FDA Grants Fast Track Designation for OncoGenex Pharmaceuticals' Lead Product Candidate OGX-011
Date:8/22/2008

OGX-011 treatment can significantly reduce serum clusterin levels and that achieving low serum clusterin levels during treatment is correlated with improved survival. Furthermore, serum clusterin levels during OGX-011 treatment may be predictive of a treatment benefit with OGX-011. In patients with HRPC who had failed first-line docetaxel while on or within six months of first-line docetaxel therapy and received second-line chemotherapy in combination with OGX-011 (Study OGX-011-07), achieving or maintaining low serum clusterin levels correlated with improved survival. Similar results were seen in Study OGX-011-05 in patients with NSCLC who were treated with gemcitabine plus a platinum regimen and OGX-011. Data from the Phase 2 study in HRPC were presented at the 2008 Annual Meeting of the American Society of Clinical Oncology.
