NeoPharm Provides Update on LE-SN38 Program

WAUKEGAN, Ill.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Mar 30, 2007 - NEOPHARM, Inc. (Nasdaq: NEOL) today reported findings from a Phase 2 clinical trial in second-line metastatic colorectal cancer patients with its drug product candidate LE-SN38, the active metabolite of irinotecan (Camptosar(R)). While the interim analysis of data following the completion of treatment of the first 21 patients demonstrated disease stabilization, the study did not achieve the primary tumor response endpoint. No new patient accrual will be made into this study conducted by the Cancer and Leukemia Group B (CALGB), a national clinical research group sponsored by the National Cancer Institute (NCI). Patients currently receiving therapy will continue treatment per protocol until a study endpoint is reached. NeoPharm will be reassessing project next steps including additional data analyses and the possibility of other studies.
