Dr. Matulonis commented on the results of the study, "ENMD-2076 has demonstrated impressive anti-cancer activity in platinum-resistant ovarian cancer which is notoriously difficult to treat, and these patients have few options."
EntreMed's chief medical officer, Carolyn F. Sidor, M.D., M.B.A., added, "These results are very encouraging as they support further development of ENMD-2076 and also help us clarify its developmental path in ovarian cancer. We are currently designing the next clinical trial in this indication and look forward to opportunities to make ENMD-2076 available to ovarian cancer patients in the future."

ENMD-2076 is an orally-active, Aurora A/angiogenic kinase inhibitor with a unique kinase selectivity profile and multiple mechanisms of action. ENMD-2076 has been shown to inhibit a distinct profile of angiogenic tyrosine kinase targets in addition to the Aurora A kinase. Aurora kinases are key regulators of mitosis (cell division), and are often over-expressed in human cancers. ENMD-2076 also targets the VEGFR, Flt-3 and FGFR3 kinases which have been shown to play important roles in the pathology of several cancers. ENMD-2076 has shown promising activity in Phase I clinical trials in solid tu
