SpringWorks Therapeutics (Nasdaq: SWTX) is a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company that applies a precision medicine approach to acquiring, developing, and commercializing life-changing medicines for underserved patient populations suffering from severe rare diseases and cancer.
SpringWorks has a differentiated portfolio of small molecule targeted oncology product candidates. Its lead pipeline programs are in potentially registrational clinical trials for rare oncology indications. Nirogacestat, a gamma secretase inhibitor, is in a Phase 3 clinical trial for the treatment of desmoid tumors, which are rare and often debilitating and disfiguring soft-tissue tumors. There are currently no approved therapies for patients with desmoid tumors. Mirdametinib, a MEK inhibitor, is in a Phase 2b clinical trial for the treatment of adults and children with neurofibromatosis type 1-associated plexiform neurofibromas, which are peripheral nerve sheath tumors that cause severe pain, disfigurement and a shortened life span.
SpringWorks was founded in 2017 by Bain Capital Life Sciences, Bain Capital Double Impact, and OrbiMed in partnership with Pfizer to advance a portfolio of four clinical stage assets targeting areas of significant unmet medical need. Bain Capital Life Sciences continues to be an active member of the Company’s Board of Directors.
