Keryx Biopharmaceuticals, Inc. Announces Positive Phase I and Phase,II Data on KRX-0401 in Patients with Relapsed/Refractory Multiple,Myeloma and Waldenstrom's Macroglobulinemia

rifosine plus bortezomib, there were 2 PR's and 1 MR. Two additional MR's were observed on this combination after dexamethasone was added; both of these patients were previously refractory to the combination of bortezomib + dexamethasone without perifosine. Eleven patients remain on study and the phase II portion of the study is now open and enrolling.

A second poster presented by Dr. Richardson, entitled " Perifosine (KRX- 0401) + Low Dose Dexamethasone is Active in Patients with Relapsed and Refractory Multiple Myeloma (MM): Perifosine MM Investigator Group Phase II Multicenter Study Update" demonstrated that 78% of patients treated with perifosine plus low dose dexamethasone had at least stable disease (SD), including 26% that had a PR or MR. Patients continue on study now ranging from 6 months up through 1 year.

Dr. Andrzej Jakubowiak, Director of the myeloma program at the University of Michigan Cancer Center, presented a poster entitled "A Multicenter Phase I Trial of Perifosine (KRX-0401) in Combination with Lenalidomide and Dexamethasone in Patients with Relapsed or Refractory Multiple Myeloma: Preliminary Results. Multiple Myeloma Research Consortium (MMRC) Trial", demonstrating early encouraging results, with 50% of patients achieving a partial response or better.

Commenting on the data, Dr. Richardson stated, "Perifosine's potential in combination with bortezomib, dexamethasone and other novel therapies to overcome drug-resistant multiple myeloma is promising. Our team of investigators, including top centers across the country and now incorporating the considerable resources of the MMRC for one of the trials, is committed to completing enrollment in our studies and evaluating future clinical strategies to improve patient outcome."
