Access Pharmaceuticals Presents New Data on ProLindac(TM) at the 2009 AACR Annual Meeting
Date:4/21/2009

- Data demonstrates that ProLindac should provide sustained tumor exposure to platinum and provides a mechanistic rationale for the low hematoxicity observed in the clinic -

DALLAS, April 21 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- ACCESS PHARMACEUTICALS, INC. (OTC Bulletin Board: ACCP) announced today that its collaborators at Centre Rene Huguenin in France presented new preclinical data on its lead anticancer compound, ProLindac(TM), at the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) Annual Meeting taking place April 18-22, 2009 at the Colorado Convention Center in Denver. The poster presentation entitled "DACH platinum (dach-Pt) release kinetics, ex-vivo and in vivo plasma protein binding and evaluation of red blood cell (RBC) partitioning of ProLindac, a novel DACH-Pt-bound biopolymer" was presented on Monday, April 20.

ProLindac is Access' novel polymer-based DACH platinum prodrug which has been shown to be active in a wide variety of solid tumors in both preclinical models and in human trials. Access recently announced positive results from the completed phase 2 monotherapy clinical study in recurrent ovarian cancer. The study reported in the 2009 AACR poster provides in vitro and ex-vivo data on the binding of ProLindac to blood components, and suggests a mechanistic rationale for ProLindac's favorable efficacy and safety profile.

"The data shows that ProLindac's polymer carrier is highly bound to circulating plasma proteins," stated David P. Nowotnik, Ph.D., Access' Senior Vice President, Research and Development. "As a result, we would expect ProLindac to provide sustained tumor exposure to platinum. In addition, there was little red blood cell accumulation, which could account for the lower level of hematological toxicities observed for ProLindac compared to others platinum species."

"We are grateful to our European collaborators for their ongoing studies, which continue to expan
