Recent Operational Highlights

  • In February 2013, Curis hired Ali Fattaey, Ph.D. as its President and Chief Operating Officer.  
  • In January 2013, Curis treated the first patient in a Phase I clinical study of CUDC-907 in relapsed or refractory lymphoma or multiple myeloma cancer patients. During the fourth quarter of 2012 and early 2013, Curis received an aggregate of $1.1 million under its agreement with LLS.  
  • In December 2012, Curis closed a $30 million Erivedge royalty-secured debt transaction. The debt is secured with certain future royalties and other royalty-related payments from net sales of Erivedge.   
  • In December 2012, the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office issued a patent covering a genus of compounds that includes Debio 0932, an orally-administered Heat Shock Protein 90 (HSP90) inhibitor, which is being developed by Curis' licensee Debiopharm.  
  • In November 2012, Curis secured the exclusive global development and commercialization rights from Genentech to antagonist of IAP proteins, CUDC-427.  
  • In October 2012, Curis initiated a Phase I clinical study of an oral formulation of CUDC-101. This study was subsequently terminated as sufficient drug exposure was not achieved after dosing the first cohort of patients. Curis is currently pursuing the development of alternative formulations as well as backup candidates, which may be more amenable to oral dosing.
