BioLineRx Announces Publication of Positive Pre-Clinical Results for BL-8040 in Treatment of Thrombocytopenia
Date:8/5/2013

ave previously stated that we intend to pursue additional hematological indications for this promising asset. The results of this study, which provide evidence for the possible therapeutic use of BL-8040 for modulating platelet numbers in thrombocytopenic conditions, offer new possibilities which we may choose to explore further in pre-clinical and early-stage clinical trials. In addition, the ability of this novel drug to reduce thrombocytopenia, a frequent side effect of chemotherapy, makes BL-8040 even more appealing as a candidate for blood cancer treatment."

About BL-8040
BL-8040 is a clinical-stage drug candidate for the treatment of acute myeloid leukemia, as well as other types of hematological cancers. It is a short peptide that functions as a high-affinity antagonist for CXCR4, a chemokine receptor that is directly involved in tumor progression, angiogenesis (growth of new blood vessels in the tumor), metastasis (spread of the disease to other organs or organ parts) and cell survival. CXCR4 is over-expressed in more than 70% of human cancers and its expression often correlates with disease severity. In a Phase 1/2, open-label, dose escalation, safety and efficacy clinical trial in 18 multiple myeloma patients, BL-8040 demonstrated an excellent safety profile at all doses tested and was highly effective in the mobilization of hematopoietic stem cells and white blood cells from the bone marrow to the peripheral blood.

BL-8040 also mobilizes cancer cells from the bone marrow and other sites and may therefore sensitize these cells to chemo- and bio-based anti-cancer therapy. It has also demonstrated a direct anti-cancer effect by inducing apoptosis (cell death). Pre-clinical studies show that BL-8040 is efficient, both alone and in combination with the anti-cancer drug Rituximab, in reducing bone marrow metastasis of lymphoma cells and stimulating lymphoma cell death. BL-8040 was licensed by BioLineRx from Biokine Therapeutics and was previou
