Genasense Plus Chemotherapy Is Associated With Prolonged Survival in Patients With Relapsed/Refractory CLL Who Achieve Complete Remission
Date:12/10/2007

filed a New Drug Application (NDA) to FDA for the use of Genasense plus chemotherapy in patients with relapsed/refractory CLL in December 2005. In December 2006, FDA issued a non-approvable decision on this NDA. Genta has appealed this decision using FDA's established Dispute Resolution Process. An initial review of this appeal by FDA's Office of New Drugs declined to overturn the earlier decision. Genta has appealed the non-approvable decision to CDER, which is currently pending.

About Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia

CLL is the most common form of leukemia in adults. According to the American Cancer Society, approximately 8,000 patients will be diagnosed this year. More than 60,000 people in the U.S. currently have CLL. The disease arises in lymphocytes, a type of white blood cell that normally produces antibodies and serves important immune functions. Patients with CLL typically develop symptoms that may progress over a period of years, ultimately producing a generalized depression of immunity, marked increases in the size of spleen, liver and lymph nodes, and impaired production of other normal blood cells. Eventually, these problems may cause life-threatening complications, such as overwhelming infections and fatal bleeding. More information about CLL can be accessed at the website for the Lymphoma Research Foundation at: http://www.lymphoma.org.

About Genasense

Genasense inhibits production of Bcl-2, a protein made by cancer cells that is thought to block chemotherapy-induced apoptosis (programmed cell death). By reducing the amount of Bcl-2 in cancer cells, Genasense may enhance the effectiveness of current anticancer treatment. Genta is pursuing a broad clinical development program with Genasense evaluating its potential to treat various forms of cancer.
