Synta Pharmaceuticals Corp. Research Report  

On January 9, 2014, Synta Pharmaceuticals Corp. (Synta) announced the initiation of three multicenter, randomized Phase II/III Trials, evaluating ganetespib in combination with chemotherapy in first-line treatment of patients with AML and high risk MDS. According to the Company, preclinical results from Synta and its collaborators, Alan K. Burnett of Cardiff University and Sanjay Bansal of the UT Health Science Center at San Antonio, have shown that ganetespib inhibits a number of cancer-promoting factors believed to contribute to the proliferation of leukemic cells and renders them more vulnerable to treatment with chemotherapy. "The selection of ganetespib for three major potentially registration-enabling trials in AML is an exciting validation of the clinical potential of ganetespib, and reinforces our strategy of continuing to expand the depth and breadth of the ganetespib program through collaborations with strong groups of investigators," said Safi R. Bahcall, Ph.D., President and CEO of Synta. "Promising preclinical and early clinical results have been observed with ganetespib and other Hsp90 inhibitors in AML. We are pleased by the decision of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Research Fund, the Cancer Research UK, and the trial investigators to invest in moving ganetespib forward into three large, randomized trials, which we hope will ultimately lead to new options for patients with this devastating disease."
