Item 8.01 Other Events.

On September 11, 2022, the Company announced interim clinical data for RLY-4008
that was presented at the European Society for Medical Oncology (“ESMO”)
Congress 2022.

The interim clinical data were based on an August 1, 2022 data cut-off date from
both the dose escalation and dose expansion phases of the RLY-4008 clinical
trial. The interim clinical data included a safety database of 195 patients,
with 89 patients treated at the pivotal dose of 70 mg once daily (“QD”) dose, of
which 17 were pan-FGFR (“FGFRi”) treatment-naïve FGFR2-fusion cholangiocarcinoma
(“CCA”) patients eligible for efficacy evaluation (patients with measurable
disease who had opportunity for two or more tumor assessments to confirm
response or discontinued treatment with less than two tumor assessments).

Key interim clinical data include:

15 out of 17 of the efficacy evaluable patients at the pivotal dose experienced
a partial response resulting in an 88% interim overall response rate (“ORR”),
with 14 confirmed partial responses and one unconfirmed partial response in an
ongoing patient.

13 out of 15 responders remain on treatment; one responder came off study to be
resected with curative intent.

The two patients with the best response of stable disease remain on treatment.

More broadly across all dose levels and schedules, 38 FGFRi-naïve FGFR2-fusion
CCA patients were eligible for efficacy evaluation, of which 24 experienced a
partial response resulting in a 63% interim ORR, with 22 confirmed partial
responses and 2 unconfirmed partial responses.

The interim safety analysis as of the August 1, 2022 data cut-off date was
generally consistent with the Company’s analysis of the interim clinical data
for RLY-4008 as of April 19, 2022 that was shared with the U.S. Food and Drug
Administration (“FDA”) as well as the Company’s initial clinical data for
RLY-4008 as of September 9, 2021 that was announced in October 2021. In

Most treatment emergent adverse events were expected FGFR2 on-target, low-grade,
monitorable, manageable and largely reversible.

There were no observed Grade 4 or 5 adverse events.

Off-target toxicities of hyperphosphatemia and diarrhea continued to be
clinically insignificant.
