(Array BioPharma) announced updated clinical safety and efficacy data on ARRY-614 in patients with myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS) at the 2013 Annual Meeting of the American Society of Hematology. Guillermo Garcia-Manero, M.D., Professor, Department of Leukemia, Division of Cancer Medicine, The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, stated, "The emerging results from this study with ARRY-614 are very promising. ARRY-614 was generally well tolerated in these lower-risk MDS patients and I am particularly encouraged with the platelet effects observed in patients with thrombocytopenia, including platelet transfusion independence. Responses were seen in patients for whom hypomethylating agents had failed, a group with no available treatment options." Michael Needle, M.D., Chief Medical Officer, Array BioPharma, also added, "Significant unmet needs remain in the treatment of MDS. ARRY-614 is thought to operate at the progenitor cell level, distinct from currently available therapies, offering a unique mechanism of action for treatment of the cytopenias associated with MDS."
