GTx, Inc. Completes Enrollment Of Phase II Ostarine Trial

July 22, 2017

GTx, Inc. (Nasdaq: GTXI), the Men's Health Biotech Company, today announced completion of recruitment of its proof of concept Phase II clinical trial of its first- in-class drug candidate, ostarine, a selective androgen receptor modulator (SARM). GTx expects to report data from the trial in the fourth quarter.

"We are pleased to announce the successful enrollment of our ostarine proof of concept trial," said Mitchell S. Steiner, M.D., Chief Executive Officer of GTx. "The trial is designed to give us comprehensive clinical information on ostarine that will be critical to the design of Phase IIb and Phase III clinical trials."

GTx initiated the proof of concept Phase II clinical trial of ostarine in May 2006. The three month placebo controlled clinical trial is evaluating multiple doses of ostarine in 60 elderly men and 60 postmenopausal women. The trial is designed to evaluate the activity of ostarine on building muscle and promoting bone as well as to assess safety in both elderly men and postmenopausal women. GTx expects to report the data from the Phase II clinical trial in the fourth quarter of 2006. Based on ostarine's Phase II clinical data profile, GTx will select specific acute and chronic bone and/or muscle wasting diseases for further development. GTx plans to initiate a Phase IIb or Phase III clinical trial in the first half of 2007.
