New Drugs on the Horizon Session Highlights New Small Molecule Drug


ROCKVILLE, Md., April 14 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- EntreMed, Inc. (Nasdaq: ENMD), a clinical-stage pharmaceutical company developing therapeutics for the treatment of cancer and inflammatory diseases, today announced the presentation of preclinical and mechanism of action data for its selective kinase inhibitor, ENMD-2076. On Sunday, April 13, 2008, Mark R.

During the presentation, Dr. Bray highlighted ENMD-2076's unique combination of antiangiogenic, cell cycle, and antiproliferative activities. In preclinical studies, ENMD-2076 demonstrated potent activity against Aurora A and tyrosine kinases linked to promoting cancer and inflammatory diseases. ENMD-2076 acts through multiple pathways resulting in antiproliferative activity and the inhibition of angiogenesis. ENMD-2076 has demonstrated substantial, dose-dependent efficacy as a single agent in multiple xenograft models, including tumor regression in breast, colon, and leukemia models. ENMD-2076 is an orally active, multi-kinase inhibitor that has shown an acceptable toxicity profile in multiple preclinical studies without cardiovascular effects.

Dr. Bray commented on the presentation, "We are fortunate to have been selected to showcase the potent activity of ENMD-2076 during this high profile session. ENMD-2076 is an exciting compound with demonstrated single-agent activity against a broad range of tumor types. EntreMed recently commenced a Phase 1, dose-escalation study with ENMD-2076 in advanced cancers and plans to initiate a second Phase 1 study in hematological cancers later in 2008."
