About Trilaciclib (G1T28)
Trilaciclib is a potential first-in-class short-acting CDK4/6 inhibitor in development to preserve hematopoietic stem cells and enhance immune system function during chemotherapy. Trilaciclib is administered intravenously prior to chemotherapy and has the potential to significantly improve treatment outcomes.

Trilaciclib is being evaluated in three randomized, placebo-controlled Phase 2 clinical trials: a study in newly diagnosed, treatment-naive small-cell lung cancer (SCLC) patients (NCT02499770), a study in previously treated SCLC patients (NCT02514447), and a study in patients with triple-negative breast cancer (NCT02978716). A randomized, placebo-controlled Phase 2 trial evaluating trilaciclib in combination with atezolizumab and chemotherapy in SCLC patients will begin in the second quarter of 2017 (NCT03041311).

About G1T38
G1T38 is a potential best-in-class oral CDK4/6 inhibitor being developed for use in combination with other targeted therapies in multiple oncology indications. G1T38 was well-tolerated with no grade 3/4 adverse events in a Phase 1 study of 75 healthy subjects. G1T38 is currently being evaluated in combination with Faslodex® in a Phase 1b/2a study in patients with estrogen receptor-positive, HER2-negative (ER+, HER2-) breast cancer (NCT02983071).

About G1T48

G1T48 is a proprietary, orally available, selective estrogen receptor degrader (SERD). In preclinical studies, G1T48 has been shown to be more potent than Faslodex® and to have superior anti-tumor efficacy versus other SERDs in development. G1T48 is on track for an Investigational New Drug (IND) application and/or Clinical Trial Application (CTA) submission in the fourth quarter of 2017.
