Mitesh Borad ESMO 2012 300x225 ESMO 2012: TH 302 Pancreatic Cancer Survival Data Fails to ImpressAt the 2012 Congress of the European Society for Medical Oncology (ESMO 2012) in Vienna,  Mitesh J. Borad MD, Assistant Professor of Medicine at the Mayo Clinic in Scottsdale, AZ presented the results of the TH-CR-404 phase 2 clinical trial that compared the efficacy and safety of TH-302 (Threshold Pharmaceuticals) plus gemicitabine versus gemcitabine alone in patients with untreated advanced pancreatic cancer.

TH-302 is an experimental cancer drug in development that kills cells i.e. is cytotoxic under conditions of low oxygen (hypoxia) found in the microenvironment of cancer tumors. Sally Church, PhD on Pharma Strategy Blog has written about the mechanism of action for TH-302 and the results presented earlier this year at the 2012 annual meeting of the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR).
