About CytRx Corporation
The CytRx oncology pipeline is focused on the clinical development of
aldoxorubicin (formerly known as INNO-206), its improved version of the widely
used chemotherapeutic agent doxorubicin. CytRx has initiated an international
Phase 2b clinical trial as a treatment for soft tissue sarcomas, has completed
its Phase 1b/2 clinical trial primarily in the same indication, and has
initiated a Phase 1b pharmacokinetics clinical trial in patients with
metastatic solid tumors and a Phase 1b study of aldoxorubicin in combination
with doxorubicin in patients with advanced solid tumors. The Company is
initiating an international Phase 3 pivotal trial under a special protocol
assessment (SPA) with aldoxorubicin as a therapy for patients with soft tissue
sarcomas whose tumors have progressed following treatment with chemotherapy.
CytRx is expanding its pipeline of oncology candidates based on a novel linker
platform technology that can be utilized with multiple chemotherapeutic agents
and could allow for greater concentration of drug at tumor sites. The Company
also has rights to two additional drug candidates, tamibarotene and bafetinib.
The Company completed its evaluation of bafetinib in the ENABLE Phase 2
clinical trial in high-risk B-cell chronic lymphocytic leukemia (B-CLL), and
plans to seek a partner for further development of bafetinib, and is
evaluating further development of tamibarotene. For more information about
