Syros Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NASDAQ:SYRS), a leader in the development of medicines that control the expression of genes, today announced that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has granted orphan drug designation (ODD) to SY-5609 for the treatment of pancreatic cancer. SY-5609, a highly selective and potent oral cyclin-dependent kinase 7 (CDK7) inhibitor, is currently being evaluated in combination with chemotherapy for the treatment of patients with relapsed metastatic pancreatic cancer.

“This orphan drug designation underscores the urgency of our efforts to develop SY-5609 for patients with pancreatic cancer, one of the most devastating and difficult to treat malignancies,” said David A. Roth, M.D., Chief Medical Officer of Syros. “Based on the early data we reported last year, which demonstrated single-agent activity in heavily pre-treated patients, as well as compelling preclinical data and a strong mechanistic rationale, we believe SY-5609 could deliver meaningful benefit to people with pancreatic cancer, whose tumors have otherwise eluded therapeutic intervention. We look forward to sharing initial data from the safety lead-in portion of our ongoing Phase 1 study later this year.”.
