S*BIO's Novel JAK2 Inhibitor Pacritinib (SB1518) and Histone Deacetylase Inhibitor Pracinostat (SB939) Demonstrate Promising Activity in Phase 2 Studies for Patients with Myelofibrosis (MF)
Date:11/22/2011

acetylase Inhibitor Pracinostat (SB939) for Patients with Myelofibrosis
Pracinostat demonstrated activity as a single agent in patients with MF. Most responses consisted of reductions in spleen and/or liver size with minimal activity on anemia.

Pacritinib is a small molecule JAK2-selective kinase inhibitor, which has demonstrated high potency in preclinical models against both the wild type JAK2 kinase and the JAK2 kinase with the V617F mutation. The V617F mutation is found in high frequencies in myeloproliferative disorders such as MF. It is estimated that approximately 50% of patients with MF possess the JAK2 mutation.

Pracinostat is an inhibitor of a group of enzymes called histone deacetylases (HDAC) that is implicated in tumourigenesis. Pracinostat is designed to be a "best-in-class" HDAC inhibitor.
