MIRATI THERAPEUTICS REPORTS FOURTH QUARTER AND FULL YEAR 2015 FINANCIAL RESULTS AND PROVIDES BUSINESS UPDATE

 

Clinical Updates and Milestones Expected Across All Three Lead Programs During 2016

 

SAN DIEGO — March 9, 2016 — Mirati Therapeutics, Inc. (NASDAQ: MRTX) today reported financial results for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2015 and provided an update on its drug development programs.

 

“We made significant progress across our entire pipeline in 2015, setting up a potentially transformative year for the Company in 2016,” said Charles M. Baum, M.D., Ph.D., president and CEO of Mirati. “After reporting initial results in our Phase 1b dose expansion clinical trial for glesatinib last fall, which included two confirmed responses in non-small cell lung cancer patients, we have quickly moved into a Phase 2 clinical trial utilizing our diagnostic collaborations with Guardant Health and Foundation Medicine to help us identify which NSCLC patients we believe are most likely to respond.”

 

“We expect to see updated data from both of those trials later this year, as well as data from our Phase 1b dose expansion clinical trial for sitravatinib, and we are looking forward to starting our Phase 2 combination trial in immuno-oncology for mocetinostat in the second quarter. Following our successful financing last September, we are now poised to capitalize on the significant potential of our targeted cancer therapies for patients in need of better treatment options.”
