Sunesis Pharmaceuticals Inc was incorporated in the state of Delaware on February 10, 1998. It is a biopharmaceutical company focused on the development and commercialization of new oncology therapeutics for the treatment of solid and hematologic cancers. It currently focuses on the development of vosaroxin for the treatment of acute myeloid leukemia, or AML. Vosaroxin is an anti-cancer quinolone derivative, or AQD, a class of compounds that has not been used previously for the treatment of cancer. In October 2014, the Company announced the results of a Phase 3, multi-national, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial of vosaroxin in combination with cytarabine in patients with relapsed or refractory AML, or the VALOR trial. The VALOR trial, which enrolled 711 adult patients, was designed to evaluate the effect of vosaroxin in combination with cytarabine, most commonly used chemotherapy in AML, on overall survival as compared to placebo in combination with cytarabine, and was conducted at 124 study sites in the U.S., Canada, Europe, South Korea, Australia and New Zealand. It faces competition from many pharmaceutical, biopharmaceutical and biotechnology companies that are researching, developing and marketing products designed to address the treatment of cancer, including AML and ovarian cancer. In addition to regulations in the United States, the Company is subject to foreign regulations governing clinical trials and commercial sales and distribution of vosaroxin or its future drug candidates, if any.
