High-level View Of Pipeline (Graphic: Business Wire)

BioLineRx Ltd. (NASDAQ: BLRX) (TASE: BLRX), a biopharmaceutical development company, today reported its results for the fourth quarter and year ended December 31, 2011.

Kinneret Savitsky, Ph.D., CEO of BioLineRx, remarked, “2011 was a very significant year for BioLineRx and we are proud of our achievements in expanding and advancing our therapeutic pipeline. We are now working at near capacity with a robust pipeline of 16 therapeutic products, five of which are in various stages of clinical development.

“Initial results from the ongoing clinical trials for our two leading candidates, BL-1020 and BL-1040, are expected in 2013. BL-1020, for the treatment of schizophrenia, is undergoing the CLARITY Phase 2/3 trial, which assays improvement of cognitive function as its primary endpoint. The CLARITY trial is progressing according to plan, and discussions are being conducted in parallel with potential partners for the further development and commercialization of this product. Regarding BL-1040, for the prevention of pathological cardiac remodeling following a myocardial infarction, our partner Ikaria has commenced the PRESERVATION I trial, a CE Mark registration trial for BL-1040 (also known as 'BCM'), as planned, and we look forward to the results.

“We have pushed ahead with the development of our other clinical candidates, including BL-5010 for the non-surgical removal of skin lesions, which has completed a Phase 1/2 clinical trial. In 2011, we received notification from the European regulatory authorities regarding the designation of BL-5010 as a medical device and have completed designing its next clinical study. We are currently evaluating the most advantageous ways to progress with the product from a business perspective. In addition, BL-1021, our neuropathic pain product, was shown to be safe and well tolerated in a Phase 1a clinical trial, and we are now assessing its development plan, including the best indication to focus on to maximize its commercial potential. The most recent addition to our clinical pipeline is BL-7040, for the treatment of Inflammatory Bowel Disease. BL-7040 recently received approval from the Israeli Ministry of Health for a Phase 2 study. We plan to commence the study in the second quarter of this year and expect to publish the results by the end of 2012,” stated Dr. Savitsky.
