Maret Pharmaceuticals presents promising Phase I/II clinical MARstem™ results at international symposium on new drugs in cancer therapy

Late-breaking presentation shows multilineage blood cell growth with excellent safety in chemotherapy patients

Maret Pharmaceuticals, Inc. today reported positive Phase I/II clinical results that demonstrate the potential of MARstem™ as a multilineage hematopoietic therapy (multiple blood cell stimulant) to treat or prevent pancytopenia (a reduction in different types of blood cells) following chemotherapy in breast cancer patients. The study was selected as a late breaking abstract at the 11th National Cancer Institute - European Organization for Research and Treatment of Cancer - American Association for Cancer Research (NCI-EORTC-AACR) Symposium on New Drugs in Cancer Therapy.

The study was designed to evaluate safety, optimal dose and proof-of-principle efficacy of MARstem in adjuvant breast cancer patients. The results show that MARstem reduced the frequency of grade 2-4 thrombocytopenia (decrease in the number of blood platelets), grade 2-4 anemia (deficiency in red blood cells), and grade 3-4 lymphopenia (reduction in the number of lymphocytes) as compared to controls.

"These early clinical results suggest that MARstem may effective in improving or reducing the debilitating side effects of cancer treatment," said Terry Winters, Ph.D., Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Maret Pharmaceuticals. MARstem has a clear therapeutic benefit as a multilineage hematopoietic factor as compared to traditional hematopoietic stimulants, which selectively increase only a single blood cell line. The trials outcome is promising, as the safety of MARstem has been established and the preliminary efficacy results are encouraging.

The studys results suggest that MARstem exhibits an excellent safety profile. There were no dose-limiting toxicities in the patients treated with MARstem. Specifically, there were no adverse cardiovascular or hematologic effects. The overall occurrence of side effects was lower in MARstem pa
