About Cutaneous T-cell Lymphoma

The cutaneous T-cells lymphomas are comprised of a number of non-Hodgkins T-cell lymphomas, including mycosis fungoides and Sezary syndrome, which have their primary manifestations in the skin. According to the Lymphoma Research Foundation, CTCL comprises about 2% to 3% of the estimated 63,000 new cases of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma diagnosed annually.

About PDX (pralatrexate)

PDX is a novel, small molecule chemotherapeutic agent that inhibits dihydrofolate reductase, or DHFR, a folic acid (folate)-dependent enzyme involved in the building of nucleic acid, or DNA, and other processes. PDX was rationally designed for efficient transport into tumor cells via the reduced folate carrier, or RFC-1, and effective intracellular drug retention. We believe these biochemical features, together with preclinical and clinical data in a variety of tumors, suggest that PDX may have a favorable safety and efficacy profile relative to methotrexate and certain other DHFR inhibitors.
