Maxim Phase II Clinical Trial Highlights Substantial Increase In Leukemia-FreeSurvival For Acute Myelogenous Leukemia Patients

diseases and cancer, the capacity of the patient's immune system to detect and destroy diseased cells is compromised. Maxamine Therapy combines the administration of Maxamine, which protects critical immune cells, with the administration of cytokines such as interferons or IL-2, which stimulate these immune cells.

Maxim scientists have shown that the suppressive effect of the phagocytes, a class of white blood cells, is an important mechanism that prevents the immune system from effectively fighting cancer. Phagocytes release free-radicals that induce T-cells and NK-cells, immune cells that are critical in the fight against cancer and infectious diseases, into programmed cell death or apoptosis. Cytokines, such as IL-2 and interferon-a and vaccines are potent stimulators of T-cells and NK-cells, yet they are often rendered ineffective as therapeutics due to phagocyte-derived free-radical induction of programmed cell death of the critical immune cells. Maxamine has been shown to clearly and effectively prevent the production and release of phagocyte-derived free radicals, thereby protecting T-cells and NK-cells and enhancing the immune stimulating capabilities of certain cytokines and other immunotherapies.

Complementing the AML results described above, Phase II clinical studies of Maxamine Therapy in advanced malignant melanoma have shown a more than doubling in survival outcomes and the maintenance of patient quality of life during treatment. Earlier-stage clinical studies have also suggested promise in renal cell carcinoma and hepatitis. "The growing body of human data in several cancers and viral infections is leading Maxim into a clinical development program that focuses Maxamine as an immuno-modulator that may be used broadly to improve cytokine therapy, cancer vaccines and other stimulators of the immune system," stated Larry Stambaugh, chairman and chief executive officer of Maxim.
