About Momelotinib

Momelotinib is a selective and orally bioavailable JAK1, JAK2 and ACVR1/ALK2 inhibitor currently under investigation for the treatment of myelofibrosis. Myelofibrosis results from dysregulated JAK-STAT signaling and is characterized by constitutional symptoms, splenomegaly (enlarged spleen) and progressive anemia.

Sierra Oncology is currently awaiting topline results of the MOMENTUM clinical trial, a global, randomized, double-blind Phase 3 study evaluating momelotinib for the treatment of symptomatic and anemic myelofibrosis patients. Top-line data are anticipated by February 2022. Assuming positive data, the company plans to file a New Drug Application with the US Food & Drug Administration (FDA) in the second quarter of 2022. The FDA has granted Fast Track designation for momelotinib.
