CAMBRIDGE, Mass., March 31, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Merrimack Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (Nasdaq:MACK) today announced that it will present at the 2014 AACR Annual Meeting. The conference will take place on April 5-9, 2014 at the San Diego Convention Center in San Diego. Presentations will include a clinical pilot study evaluating the feasibility of using ferumoxytol * as an MRI imaging agent prior to MM-398 investigational treatment. Additional preclinical presentations describe the relationship between ferumoxytol and MM-398 tumor uptake and activity, as well as exploring the mechanistic basis of MM-398 activity across multiple tumor models. Data will be presented in four poster sessions.

About MM-398

MM-398 is a nanoliposomal formulation of irinotecan. MM-398 is being evaluated in several clinical trials including a Phase 3 study in metastatic pancreatic cancer, a Phase 2 study in patients with metastatic colorectal cancer and a Phase 1 cross indication translational study. MM-398 is not approved for any indication by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration or any other regulatory agency.  Under a 2011 agreement with PharmaEngine, Inc. (Taipei, Taiwan), Merrimack consolidated the worldwide development and commercialization rights to MM-398, with the exception of commercialization rights in Taiwan which are held by PharmaEngine, Inc.
