Jennerex Publishes Clinical Trial Data With Lead Product JX-594 Demonstrating Efficacy Against Liver Cancer and Associated Hepatitis B Virus
Date:7/22/2008

Study Demonstrates Feasibility and Efficacy of Treating Patients with

Primary Liver Cancer

SAN FRANCISCO, and YONGIN-SI, South Korea, July 22 /PRNewswire/ -- Jennerex, Inc. (San Francisco, CA and Ottawa, Ontario), and its South Korean partner Green Cross Corp., announced today that novel findings from a Phase I clinical trial of its first-in-class lead product JX-594 demonstrated that the product was well-tolerated and resulted in clear anti-cancer efficacy in patients with liver cancer. Three patients with advanced treatment-refractory hepatitis B virus (HBV)-associated hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) were treated with JX-594. Objective radiographic responses were demonstrated. Serum tumor markers, which correlate with tumor burden over time in patients, decreased by up to 95 percent after treatment. JX-594 replication, its release into the circulation and distant tumor targeting and infection were demonstrated. JX-594 administration resulted in tumor vascular shutdown. Oncolytic virotherapy was also shown, for the first time, to suppress underlying HBV replication in HCC patients by over 50 percent in all three patients. A Phase II clinical trial is now underway for JX-594 in liver cancer. The data were published in the journal Molecular Therapy.

"These clinical results with JX-594 in end-stage liver cancer patients represent a major step forward for JX-594 against this difficult to treat cancer. We are excited by the potential to fulfill the huge unmet medical needs for these desperate patients with no curative treatment options, specifically by treating their tumors and potentially their underlying Hepatitis B viral infection. As a lead site for the on-going Phase II trial of JX-594 for liver cancer, we look forward to extending these results in a larger number of patients," said Dr. Tony Reid, M.D., Ph.D., Associate Professor and Director of Clinical Investigation at the University of California, San Diego Moores
