BOULDER, Colo., Nov. 5, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Array BioPharma Inc. (NASDAQ: ARRY) today announced that data will be presented on two drug candidates, ARRY-520, a KSP inhibitor, and ARRY-614, a dual p38/Tie2 inhibitor, at the 2012 Annual Meeting of the American Society of Hematology (ASH) in Atlanta, Georgia. Array will also hold a conference call today, Monday, November 5, 2012 at 4:30 p.m. ET, to review the abstracts. The call-in details are provided below.
Ron Squarer, Chief Executive Officer of Array, noted, "We are excited to present clinical results for ARRY-520 and ARRY-614 at the upcoming ASH annual meeting. Notably, our oral presentation will show that in patients with triple-refractory multiple myeloma and a median number of 10 prior treatment regimens, ARRY-520 plus low-dose dexamethasone has a 22% overall response rate (≥PR), with manageable safety. This response rate is comparable to those reported for pomalidomide or carfilzomib even though their studies included patients with only half the number of prior median treatment regimens. In a related abstract assessing the same group of ARRY-520-treated patients, we observed that prospective screening for the acute phase protein alpha-1-acidic glycoprotein, or AAG, may enable us to better select patients who will respond to treatment with ARRY-520. For patients with a non-elevated AAG level, the overall response rate (≥PR) increased to 33%. We believe these observed overall response rates in a heavily pre-treated patient population with limited treatment options defines a potential regulatory path to approval for ARRY-520."
ARRY‑520 is currently advancing in three clinical trials. Positive results in any one o
