AS1413 (amonafide L-malate, formerly Xanafide®)

AS1413 is a DNA intercalator that induces apoptotic signalling by blocking TopoII binding to DNA. Unlike classical TopoII inhibitors, a distinctive feature of AS1413 is its ability to evade PgP and related transporters responsible for multi-drug resistance. AS1413 is currently in phase III development in secondary AML.

Secondary AML (acute myeloid leukaemia)

AML is divided into two major categories, de-novo and secondary. AML is classified as secondary AML if it occurs as a result of a prior haematological disease or treatment with chemotherapy or radiation therapy or a combination of the two causes. In a phase II trial, treatment with AS1413 plus cytarabine resulted in a complete response rate of 38.6%, with an additional 3.4% showing CRi (complete response without recovery of blood cell count). This compares with CR rates of around 25% seen with standard treatment in similar AML patients enrolled in two large American studies. AS1413 is now in a phase III registration trial called ACCEDE. The ACCEDE trial compares AS1413 plus cytarabine with daunorubicin plus cytarabine in 450 patients

AS1411 has shown activity against a wide range of solid and blood cancer cell lines in preclinical experiments and could therefore have potential against a variety of human cancers. Clinical development is focused on acute myeloid leukaemia (AML).

AS1411 is an aptamer. This is a type of drug based on a short piece of DNA or RNA. However, unlike some other drugs based on these chemicals, aptamers work as conventional drugs, binding to a protein target by virtue of a fit with its three-dimensional structure. The term aptamer is derived from the Greek ‘aptos’ (to fit).

AS1411 has a structure that allows it to bind specifically to a protein called nucleolin, which is found on the surface of many cancer cells. Once bound, the AS1411 aptamer is taken into the cancer cell, where it causes death by apoptosis (programmed cell death).

A previous phase I trial of AS1411 in 30 patients with various advanced cancers reported no serious adverse events related to treatment and promising signs of anti-cancer activity were seen.

ATTRACT-1 phase III trial of ASA404 halted following interim analysis


29 March 2010, London, UK, and Cambridge, MA:

Antisoma plc (LSE: ASM; USOTC: ATSMY) announces that the planned interim analysis of data from the ATTRACT-1 phase III trial of ASA404 in previously untreated non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) has shown that continuation of the trial would be futile, as there is little or no prospect of demonstrating a survival benefit with ASA404 in this setting. The ATTRACT-1 trial will therefore be halted.

 Partnering opportunities

Antisoma is looking for worldwide partners for the following products:

AS1413 A novel DNA intercalator in phase III for secondary AML

AS1411 A novel DNA aptamer in phase IIb for relapsed/refractory AML

AS1402 A humanised monoclonal antibody (huHMFG1) which targets the glycoprotein, MUC1, that is overexpressed and aberrantly glycosylated in the majority of epithelial tumors. Phase II data are available

AS1409 A fusion protein combining the anti-tumour cytokine IL-12, with the tumour-targeting antibody BC1. A phase I trial with AS1409 in patients with malignant melanoma and renal cell carcinoma has been completed
