08:16 EDTBAXMerrimack data of Phase 3 MM-398 NAPOLI-1 study supports development programs
Merrimack Pharmaceuticals (MACK) announced that additional analyses were presented on January 16, 2015 from the Phase 3 NAPOLI-1 study of MM-398, also known as nal-IRI, in patients with metastatic pancreatic cancer previously treated with gemcitabine-based therapy. Merrimack and Baxter International's (BAX) biopharmaceutical business are collaborating on the development and commercialization of MM-398 outside of the United States and Taiwan. PharmaEngine holds the rights to commercialize MM-398 in Taiwan. Additionally, Merrimack presented preclinical and clinical data from studies of its investigational agents MM-141 and MM-151 in pancreatic and colorectal cancer, respectively. An investigator-sponsored study of MM-398 in colorectal cancer was also presented. The extended analyses for the global NAPOLI-1 Phase 3 trial presented at ASCO GI support the robustness of the overall survival benefit of MM-398 in combination with 5-fluorouracil, or 5-FU, and leucovorin presented in June 2014, at the European Society for Medical Oncology World Congress on Gastrointestinal Cancer, or ESMO GI. The primary analysis, presented at ESMO GI, demonstrated a statistically significant advantage in overall survival with an unstratified hazard ratio of 0.67, and a median of 6.1 months for the combination of MM-398 plus 5-FU and leucovorin compared to 4.2 months in the control arm.
