INNOVIVE Pharmaceuticals Discontinues Development of INNO-105

NEW YORK--(HSMN NewsFeed)--INNOVIVE Pharmaceuticals, Inc. today announced that, based on results of a Phase 1 clinical trial, it will discontinue development of INNO-105.

"After careful review of trial results, we have decided to concentrate our resources on the rest of our oncology pipeline and to seek more promising compounds," said Steven Kelly, President and Chief Executive Officer, INNOVIVE.

Trial results showed that INNO-105 appears unlikely to achieve desired plasma levels without demonstrating adverse side effects. The compound is a naturally occurring peptide that inhibits cell growth and division by interacting with OGFr, a unique receptor found on the nuclear membrane of a wide range of malignant cells.
