BioLineRx Reports Second Quarter 2012 Results

Stocks in this article: BLRX

BioLineRx Ltd. (NASDAQ: BLRX) (TASE: BLRX), a biopharmaceutical development company, today reported its results for the quarter ended June 30, 2012.

Kinneret Savitsky, Ph.D., CEO of BioLineRx, remarked, “During the second quarter, we continued to see progress in the development of our clinical stage compounds. We believe the market potential for BL-1020, our lead product for the treatment of schizophrenia, has increased over the past few months as potentially competing high-profile schizophrenia therapies being developed by large pharmaceutical companies have failed during late-stage clinical trials, including compounds for cognition improvement in schizophrenia working on mechanisms of action different than that of BL-1020. We currently expect to receive results from the Phase 2/3 CLARITY study in the second half of 2013, which is extended from our previous targeted timeframe of mid-2013. This extension reflects a recent unanticipated delay in the enrollment of participants. We are taking steps to mitigate this delay as much as possible, including the opening of an additional number of sites. The PRESERVATION I clinical trial, a pivotal CE Mark registration trial for BL-1040 (BCM) led by Ikaria, is continuing according to plan and we look forward to the results of this trial during 2013. Another promising clinical compound is BL-7040, an orally available oligonucleotide for the treatment of Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD), which is currently in a Phase 2a proof-of-concept clinical trial at three sites in Israel, with a fourth site expected to be opened shortly. The IBD therapeutics market represents a very substantial opportunity for BioLineRx. According to a 2011 study by Visiongain, ‘the IBD therapeutics market was estimated at $5 billion in 2009, and is expected to grow to $7 billion in 2015.’ We look forward to the results of the BL-7040 Phase 2a clinical trial, which we hope to announce by the end of this year or early next year."
