WASHINGTON, D.C. April 9, 2013 The nanoparticle drug BIND-014 is effective against multiple solid tumors, according to results generated by the Translational Genomics Research Institute (TGen) and Scottsdale Healthcare, and presented today at the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) Annual Meeting 2013.
Data for the study was generated at the Virginia G. Piper Cancer Center Clinical Trials, a partnership of TGen and Scottsdale Healthcare.
Dr. Daniel Von Hoff, TGen Physician-In-Chief and Chief Scientific Officer of Scottsdale Healthcare's Clinical Research Institute, will present A Phase 1 Study of BIND-014, a PSMA-targeted Nanoparticle Containing Docetaxel, in Patients with Refractory Solid Tumors during an AACR session at 1 p.m. EDT today at the Washington, D.C., Convention Center, Room 146.
Dr. Von Hoff, the study's Principal Investigator, will present complete Phase 1 clinical data of BIND-014, which is produced by BIND Therapeutics, a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company developing a new class of highly selective targeted and programmable therapeutics called AccurinsTM. BIND-014 is the company's lead drug candidate.
In 28 patients with advanced or metastatic solid tumors, BIND-014 with its targeted docetaxel Accurin was shown to be generally safe and well-tolerated at the established maximum dose of 60 mg/m2. BIND-014 showed encouraging signs of anti-tumor activity, including one complete response, three partial responses and five patients with stable disease lasting at least four, 12-week-plus cycles. In addition, the pharmacokinetic (PK) profile of BIND-014 was substantially different from the published PK of conventional docetaxel.
"This Phase 1 trial has successfully established the safety and tolerability profile and maximum tolerated dose of BIND-014 in patients with advanced or metastatic solid tumor cancers," said Dr. Von Hoff, F.A.C.P., TGen's Distinguished Professor. "There is a cri
