Date:1/13/2014

ROCKVILLE, Md., Jan. 13, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- EntreMed, Inc. (Nasdaq: ENMD), a clinical-stage pharmaceutical company developing therapeutics for the treatment of diseases, announced today that it has moved to expand its Phase 2 clinical trial for its drug candidate ENMD-2076 in advanced ovarian clear cell carcinoma (OCCC) with the submission of a new drug global clinical trial application with China's Food and Drug Administration (CFDA).  The ongoing Phase 2 trial is currently being conducted at Princess Margaret Cancer Centre in Toronto, along with participation from up to seven additional cancer centers in Canada and the U.S.

This application is the Company's third new drug global clinical trial application with the CFDA.  The first was announced in January 2013 for triple-negative breast cancer, which is being conducted at the University of Colorado and at Indiana University. The second was announced in June 2013 for the advanced/metastatic soft tissue sarcoma trial, which is being conducted at Princess Margaret Hospital.  More information about the Company's clinical trials can be found at www.clinicaltrials.gov.

Ken K. Ren, Ph.D., EntreMed's Chief Executive Officer, commented, "We are advancing our clinical trials in targeted patient populations in North America, while expanding the trials into China to reach our goal of achieving clinical inflection points more cost-effectively. This North America/China business model is compelling because it not only will enable us to develop more drugs with efficient resources, but also will accelerate product entry into China's market at least three years earlier compared with more traditional approaches.  In addition, the U.S. FDA recently has accepted the data from our crossover bioavailability study for ENMD-2076, thereby approving the use of ENMD-2076 in formulated dosage form for our clinical studies based on its pharmacokinetic equivalence to the non-formulated dosage form. This provides us with a significant advantage in future product manufacturing."

Dr. Ren added, "We are actively pursuing in-licensing opportunities for additional drug candidates for development under this same global approach. We have further strengthened our internal product development capabilities in China with the recent establishment of an R&D Center in Beijing, and have added a technology leader with extensive large pharma experience in pharmaceutical technology and product development, along with a proven track record of bringing products from early stage proof-of-concept development to late-stage clinical trials." 

About ENMD-2076

ENMD-2076 is an orally-active, Aurora A/angiogenic kinase inhibitor with a unique kinase selectivity profile and multiple mechanisms of action.  ENMD-2076 has been shown to inhibit a distinct profile of angiogenic tyrosine kinase targets in addition to the Aurora A kinase.  Aurora kinases are key regulators of mitosis (cell division), and are often over-expressed in human cancers.  ENMD-2076 also targets the VEGFR, Flt-3 and FGFR3 kinases, which have been shown to play important roles in the pathology of several cancers.  ENMD-2076 has shown promising activity in Phase 1 clinical trials in solid tumor cancers including ovarian, breast, liver, renal and sarcoma, as well as in leukemia and multiple myeloma, and is completing a Phase 2 trial for ovarian cancer.  EntreMed is conducting a dual-institutional Phase 2 study of ENMD-2076 in triple-negative breast cancer, a Phase 2 study in advanced/metastatic soft tissue sarcoma, and a Phase 2 study in advanced ovarian clear cell carcinomas. ENMD-2076 has received orphan drug designation from the U.S. FDA for the treatment of ovarian cancer, multiple myeloma and acute myeloid leukemia.
