Trilaciclib is a first-in-class FDA-designated "Breakthrough Therapy" designed to improve outcomes for people with cancer who are treated with chemotherapy. Positive data have been reported from four randomized trials – three in small cell lung cancer (SCLC) and one in metastatic triple-negative breast cancer (mTNBC). The FDA accepted our New Drug Application (NDA) for trilaciclib for SCLC patients being treated with chemotherapy and granted Priority Review in August 2020 with a Prescription Drug User Fee Act (PDUFA) action date of February 15, 2021. We plan to begin a Phase 3 trial in colorectal cancer in the fourth quarter of 2020. In addition, we have a collaboration with Quantum Leap Healthcare Collaborative to evaluate trilaciclib in a randomized, investigational treatment arm for the ongoing I-SPY 2 TRIAL for neoadjuvant treatment of locally advanced breast cancer.
