BioCryst Reports First Quarter 2008 Financial Results and Clinical Update
Date:5/8/2008

homa (CTCL) trial update and chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) trial initiation

The forodesine HCl CTCL pivotal trial is enrolling as planned. This trial has been reviewed under a Special Protocol Assessment (SPA) from the United States Food & Drug Administration (FDA) to support regulatory approval.

BioCryst has also initiated a second clinical trial for patients with CLL based upon data presented at the December 2007 ASH meeting, which demonstrated the potential of forodesine HCl as a treatment for CLL, both as a single agent and in combination with bendamustine. This second CLL trial is a single-arm study evaluating single agent forodesine HCl as a treatment for patients with CLL; response rate is the primary endpoint. The first patient was dosed during the first quarter 2008, and BioCryst will provide a trial update by year end.

Intramuscular (i.m.) peramivir clinical development update

BioCryst initiated a Phase III i.m. peramivir trial early this year and voluntarily discontinued it after 82 of the planned 600 patients had enrolled because of a decision to pursue higher doses in a Phase II setting. Patients with influenza A and B were treated with either placebo or 300mg of i.m. peramivir. Although only 14% of the planned patients were enrolled in the study, results supported the activity of 300mg peramivir. The study was designed to show a difference within the influenza A subgroup, where preliminary clinical data showed a 30 hour reduction in time to alleviation of symptoms in patients that received peramivir compared to those who received placebo. Preliminary results from the overall population showed a reduction in time to alleviation of symptoms of approximately 14 hours. Because the trial was not carried out to completion, the sample size was small; the observed treatment effect was not statistically significant.

These results are consistent with data from previous clinical trials:
