Telik Announces Presentation of New Data on the Characterization of Novel Ezatiostat (TELINTRA®, TLK199) Analogs at American Association for Cancer Research Annual Meeting
Date:4/5/2011

ing to the acceleration of recovery of neutrophil levels in preclinical models of chemotherapy-induced neutropenia.  Further investigation of the most potent and selective analogs in biochemical and cellular assays is underway to assess their potential as clinical development candidates for the treatment of hematologic malignancies.

Select ezatiostat analogs were evaluated for toxicity as well as for acceleration of recovery of neutrophil levels in a standard preclinical model of 5-fluorouracil chemotherapy-induced neutropenia.  The compounds were well-tolerated when administered at doses up to 200 mg/kg and, like ezatiostat, led to a significantly accelerated recovery in the 5-FU-induced neutropenia model.

"We are pleased to report new data on novel ezatiostat analogs, which augments the substantial scientific foundation and intellectual property estate of this program", stated James Keck Ph.D., Vice President of Biology Research.  "The availability of the analogs will help to further our understanding of ezatiostat treatment for MDS as well as the role of GST P1-1 in the development and progression of MDS."

Ezatiostat treatment has been shown to cause a clinically significant and sustained reduction in red-blood-cell transfusions, transfusion independence, and multilineage hematologic improvement responses in patients with MDS.  Positive results of a Phase 2 multicenter study that evaluated ezatiostat administered on two extended dose schedules in 89 heavily pre-treated patients with low to intermediate-1 risk MDS were recently reported in the Proceedings of the American Society of Hematology Annual Meeting 2010; 116: Abstract 2910.  Phase 2 Randomized Multicenter Study of Extended Dosing Schedules of Oral Ezatiostat HCl (Telintra), a Glutathione Analog Prodrug GST P1-1 Inhibitor in Low to Intermediate-1 Risk Myelodysplastic Syndrome: Raza A, Galili N, Smith SE, Godwin J, Boccia RV, Myint H, et al.
