About Stemline Therapeutics
Stemline Therapeutics, Inc. is a clinical stage biopharmaceutical company developing novel therapeutics that target both cancer stem cells (CSCs) and tumor bulk. Stemline is currently developing two clinical stage product candidates, SL-401 and SL-701, and a pipeline of preclinical candidates including SL-801 and SL-501. SL-401 is a targeted therapy directed to the interleukin-3 receptor (IL-3R) present on CSCs and tumor bulk of a wide range of hematologic cancers. Three multicenter clinical trials with SL-401 are currently open in the following indications: 1) blastic plasmacytoid dendritic cell neoplasm (BPDCN) and relapsed/refractory acute myeloid leukemia (AML), the expansion stage of which may serve as a registration trial for BPDCN; 2) AML patients in first complete remission (CR) with minimal residual disease (MRD); and 3) four types of advanced high-risk myeloproliferative neoplasms (MPN), including systemic mastocytosis, advanced symptomatic hypereosinophilic disorder, myelofibrosis, and chronic myelomonocytic leukemia. Additional SL-401 studies are currently planned in other indications including myeloma and certain other lymphomas and leukemias. SL-701 is an enhanced immunotherapy designed to activate the immune system to attack tumors. A multicenter clinical trial with SL-701 is currently open in adult patients with glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) in first recurrence. Preclinical candidates being advanced toward investigational new drug (IND) filings include SL-801, a novel, oral small molecule reversible inhibitor of XPO1, being developed for solid and hematologic cancers, and SL-501, a next generation IL-3R targeted therapy, being developed for oncologic and certain autoimmune indications.
