About Talvesta(tm) (talotrexin) for Injection

Talvesta(tm) is a novel nonpolyglutamable antifolate drug under development for the treatment of various types of cancers. Talvesta has demonstrated enhanced antitumor activity in a broad spectrum of preclinical studies by targeting the enzyme DHFR to prevent DNA synthesis in tumor cells and inhibit tumor growth. These studies suggest that Talvesta, as compared to methotrexate, enters into cells up to ten times more efficiently and demonstrates 10- to 100-fold more potency in overcoming polyglutamation, a well-established mechanism of antifolate resistance. Talvesta also binds more tightly to its anti-tumor target DHFR, which Hana believes may further inhibit tumor growth. In May 2006, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration granted orphan drug designation for Talvesta in patients with ALL.
