GenSpera Announces First Patient Treated in G-202 Phase II Hepatocellular Carcinoma Tria


2/21/2013 9:23:22 AM

SAN ANTONIO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--GenSpera, Inc. (OTCBB:GNSZ) announced that the first patient has been treated in the Phase II clinical trial of its lead compound, G-202, in patients who have hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). “We have now enrolled a patient with advanced HCC who has not been helped by standard-of-care therapy with sorafenib,” said Devalingam Mahalingam, M.D., Ph.D., an oncologist at the Cancer Therapy & Research Center at The University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio. “Often, these patients have limited therapeutic options and survival rates are very modest in this setting. It is reassuring to know that G-202 provides another therapeutic possibility for our advanced HCC patients in this Phase II clinical study, which follows the safety and therapeutic efficacy we observed in the Phase I clinical study. We look forward to enrolling more patients in this study and reporting data later this year.”
