ICP-192 is a novel, irreversible pan-FGFR inhibitor may overcome on-target resistance to first generation FGFR inhibitors (erdafitinib, pemigatinib, rogaratinib, infigratinib, derazatinib). ICP-192 is a highly selective pan-FGFR inhibitor, and has improved safety profiles in comparison to the first generation FGFR inhibitors.

HERIZON-BTC-01: A Phase 2 Study of Zanidatamab (ZW25; bispecific antibody) in Patients with Advanced or Metastatic HER2-Amplified Biliary Tract Cancer, Including Intrahepatic Cholangiocarcinoma, Extrahepatic Cholangiocarcinoma, and Gallbladder Cancer

This study will test the effectiveness & safety of zanidatamab (ZW25) as a treatment for biliary tract cancer (including ICC, ECC, and gallbladder cancer) that contain extra copies of a gene called HER2. Patients must have HER2, advanced (unresectable) or metastatic biliary tract cancer which has progressed following standard of care therapy.

Ivosidenib (AG-120) With Nivolumab in IDH1 Mutant Tumors

We have identified IDH1 mutations as mediating the exclusion of immune cells in tumors. Ivosidenib is an IDH1 inhibitor. We hypothesize that blocking IDH1 will enhance cancer immunotherapy (nivolumab) in settings where immunotherapy normally doesn’t work. Approximately 10-15% of patients with cholangiocarcinomas have tumors with IDH1 mutations.

Testing the Combination of Pevonedistat With Chemotherapy for Bile Duct Cancer of the Liver

This phase II trial studies how well the drug pevonedistat—when given alone or in combination with chemotherapy (paclitaxel and carboplatin)—works in treating patients with bile duct cancer of the liver. Pevonedistat may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth.
