Phase 1 Cancer Trial for Altiratinib (DCC-2701) MET/TIE2/VEGFR/TRK Kinase Inhibitor for Solid Tumors
Deciphera Pharmaceuticals a clinical stage biotechnology company focused on improved kinase inhibitor treatments for cancer today announced the initiation of a Phase 1 clinical trial of its MET/TIE2/VEGFR2/TRK inhibitor altiratinib (DCC-2701). The Phase 1 trial will evaluate the safety tolerability and initial efficacy of altiratinib in cancer patients with solid tumors.
