SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO, Calif., Feb. 15 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Poniard Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (Nasdaq: PARD), a biopharmaceutical company focused on oncology, today announced that it is presenting safety and efficacy data in prostate cancer patients from its Phase 1 study of picoplatin, the Company's lead product candidate, at the 2008 Genitourinary (GU) Cancers Symposium, a meeting of the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) that is being held in San Francisco.

"The data we have generated with picoplatin in prostate cancer indicate a PSA (prostate specific antigen) response of 65 percent which suggests an improvement compared to docetaxel therapy alone," said Jerry McMahon, Ph.D., chairman and CEO of Poniard Pharmaceuticals. "In addition, the tolerability of picoplatin with full-dose docetaxel supports our ongoing Phase 2 study that we believe will confirm and extend these initial findings.
