07:02 EDTBLRXBioLineRx receives approval to commence Phase 1 trial
BioLineRx has received approval from the Israeli Ministry of Health to commence a Phase 1 trial for BL-8040, a novel treatment for the mobilization of stem cells from the bone marrow to the peripheral blood circulation. The study is expected to commence during the third quarter of 2014 at Hadassah Medical Center in Jerusalem. The Phase 1 study consists of two parts. Part 1 is a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled dose escalation study exploring the safety and tolerability of escalating repeated doses of BL-8040 in healthy volunteers. Secondary objectives include assessment of the efficacy of BL-8040 in mobilizing stem cells as a stand-alone therapy, as well as determining the pharmacokinetic profile of the drug. This part will be performed in up to 4 cohorts, with 8 healthy volunteers in each cohort. Part 1 of the study will serve to select the optimal safe and efficacious dose of BL-8040 to be used as a stand-alone therapy in Part 2 of the study. Part 2 is an open-label study designed to assess BL-8040ís stem cell mobilization capacity, as well as the yield of cells collected by apheresis. Secondary endpoints of the study include evaluation of the viability and biological activity of cells mobilized by BL-8040 and collected by apheresis. This part will be performed in a single cohort of 8 healthy volunteers who will receive the selected dose regimen of BL-8040 based on the data from Part 1.

07:02 EDTBLRXBioLineRx says safety, efficacy endpoints met in BL-8040 Phase 1 trial
BioLineRx announced successful top-line results from the Phase 1 safety and efficacy study of its lead clinical candidate, BL-8040, as a novel approach for mobilization and collection of bone-marrow stem cells from the peripheral blood circulation. All safety and efficacy endpoints were met, showing that treatment with BL-8040 as a single agent was safe and well tolerated at all doses and resulted in efficient stem cell mobilization and collection in all study participants. Importantly, the results support BL-8040 as one-day, single-dose collection regimen, which is a significant improvement upon the current standard of care. Robust stem cell mobilization was evident in all treated participants, across the different doses tested, supporting a novel approach to stem cell collection. After a single administration, BL-8040 enabled collection of a yield of stem cells that exceeds the number required to support a transplant in all treated participants, following only one collection procedure. The Company intends to present the full set of study results at the European Hematology Association Conference taking place in Vienna in June. The Phase 1 safety and efficacy study consisted of two parts. The first part was a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, dose escalation study exploring the safety and tolerability of escalating repeated doses of BL-8040 in three cohorts of eight healthy volunteers. Based on data from the first part, an optimal safe and efficacious dose of BL-8040 was selected, which was used as a stand-alone therapy in a single cohort of eight healthy volunteers in the second open-label part of the study. This part of the study was designed to assess BL-8040ís stem cell mobilization capacity, as well as the yield of cells collected by apheresis. Secondary efficacy endpoints of the study included the pharmacodynamic and pharmacokinetic profile of the drug, as well as an evaluation of the viability and biological activity of cells mobilized by BL-8040 and collected by apheresis.
