BioCryst Reports New Data from Its Phase 2 Forodesine Study in Patients
with Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia at the 52nd Annual American Society of
Hematology Meeting

“RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C,BioCryst Pharmaceuticals, Inc. today announced the
presentation of new data that confirms forodesine’s clinical activity in the treatment of chronic
lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) at the 52nd Annual American Society of Hematology (ASH) Meeting
& Exposition being held in Orlando, Florida.

In this Phase 2, open-label, single-arm, multi-center study, forodesine was administered orally
at 200 mg twice-daily for 28-day cycles in previously treated CLL patients. The primary endpoint
of the study was overall response rate. An analysis conducted after all patients were followed
through ≥6 months showed that six of 23 response-evaluable patients demonstrated a partial
response to forodesine, resulting in a response rate of 26 percent. Forodesine 200 mg orally-
administered twice-daily was generally safe and well-tolerated in this study. The pattern,
frequencies and severity distribution of adverse events were generally consistent with CLL-
associated poor bone marrow function and immunodeficiency, prior therapies and co-morbidities.”

“THOUSAND OAKS, Calif., Dec. 13, 3010 Amgen today announced top-line results from a Phase
3 trial evaluating XGEVA™ (denosumab) versus placebo in 1,432 men with castrate-resistant
prostate cancer. The trial, known as the '147 study, demonstrated that XGEVA significantly
improved median bone metastasis-free survival by 4.2 months (HR=0.85, 95 percent CI 0.73-
0.98, p=0.03) compared to placebo (primary endpoint), and significantly improved time to first
occurrence of bone metastases (secondary endpoint). Overall survival was similar between the

Overall rates of adverse events and serious adverse events were generally similar between
XGEVA and placebo, with hypocalcemia and osteonecrosis of the jaw (ONJ) observed at
increased frequencies in the XGEVA arm. The yearly rate of ONJ in the XGEVA-treated group
was similar to what has been observed in prior XGEVA trials.”
