CytRx’s Aldoxorubicin Clinical Data Presented At The ESMO 2012 Congress

Stocks in this article: CYTR

CytRx Corporation (NASDAQ: CYTR), a biopharmaceutical company specializing in oncology, announced that favorable data from its Phase 1b/2 clinical trial with its tumor-targeting doxorubicin conjugate aldoxorubicin (formerly INNO-206) in patients with advanced soft tissue sarcoma was presented today at the Sarcoma Poster-Discussion Session (Hall H) at the ESMO (European Society of Medical Oncology) 2012 Congress in Vienna, Austria. The presentation, entitled “INNO-206 (aldoxorubicin) Is An Active Drug For Relapsed Soft Tissue Sarcoma,” was given by renowned sarcoma expert Sant P. Chawla, M.D., Director of the Sarcoma Oncology Center in Santa Monica, CA.

The data from the aldoxorubicin Phase 1b/2 clinical trial showed clinical benefit (defined as partial response and stable disease of more than four months following up to eight cycles of treatment) with aldoxorubicin at the maximum tolerated dose in 10 of 13 (77%) evaluable patients with relapsed or refractory soft tissue sarcoma. The data from this clinical trial were first presented at the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) Conference on June 3, 2012.

“These clinical trial results with aldoxorubicin were introduced at ASCO, presented today at ESMO, and will be featured at the Connective Tissue Oncology Society (CTOS) Conference in Prague, Czech Republic, in November. We believe that the avid reception for presentation of the aldoxorubicin clinical data by leading oncology conferences is a testament to their importance and we are pleased that these clinical results are capturing the attention of the oncology community,” stated Steven A. Kriegsman, CytRx President and CEO.

“Although the trial data are derived from a small patient group, the fact that clinical benefit was seen in 77% of these patients is noteworthy, particularly given the advanced stage of disease,” said the clinical trial’s principal investigator and renowned sarcoma expert Sant P. Chawla, M.D., F.R.A.C.P. “Further, of the eight evaluable patients who were previously treated with doxorubicin and had either not responded or relapsed, five showed clinical benefit with aldoxorubicin. Among these, three showed prolonged partial responses with greater than 30% tumor shrinkage.”
