Nerviano Medical Sciences announces that results from a single-arm Phase II study of Milciclib in patients with thymic carcinoma and thymoma were disclosed in a poster discussion session at the XVI Congresso Nazionale AIOM, October 24-26, 2014, Rome, Italy.
This clinical trial represents collaborative work of Nerviano Medical Sciences with leading cancer research institutions: Istitute Gustave Roussy, Villejuif, France; Fondazione IRCSS Istituto Nazionale Tumori, Milano, Italy; National Cancer Institute, Bethesda, US; Azienda Ospedaliero-Universitaria S. Luigi Gonzaga, Orbassano, Torino, Italy; Centre hospitalier universitaire de Toulouse, Toulose, France; Cancer Treatment Centers of America, US and Georgetown University, Washington, US.
Milciclib is an inhibitor of cyclin-dependent and Src kinase family members, as well as of a limited number of additional kinases, and it was discovered by Nerviano Medical Sciences.
Thymic carcinoma (TC) and thymoma (B3 type, B3T) are rare malignant tumors of the thymus with a high unmet medical need.
Milciclib showed promising preliminary activity in TC/B3T and a well tolerated safety profile. The data so far collected support its full investigation as potential new therapeutic agent to treat TC/B3T.
