Glutamine is an essential nutrient for cancer cell proliferation. The enzyme glutaminase, which converts glutamine to glutamate, has been identified as a critical choke point in the utilization of glutamine by cancer cells.

CALA reported results of studies with primary human breast tumors that support glutaminase as a potential target in triple negative breast cancer (TNBC).

Using a novel pharmacodynamic assay designed to measure the extent of glutaminase inhibition in a single post-dose tumor biopsy sample, significant glutaminase inhibition was observed following oral administration of CB-839.

CALA is developing CB-839, a potent, selective and orally bioavailable glutaminase inhibitor that is currently in Phase I clinical trials in solid and hematological malignancies.

CALA is a clinical-stage company focused on discovering and developing novel small molecule drugs directed against tumor metabolism and tumor immunology.
