Publication in Clinical Cancer Research Confirms Ability of Peregrine's Bavituximab to Target Tumor Blood Vessels with Excellent Specificity
Date:3/3/2008

or activity seen to date with bavituximab," said Dr. Thorpe, professor of pharmacology at UT Southwestern and a member of Peregrine's Scientific Resource Board. "Bavituximab's ability to achieve unusually clear images of tumors in living animals also suggests that it might have utility for the non-invasive imaging of tumors in cancer patients. Although the study was conducted in rats bearing prostate tumors, we expect that the observations will extend to other solid tumor types as well."

In the study, researchers administered radiolabeled bavituximab to rats with prostate tumors and then conducted molecular imaging studies of the rats over the next several days. The results showed that radiolabeled bavituximab localized to the tumor blood vessels with great specificity. In these subjects, 22 times as much bavituximab localized to the tumor compared to the liver when measured 72 hours post-injection. The study further showed no specific localization of bavituximab to blood or other tissues including the heart, kidney, intestine, muscle, bone and brain. The tumor blood vessel-selective targeting observed in vivo in the study was confirmed by further bio-distribution analyses and by histology studies.

"This important new peer-reviewed study reinforces earlier evidence that bavituximab targets tumor blood vessels with excellent specificity," said Steven W. King, president and CEO of Peregrine. "As we continue to advance the cancer clinical program for bavituximab, these types of studies are expanding the body of scientific evidence demonstrating the highly specific nature of bavituximab's ability to target PS on tumor blood vessels."

Bavituximab is a monoclonal antibody that binds to a phospholipid called phosphatidylserine that is usually located inside normal cells, but which becomes exposed on the outside of the cells that line the blood vessels of tumors, creating a specific target for anti-cancer treatments. Bavituximab is believed to help mobi
