- Initiation of New Phase 2 Study of Trilaciclib to Support its Immune-based Mechanism of Action Expected in 4Q21: The Company confirmed its expectation to initiate a Phase 2 study of trilaciclib and chemotherapy in patients with early-stage triple negative breast cancer (TNBC) in the fourth quarter of 2021 to further investigate the role of trilaciclib in modulating the anti-tumor immune response.
- Initiation of New Phase 2 Study of Trilaciclib in Combination with an Antibody-Drug Conjugate (ADC) in Triple-Negative Breast Cancer Expected in 4Q21: G1 intends to initiate a Phase 2 single arm study of trilaciclib administered prior to an ADC in patients with unresectable locally advanced or metastatic TNBC in the fourth quarter of 2021.

U.S. Food and Drug Administration(FDA) granted Fast Track designation to trilaciclib for use in combination with chemotherapy for the treatment of locally advanced or metastatic triple negative breast cancer.

- NSCLC Market Changes Drive Strategic Decision to Discontinue Phase 2 Trial of Trilaciclib in 2L/3L NSCLC and Shift Resources to New Phase 2 MOA and ADC Trials: The future treatment paradigm in 2L/3L NSCLC is expected to shift further away from docetaxel, the chemotherapy backbone in PRESERVE 4, suggesting minimal future market opportunity in this setting. As such G1 is discontinuing this trial and shifting those resources to support the new Phase 2 MOA and ADC trials
- Initiation of Investigator Initiated Study (IIS) of Trilaciclib in 1L Non-Small Cell
Lung Cancer(NSCLC) Expected in 1Q22: As part of its broad investigator-initiated study program, G1 expects to support an IIS assessing the anti-tumor efficacy of trilaciclib in first-line NSCLC in combination with chemo and a checkpoint inhibitor.
