Investment summary

Sunesis is a pharmaceutical company developing small molecule oncology drugs. Its lead program is Qinprezo, a quinolone derivative for relapsed/refractory acute myeloid leukemia (AML) without the dose limiting cardiotoxicity of anthracyclines. The FDA discouraged submitting an NDA after it missed its primary endpoint, but significant potential remains in Europe where Qinprezo has data comparable to those used in other approvals. A decision by CHMP is expected by mid-2017. Sunesis is also advancing its clinical asset, SNS-062, a novel non-covalent, oral BTK inhibitor that may work in Imbruvica relapsed and refractory patients. Data from a Phase Ia study in healthy volunteers was recently presented and indicated an attractive PK/PD profile with twice a day dosing. A Phase Ib/II is expected to begin in H117.

Industry outlook

Sunesis is an oncology company with a late-stage asset, potentially near European approval, as well as preclinical assets utilising promising targets, making it an attractive partner.
