Cylene Pharmaceuticals Initiates Phase I Trial With CX-4945 -Breakthrough First-in Class Inhibitor of CK2
Date:1/5/2009

SAN DIEGO, Jan. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- Cylene Pharmaceuticals announced today that it has initiated a Phase I clinical trial of its oral CK2 protein kinase inhibitor, CX-4945, in patients with advanced solid tumors, Castleman's disease, or multiple myeloma. The primary endpoints of the oral dose escalating trial are determination of safety, tolerance and PK properties of CX-4945 and to select the appropriate dose for Phase II trials. In addition, multiple mechanism-related pharmacodynamic biomarkers that were validated in preclinical studies will also be evaluated in the trial to assess the ability of CX-4945 to hit its target in patients.

CX-4945 is a first-in-class, orally administered small molecule anticancer agent that delivers highly selective and potent inhibition of CK2, a constitutively active protein kinase that is overexpressed in a wide range of cancers. CK2 drives the excessive proliferation phenotype of cancer cells through its potentiating role in key cell survival pathways and angiogenesis. CX-4945 demonstrates potent tumor regression activity in murine xenograft models, as well as favorable PK/ADMET and safety properties in preclinical studies.

"CX-4945 is a breakthrough molecule for Cylene," said Dr. William Rice, President and Chief Executive Officer of Cylene Pharmaceuticals. "CK2 overexpression drives key cell survival pathways and proliferation of cancer cells, but it has been notoriously difficult to inhibit because it has an unusual active site. CX-4945 represents the first potent and selective inhibitor of CK2 with a favorable safety profile and the ability to promote tumor regressions as a single agent in preclinical studies. We are delighted to have advanced CX-4945 into the clinic ahead of schedule, and we are thoughtfully planning our Phase II program in particular CK2 driven cancers."

In this Phase I trial, CX-4945 will be administered to patients orally twice a day, for three conse
