BTOG 2023 | TEAD inhibitor IK-930: a promising targeted therapy for mesothelioma

Dean Fennell, MBBS, PhD, FRCP, University Hospitals of Leicester NHS Trust, Leicester, UK, comments on the significant results from the TEAD study (NCT05228015) a Phase I, first-in-human study in which the TEAD inhibitor IK-930 brought about notable shrinkage in mesothelioma tumors in a number of participants. However, further biomarker testing of the NF2 gene, hypothesized to dispose TEAD-inhibitor sensitivity, did not neatly correlate with the clinical outcomes, encouraging further research. These findings fit into a broader picture of developing therapeutics to target specific, known mutations. This interview took place at the British Thoracic Oncology Group (BTOG) Annual Conference 2023 in Belfast, UK.
