About Stemline Therapeutics
Stemline Therapeutics, Inc. is a clinical stage biopharmaceutical company developing novel oncology therapeutics. Stemline is developing three clinical stage product candidates, SL-401, SL-801, and SL-701. A pivotal trial with SL-401, a targeted therapy directed to the interleukin-3 receptor (IL-3R) present on tumor bulk and cancer stem cells (CSCs) of a wide range of hematologic cancers, is underway and currently enrolling patients with blastic plasmacytoid dendritic cell neoplasm (BPDCN). Data from the lead-in and initial expansion stage of this ongoing pivotal trial demonstrated that multiple consecutive cycles of SL-401 were tolerable and produced high overall response rates in BPDCN patients. Patients continue to be followed for overall response, progression free survival (PFS) and overall survival (OS), and new patients continue to accrue into the study. Clinical studies with SL-401 are also open in additional malignancies including acute myeloid leukemia (AML) in complete remission 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 open and accruing adult patients with second-line glioblastoma multiforme (GBM). SL-801, a novel oral small molecule reversible inhibitor of XPO1, has an open IND and is being advanced into clinical trials across multiple cancer types.
