SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO, Calif., July 27, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Sunesis Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (Nasdaq:SNSS) today reported financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2017. Loss from operations for the three months ended June 30, 2017 was $8.6 million. As of June 30, 2017, cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities totaled $22.7 million.

“We have made tangible progress under our revised operating plan to focus primarily on our non-covalent BTK inhibitor, SNS-062. With the first patient being dosed, the recent initiation of our Phase 1b/2 study in patients with relapsed chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) and other B-cell malignancies marks an important milestone for the company,” said Daniel Swisher, Chief Executive Officer of Sunesis. “SNS-062 is designed to overcome the leading resistance pathway to ibrutinib, the predominant standard of care for the treatment of CLL. As a reversible, non-covalent BTK inhibitor, SNS-062 has the potential to establish proof of concept through the treatment and evaluation of resistant B-cell malignancy patients from this ongoing Phase 1b/2 study.”
