Cylene to Present Advances in its Oral Inhibitor of CK2 at AACR Annual Meeting
Date:4/17/2009

SAN DIEGO, April 17 /PRNewswire/ -- Cylene Pharmaceuticals announced today that it will be presenting new data on recent advances of its small molecule anticancer agents during a symposium and several poster presentations at the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) annual meeting, to be held on April 18-22 in Denver, Colorado.

Cylene scientists will unveil the first public description of CX-4945, a first-in-class oral inhibitor of protein kinase CK2. CK2 overexpression is well documented in many cancers and represents a previously unexploited molecular target. CX-4945 is a potent, selective inhibitor of CK2 and modulates key survival pathways in cancer cells. CX-4945, which has broad therapeutic potential in common cancers as well as in niche indications, has advanced rapidly into Phase I clinical trials.

The oral symposium will address the identification of pathway-specific biomarkers, while the posters will address the discovery and characterization of CX-4945 and the ability of CX-4945 to inhibit CK2-driven HIF-1alpha transcription and angiogenesis in hypoxia. In a separate poster, Dr. John Lim will describe the advancement of quarfloxin (CX-3543) into Phase II clinical trials in carcinoid/neuroendocrine tumors. The presentation schedule is:

Sunday, April 19, 2009: 8:00 AM CX-4945, a small molecule inhibitor of CK2, inhibits angiogenesis by affecting the vascular endothelium and suppressing hypoxia-activated HIF-1alpha transcription - Tumor Biology 2, Abstract 145

Tuesday, April 21, 2009: 8:00 AM Quarfloxin phase I clinical data and scientific findings supporting the selection of carcinoid/neuroendocrine tumors as the phase II indication - Clinical Research 12, Abstract 3599

Tuesday, April 21, 2009: 1:00 PM Discovery and characterization of CX-4945 a selective orally bioavailable small molecule inhibitor of protein kinase CK2: Phase I initiated - Experimental and Molecular Therapeutics 34, Abstract 4660

Tuesday, April 21, 2009: 2:00 PM CX-4945, a potent and selective inhibitor of CK2, modulates PI3K/AKT signaling and phosphorylation of p21 in vitro and in vivo: Implications for biomarker development - Experimental and Molecular Therapeutics 37, Minisymposium, Abstract 4768
