Abbott to Present Data on Novel Cancer Treatments at American Society of Clinical Oncology Annual Meeting
Date:5/15/2008

3.5 hours. In seven out of 20 cases (35 percent), DP-PS correctly predicted the eventual outcome. These results seem to indicate that PS derived from DP model showed better correlation with drug exposure and could predict patient outcome better than Ktrans.

In a separate analysis, the effects of ABT-869 on biomarkers of angiogenesis were evaluated. Correlations of dose and pharmacokinetics of ABT-869, with serum biomarkers, tumor DCE-MRI tracer kinetics, proteinuria and hypertension were assessed. Results appeared to indicate that ABT-869 induced dose-dependent changes in serum biomarkers are consistent with anti-angiogenic activity. However, these serum biomarkers had limited value in predicting safety, i.e., proteinuria or hypertension. The utility of tumor flow and permeability changes on DCE-MRI in predicting proteinuria should be further examined. Updated information will be presented at the ASCO Annual Meeting.

Background on Abbott's Oncology Pipeline

Bcl-2 Family Protein Inhibitors (ABT-263)

Researchers have been interested in the Bcl-2 family of proteins since their role in preventing apoptosis -- the natural process by which damaged or unwanted cells die and are cleared from the body -- was proven more than a decade ago. Discovered by Abbott scientists, ABT-263 restores programmed cell death, a natural mechanism for the elimination of cancerous cells, by inhibiting the function of Bcl-2 proteins.

Bcl-2 proteins play a central role in regulating apoptosis, as well as tumor formation, tumor growth and resistance to treatment. Pioneering work in structural biology at Abbott established how the Bcl-2 family proteins interact with one another, leading researchers to develop a novel compound that causes cancer cells to self-destruct.

ABT-263 is in Phase I/II clinical trials for lymphomas and solid tumors, including small cell lung cancer. Preclinical data has shown that Abbott's Bcl-2 family protein inhibitors bind to Bc
