LA JOLLA, CA – Entos, Inc presents a poster today at the annual meeting of the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) that highlights the preclinical data for the company’s first clinical candidate, ENT-H1, generated using its proprietary AI-driven drug discovery platform.

ENT-H1 is a highly differentiated irreversible HER2 inhibitor that exhibits over 1000-fold selectivity against EGFR. It potently targets all known oncogenic forms of HER2, including the recalcitrant exon-20 mutations. ENT-H1 has favorable pharmacokinetic (PK) and safety profiles, enabling once-daily dosing and significant efficacy in multiple HER2-driven tumor models. In these studies, ENT-H1 has consistently outperformed benchmark tyrosine kinase inhibitors and antibody-drug conjugates, positioning it as a potential best-in-class HER2-targeting agent. Unique among known HER2 inhibitors, ENT-H1 shows preferential tumor enrichment, a phenomenon that has been observed across tumor types and anatomic sites. This property is exquisitely linked to HER2 expression, resulting in target engagement with antibody-like precision. Additionally, ENT-H1 has also shown high brain penetrance in brain PK evaluations, and superior efficacy in an intracranial tumor model, outperforming both tucatinib and trastuzumab deruxtecan.

“ENT-H1 is the first clinical candidate delivered from our state-of-the-art AI-driven chemistry platform. This highly differentiated molecule was discovered just eight months into the project, highlighting a key strength of our platform in the integration of physics-informed AI with high-throughput experimentation to explore novel chemical space and rapidly achieve desired optimization outcomes. We are well-positioned to file the IND by the end of 2023 and, with the enthusiastic support of clinical investigators, to bring this promising treatment to patients in need.”
