Phase I Clinical Trials of Cancer Drug ETS2101 Approved by Regulators
News Mar 29, 2012
e-Therapeutics plc has announced that regulatory agencies in the UK and the US have approved plans for phase I trials of the Company’s anti-cancer drug ETS2101 and that enrolment of patients into trials in these two countries will begin shortly.
A phase I trial in the UK will recruit patients with a variety of solid tumours, while a US investigator-led trial will enrol patients with primary or secondary brain cancers.
Further details of each trial will be provided when its first patient is treated.
Professor Malcolm Young, CEO of e-Therapeutics, said: “We remain on track to report the first data from cancer trials with ETS2101 and to advance three further drugs into the clinic by the end of this year.”
e-Therapeutics’ latest expectations for its other products are that ETX1153c (for C. difficile infection) will start phase I in Q2 or Q3, that ETS6103 (for major depressive disorder) will enter phase IIb in Q3 and that ETX1153a (for MRSA infection) will start phase I in Q4.
