Onconova Therapeutics presents new data demonstrating radioprotection by Ex-RAD at RRS annual meeting
Date:9/27/2010

Newtown, PA, September 27, 2010 Onconova Therapeutics, Inc. is presenting new data in five posters and an oral presentation this week summarizing several studies with the company's radioprotectant Ex-RAD at the 56th Annual Meeting of the Radiation Research Society (RRS), September 25-29 in Maui, Hawaii. In vivo studies show that Ex-RAD, upon oral administration, produced a significant increase in survival versus placebo-treated groups in mice exposed to lethal whole body irradiation (WBI), for both prophylactic pre-treatment and mitigation post-treatment. Ex-RAD is the only known oral radioprotectant that has shown such activity in animal model systems.

Collectively, these presentations demonstrate the ability of Ex-RAD to provide radioprotective benefit by injection and oral delivery, an in-depth understanding of the kinetics and metabolism of Ex-RAD, and radioprotective benefit to human bone marrow, as well as the gastrointestinal and hematopoietic systems in mice.

Onconova, a biopharmaceutical company developing novel chemical entities to treat cancer and protect normal cells, is developing Ex-RAD, a novel radioprotectant with potential utility in bio-defense or bio-terrorism, which could prove useful as a prophylactic agent for first-responder protection from the harmful effects of radiation from nuclear accidents or weapons of mass destruction (WMD).

These presentations result from an on-going Onconova collaboration among investigators at a number of institutions: AFRRI, (The Armed Forces Radiobiology Research Institute) a part of the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences (USUHS); Georgetown University, Department of Biochemistry and Molecular & Cellular Biology; Long Island University, Arnold & Marie Schwartz College of Pharmacy; and the Department of Oncological Sciences, Mt. Sinai School of Medicine.
