Lantern Pharma Announces First Patient Dosed in Study for LP-300 in Never Smokers with Advanced Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer

Lantern Pharma, a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company using its proprietary RADR® artificial intelligence and machine learning platform to transform the cost, pace, and timeline of oncology drug discovery and development, today announced the dosing of the first patient in the Phase 2 Harmonic™ clinical study evaluating Lantern’s investigational new drug LP-300 in combination with chemotherapy for never smokers with advanced non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC).

“Never-smokers with non-small cell lung cancer face limited choices in therapy options after treatment with targeted therapies, and we believe there is a great opportunity to introduce a therapeutic regimen designed specifically for this subgroup of cancer patients,” stated Reggie Ewesuedo, M.D., M.Sc., MBA, Lantern Pharma’s VP of Clinical Development. “These patients show tremendous bravery and resolve in helping to establish signals of efficacy including potential increased survival in this Phase 2 trial that combines LP-300 with standard-of-care treatment. Our team continues to watch and monitor additional patients that are being screened and who, after guidance from their clinicians, may potentially enroll in the Harmonic™ trial,” continued Dr. Ewesuedo.

The Harmonic™ trial (NCT05456256) is a Phase 2 clinical trial that is assessing the effect of Lantern’s investigational new drug LP-300 in combination with standard-of-care (SOC) chemotherapy, pemetrexed and carboplatin, on the overall and progression-free survival of never smoker patients with advanced NSCLC. The study has been designed as a 90 patient trial with approximately 2/3rds of the patients receiving LP-300 with chemotherapy and the remaining 1/3rd receiving chemotherapy alone. Lantern has activated 5 clinical trial sites, across 12 locations in the US including Gabrail Cancer Center, Northwest Oncology, New York Cancer and Blood Specialists, Texas Oncology, and Cancer and Blood Specialty Clinic. Across the 5 Harmonic™ clinical trial sites, there is 1 dosed patient and 14 additional potential patients that have been pre-screened and are being monitored for possible enrollment. Multiple additional trial sites across the US are expected to be activated in the 1st half of 2023 and will bolster patient recruitment and enrollment.

In a previous multi-center Phase 3 clinical study, a subset of never-smoker non-small cell lung cancer patients who received LP-300 with chemotherapy showed increased overall and two-year survival of 91% and 125%, respectively, compared to patients who only received chemotherapy. In addition, LP-300 has been administered in multiple clinical trials to more than 1,000 people and has been generally well tolerated. Additional information on the Harmonic™ trial can be found at the Harmonic™ clinical trial website, on ClinicalTrials.gov, or on the first-of-its-kind Harmonic™ trial iPhone app, which is focused on education & awareness for never smoker NSCLC patients and the NSCLC community.
