Cerulean Pharma's Lead Candidate Selected as a "Top 10 Oncology Project to Watch"
Date:11/19/2012

CAMBRIDGE, Mass., Nov. 19, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Cerulean Pharma Inc., a leader in developing dynamically tumor-targeted nanopharmaceuticals, today announced that its lead candidate, CRLX101, was named as one of the "Top 10 Oncology Projects to Watch" by an independent panel of experts convened by Elsevier Business Intelligence and the Campbell Alliance.

The panel selected compounds using various criteria, including market size and medical need, development history, supporting science, potential for expansion beyond the initial indications and multi-level partnering opportunities.

As part of this recognition, Christopher Guiffre, senior vice president and chief business officer of Cerulean, will present the CRLX101 opportunity at Windhover's Therapeutic Area Partnerships meeting taking place on November 28 through 30, 2012, at the Westin Copley in Boston. Mr. Guiffre's presentation will occur on Thursday, November 29 at 1:40 p.m. Eastern Time.

"Cerulean's nanopharmaceuticals dynamically target tumors by entering through the large pores associated with blood vessels leading to tumors and releasing their drug inside the tumor over time," said Oliver Fetzer, Ph.D., president and chief executive officer of Cerulean. "This approach, which relies not on the patient's genetic profile but on a characteristic of blood vessels common to many tumors, allows us to evaluate CRLX101 in multiple tumor types as a monotherapy and in combination with Avastin®."
