Safety and tolerability of orally administered ENMD-2076 in refractory cancer patients will be assessed in this Phase 1 study. A secondary objective for the study will be to determine a dose-dependent response to treatment with ENMD-2076 through the evaluation of pharmacokinetic parameters.

ENMD-2076 is a novel, selective kinase inhibitor with potent activity against Aurora A and tyrosine kinases linked to the promotion of cancer and inflammatory diseases. ENMD-2076 acts through multiple pathways, resulting in both antiproliferative activity and the inhibition of angiogenesis. ENMD-2076 has demonstrated substantial, dose-dependent efficacy as a single agent in multiple preclinical models, including tumor regression in breast, colon, and leukemia models. Importantly, ENMD-2076 is an oral agent that has shown an acceptable toxicity profile in preclinical studies without cardiovascular toxicity.

Carolyn F. Sidor, MD, MBA, EntreMed Vice President and Chief Medical Officer commented on the study, "Both clinical trial sites are now enrolling and treating patients with our selective kinase inhibitor. We believe that this product candidate has substantial potential as both a single agent and in
