NOX and US NCI announce brain cancer research collaboration (MCRADA)

Jul

European Patent Office issues official Notice of Allowance on Veyonda® patent - claims encompass administration of Veyonda in cancer patients receiving chemotherapy or radiotherapy.

Nov

IONIC-1. Agreement is reached for a study combining Veyonda with the Bristol Myers Squibb immune checkpoint inhibitor (CI) drug Opdivo®(nivolumab) aiming to demonstrate that in solid tumours 1) For cancer types that are known to respond to checkpoint inhibitors (CI’s) Veyonda combined Opdivo will result in a higher proportion of patients that respond to CI treatment and 2) For cancer types that don’t typically respond to CI therapy, the combination of Veyonda with Opdivo will result in a response

Nov

Pharmorage Pty Ltd is established as a wholly owned subsidiary of Noxopharm, dedicated to the discovery of treatments for septic shock and autoimmune diseases.

Oct

NOXCOVID study commences. The first patient hospitalised with moderate COVID-19 is treated with Veyonda with the aim to demonstrate that Veyonda is well tolerated and able to stop worsening of the disease

Aug

LuPIN data published in peer-reviewed oncology journal in Aug 2020

Jun

DARRT-1 and LuPIN data presented at ASCO in June

Apr

Pre-Clinical data:
Hudson Institute identifies anti-inflammatory properties of idronoxil as consistent with blocking ‘cytokine storm’ believed responsible for many COVID-19 deaths

Apr

Pre-Clinical data:
Two research groups demonstrate that idronoxil turns ‘COLD’ tumours into ‘HOT’

Mar

LuPIN trial fully recruited, combining Veyonda with 177Lutetium-PSMA-617 (Lu-PSMA), a radionuclide for the management of advanced prostate cancer that has stopped responding to standard therapy, investigating whether 1) the immuno-oncology action of Veyonda increases the proportion of men responding meaningfully to Lu-PSMA and 2) whether Veyonda in combination with Lu-PSMA increases the durability of the anti-cancer response

Feb

CEP-2. FDA grants Investigational New Drug status for Veyonda for combination treatment with doxorubicin in patients with soft tissue sarcomas enabling planning for CEP-2 study in the USA. This approval is based upon evidence that Veyonda may improve the response rate of sarcoma cancers to chemotherapy.  This group of cancers generally responds poorly to standard chemotherapy.

Jan

Nyrada Inc successful IPO. Nyrada lists on the ASX, raising $8.5M. Nyrada continues in its venture to develop therapies for cardiovascular and neurologial disorders, Noxopharm Limited retaining 30% of shares

DARRT-1 study: Study Completed

DARRT-1 and LuPIN study: Results presented at COSA Conference

Aug

Pre-clinical evidence of abscopal effect is seen in animal models in pre-clinical research. This is a rare response where radiation is applied to individual tumours and leads to a response both in the irradiated tumours as well as tumours elsewhere in the body.

May

DARRT-1 study fully enrolled. Combining Veyonda with radiotherapy (RT) in patients with metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer (mCRPC) that had progressed on all available treatments. Aiming to demonstarte that 1) Veyonda is safe and well-tolerated when combined with low-dose radiotherapy and 2) Veyonda plus low-dose RT results in improved outcomes versus radiotherapy alone

May

Immuno-oncology effect. Pre-clinical studies demonstrate that idronoxil, the active in Veyonda activates the immune system, a potential anti-cancer actvity.

Apr

Pre-Clinical studies confirm that IDX activates immune system

2018

Nov

CEP-1 study complete. A combination of Veyonda and low-dose carboplatin chemotherapy is safe and provides indication of suspension of tumour growth, or better, for at least 6 months in solid tumours (breast, ovarian, lung, prostate) in nearly 50% of patients considered unlikely to respond to further chemotherapy

Aug

First report of an abscopal response evident in patients in DARRT-1 study

May

Pre-clinical studies:
Veyonda demonstrates immune activating function (important anti-cancer effect)

Apr

DARRT-1 clinical study commences. The first cohort of patients commences treatment combining Veyonda with radiotherapy (RT) in patients with metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer (mCRPC) that had progressed on all available treatments. The objective is to demonstarte that 1) Veyonda is safe and well-tolerated when combined with low-dose radiotherapy and 2) Veyonda plus low-dose RT results in improved outcomes versus radiotherapy alone

Mar

$10.9M raised via the placement of fully paid ordinary shares to sophisticated and institutional investors to support ongoing clinical program

Mar

Abscopal response - a rare response where radiation is applied to individual tumours and leads to a response both in the irradiated tumours as well as tumours elsewhere in the body. Evidence of an abscopal response in two patients receiving Veyonda on a compassionate use basis outside of the formal Noxopharm clinical trial program is presented at a national oncology conference.

2017

Nov

LuPIN study. The first patient is treated in the LuPIN study, combining Veyonda with 177Lutetium-PSMA-617 (Lu-PSMA), a radionuclide for the management of advanced prostate cancer that has stopped responding to standard therapy. Exploring whether 1) the immuno-oncology action of Veyonda increases the proportion of men responding meaningfully to Lu-PSMA and 2) whether Veyonda in combination with Lu-PSMA increases the durability of the anti-cancer response
