Soligenix (NASDAQ: SNGX), a late-stage biopharmaceutical company focused on developing and commercializing products to treat rare diseases where there is an unmet medical need, announced today completion of patient enrollment in its Phase 3 “Fluorescent Light Activated Synthetic Hypericin” (“FLASH”) study for SGX301 (“synthetic hypericin”) in the treatment of cutaneous T-cell lymphoma (“CTCL”). According to the update, 169 subjects were successfully enrolled in the study following positive interim analysis, which included a prospectively defined, unblinded assessment of the study’s primary efficacy endpoint by an independent Data Monitoring Committee (“DMC”). “We are pleased to have completed enrollment and look forward to the top-line results in the first quarter of next year, particularly in light of the DMC recommendation at the interim analysis which observed a beneficial drug effect,” Soligenix President and Chief Executive Officer Christopher J. Schaber, PhD, said in the news release. “We have invested a significant amount of the Company’s resources into the CTCL development program and continue to positively position this fast-tracked program for approval. We believe SGX301 has the potential to be a valuable therapy in the front-line treatment of early stage CTCL, which is an orphan disease and area of unmet medical need.”
