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. SL-401 is a targeted therapy directed to the interleukin-3 receptor (CD123) present on a wide range of malignancies. SL-401 is being advanced through a pivotal Phase 2 program in patients with blastic plasmacytoid dendritic cell neoplasm (BPDCN), an indication for which SL-401 has been granted Breakthrough Therapy Designation (BTD) by the FDA. SL-401 has demonstrated high overall response rates (ORR), with multiple complete responses (CRs), in both first-line and relapsed/refractory patients, and treatment duration and frequency of bridge to transplant have been trending favorably. SL-401 is also being advanced through Phase 1/2 trials of patients with additional malignancies including acute myeloid leukemia (AML) in remission with minimal residual disease (MRD), high-risk myeloproliferative neoplasms (MPN), and relapsed/refractory multiple myeloma (in combination with pomalidomide). SL-801 is a novel oral small molecule reversible inhibitor of XPO1 that has demonstrated broad in vivo and in vitro preclinical activity in a wide array of solid and hematologic malignancies. A Phase 1 trial with SL-801 is open and enrolling patients with advanced solid tumors, and a Phase 1 trial in hematologic malignancies is planned. SL-701 is an immunotherapy designed to activate the immune system to attack tumors. A Phase 2 trial with SL-701 in adult patients with second-line glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) is ongoing.
