Syndax Pharmaceuticals Announces Entinostat Data at 102nd Annual American Association for Cancer Research Meeting
Date:3/31/2011

WALTHAM, Mass., March 31, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Syndax Pharmaceuticals, Inc., a clinical-stage epigenetics oncology company, today announced 11 posters on entinostat, an oral, highly selective, class I histone deacetylase (HDAC) inhibitor, will be presented at the 102nd Annual American Association for Cancer Research meeting April 2 to April 6 in Orlando, FL.

"The breadth of exciting data being presented at AACR provides additional insight into the opportunities for Syndax to build out our entinostat development program," said Joanna Horobin, president and chief executive officer of Syndax. "The AACR presentations add to the growing body of evidence supporting the potential for entinostat in solid tumors including the promising results with entinostat in combination with Tarceva® in advanced non-small-cell lung cancer which were presented at the end of last year. Recently we completed our randomized, placebo-controlled phase 2 clinical trial in metastatic breast cancer which will be presented at a scientific conference later this year and are aggressively moving forward with a pivotal program in this patient population." The following posters will be presented Monday, April 4: Time:

Exhibit Hall A4-C, Poster Session 12 About Entinostat Entinostat is an orally bioavailable, highly selective, class I histone deacetylase (HDAC) inhibitor with a long half-life that allows for weekly or every-other-week dosing. Entinostat is being studied in advanced breast cancer in combination with aromatase inhibitors and recently completed a randomized, placebo-controlled phase 2 trial in this patient population. The results will be presented at a scientific conference later this year. Entinostat also is being studied in various cancers including advanced non-small-cell lung cancer and advanced colorectal cancer in combination with azacitidine. At the end of last year, results were presented from a randomized phase 2 study showing a four-month survival advantage when entinostat was added to erlotinib in patients with lung cancers expressing high levels of E-cadherin. Syndax has several studies ongoing under a cooperative research and development agreement with the National Cancer Institute.

Research has shown that HDACs are involved in the expression of various genes, such as the estrogen receptor, that regulate cell growth, differentiation and apoptosis. Such genes are frequently silenced in cancer cells through the over-expression of enzymes including HDACs. HDACs are therefore recognized as promising targets for cancer treatment. Further, studies have demonstrated that HDAC inhibition can significantly enhance anti-cancer activity when used in combination with a broad range of anti-cancer agents. The potential therefore exists to overcome tumor resistance to targeted agents.
