Kinex Receives Research Support from the Hong Kong Innovation and Technology Commission (ITC)
Date:8/1/2013

BUFFALO, N.Y., Aug. 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Kinex Pharmaceuticals is pleased to announce that their application for the Small Entrepreneur Research Assistance Programme has been approved by the Innovation and Technology Commission of Hong Kong.  This financial support will be used to fund Kinex's development of preclinical data on both docetaxel (Taxotere) and doxorubicin (Doxil) when combined with HM30181A, an innovative P-glycoprotein pump inhibitor that converts IV drugs into oral formulations.  Additionally, it will provide the opportunity to work with key opinion leaders in Hong Kong as well as some of the foremost clinics and institutions.  These efforts will further broaden the Orascovery program and is expected to significantly increase Kinex's pipeline portfolio.

The Orascovery program is based on an important platform technology currently co-developed by Hanmi Pharmaceuticals and Kinex, compound HM30181A, a potent and selective P-glycoprotein (PGP) pump inhibitor.  Suppression of the PGP pump allows certain clinically important compounds (such as Paclitaxel and Irinotecan, among others) which would normally be effluxed back into the gastrointestinal tract and excreted, to enter the bloodstream and be bioavailable through oral administration.  Importantly, HM30181A is a very effective PGP inhibitor that is not systemically absorbed.

The Orascovery technology has led to the initiation of clinical trials being conducted with both an oral formulation of paclitaxel (Oraxol), currently in Phase II clinical trials in Korea, and an oral formulation of Irinotecan (Oratecan), which has completed a Phase I clinical trial in Korea. On July 22, Kinex announced that the US FDA had allowed the company's IND for Oraxol.  Trials will begin this fall.

In May of 2013, Kinex licensed the Oraxol and Oratecan rights for Australia and '/>"/>
