CytRx reports 'positive' results from Phase 3 Aldoxorubicin trial

CytRx announced positive updated results from its pivotal Phase 3 clinical trial evaluating aldoxorubicin compared to investigator's choice in patients with relapsed or refractory soft tissue sarcomas. The study, which enrolled 433 patients, demonstrated a statistically significant improvement in progression-free survival between aldoxorubicin and investigator's choice therapy in 246 patients with leiomyosarcoma and liposarcoma, (p=0.007). The hazard ratio was 0.62 (95% CI 0.44-0.88), representing a 38% reduction in the risk of tumor progression for patients receiving aldoxorubicin versus investigator's choice. Leiomyosarcoma and liposarcoma are the two most common types of STS and accounted for 57% of the patients enrolled in the trial. Aldoxorubicin demonstrated a statistically significant improvement in PFS over investigator's choice in 312 patients treated in North America (p=0.028; HR=0.71, 95% CI 0.53-0.97). Notably, aldoxorubicin performed better than investigator's choice for the entire study population and narrowly missed statistical significance (p=0.12; HR=0.81, 95% CI 0.64-1.06). All responses were determined by an independent, blinded central lab assessment of scans. CytRx plans to submit the results of this clinical trial for presentation at an upcoming major scientific meeting.

CytRx price target lowered to $3 from $8 at FBR Capital
FBR Capital analyst Christopher James cut his price target for CytRx to $3 after the company's Phase III study with aldoxorubicin in patients with relapsed or refractory soft-tissue sarcoma was unable to meet its primary endpoint. Despite missing on the endpoint, aldoxorubicin demonstrated clear clinical activity, with an objective response rate nearly double the rate observed within the comparator arm, James tells investors in a research note. He keeps an Outperform rating on CytRx. In pre-market trading, the stock is down 69% to 77c.
