hi fellow Fools,

as promised, here my next post regarding Exelixis

GDC-0973, Genetech/Roche's potent, selective MEK1/2 inhibitor, is used in combination with a PI3K inhibitor in the treatment of solid tumors.

Interesting fact: GDC-0973 is also known as XL-518 (originally developped by Exelixis !). See reference here:

At ESMO 2012 there will be a pivotal latebreaker presentation - LBA28 - of a phase-I trial; as this information is embargoed, the results will be available on Saturday, Sep 29, 2012, 9:15 am (Vienna time)the earliest.
I intend to make the conclusion of this latebreaker available to you asap., since I plan to attend this session

It looks like Exelixis has another hot iron in the forge...

take care, marsuculix
