FLEMINGTON, N.J.--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--Arno Therapeutics, Inc. (OTCQB:ARNI), a clinical stage biopharmaceutical company focused on the development of therapeutics for cancer and other life threatening diseases, today announced that it has concluded not to enroll the remaining 3 patients in the Company’s ongoing Phase 2 clinical trial of onapristone in combination with Zytiga® (abiraterone acetate) in men with advanced castration-resistant prostate cancer (CRPC) who have failed Zytiga alone. This Phase 2 study protocol requires an efficacy review after the enrollment of 18 patients. To date, 15 patients have been enrolled. The Company does not believe the data collected from the first 12 patients in this study justifies the enrollment of additional subjects. The Company’s decision was not based on any safety signal and it will continue to monitor and to provide Onapristone to all patients currently enrolled in this trial.
The Company also announced that its Board of Directors is evaluating all potential development, strategic and other corporate opportunities available to the Company involving its onapristone, AR-42 and AR-12 product candidates.
