Shattuck Labs Provides Corporate Update and Highlights Upcoming Key Milestones in 2024

January 8, 2024

AUSTIN, TX and DURHAM, NC, Jan. 08, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Shattuck Labs, Inc. (Shattuck) (NASDAQ: STTK), a clinical-stage biotechnology company pioneering the development of bi-functional fusion proteins as a new class of biologic medicine for the treatment of patients with cancer and autoimmune disease, today provided a corporate update and highlighted upcoming key milestones anticipated in 2024.

“In 2023, we delivered key safety and efficacy data across our clinical development program for SL-172154 and further strengthened our financial resources, which we believe will carry us beyond upcoming milestones in the year ahead,” said Taylor Schreiber, M.D., Ph.D., Chief Executive Officer of Shattuck Labs. “Based on preliminary results demonstrating initial anti-tumor activity and an acceptable safety and tolerability profile across several indications, we believe SL-172154 has first-in-class opportunities in HR-MDS, AML, and ovarian cancer. Our recent financing enables the expansion of our trial in HR-MDS and TP53m AML and acceleration of other regulatory and manufacturing activities to support our discussions in 2024 regarding potential registrational development plans. These are all indications with significant unmet medical need, and we will maintain our current operational efficiency and focus to drive shareholder value in the year ahead.”

Key Accomplishments in 2023
Clinical Accomplishments
Platinum-Resistant Ovarian Cancer (PROC)

  • Presented complete data from the Phase 1A clinical trial of SL-172154 as monotherapy in PROC at the American Society of Clinical Oncology 2023 annual meeting, including data supporting 3 mg/kg as an appropriate dose of SL-172154 for each PROC combination cohort.
  • Completed enrollment of and presented positive interim data from the Phase 1B clinical trial of SL-172154 in combination with pegylated liposomal doxorubicin (PLD) in PROC.
    • Demonstrated an acceptable safety profile and encouraging anti-tumor activity that compares favorably to PLD as a monotherapy.
  • Enrollment continued to progress in the Phase 1B clinical trial of SL-172154 in combination with mirvetuximab soravtansine in PROC.

Higher-Risk Myelodysplastic Syndromes (HR-MDS) and Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML)

  • Presented results from the dose escalation portion of the Phase 1A/B clinical trial of SL-172154 in relapsed/refractory (R/R) AML and HR-MDS and frontline TP53 mutant (TP53m) HR-MDS patients as monotherapy and in combination with azacitidine (AZA) in a poster presentation at the American Society of Hematology Annual Meeting.
    • Anti-leukemic responses were observed with SL-172154 as monotherapy and in combination with AZA. SL-172154 alone and in combination with AZA had an acceptable safety profile, consistent with the safety profile of the individual agents. No destructive anemia was observed.
  • Completed enrollment in frontline expansion cohort in TP53m AML patients and in the frontline expansion cohort in HR-MDS patients.
  • Presented positive initial topline data from the ongoing Phase 1A/B dose expansion clinical trial of SL-172154 with AZA in frontline HR-MDS and TP53m AML patients.
    • Initial data suggest SL-172154 improved complete response rates relative to what would be expected historically with AZA alone in previously untreated HR-MDS and TP53m AML. SL-172154 demonstrated an acceptable safety and tolerability profile both as monotherapy and in combination with AZA.

Corporate Accomplishments

  • On December 21, 2023, Shattuck announced a $50 million registered offering of common stock and concurrent private placement of pre-funded warrants. Net proceeds from the registered offering and the private placement are intended to further support the development of its pipeline candidates, including SL-172154.

Clinical Milestones Expected in 2024

  • Complete objective response rates and initial duration of response data from the ongoing Phase 1B clinical trial of SL-172154 in combination with PLD in PROC expected mid-year 2024.
  • Initial combination data from the Phase 1B clinical trial of SL-172154 in combination with mirvetuximab soravtansine in PROC expected mid-year 2024.
  • Complete objective response rates and initial duration of response data from the Phase 1B expansion cohorts of SL-172154 in combination with AZA in frontline TP53m AML and HR-MDS expected mid-year 2024.

Cash Position and Financial Guidance
Shattuck ended the third quarter of 2023 with approximately $101.1 million in cash and cash equivalents and investments. The company expects its cash and cash equivalents and investments as of September 30, 2023, together with the proceeds from the $50 million registered offering of common stock and concurrent private placement of pre-funded warrants in December of 2023, to be sufficient to fund operations into 2026.
