AEterna Zentaris To Present First In Vitro Data for PI3K Inhibitors,and In Vivo Results for a GHRH Antagonist at the AACR Annual,Meeting in Los Angeles

QUEBEC CITY, April 13, 2007 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ - AEterna Zentaris Inc. , a global, pure play biopharmaceutical company focused on endocrine therapy and oncology, today announced that it will present two abstracts outlining first in vitro data on its PI3K inhibitors as well as in vivo data on its GHRH antagonist, JMR-132, which both may potentially provide new therapeutic approaches for the treatment of cancer. These abstracts will be presented at the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) Annual Meeting, to be held April 14-18 at the Los Angeles Convention Center in Los Angeles, California.

    Selected abstracts for poster sessions in the Exhibit Hall:


    Monday, April 16, 8:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. (PT)

        - Abstract #2379 "New Generation of Anilino-Substituted

          Pyridopyrazine-Urea Derivatives Show Highly Selective PI3K-

          Inhibition". Irene Seipelt, Eckhard Claus, Tilman Schuster,

          Emmanuel Polymeropoulos, Michael Teifel, Eckhard Gunther.

          The abstract reviews, for the first time, results of a preclinical

          development program on a new generation of pyridopyrazine

          derivatives which clearly indicate that these drug candidates

          selectively inhibit PI3K and could be valuable for the treatment of

          cancer.


    Tuesday, April 17, 8:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. (PT)

        - Abstract #3568 "GHRH-Antagonist in Combination with Docetaxel

          Chemotherapy induces regression of MX-1 human experimental breast

          cancers". Joerg B. Engel, Andrew V. Schally, Jozseph Varga, Gabor

          Halmos, Stefan Buchholz.

          The abstract reviews results which demonstrate that GHRH

          antagonist, JMR-132, inhibits doxorubicin resistant in MX-1 human

          breast cancers and induces growth arrest or total regression when

          combined with docetaxel chemotherapy. Consequently, JMR-132 could

          provide a new therapeutic approach for t
he treatment of early and

          metastatic breast cancer.
