About Stemline Therapeutics
Stemline Therapeutics, Inc. is a clinical stage biopharmaceutical company developing novel oncology therapeutics. Stemline is advancing three product candidates through clinical trials: SL-401, SL-701, and SL-801. A potentially pivotal Phase 2 trial with SL-401 is currently enrolling patients with blastic plasmacytoid dendritic cell neoplasm (BPDCN). Data from the initial stage of this ongoing trial demonstrated high overall response rates (ORR), with multiple complete responses (CRs) and patients bridged to transplant. Patients continue to be followed for overall response, progression free survival (PFS) and overall survival (OS), and new patients continue to enroll into the study. Clinical studies with SL-401 are also enrolling patients with additional malignancies including acute myeloid leukemia (AML) in CR with minimal residual disease (MRD) and high-risk myeloproliferative neoplasms (MPN). A clinical study with SL-701, an immunotherapy designed to activate the immune system to attack tumors, is currently enrolling adult patients with second-line glioblastoma multiforme (GBM). SL-801, a novel oral small molecule reversible inhibitor of XPO1, is currently in a Phase 1 trial of patients with advanced solid cancers.
