SALT LAKE CITY, Sept. 20, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Myrexis, Inc. (Nasdaq:MYRX), a biotechnology company focused on discovering, developing, and commercializing novel treatments for cancer, today announced key findings from preclinical studies of the Company's novel cancer metabolism inhibitor (CMI), MPC-9528, at the Cancer and Metabolism: Pathways to the Future Symposium in Edinburgh, Scotland. Compelling preclinical evidence demonstrates that treatment with MPC-9528 results in significant tumor growth inhibition and that the co-administration of niacin improves the therapeutic index of MPC-9528. Additional data, from a large panel of tumor cell lines and primary human tumor tissue indicate that approximately 40% of all cancers may carry a biochemical defect making them respond well to the combination of niacin and MPC-9528 treatment. A simple companion diagnostic could be used to identify patients with such tumors.
