Bicycle Therapeutics Announces Interim BT8009 Phase I Clinical Trial Results at the 2022 AACR Annual Meeting
- 50% confirmed overall response rate, including one (13%) confirmed complete response in eight urothelial cancer patients dosed at 5.0mg/m2 weekly
- Median duration of response not yet reached in the 2.5mg/m2 and 5.0mg/m2 weekly cohorts; four of five responders in these cohorts still on therapy after at least 24 weeks
- Tolerability profile maintained over time, with low incidence of skin, ocular and neurological toxicities showing potential for differentiation from antibody-based approaches

“Since our initial BT8009 Phase I/II trial interim results last year, we are encouraged to see BT8009’s promising profile endure over time. Over the last six months, the preliminary anti-tumor findings have been confirmed, the initial responses have deepened and remained durable, and the tolerability profile remains unchanged,” said
“As previously hypothesized, we believe that the differentiated pharmacokinetic profile of BTCs has the potential to deliver improved outcomes for patients and it is pleasing to see these clinical data mature and with it, the promise for a potentially industry-leading product profile,” said
- Four response evaluable UC patients were dosed at 2.5mg/m2 weekly. Among these four patients, one patient was observed to have tumor reductions constituting a confirmed partial response (PR) and two patients were observed to have stable disease (SD), reflecting a 25% overall response rate (ORR) and 75% disease control rate (DCR) in patients in this cohort.
- Eight response evaluable UC patients were dosed at 5.0mg/m2 weekly. Among these eight patients, four patients were observed to have a confirmed complete response (CR) or PR, including one patient with a CR and three patients with a PR, and two patients with SD, reflecting a 50% ORR and a 75% DCR in UC patients for this cohort. Prior to enrollment, all patients in this cohort had previously received at least two prior lines of therapy, with a median of three.
The median duration of response has not yet been reached in either the 2.5 mg/m2 or 5.0mg/m2 cohort. Four of the five responders have ongoing Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors (RECIST) tumor responses. As of the
March 7, 2022data cutoff date, all four of these patients have a treatment duration of at least 24 weeks and all four remain on therapy.
- Tolerability profile remains consistent with earlier results from this trial. No dose limiting toxicities have been observed in the 2.5mg/m2 or the 5.0mg/m2 cohorts, and with longer-term follow-up, incidence of skin and eye toxicity, neuropathy and hyperglycemia remains low.
- Phase I dose escalation is ongoing. Exploration of additional doses and frequencies continues, and Bicycle intends to provide further updates this year.
