GTx Provides Corporate Update And Reports Second Quarter 2012 Financial Results

GTx, Inc. (Nasdaq: GTXI) today provided a Company update and reported financial results for the second quarter of 2012.

“We continue to make progress on our late stage clinical programs. We are enrolling our two pivotal Phase III clinical trials evaluating enobosarm for the prevention and treatment of muscle wasting in non-small cell lung cancer patients,” said Mitchell S. Steiner, MD, CEO of GTx. “We expect to receive topline data from these studies during the second quarter of 2013. In addition, we will begin screening patients this month for our Phase II clinical study of Capesaris ® as secondary hormonal therapy in men with metastatic castration resistant prostate cancer.”

Clinical updates

Enobosarm (Ostarine ® , GTx-024), an oral selective androgen receptor modulator, for the prevention and treatment of muscle wasting in patients with advanced non-small cell lung cancer: GTx is currently enrolling subjects with advanced non-small cell lung cancer in two pivotal Phase III clinical trials, POWER 1 and POWER 2. These international Phase III studies are being conducted in clinical sites in the United States, Europe, and South America. In each of the placebo-controlled, double-blind clinical trials, 300 patients with Stage III or IV non-small cell lung cancer are being randomized to oral daily doses of placebo or enobosarm 3 mg at the time they begin first line standard chemotherapy. The studies are evaluating as co-primary endpoints at three months of treatment the response rates of enobosarm versus placebo on maintaining or improving total lean body mass (muscle) assessed by dual x-ray absorptiometry and improving physical function assessed by the Stair Climb Test. Durability of the drug effect is being evaluated as a secondary endpoint after five months of treatment. Enrollment for both studies is expected to be completed in the fourth quarter of this year, and topline results should be released during the second quarter of 2013.

Capesaris ® (GTx-758), an oral selective estrogen receptor alpha agonist, for secondary hormonal therapy of advanced prostate cancer: GTx is initiating this quarter an open-label clinical study of 75 men with metastatic castration resistant prostate cancer to test three lower doses of Capesaris (125 mg, 250 mg and 500 mg) sequentially in cohorts of 25 patients each. The Phase II 712 clinical trial is designed to assess the effect of Capesaris on serum prostate specific antigen response and prostate cancer progression. The study is expected to provide confirmation of the mechanism of drug action for Capesaris on lowering serum free testosterone levels by increasing serum SHBG in castrated men who failed primary androgen deprivation therapy. The safety and tolerability of lower doses of Capesaris will also be evaluated in these subjects, including the incidence of venous thromboembolic events.

Financial highlights for the quarter ended June 30, 2012

The net loss for the quarter ended June 30, 2012 was $10.4 million compared to a net loss of $10.7 million for the same period in 2011.
