The strong rebuke by the FDA and its Oncologic Drugs Advisory Committee (ODAC) to ASTX's attempt to gain approval for DACOGEN (decitabine) for elderly AML patients raised significant doubts as to whether the drug will gain approval in this indication in the US or Europe. If not, increased attention will shift to the rest of the company's pipeline. The slide deck from the companies joint analyst and investor R&D day in April 2011 is a good place to start. Find these presentations below and as always get more details on the ASTX research pages. Look forward to additional analysis of these programs here at BiotechDueDiligence and for Chimera Research Group subscribers.
