PALO ALTO, Calif., Aug. 3 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Telik, Inc. (Nasdaq: TELK) today announced that the positive results from a Phase 1 multicenter, dose escalation study of ezatiostat hydrochloride (TELINTRA, TLK199) tablets in patients with Myelodysplastic Syndrome (MDS) have been published in a leading peer reviewed journal, Blood, 25 June 2009; Vol. 113, No. 26, pp. 6533-6540. Positive results from a separate Phase 1-2a study in MDS patients involving an intravenous formulation of TELINTRA were published earlier in the Journal of Hematology and Oncology,13 May 2009; Vol. 2, No.20, pp. 20-32.

Background on MDS and TELINTRA

MDS is a heterogeneous group of blood stem cell disorders of increasing incidence. MDS is characterized by ineffective blood cell production involving one or more of the red cell, white cell or platelet lineages and with MDS patients having a variable risk of progression to leukemia. There remains a need for effective, well tolerated therapies for MDS having novel mechanisms of action. TELINTRA has a novel mechanism of action that inhibits a target enzyme called glutathione S- transferase P1-1 which in turn facilitates the activation of JNK kinase, a key regulator of cellular growth and differentiation of blood. TELINTRA has been shown to stimulate normal multilineage differentiation of blood stem cell precursors and induce cancer cell death in human leukemia cell lines. Additional information on TELINTRA is available at www.telik.com.
