MOSCOW, June 1, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --
Osteros Biomedica announces the completion of Phase 1 clinical trial of its drug МВС-11 intended to treat patients with bone metastases and their associated clinical consequences. The results will be presented to the ASCO conference that will be held in Chicago on June, 2-7 2017.
The trial assessed safety and tolerability of MВС-11 when repeatedly used in various doses and determined a suitable range of doses for subsequent disease-directed studies. It also obtained preliminary efficacy data using positron emission tomography and various other markers of potential drug effect.
MBC-11 is a first-in-class therapeutic conjugate of the bone targeting bisphosphonate etidronate covalently linked to the antimetabolite cytosine arabinoside (Ara-C). A first-in-human phase 1, pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic study of MBC-11 has been completed in advanced cancer patients with bone metastases and phase 2/proof-of-concept studies are being planned.
Alexander Karpeisky, Chief Scientific Advisor of Osteros Biomedica commented, "We are excited to see very promising results in this Phase 1 trial in patients with cancer-induced bone disease. Favorable safety profile together with MBC-11-dependent significant reduction in metabolic activity of bone lesions validate its further clinical development."
The poster will be presented in the sessions listed below.
