“How can I get part-timers that come in and give me the available supply to satisfy the demand?
We are pleased to be a part of this important clinical study.” Acelarin is a potential first-in-class Pro Tide that has been evaluated in over 140 patients.
In the first-in-human Phase 1 dose-ranging PRO-001 study in 49 evaluable patients with advanced metastatic solid tumors, Acelarin was well tolerated and achieved a 78% disease control rate.
More information about this study may be found at https://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT03146663. Monk of Arizona Oncology and co-Chief Investigator of PRO-105 stated: “Platinum-resistant ovarian cancer remains an area of significant unmet medical need and we are excited to participate in this study and advance Acelarin as a potential treatment for women with ovarian cancer.
Acelarin’s ability to overcome key cancer cell resistance mechanisms resulting in significantly greater levels of the active anti-cancer metabolite differentiates it from other treatment approaches.” Professor Charlie Gourley, of the University of Edinburgh and co-Chief Investigator of PRO-105, added: “Acelarin has shown meaningful clinical activity in advanced recurrent ovarian cancer and has been well-tolerated in clinical studies to date.
In part two of the study, Nu Cana will select one of these doses and enroll at least an additional 24 patients at the selected dose.
