Rexahn says Supinoxin 'safe, well tolerated', presents RX-3117 data
Rexahn Pharmaceuticals announced preliminary efficacy data for RX-3117 in an ongoing Phase Ib/IIa clinical trial in patients with metastatic pancreatic cancer and provided an update on the Phase I clinical trial with Supinoxin at the 2016 European Society for Medical Oncology Congress in Copenhagen, Denmark. "The RX-3117 clinical data are very encouraging, since there are no approved treatments for pancreatic cancer patients who have failed two or more prior therapies. Current options for these patients are usually limited to palliative or best supportive care. Having patients who show responses beyond 4 months in this refractory patient population is certainly very exciting," said Ely Benaim, M.D., Chief Medical Officer for Rexahn. The updated results from the ongoing Phase I clinical trial continue to show intriguing evidence of single-agent, clinical activity of Supinoxin. Supinoxin is safe and well tolerated at the doses and dosing schedules tested with no dose limiting toxicities or treatment-related serious adverse events.
