DNAtrix, Inc. to Present Clinical Study Results for DNX-2401 (Delta 24-RGD), A Conditionally Replication-Competent Adenovirus
Date:6/17/2013

HOUSTON, June 17, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- DNAtrix Inc., experts in oncolytic virus development, today announced that its CEO will present clinical data on the company's lead product, DNX-2401, at the Replicating Oncolytic Virus Therapeutic meeting in Quebec City, Canada on June 18, 2013.

Dr. Frank Tufaro, DNAtrix's CEO and a leader in the field of oncolytic virus therapy, will present results from a clinical study entitled A PHASE I TRIAL OF A CONDITIONALLY REPLICATION-COMPETENT ADENOVIRUS DNX-2401 (FORMERLY KNOWN AS DELTA-24-RGD) FOR RECURRENT MALIGNANT GLIOMAS that evaluated DNX-2401 for patients diagnosed with recurrent glioblastoma. Dr. Tufaro will present study data indicating that DNX-2401 has been well tolerated in 37 patients with no dose-limiting toxicity. Additionally, DNX-2401 has demonstrated highly impressive activity and efficacy.

"We are extremely pleased to have participated in bringing DNX-2401 into the clinic, and are encouraged by the results from this clinical study," said Dr. Tufaro. "DNX-2401 has not only revealed a positive safety profile but also an ability to selectively kill glioblastoma cells. This is exciting because it can lead to complete tumor destruction."

About Glioblastoma and DNX-2401
Glioblastoma is a devastating primary brain tumor resistant to conventional therapies and the second most common cause of death from intracranial disease. The lack of effective therapy for brain tumors has led to intense investigations of novel therapeutic approaches that use vectors and recombinant viruses. Oncolytic virus therapy is based on the concept of using live viruses to selectively infect and replicate in cancer cells, with minimal destruction of normal tissue. Replication amplifies the input dose of the oncolytic virus and helps spread the agent to adjacent tumor cells. DNX-2401, a conditionally replication-competent adenovirus, is being developed for the treatment of several cancer indications including patients with recurrent glioblastoma. DNX-2401 is the culmination of more than a decade of scientific and clinical research and is the most potent and effective oncolytic virus delivered to human brain tumors to date.  DNAtrix will initiate a Phase II clinical study later this year.

About DNAtrix, Inc.
