2. AACR 2018 Annual Meeting Abstract Number 4790: YH25448, an irreversible 3rd-generation EGFR TKI, exhibits superior anticancer effects with potent brain BBB penetration in NSCLC.
Lazertinib (YH25448, GNS-1480) is an oral, potent, highly mutant-selective and irreversible, investigational 3rd-generation EGFR-TKI that penetrates the blood-brain barrier (BBB). It targets the activating EGFR mutations Del19 and L858R, as well as the T790M mutation, while sparing wild type. EGFR mutations are present in approximately 10-15% of NSCLCs. Lazertinib is being evaluated in advanced NSCLC as both first- and second-line treatments.
