LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--CytRx Corporation (Nasdaq: CYTR), a biopharmaceutical research and development company specializing in oncology, today announced updated results from its ongoing multicenter, randomized, open-label global Phase 2b clinical trial investigating the efficacy and safety of aldoxorubicin compared with doxorubicin as first-line therapy in subjects with metastatic, locally advanced or unresectable soft tissue sarcomas (STS). The updated trial results demonstrated that aldoxorubicin significantly increases progression-free survival (PFS), PFS at 6 months, overall response rate (ORR) and tumor shrinkage, compared to doxorubicin, the current standard-of-care, as a first-line treatment in patients with STS. The data trended in favor of aldoxorubicin for all of the major subtypes of soft tissue sarcomas. The results will be presented by Sant P. Chawla, M.D., F.R.A.C.P., Director of the Sarcoma Oncology Center, and principal investigator of the trial, in an oral presentation at the 2014 American Society for Clinical Oncology (ASCO) Annual Meeting, which is taking place May 30–June 3 in Chicago.
