LEXINGTON, Mass., June 30, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Xenetic Biosciences, Inc. (OTCBB:XBIO), a biopharmaceutical company focused on developing next-generation biologic drugs and novel oncology therapeutics, today announced results from its ongoing data analysis of the first cohort of its Phase 2, sequential multiple dose study evaluating the safety and efficacy of ErepoXen®, subcutaneously administered polysialylated erythropoietin (PSA-EPO), for the treatment of anemia in Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) patients who are neither on dialysis nor receiving erythropoiesis stimulating agents. ErepoXen® was found safe and well tolerated to date, with no serious adverse events. This is the first data on repeat dosing of PSA-EPO in human subjects demonstrating its tolerability and safety in Western clinical trials. On this basis, the Safety Review Committee authorized a dose increase for the second cohort of the study, which is currently underway and demonstrating early signs of clinical efficacy. The Safety Review Committee intends to meet again in August 2014, and the Company expects additional results to be available in the third quarter of 2014.
