In addition to advancing multiple product candidates in clinical studies, QINLOCK--is Deciphera's first FDA-approved drug, a switch-control kinase inhibitor for the treatment of fourth-line gastrointestinal stromal tumor (GIST). QINLOCK, an oral oncolytic, is also approved in Canada and Australia for the treatment of fourth-line GIST. --Deciphera (NASDAQ: DCPH) is a publicly traded company headquartered in Waltham, Massachusetts.
