Galena Biopharma Provides Update on Phase 2 Clinical Trial

Galena Biopharma, Inc. announced the first patient has been dosed in the GALE-401, or Anagrelide Controlled Release (CR), Phase 2 Clinical Trial. The Phase 2 study will treat patients with elevated platelet counts in myeloproliferative neoplasms (MPNs) including essential thrombocythemia (ET). Based on discussions with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and pending a successful development program, Galena would pursue approval via the 505(b)(2) regulatory pathway. The Phase 2 trial is an open-label, single-arm, multicenter study of GALE-401 in 20 patients with MPN-related thrombocytosis. The goals of the study are to confirm the platelet-lowering activity of GALE-401 in patients with MPNs, to assess safety and tolerability, and to measure blood levels of the drug. The primary efficacy endpoint will be the proportion of subjects who achieve a complete or partial platelet response for at least four weeks during the first six months of treatment. MPNs encompass a family of diseases including essential thrombocythemia, polycythemia vera, primary myelofibrosis, and chronic myelogenous leukemia. The active ingredient immediate release version of anagrelide has been shown to reduce excessive platelet counts and has been approved by the FDA for treating high platelet counts in patients with MPNs. Anagrelide CR is Galena's new formulation of anagrelide that releases the active ingredient more slowly over time than currently marketed versions of this drug, and is therefore absorbed more slowly into the bloodstream.
