GUANGZHOU, China

MaxiNovel Pharmaceuticals, Inc. announced today that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) has granted MaxiNovel Orphan Drug Designation for MAX-40279 in the treatment of Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML).

AML is the most common acute leukemia which accounts for approximately 25% of all adult leukemias worldwide. Approximately one-third of AML patients have a FLT3 gene mutation. Such mutation can result in faster disease progression, higher relapse rates and lower rates of survival than other forms of AML. Inhibition of FLT3 mutation is of high importance in combating AML.

In the preclinical testing, MAX-40279 demonstrated potent inhibition of both FLT3 and FGFR with excellent drug concentration in the bone marrow. It is designed to overcome the observed drug resistance of the current FLT3 inhibitors due to the bone marrow FGF/FGFR pathway activation.

“We are very pleased to receive the ODD,” commented MaxiNovel’s Vice President Dr. Elizabeth Ashraf. “Our objective is to bring the best in class medicine to the patients worldwide.”

The FDA Office of Orphan Products Development grants orphan drug designation to novel drugs and biologics that are intended for the safe and effective treatment, diagnosis or prevention of rare diseases or disorders that affect fewer than 200,000 people in the United States. The designation allows manufacturers to qualify for various incentives including federal grants, tax credits for qualified clinical trials, a waiver of PDUFA filing fees and 7 years of market exclusivity upon regulatory approval.
