Rocky Road To Glioma Approval: BNCT Firm Stella Redesigns Japan PII Trial

Executive Summary

Japanese bioventure Stella Pharma is re-designing a Phase II trial for its glioma candidate Steboronine after it was determined the original primary endpoint was not robust enough to prove efficacy, a challenge faced by some others working in the difficult indication. The drug was approved for head and neck cancer in Japan in 2020 and Stella has already announced a new collaboration which may be key to moving forward.
