On March 3, 2014, Cell Therapeutics, Inc. (CTI) announced the initiation of a Phase 3 clinical trial, PERSIST-2, evaluating pacritinib. Pacritinib is a novel investigational JAK2/FLT3 inhibitor, in patients with myelofibrosis whose platelet counts are less than or equal to 100,000 per microliter (uL). "With the initiation of the PERSIST-2 trial, we believe that the registration program for pacritinib is on track for a potential NDA submission in the latter part of 2015," said James A. Bianco, MD, President and CEO of CTI. "We have seen meaningful clinical benefits and good tolerability with pacritinib in myelofibrosis patients in Phase 2 trials without apparent drug-related thrombocytopenia or anemia. As such, we have had strong interest in site participation for this trial and will work diligently to activate these sites over the next several months." The trial is expected to enroll up to 300 patients in North America, Europe, Australia and New Zealand within 12 to 14 months.
