Hybrigenics is developing inecalcitol, a vitamin D receptor agonist, characterized by enhanced activities against cancer cell proliferation and much reduced toxicity on blood calcium levels as compared to calcitriol, the active form of vitamin D. Therefore, inecalcitol can be given at high daily oral doses which exert cytostatic effects on tumors.
Acute myeloid leukemia (AML) has the worse prognosis of all types of leukemias (<25% 5-year survival). Furthermore, elderly or frail AML patients cannot support standard induction chemotherapy and are eligible only to treatment with either decitabine or azacytidine, two hypo-methylating agents. The goal is to increase overall survival of these desperate patients by adding daily oral inecalcitol to hypo-methylating therapy.
