s one death in the q14d schedule due to renal failure from dehydration, possibly related to treatment. About Ovarian CancerNearly all ovarian cancers will become resistant or refractory to platinum-based therapy over time.  Ovarian cancer is the fifth leading cause of cancer deaths among women, accounting for more deaths than any other cancer of the female reproductive system.(2)  Approximately 22,000 new cases of ovarian cancer will be diagnosed and 15,000 deaths are expected to be caused by ovarian cancer in the United States this year.(2)  Initial response rates to treatment with platinum-based agents can be as high as 80 percent, but most patients recur.  Treatment options following relapse are limited and overall long-term survival among ovarian cancer patients has not changed significantly in nearly 40 years.(3)  Agents currently approved by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration to treat women with platinum-resistant ovarian cancer have modest overall response rates of between 6.5 to 13.8 percent.(4,5)

About NKTR-102 Nektar is developing NKTR-102, a next-generation topoisomerase I inhibitor with reduced peak concentrations and a continuous concentration profile.  NKTR-102 was invented by Nektar using its advanced polymer conjugate technology platform, and is the first oncology product candidate to leverage Nektar's releasable polymer technology platform.  

In addition to the fully-enrolled Phase 2 studies in platinum-refractory/resistant ovarian cancer and metastatic breast cancer, NKTR-102 is also being tested in a separate Phase 2 clinical trial in patients with second-line colorectal cancer and a Phase 1 clinical trial evaluating NKTR-102 in combination with 5-FU therapy.  An expansion arm of the Phase 2 study of single-agent NKTR-102 in platinum-refractory/resistant ovarian cancer in women who failed prior Doxil therapy is also currently enrolling.  A Phase 3 study of single-agent NKTR-102 is
