CytRx Corporation Announces Publication of Phase 1b/2 Aldoxorubicin Clinical Data in Soft Tissue Sarcoma in Cancer

CytRx Corporation (CYTR) announced that a paper, titled 'A Phase 1b/2 Study of Aldoxorubicin in Patients With Soft Tissue Sarcoma', has been published online in Cancer, peer-reviewed journal of the American Cancer Society. The paper discusses results from CytRx's completed Phase 1b/2 clinical trial where 25 patients were enrolled, including 17 patients (68%) with advanced soft tissue sarcoma (STS). Data from the trial demonstrated that aldoxorubicin administered at its maximum tolerated dose (MTD) of 350mg/m(2) showed a substantial increase in median progression-free survival (PFS) in patients with advanced STS (n=13). Partial responses (PR) were achieved in 38% of patients and stable disease (SD) was achieved in 46% of patients. Median PFS was 11.25 months and median overall survival (OS) was 21.71 months. Notably, 12 of the 13 patients in the MTD dosing cohort had received prior chemotherapy and had experienced either no response or disease progression while on prior therapy. In addition, patients in this dosing cohort completed a median of 8 dosing cycles, and 9 patients (69%) had a PR or SD lasting >=4 months. Aldoxorubicin was generally well tolerated, with no clinically significant cardiotoxicities and no drug-related deaths. Aldoxorubicin is currently being studied in a pivotal global Phase 3 clinical trial evaluating the efficacy and safety of aldoxorubicin as a second-line treatment for patients with STS under a Special Protocol Assessment with the FDA. CytRx is also evaluating aldoxorubicin in two Phase 2 clinical trials, one in patients with late-stage glioblastoma (GBM) and the other in HIV-related Kaposi's sarcoma, a global Phase 2b clinical trial in patients with relapsed small cell lung cancer, a Phase 1b trial in combination with ifosfamide in patients with soft tissue sarcoma, and a Phase 1b trial in combination with gemcitabine in patients with metastatic solid tumors.
