BioLineRx Reports Third Quarter 2012 Financial Results

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

Highlights of the Third Quarter of 2012 and Recent Developments:

  • BL-1020 (Schizophrenia):
    • Re-analysis of the Phase IIb EAGLE trial results indicates that BL-1020 demonstrated a significantly greater beneficial effect on cognitive function in schizophrenia patients compared to the original analysis of the study
    • Announced the decision to conduct an interim analysis of Phase II/III CLARITY clinical trial, with results expected in Q1 2013
    • Results from the Phase IIb EAGLE clinical trial, showing that BL-1020 is safe and effective in improving schizophrenia in addition to improving cognitive impairment, were published in the Journal of Clinical Psychiatry
    • New U.S. patent on BL-1020, extending patent protection until at least 2031; additional European patent granted for BL-1020, valid through June 2026
  • BL-8040 (Leukemia and other hematological cancers):
    • Signed a worldwide exclusive license agreement with Biokine Therapeutics Ltd., a Clal Biotechnology Industries (TASE: CBI) portfolio company, to develop and commercialize BL-8040
    • Phase IIa clinical studies for acute myeloid leukemia (AML) and acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) expected to start in H1 2013
  • BL-8020 (Hepatitis C):
    • Successful completion of pre-clinical development for BL-8020, an oral, interferon-free treatment for Hepatitis C
    • Phase I/II clinical study expected to commence in Q1 2013
  • BL-7010 (Celiac disease):
    • New pre-clinical results, demonstrating the safety of BL-7010, an oral treatment for celiac disease and gluten sensitivity, were presented at a leading European celiac conference
    • Efficacy results published in Gastroenterology, a leading medical magazine

Kinneret Savitsky, Ph.D., CEO of BioLineRx, remarked, “We are pleased with the progress achieved in our portfolio during the third quarter with respect to our clinical and pre-clinical therapeutic compounds. With regard to our leading compound, BL-1020 for schizophrenia, we are especially excited by the recent re-analysis of the Phase IIb EAGLE study by an outside group of leading scientists. According to the re-analysis, when taking into account the effects of the circadian rhythm (i.e., 24-hour time cycle), BL-1020 is significantly more effective in improving cognitive function than previously discovered. The ramifications of this re-analysis have been taken into account in the execution of the on-going CLARITY Phase II/III trial for BL-1020, and these findings, along with other analyses we have previously performed, have motivated us to initiate an interim analysis of the short-term cognitive effects of BL-1020 within the CLARITY trial. We are hopeful the interim analysis will reinforce our confidence regarding the cognitive benefits of BL-1020, and potentially accelerate our commercialization efforts for the further development of this promising therapeutic candidate.”
