About Stemline Therapeutics
Stemline Therapeutics, Inc. is a biopharmaceutical company focused on the development and potential commercialization of novel oncology therapeutics. Stemline is developing three clinical stage product candidates, ELZONRISTM (tagraxofusp; SL-401), SL-801, and SL-701. ELZONRIS is a targeted therapy directed to the interleukin-3 receptor (CD123) present on a range of malignancies. ELZONRIS has successfully completed a pivotal trial in blastic plasmacytoid dendritic cell neoplasm (BPDCN), for which it was granted breakthrough therapy designation (BTD). A Biologics License Application (BLA) has been accepted for filing and granted Priority Review by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The European Medicines Agency (EMA) has granted ELZONRIS accelerated assessment for the upcoming marketing authorization application (MAA) submission, which is expected in the first quarter of 2019. ELZONRIS is also being evaluated in clinical trials in additional indications including chronic myelomonocytic leukemia (CMML), myelofibrosis (MF), and others. SL-801 is a novel oral small molecule reversible inhibitor of XPO1 that is currently in a Phase 1 trial of patients with advanced solid tumors; dose escalation is ongoing. SL-701, an immunotherapeutic, has completed a Phase 2 trial in patients with second-line glioblastoma; data and next steps for the program are being evaluated.
