Rexahn Gets European Patent For Cancer Drug Archexin

Rexahn Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (RNN) said Thursday that the European Patent Office has granted the company a patent, EP 1546180, for its clinical development candidate Archexin and its use for inhibiting the activated form of Akt-1 for the treatment of cancer.

Having successfully completed a Phase IIa clinical trial of Archexin in metastatic pancreatic cancer, Rexahn has conducted an extensive scientific, clinical and business analysis of other potential indications for additional Phase IIa clinical trials with the drug.

Rexahn is now working with key clinical opinion leaders to finalize the design of a Phase IIa clinical trial in a selected tumor type and plans on updating investors on the tumor type selection and Phase IIa trial timeline in the fourth quarter of 2013.
