Threshold Pharmaceuticals Reports Second Quarter 2011 Financial And Operational Results

For the six months ended June 30, 2011, the Company’s operating cash requirements were $12.9 million. The Company currently expects 2011 operating cash requirements to be in the range of $27.0 million to $29.0 million. The Company also expects existing cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities to be sufficient to fund the Company’s projected operating requirements into the third quarter of 2012.

2011 Key Milestones

The Company currently anticipates the following key clinical milestones in 2011:

  • Report top line results from the Phase 1 clinical trial in advanced leukemias in the second half of 2011,
  • Report top line efficacy analysis results from the randomized Phase 2 trial in pancreatic cancer at the end of 2011, and
  • Initiate a pivotal Phase 3 clinical trial of TH-302 plus doxorubicin compared to doxorubicin alone in patients with metastatic or locally advanced unresectable soft tissue sarcoma in the third quarter of 2011.

About Threshold Pharmaceuticals

Threshold is a biotechnology company focused on the discovery and development of drugs targeting Tumor Hypoxia, the low oxygen condition found in microenvironments of most solid tumors as well as the bone marrows of some hematologic malignancies. This approach offers broad potential to treat a variety of cancers. By selectively targeting tumor cells, we are building a pipeline of drugs that hold promise to be more effective and less toxic to healthy tissues than conventional anticancer drugs.
