NEW YORK, March 7, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Keryx Biopharmaceuticals (Nasdaq: KERX) today announced that the final dataset from the Phase 3 short-term clinical trial of Zerenex™ (ferric citrate) for the treatment of hyperphosphatemia in end-stage renal disease patients on dialysis has been selected for oral presentation at the upcoming National Kidney Foundation (NKF) Spring Clinical Meetings, to be held April 26-30, 2011 in Las Vegas, Nevada.  

The Zerenex data will be presented by David S. Goldfarb, M.D., Chief of Nephrology, New York VA Medical Center, Professor of Medicine & Physiology, NYU School of Medicine, in a presentation entitled "Advantages and Disadvantages of Existing Phosphate Binders."  This presentation will be the first part in a session entitled "Future Directions and Challenges for Phosphate Binders."  The session will take place on Thursday, April 28, 2011, 8:00am – 8:30am PT.  

On November 30, 2010, the Company issued a press release announcing positive top-line results from this Phase 3 short-term study.  

In accordance with the Company's Special Protocol Assessment (SPA) agreement with the FDA, the Phase 3 clinical program for Zerenex consists of two clinical studies, the completed short-term study, and a long-term safety and efficacy study that is currently ongoing.

About Keryx Biopharmaceuticals, Inc.  Keryx Biopharmaceuticals is focused on the acquisition, development and commercialization of medically important pharmaceutical products for the treatment of cancer and renal disease. Keryx is developing KRX-0401 (perifosine), a novel, potentially first-in-class, oral anti-cancer agent that inhibits Akt activation in the phosphoinositide 3-kinase (PI3K) pathway, and also affects a number of other key signal transduction pathways, including the JNK pathway, all of which are pathways associated with programmed cell death, cell growth, cell differentiation and cell survival. KRX-0401 has demonstrated both safety and clinical efficacy in several tumor types, both as a single agent and in combination with approved therapies. KRX-0401 is currently in Phase 3 clinical development for both refractory advanced colorectal cancer and multiple myeloma, and in Phase 1 and 2 clinical development for several other tumor types. Each of the KRX-0401 Phase 3 studies is being conducted under a Special Protocol Assessment (SPA) agreement with the FDA. Keryx is also developing Zerenex (ferric citrate), an oral, ferric iron-based compound that has the capacity to bind to phosphate and form non-absorbable complexes. The Phase 3 clinical program of Zerenex for the treatment for hyperphosphatemia (elevated phosphate levels) in patients with end-stage renal disease on dialysis is being conducted pursuant to an SPA agreement with the FDA. Keryx is headquartered in New York City.KERYX CONTACT:Lauren FischerDirector, Investor RelationsKeryx Biopharmaceuticals, Inc.Tel: 212.531.5965
