GlycoMimetics, Inc. (Nasdaq: GLYC), a late clinical-stage biotechnology company discovering and developing glycobiology-based therapies for cancers and inflammatory diseases, today announced that data from two investigator-sponsored trials studying uproleselan in patients with acute myeloid leukemia (AML) have been accepted for poster presentation at the 64th American Society of Hematology (ASH) Annual Meeting.
“We are excited to share initial results from these two investigator-sponsored trials of uproleselan regarding safety and preliminary efficacy in frontline unfit and treated secondary AML populations not previously studied with this novel investigational agent,” said Edwin Rock, M.D., Ph.D., Chief Medical Officer. “These presentations provide the first uproleselan clinical data generated outside of company-sponsored studies. We thank these investigators and patients for their efforts and consent, respectively, to help us learn how adding uproleselan to existing therapies may benefit people with heterogeneous forms of AML.”
Details on GlycoMimetics posters at the ASH Meeting are as follows (all times CT):

Discovered and developed by GlycoMimetics, uproleselan is an investigational, first-in-class, targeted inhibitor of E-selectin. Uproleselan (yoo’ pro le’se lan), currently in a comprehensive Phase 3 development program in AML, has received Breakthrough Therapy Designation from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and from the Chinese National Medical Products Administration for the treatment of adult AML patients with relapsed or refractory disease. Uproleselan is designed to block E-selectin (an adhesion molecule on cells in the bone marrow) from binding with blood cancer cells as a targeted approach to disrupting well-established mechanisms of leukemic cell resistance within the bone marrow microenvironment.
About GlycoMimetics, Inc.
GlycoMimetics is a late clinical-stage biotechnology company discovering and developing glycobiology-based therapies for cancers, including acute myeloid leukemia (AML), and for inflammatory diseases with high unmet need. The Company’s science is based on understanding the role that carbohydrates play on the surface of every living cell and applying specialized chemistry to discover small molecule drugs, known as glycomimetics, that alter these carbohydrate-mediated pathways in diverse disease states, including cancer and inflammation. As a leader in this space, GlycoMimetics is leveraging this unique targeted approach to advance its pipeline of wholly-owned drug candidates, with the goal of developing transformative therapies for serious diseases. GlycoMimetics is in Rockville, MD in the BioHealth Capital Region. Learn more at www.glycomimetics.com.
