BeyondSpring's New Plinabulin Data Shows Fast Onset In Preventing Chemo-Induced Neutropenia

BeyondSpring Inc BYSI announced new data highlighting the mechanism of action of plinabulin in preventing chemotherapy-induced neutropenia (CIN) at the American Society of Hematology (ASH) Annual Meeting and Exposition. 

  • The comparison was made between cancer patients receiving plinabulin 40 mg (n=228) or not receiving plinabulin (n=172) and with all patients receiving myelosuppressive chemotherapy. 
  • Plinabulin 40 mg was given 30 minutes after chemotherapy.
  • Plinabulin rapidly (within 24 hours) reversed chemo-induced myelosuppression in both the PROTECTIVE-1 and 2 studies. 
  • Plinabulin-mediated increases in cell numbers are dose-dependent and correlated among myeloid, lymphoid, and erythroid lineages cells.
