Array BioPharma achieves milestone for initiation of MEK162 Phase 3 trial in patients with LGSOC

We know that, MEK162, is an oral, highly selective MEK inhibitor. In preclinical studies, MEK162 showed significant antitumor activities in cell lines and animal models. MEK162 is now being investigated in Phase I trials in advanced solid tumors. Recent research confirms that the MEK pathway acts as a central axis in the proliferation of different tumors including melanoma, non-small cell lung, head/neck and pancreatic cancers.  And MEK inhibition, either alone or in combination with other agents, is an important therapeutic strategy in treating cancer.  ARRY-162 is a novel, orally active, potent, selective, non-ATP-competitive inhibitor of MEK 1 / 2 that has the potential to treat a range of malignant diseases.
