CAMBRIDGE, Mass. & MONTREAL--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Repare Therapeutics Inc. (“Repare” or the “Company”) (Nasdaq: RPTX), a leading clinical-stage precision oncology company, today announced it has been selected for an oral presentation of clinical data from its ongoing Phase 1/2 TRESR (Treatment Enabled by SNIPRx) trial of RP-3500, a potent and selective oral small molecule inhibitor of ATR (Ataxia-Telangiectasia and Rad3-related protein kinase), as well as two additional poster presentations at the upcoming 2022 AACR Annual Meeting held in New Orleans on April 8-13, 2022.
The Company also announced that it will host a conference call with accompanying slides for analysts and investors on Monday, April 11, 2022 at 6:30 p.m. Eastern Time. The call and presentation will include RP-3500 data presented at the 2022 AACR Annual Meeting as well as additional data, representing an update from data in the Company’s abstract (referenced below), which reflects an earlier cut-off date.
“As with any new therapeutic class, differentiation among early product candidates is what ultimately determines success in the clinic and a path toward registration,” commented Lloyd M. Segal, President and Chief Executive Officer of Repare. “In the context of data published as recently as today, we are confident that RP-3500 is a highly differentiated and potentially leading ATR inhibitor. We continue to draw on a wealth of data from the comprehensive Phase 1 monotherapy module of our Phase 1/2 TRESR trial of RP-3500 to begin establishing its therapeutic potential. We look forward to seeing these data presented at AACR and discussing RP-3500’s ongoing and future development plans.”

About Repare Therapeutics’ SNIPRx® Platform
Repare’s SNIPRx® platform is a genome-wide CRISPR-based screening approach that utilizes proprietary isogenic cell lines to identify novel and known synthetic lethal gene pairs and the corresponding patients who are most likely to benefit from the Company’s therapies based on the genetic profile of their tumors. Repare’s platform enables the development of precision therapeutics in patients whose tumors contain one or more genomic alterations identified by SNIPRx® screening, in order to selectively target those tumors in patients most likely to achieve clinical benefit from resulting product candidates.
