Independent Data Monitoring Committee Recommends Continuation of Cancer Prevention Pharmaceuticals’ Phase 3 Trial for Familial Adenomatous Polyposis Patients


Cancer Prevention Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (CPP), a private biotech company developing novel therapeutics to prevent cancer and other diseases, announced today that an Independent Data Monitoring Committee (IDMC), following a planned interim futility analysis, recommended continuation of the company’s pivotal Phase 3 trial, CPP FAP-310, evaluating CPP-1X/sulindac for adults with familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP).

FAP is a rare genetic disease that if left untreated progresses to colorectal cancer in nearly 100% of patients. For most FAP patients, current medical practice recommends a lifetime of periodic monitoring as well as surgeries (FAP-related events). These FAP-related events include surgical removal of the colon, rectum, surgical pouch, duodenum, and/or high risk adenomas.
