Lorus initiates development program exploring novel route of administration for LOR-2040
Date:4/22/2008

cally confined, superficial bladder tumors. In fact intravesical administration exposes the bladder tumor to higher levels of drugs that may prevent tumor cells from becoming invasive and spreading (metastasizing) to other organs. This treatment method is a standard regimen used for many approved chemotherapy drugs to treat superficial bladder cancer.

"I am pleased that we have initiated the studies that explore a novel way of administering LOR-2040 directly to bladder tumors and that we are on schedule to advance LOR-2040 in this indication", said Dr. Aiping Young, President and CEO of Lorus. "Bladder cancer is seventh most common cancer worldwide and is a significant target indication for new therapeutics. Coupled with the high risk of recurrence, even in patients with early stage disease, adding a non-systemic treatment to the currently available treatment options has significant potential."

About LOR-2040

LOR-2040 (formerly GTI-2040) is an RNA-targeted drug candidate specific for the R2 subunit of ribonucleotide reductase, which is required for DNA synthesis and cell proliferation. LOR-2040 has demonstrated strong antitumor and antimetastatic activity in a variety of tumor types in both in vivo and in vitro models. LOR-2040 is under study in a multiple Phase I/II clinical program, including an advanced Phase II clinical trial with LOR-2040 and high dose Ara-C (HiDAC) in refractory and relapsed Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML). The R2 target has been described as a malignant determinant that is elevated in a wide range of tumors, which can cooperate with a variety of cellular cancer causing genes known as oncogenes to enhance tumor growth and metastatic potential.
