Dendreon Presents Preclinical Data Demonstrating Activity of Trp-p8 agonist, D-3263, in Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia
Date:5/21/2008

vels of Trp-p8 compared to the normal prostates. In comparing untreated BPH-induced prostates to those treated with D-3263, treatment with D-3263 resulted in a 39 percent reduction in prostate weight compared to control (p=0.004). In addition, treatment with D-3263 resulted in a 98 percent reduction (2221.2 pg/ml versus 43.1 pg/ml) in plasma dihydrotestosterone (DHT) levels (p=0.004) suggesting D-3263 is affecting androgen metabolism, which is a known stimulant for BPH and prostate cancer. These effects were seen in a dose-dependent manner, achieving efficacy comparable to finasteride. Histopathological examination post treatment with D-3263 indicated that reduction of prostate size and weight was due to a return to normalcy. Changes in Trp-p8 expression and plasma DHT levels correlated with both efficacy and dose.

About Trp-p8

Trp-p8 (also known as Trp-M8) was identified through Dendreon's in-house discovery efforts. It is an ion channel that is triggered by cold temperatures and small-molecule agonists. In normal human tissues Trp-p8 is expressed predominantly in the prostate where it is over-expressed in BPH and prostate cancer, as well as a range of other cancers including breast, lung and colon. Dendreon has synthesized bioavailable small molecule agonists that activate the Trp-p8 ion channel and induce cell death. The lead molecule, D-3263, is undergoing preclinical evaluation in anticipation of an investigational new drug application to be filed with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for clinical evaluation in cancer patients.
