NEW YORK, May 8, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- TG Therapeutics, Inc. (Nasdaq:TGTX), an innovative, clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company, today announced that a micronized (reduced particle size) formulation for the Company's novel, once-daily PI3K-delta inhibitor, TGR-1202, has demonstrated improved pharmacokinetics with approximately double the TGR-1202 exposure (AUC) in a healthy subject bioequivalence study. A second food-effect study in healthy subjects which evaluated the relative oral bioavailability and pharmacokinetics of TGR-1202 in a fed and fasted-state also demonstrated an approximate doubling in absorption with fed-state dosing. Together, the Company believes that these modifications may result in an approximately 3-4 fold increase in exposure over that seen in the ongoing Phase 1 study. Results from these studies will be included in a presentation of updated data from the ongoing Phase 1 study of TGR-1202 in patients with relapsed and refractory hematologic malignancies at the American Society of Clinical Oncology Meeting (ASCO) later this month.
