ADVENTRX Completes Patient Enrollment in ANX-514 Bioequivalence Study
Date:2/5/2009

SAN DIEGO, Feb. 5 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- ADVENTRX Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NYSE Alternext US: ANX), announced today that it has completed patient enrollment in its bioequivalence study of ANX-514 (docetaxel emulsion for injection). The Company is on track to announce results from this study in the second quarter of 2009.

ANX-514 is a reformulation of the blockbuster chemotherapeutic agent, Taxotere(R), an anti-cancer agent that is approved to treat breast, non-small cell lung, prostate, head and neck & gastric cancers. In 2007, the aggregate worldwide market for Taxotere was in excess of $3 billion.

The study is a multi-center, open-label, randomized two-period crossover comparison of ANX-514 and Taxotere, with a primary endpoint of pharmacokinetic equivalence of ANX-514 and Taxotere and a goal of 28 evaluable patients. The safety of a single dose of ANX-514 is being evaluated as a secondary endpoint. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has indicated that this single study, should it demonstrate bioequivalence between ANX-514 and Taxotere, would provide sufficient human data to support the submission of an NDA.

About ANX-514 (docetaxel emulsion)

ANX-514 is a novel nano-emulsion formulation of the chemotherapy drug docetaxel, which is marketed under the brand name Taxotere. ANX-514 is formulated without polysorbate 80 or other detergents and is intended to reduce the severity and/or incidence of hypersensitivity reactions. Docetaxel is an anti-cancer agent that acts by disrupting the cellular microtubular network that is essential for cell division. Immunosuppressant premedication is recommended for docetaxel therapy to reduce the incidence and severity of hypersensitivity reactions. Docetaxel is approved to treat breast, non-small cell lung, prostate, gastric and head and neck cancers.
