Rexahn Pharmaceuticals Inc. (NYSE MKT: RNN) is a clinical stage biopharmaceutical company focused on developing best-in-class therapeutics for the treatment of cancer. Rexahn’s clinical development programs directly target specific proteins that are selectively expressed in human cancer cells, resulting in increased efficacy and reduced toxicity. In preclinical studies these drug candidates are effective against multiple drug resistant cancers and have shown to increase the effectiveness of various FDA approved cancer treatments. Rexahn is also developing specific biomarker tests that will help identify which patients will be most responsive to its treatments. The Company’s nanotechnology-based drug delivery system has shown it can make FDA approved chemotherapy drugs more effective.

Our clinical development pipeline consists of three novel compounds:

RX-3117 is a novel, oral, small molecule nucleoside compound.  Once intracellularly activated (phosphorylated) by the enzyme UCK2, it is incorporated into the DNA or RNA of cells and inhibits both DNA and RNA synthesis, which induces apoptotic cell death of tumor cells.  Because UCK2 is overexpressed in multiple human tumors, but has a very limited presence in normal tissues, RX-3117 offers the potential for a targeted anti-cancer therapy with an improved efficacy and safety profile, and we believe it has therapeutic potential in a broad range of cancers, including pancreatic, bladder, colon, and lung cancer.  RX-3117 has received “orphan drug designation” from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) and from the European Commission (“EC”) for pancreatic cancer.

RX-5902 (Supinoxin™) is a potential first-in-class small molecule inhibitor of phosphorylated-p68, a protein that we believe plays a key role in cancer cell growth, progression and metastasis through its interaction with beta-catenin.  Phosphorylated p68, which is highly expressed in cancer cells, but not in normal cells, results in up-regulation of cancer-related genes and a subsequent proliferation of cancer cells and tumor growth.  RX-5902 selectively blocks the interaction of phosphorylated p68 with beta-catenin, thereby decreasing the proliferation or growth of cancer cells in preclinical models.  In addition, multiple pre-clinical models suggest that RX-5902 enhances the efficacy of immunotherapy. We have evaluated RX-5902 in a Phase 1 dose escalation study in patients with a diverse range of metastatic, treatment-refractory tumors, including breast, ovarian, colorectal, and neuro-endocrine tumors.  In February 2017, we initiated a Phase 2a clinical study of RX-5902 in patients with metastatic triple negative breast cancer (“TNBC”).

RX-0201 (Archexin®) is a potential best-in-class, potent inhibitor of the protein kinase Akt-1, which we believe plays a critical role in cancer cell proliferation, survival, angiogenesis, metastasis and drug resistance.  RX-0201 is the subject of a research and development collaboration with Zhejiang Haichang Biotechnology Co., Ltd. (“Haichang”) for the development of RX-0201 for hepatocellular carcinoma. RX-0201 has received orphan drug designation from the FDA for renal cell carcinoma (“RCC”), glioblastoma, ovarian cancer, stomach cancer and pancreatic cancer.

These clinical development programs are part of a growing oncology drug pipeline that consists of highly differentiated and exciting anti-cancer compounds.

Our strategy is to continue building a significant clinical development pipeline of innovative therapies that we will commercialize on our own or with other pharmaceutical partners. Rexahn’s powerful discovery engine and differentiated product pipeline provide the opportunity for a high value generating biopharmaceutical company.
