S*BIO's Oral JAK2 Inhibitor SB1518 Demonstrates Therapeutic Potential for the Treatment of Myeloproliferative and Other Hematological Disorders

Data Presented on Three S*BIO Compounds at The American Society of

Hematology 2007

SINGAPORE, Dec. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- S*BIO Pte Ltd today announced the data presentation on its most advanced compounds at The American Society of Hematology 49th Annual Meeting and Exposition in Atlanta, Georgia. An oral presentation made on its novel and selective JAK2 inhibitor SB1518 highlighted the therapeutic potential of SB1518 for the treatment of myeloproliferative disorders.

In addition, a poster was presented on S*BIO's orally-active "best-in- class" HDAC inhibitor SB939 detailing its therapeutic potential for the treatment of hematological malignancies while a poster on S*BIO's novel kinase inhibitor SB1317 showed data for the potential treatment of acute leukemias.

"We are pleased to announce data for the first time on our JAK2 inhibitor, SB1518, and its potential treatment of myeloproliferative disorders, an area of great unmet medical need," said Dr. Jan-Anders Karlsson, CEO of S*BIO. "We are currently conducting Phase I clinical trials for SB939 in Canada and Singapore, and expect the initiation of Phase I trials in various centers in the U.S. We are also delighted to report data on our Flt3-CDK inhibitor, SB1317. The data presented clearly demonstrate the strength and diversity of S*BIO's pipeline and validate our target-driven approach in developing 'best-in-class' and 'first-in-class' drugs."

Oral Presentation (Session: Molecular Pharmacology -- Novel Therapies I)

SB1518: A potent and orally-active JAK2 Inhibitor for the treatment of myeloproliferative disorders

SB1518, a potent ATP-competitive inhibitor of both JAK2 kinase, and its JAK2V617F mutant, demonstrated therapeutic potential for the treatment of myeloproliferative disorders caused by aberrant JAK2 signaling. JAK2 is the most common mutated gene in bcr-abl-negative chronic myeloproliferative disorders (MPDs).

Poster No. 757

SB939: A potent and orally-active HDAC inhibitor for the treatment of hematological malignancies

SB939, a novel histone deacetylase HDAC inhibitor with improved metabolic, pharmacokinetic and pharmacological properties compared to other HDAC inhibitors, is currently in Phase I clinical trials, and has demonstrated potential for the treatment of various types of hematological malignancies.

Poster No. 747

SB1317, a potent and orally-active FLT3-CDK inhibitor with high anti-tumor efficacy in models of hematological malignancies

SB1317, a novel potent inhibitor of FLT3 kinase and CDKs 1, 2 and 9, demonstrated therapeutic potential for the treatment of hematological malignancies. FLT3 is the most common mutated gene in acute myeloid leukemia

(AML), and CDK1, 2, and 9 are well-established anti-cancer targets due to their direct role in cell cycle control.
