MAIA Selects THIO Middle Dose Level For Future Studies. MAIA announced that it has selected the 180mg dose of THIO to continue the Phase 2 THIO-101 trial in non-small lung cancer (NSCLC). The THIO-101 trial tested three THIO dose levels (60mg, 180mg, or 360mg) followed by cemiplimab (Libtayo), an anti-PD-1 checkpoint inhibitor from Regeneron. The 180mg dose level showed a better safety profile with better measures of efficacy. All future patients in the trial will be treated with the 180mg dose.
Trial Shows The Best THIO Disease Control Data To Date. MAIA also stated that the trial shows all dose levels exceed the disease control rate thresholds in stage 1 of the trial. Disease control rates in the first 8 out of 9 patients exceeded the goal of disease control in 8 out of 19 patients per arm. The 180mg dose had the best preliminary response rate compared with the 60mg and 360mg arms. We see strong results as consistent with prior data presentations showing large survival improvements for THIO treated patients.
