Cerulean 2011 Highlights

December 23, 2011

2011 has been an exciting year for Cerulean.  There have been great achievements in our clinical and preclinical programs.  We are making strides toward improving clinical outcome with our unique approach - advancing nanopharmaceuticals as a new class of tumor-targeted therapy.   

Company Highlights:

  • Phase 1/2a data on CRLX101 have laid a solid foundation for establishing the safety and efficacy of this novel tumor-targeted agent
  • Rapid enrollment is ongoing for a 150-patient randomized Phase 2 study of CRLX101 for the treatment of advanced non-small cell lung cancer, as well as for several Phase 1-2 studies in other solid tumor types
  • Our siRNA-containing nanopharmaceuticals have demonstrated robust, durable, tumor-specific silencing, with a favorable therapeutic index, illustrating the potential of our PNP platform accelerating the development of RNAi-based therapeutics
  • Our siRNA program data will be presented at the upcoming Keystone Nucleic Acid Therapeutics conference and RNAi World Congress
  • Pre-IND candidate CRLX301, designed to be the best-in-class taxane, has entered into IND-enabling studies
