GTx, Inc. (GTXI) Release: Enobosarm Phase 2 Trial for Muscle Wasting and Physical Function in Patients With Cancer Published in The Lancet Oncology


3/14/2013 9:55:07 AM

MEMPHIS, Tenn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--GTx, Inc. (Nasdaq: GTXI) today announced that the journal, The Lancet Oncology, has published online ahead of its April print edition (www.thelancet.com/journals/lanonc/onlinefirst) the results from GTx’s randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled Phase 2 clinical trial of enobosarm to assess its effects on muscle wasting and physical function in patients with cancer. Enobosarm (GTx-024) is a selective androgen receptor modulator (SARM), a new class of non-steroidal, tissue-specific anabolic agents that has the potential to increase muscle mass and improve physical function without the unwanted side effects on the prostate, skin or hair that are commonly associated with testosterone or non-selective, synthetic anabolic steroids. The lead author was Dr. Adrian S. Dobs, Professor of Medicine at the Division of Endocrinology and Metabolism, Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine in Baltimore, Maryland.
