“RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C,BioCryst Pharmaceuticals, Inc. today announced the presentation of new data that confirms forodesine's clinical activity in the treatment of chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) at the 52nd Annual American Society of Hematology (ASH) Meeting & Exposition being held in Orlando, Florida.
In this Phase 2, open-label, single-arm, multi-center study, forodesine was administered orally at 200 mg twice-daily for 28-day cycles in previously treated CLL patients. The primary endpoint of the study was overall response rate. An analysis conducted after all patients were followed through ≥6 months showed that six of 23 response-evaluable patients demonstrated a partial
response to forodesine, resulting in a response rate of 26 percent. Forodesine 200 mg orally-administered twice-daily was generally safe and well-tolerated in this study. The pattern, frequencies and severity distribution of adverse events were generally consistent with CLL-associated poor bone marrow function and immunodeficiency, prior therapies and co-morbidities.”
