Advancing a novel approach to target tumor suppressor p53 to treat patients with a wide variety of cancers
Engaging the body's natural defense against cancer
Aileron Therapeutics is a clinical stage company discovering and developing novel medicines for the treatment of cancer and for cancer supportive care by targeting high value and historically undruggable intracellular targets using a proprietary platform of stabilized cell-permeating peptides. Our lead product candidate, ALRN-6924, is a first-in-class dual MDM2/MDMX inhibitor that has been tested in hematologic cancers and is currently being evaluated in a Phase 2 clinical trial in combination with Pfizer’s palbociclib (Ibrance®) for the treatment of MDM2-amplified advanced solid cancers, and in an upcoming Phase 1b/2 clinical trial to evaluate ALRN-6924 as a myelopreservative agent to protect against chemotherapy-induced toxicities.
Emerging ALRN-6924 clinical and substantial preclinical data support its use across multiple cancer types as a combination therapy with targeted agents, chemotherapies, and immuno-oncology drugs. Aileron Therapeutics is exploring collaboration opportunities regarding ALRN-6924 and for its research in areas such as targeted protein degradation, HIF1-α, and the Bcl-2 family of cancer targets.
