SAN RAFAEL, Calif., July 25, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- BioMarin Pharmaceutical Inc. (Nasdaq:BMRN) today provided an update on its ongoing Phase 1/2 study for its poly ADP-ribose polymerase (PARP) inhibitor BMN 673 for the treatment of solid tumors. As of July 24, the RECIST response rate from the ongoing trial is nine out of 18 breast cancer patients, or 50 percent, including one confirmed complete response. This response rate includes three additional confirmed responses since the last update at the ASCO Annual Meeting, and two new patients are yet to be confirmed. Four patients are ongoing with stable disease with potential for additional responses. The study is still ongoing, and the company will provide additional updates later this year, including data in ovarian cancer, Ewing's sarcoma and small cell lung cancer.
