YM BioSciences Reports Positive Interim Data Including Substantial Anemia Response from Phase I/II Trial of JAK1/JaK2 Inhibitor CYT387
Date:12/6/2010

dose (MTD) was declared at 300 mg/day.

CYT387 was well tolerated. The overall discontinuation rate was 5% and there were no patient withdrawals for drug-related adverse events. No Grade 4 non-hematological toxicities were observed. Grade 3 non-hematologic adverse events were infrequent and included increased transaminases (n=2), headache/head pressure (n=2), and increased lipase (n=3), No QTc prolongations greater than Grade 1 were observed.

Some patients experienced a "first-dose effect" characterized by Grade 1 lightheadedness (26 subjects, 43%) and hypotension (31 subjects, 52%). The phenomenon was self-limiting, generally resolved within 3-4 hours and did not recur after the first dose.

Grade 3/4 thrombocytopenia was seen in 16 (27%) subjects. It should be noted that the minimum platelet count specified in the inclusion criteria for the study is 50,000/mcl. The majority of Grade 3/4 thrombocytopenia were observed in subjects where baseline platelet counts were less than 100,000/mcl.

Treatment-emergent Grade 3 anemia was seen in four subjects (7%). None of the subjects developed new red cell transfusion requirements. Treatment-emergent Grade 3/4 neutropenia was seen in three subjects (5%).
