RALEIGH, N.C. and SHANGHAI, Dec. 27, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Xynomic Pharma, a clinical stage US-China oncology drug development

company, today announced that its Trials-in-Progress poster discussing the ongoing, potentially pivotal, phase 3 trial of abexinostat plus pazopanib as first- or second-line therapy in patients with locally advanced or metastatic renal cell carcinoma
(RCC) will be presented by Dr. Rahul Aggarwal of University of California San Francisco, a lead investigator, at the ASCO-Genitourinary Cancers Symposium on February 16, 2019 in San Francisco, California, USA.   

Xynomic Pharma has also filed 3 China Investigational New Drug (IND) applications with China National Medical Products Administration (NMPA) to test abexinostat, Xynomic's lead drug candidate and a China Category 1 drug, against RCC and lymphoma. All 3 clinical trials are potentially pivotal and will test (1) abexinostat in combination with pazopanib as a first- or second-line therapy against RCC, (2) abexinostat as a third-line mono therapy against diffuse large B-cell lymphoma, the most common aggressive non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL) subtype according to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS), and (3) abexinostat as a third-line mono therapy against follicular lymphoma, the most common indolent NHL subtype according to LLS. The first clinical trial will also be a part of an on-going multinational, multi-center trial. Furthermore, Xynomic Pharma has filed an IND with the NMPA for a fourth trial, not intended for registration purpose in China, to test abexinostat as a fourth-line mono therapy against follicular lymphoma. This fourth trial will be a part of an on-going multinational, multi-center trial.
