CytRx has announced the preliminary results from its Phase II trial of bafetinib, used to treat patients with relapsed or refractory B-cell chronic lymphocytic leukaemia.

Sixteen patients were enrolled on the trial, who demonstrated greater-than or equal to 50% elevation in their lymphocyte counts, greater than 50% shrinkage in their lymph nodes. Lymph node softening was also noted.

The drug-related adverse effects sobserved were elevated liver enzymes with normal bilirubin, fatigue and gastrointestinal symptoms.

CytRx president and CEO Steven Kriegsman said that due to the low incidence of adverse events, the dose of bafetinib can be increased, thus increasing the potential for greater efficacy.
