman declined to specify who the manufacturer cited in the FDA's letter was or what the nature of the deficiencies were. With its application on hold, Sanofi said it would work with its manufacturer and the FDA to resolve the issues in a "timely manner." The drugmaker didn't say how quickly it expected to turn around a new application. The untimely feedback from the FDA dims C1 inhibitor sutimlimab's chances in cold agglutinin disease (CAD), a rare blood disease characterized by anemia, fatigue and other symptoms.

Cancer Prevention Pharmaceuticals Submits New Drug Application to the FDA for CPP-1X/sul for Treatment of Familial Adenomatous Polyposis

Cancer Prevention Pharmaceuticals, CPP-1X/sul | June 29, 2020

Cancer Prevention Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (CPP), a private biotech company developing novel therapeutics to prevent cancer and other diseases, announced that it has submitted a New Drug Application (NDA) to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) seeking accelerated approval for CPP-1X/sul for treatment of adults with familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP). FAP is a rare genetic disease that if left untreated progresses to colorectal cancer in nearly 100% of patients. The clinical development of CPP-1X/sul was designed to establish this fixed dose combination product as a potential pharmaco-preventive drug treatment specifically for FAP patients. “The NDA submission for our lead drug candidate, CPP-1X/sul, represents a significant milestone for FAP patients and their families,” said CPP CEO Jeff Jacob. “For most FAP patients, current medical practice involves a lifetime of periodic monitoring as well as highly invasive surgical procedures. If approved, CPP-1X/sul could provide an alternative to surgery for many patients, significantly improving their quality of life.”
