SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO, Calif., April 30, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- OXiGENE, Inc. (Nasdaq:OXGN), a clinical-stage, biopharmaceutical company developing novel therapeutics to treat cancer, announced today that data were presented from a pre-specified subgroup analysis of the FACT trial, a randomized, controlled Phase 2/3 study of ZYBRESTAT® (fosbretabulin tromethamine, CA4P) in patients with anaplastic thyroid cancer (ATC), at the 2012 Annual Meeting of the American Association of Endocrine Surgeons (AAES).

The results showed that improvements were observed in median survival and one-year survival for patients with prior thyroidectomy followed by fosbretabulin and chemotherapy.
