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-701, and SL-801. A potentially pivotal Phase 2 trial with SL-401, a targeted therapy directed to the interleukin-3 receptor (IL-3R; CD123) present on a wide range of hematologic cancers, 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). Patients are being followed for response duration and outcomes, and new patients continue to enroll into the study. In addition, ongoing Phase 1/2 trials with SL-401 are currently enrolling patients with additional malignancies including acute myeloid leukemia (AML) in remission with high risk for relapse and myeloproliferative neoplasms (MPN) of unmet medical need. A Phase 2 trial 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 enrolling patients in a Phase 1 clinical trial in advanced solid tumors.
