Lixte Biotechnology Announces Initiation Of A Phase I Trial Of Its Lead Anti-Cancer Compound, LB-100
Date:4/25/2013

EAST SETAUKET, N.Y., April 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Lixte Biotechnology Holdings, Inc. (LIXT), reported the start of a Phase I trial to determine the appropriate dose of its potentially first-in-class, anticancer compound, LB-100, when given alone and then when given in combination with docetaxel (Taxotere®). Details of the trial underway at an NCI-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center are available in the clinical trials registry: http://clinicaltrials.gov/show/NCT01837667.

Dr. John Kovach , the founder of Lixte said that "LB-100 inhibits an enzyme necessary for cancer cells to recover from damage to DNA. In mouse model systems of human cancers, LB-100 potentiates the activity of widely used anti-cancer regimens that exert their therapeutic benefit by damaging DNA without apparent increases in their toxicity. We hope the same benefit of the combination of LB-100 and known anti-cancer drugs will be seen in patients.  In the present trial, LB-100 will be partnered with the versatile drug, docetaxel.  As a single agent, docetaxel is the treatment of choice for several common cancers after failure of first-line therapy. Enhancement of the therapeutic benefit of docetaxel for these cancers is the initial goal in the clinical development of our novel DNA-repair disrupter."
