BioLineRx Reports Third Quarter 2012 Financial Results

Dr. Savitsky added, “Following our strategic decision to enter the field of oncology, we were extremely fortunate during the quarter to in-license BL-8040, a promising Phase II ready drug for the treatment of acute myeloid leukemia (AML), acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL), as well as other types of hematological cancers. Since AML and ALL are recognized orphan indications, we plan to seek orphan designation status from the regulatory authorities in order to accelerate BL-8040’s development plan. In addition, based on BL-8040’s positive pre-clinical data, as well as its mechanism of action, we believe it can be utilized for several other related oncology indications. We look forward to the upcoming Phase II clinical studies for evaluating BL-8040’s efficacy on AML and ALL patients, which are expected to commence in the first half of 2013. This compound has recently attracted the attention of leading physicians and scientists at the MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, Texas, one of the premier cancer centers in the world. We expect the MD Anderson Cancer Center to be the lead site in the upcoming clinical studies.”

“An important milestone achieved during the third quarter was the successful completion of the pre-clinical stage of development for BL-8020, an orally available, interferon-free treatment for Hepatitis C. We are proud of the speed and efficiency demonstrated in advancing BL-8020 to the clinical stage, in light of the fact that we just in-licensed this compound during the first quarter of this year. BL-8020 works on the host rather than directly on the virus itself, which suggests pan-genotypic efficacy and the ability to be combined with different drug groups. These two characteristics make BL-8020 attractive as an adjunct therapy to other oral cocktail therapies, therefore not directly competing with the crowded HCV market of currently approved therapies or those under development. We look forward to commencing a Phase I/II clinical study for this promising drug at the beginning of 2013,” stated Dr. Savitsky.
