Celator(R) Pharmaceuticals Presents Phase 1 Results With CPX-351 in Patients With Advanced Leukemia at the American Society of Hematology Meeting
Date:12/9/2008

s in the 1st salvage setting (patients in first relapse or with refractory disease) and 3 CRs were achieved in 22 patients in the 2nd or greater salvage settings. In addition, CRs were observed in patients older than 70 years, in those with complex cytogenetic abnormalities, and in patients with prior cytarabine/anthracycline treatment.

"We began enrolling patients in a Phase 2 study in newly diagnosed, elderly patients with AML and we expect to start enrollment soon in a Phase 2 study in patients with AML in first relapse."

CPX-351 has been granted orphan drug status by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration for the treatment of AML.
