InvestorNewsBreaks – Processa Pharmaceuticals Inc. (NASDAQ: PCSA) Completes Phase 1b Safety Evaluation of NGC-Cap

Processa Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ: PCSA) is a clinical-stage pharmaceutical company focused on developing the next generation of chemotherapeutic drugs to improve the efficacy and safety for more patients suffering from cancer. The company today announced successful completion of the safety tolerability evaluation in its Phase 1b trial of Next Generation Capecitabine (“NGC-Cap”). Two dosage regimens were selected for the Phase 2 trial, which will be in advanced or metastatic breast cancer given FDA’s agreement that the Phase 1b data can be used to support the design of the Phase 2 trial in breast cancer. “Processa is very grateful to the patients and their physicians who participated in this trial and have been instrumental in our reaching these impactful findings. We are encouraged that NGC-Cap in the Phase 1b trial was tolerated better than or similar to the existing FDA-approved capecitabine even though the exposure to NGC-Cap’s 5-FU cancer-treating metabolite was 2-10 times that of capecitabine,” said David Young, PharmD, Ph.D., president of research and development at Processa. “This greater exposure suggests that NGC-Cap can distribute more 5-FU to the cancer cells, potentially forming more cancer-killing metabolites that, in our small number of patients, has shown to improve the cancer-killing effect of NGC-Cap over capecitabine.”

About Processa Pharmaceuticals Inc.

Processa is a clinical stage pharmaceutical company focused on developing the Next Generation Chemotherapy (“NGC”) drugs to improve the safety and efficacy of cancer treatment. By combining Processa’s novel oncology pipeline with proven cancer-killing active molecules and the Processa Regulatory Science Approach as well as experience in defining Optimal Dosage Regimens for FDA approvals, Processa not only will be providing better therapy options to cancer patients but also increasing the probability of FDA approval for its Next Generation Chemotherapy (“NGC”) drugs following an efficient path to approval. The company’s approach to drug development is based on more than 30 years of experience and uses its proven approach, including the determination of the Optimal Dosage Regimen using the principles of the FDA’s Project Optimus Oncology initiative. Processa’s NGC drugs are modifications of existing FDA-approved oncology drugs resulting in an alteration of the metabolism and/or distribution of these FDA-approved drugs while maintaining the existing mechanisms of killing the cancer cells. The advantages of Processa’s NGCs are expected to include fewer patients experiencing side effects that lead to dose discontinuation, more significant cancer response and a greater number of patients – over 250,000 patients treated each year for each drug — who will benefit from each NGC drug. Currently under development are three next generation chemotherapy oncology treatments: Next Generation Capecitabine (“PCS6422” and capecitabine to treat breast, metastatic colorectal, gastrointestinal, pancreatic, and other cancers), Next Generation Gemcitabine (“PCS3117” to treat pancreatic, lung, ovarian, breast, and other cancers), and Next Generation Irinotecan (“PCS11T” to treat lung, colorectal, gastrointestinal, pancreatic, and other cancers).
