Poniard Pharmaceuticals Reports First Quarter 2008 Financial Results and Corporate Update
Date:5/6/2008

er Conference. The

final efficacy results confirmed previously announced interim

results showing a survival benefit in patients with recurrent SCLC

who failed prior platinum-containing first-line chemotherapy or who

progressed within six months of first-line therapy. The median

overall survival in the picoplatin Phase 2 trial was 27 weeks for

refractory and resistant small cell lung cancer patients, a

population for which there is no approved therapy in the US. The

Pivotal Phase 3 SPEAR (Study of Picoplatin Efficacy After Relapse)

trial of intravenous picoplatin in SCLC is ongoing and compares

picoplatin with best supportive care to best supportive care alone.

The published median overall survival for best supportive care is 13

weeks for the platinum refractory and resistant patient group. Our

registrational trial is currently being conducted under a Special

Protocol Assessment from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and

is evaluating overall survival as the primary endpoint. Top-line

Phase 3 data is targeted for mid-2009.

* Colorectal Cancer: In January, we presented preliminary safety data

from our 50-patient Phase 1 dose-escalation study of picoplatin in

patients with metastatic colorectal cancer at the ASCO

Gastrointestinal Cancers Symposium. Picoplatin was shown to have

manageable toxicity in combination with 5-fluorouracil and

leucovorin. Picoplatin did not cause severe neurotoxicity (Grade 3

or higher), as is commonly seen in metastatic CRC patients treated

with oxaliplatin as part of the FOLFOX regimen. Current National

Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN) Clinical Practice Guidelines in

Oncology for colon cancer encourage the discontinuation of FOLFO
