Solasia Pharma K.K. (Headquarters: Tokyo, Japan, President: Yoshihiro Arai, hereinafter “Solasia”) announced today that an Asian Multinational Phase II study of SP-02 (darinaparsin) for injection (SP-02L) for the treatment of relapsed and refractory peripheral T-cell lymphoma (PTCL) has commenced. This single-arm, open-label, non-randomized study is being conducted in Japan, South Korea, Taiwan and Hong Kong; to evaluate the efficacy and safety of SP-02L monotherapy.

SP-02 is a novel mitochondrial-targeted agent being developed for the treatment of various hematologic and solid cancers. In a US Phase II study, SP-02 demonstrated clinical activity in lymphoma, in particular PTCL. In Phase I studies, in Japan and South Korea, safety and potential efficacy against PTCL have also been demonstrated. Based on the Phase II result, Solasia intends to file for registration in Japan, South Korea, Taiwan and Hong Kong.

Solasia obtained an exclusive worldwide license to develop and commercialize SP-02 from ZIOPHARM Oncology, Inc. (Nasdaq: ZIOP), and the company is currently conducting clinical trials in Japan and other parts of Asia. Solasia granted development and commercialization rights of SP-02 in Japan to Meiji Seika Pharma Co. Ltd.
