Sunesis Reports Financial Results for the First Quarter 2009
Date:5/6/2009

h (AACR) Annual Meeting in Denver, Colorado. Results from nonclinical translational research studies identified potent voreloxin activity in breast cancer biopsies from both ductal and metastatic tumors. Activity compared favorably with compounds currently in clinical use for the treatment of breast cancer, including cisplatin and topoisomerase II inhibitors doxorubicin and etoposide. Data also established an enhanced sensitivity to voreloxin in BRCA2 mutant cell lines, indicating that BRCA mutant tumors may be particularly sensitive to voreloxin. These data complement previous reports of potent voreloxin activity in biopsies from triple-negative breast cancers (AACR 2008) and support a rationale for potential future investigation of voreloxin's clinical activity in breast cancer patients.
  • In March, all three of the Company's voreloxin abstracts submitted for consideration at the 45th American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) Annual Meeting to be held in Orlando, Florida were accepted. Each abstract represents one of the ongoing clinical trials of voreloxin: single-agent voreloxin in newly diagnosed elderly acute myeloid leukemia (AML), voreloxin in combination with cytarabine in relapsed/refractory AML and single-agent voreloxin in women with platinum-resistant ovarian cancer. In lieu of a conference call today, Sunesis management will host a conference call during the ASCO Annual Meeting to discuss the voreloxin clinical data to be presented at that meeting. Below are the details of the voreloxin presentations and the conference call information will be provided via press release several days prior to the ASCO Annual Meeting, which begins May 29.

  • Saturday May 30, 8:00AM to 12:00PM (poster presentation)

    Abstract #7048

    Title: "A phase II study of voreloxin as single agent therapy for elderly patients (pts) with newly diagnosed acute myeloid leukemia (AML)."
