About CytRx Corporation
CytRx Corporation is a biopharmaceutical research and development company
specializing in oncology. CytRx currently 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
completed a global Phase 2b clinical trial with aldoxorubicin as a first-line
therapy for soft tissue sarcomas, a Phase 1b/2 clinical trial primarily in the
same indication, a Phase 1b study of aldoxorubicin in combination with
doxorubicin in patients with advanced solid tumors and a Phase 1b
pharmacokinetics clinical trial in patients with metastatic solid tumors.
CytRx recently initiated, under a special protocol assessment, a pivotal Phase
3 global trial with aldoxorubicin as a therapy for patients with soft tissue
sarcomas whose tumors have progressed following treatment with chemotherapy.
The Company also recently announced that it has received approval from the FDA
to continue dosing patients with aldoxorubicin until disease progression in
that clinical trial. CytRx has initiated a Phase 2 clinical trial with
aldoxorubicin in patients with late-stage glioblastoma (brain cancer), and a
Phase 2 clinical trial in HIV-related Kaposi’s sarcoma. CytRx plans to expand
its pipeline of oncology candidates based on a linker platform technology that
can be utilized with multiple chemotherapeutic agents and may allow for
greater concentration of drug at tumor sites. CytRx also has rights to two
additional drug candidates, tamibarotene and bafetinib. CytRx 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. For more information about CytRx
