08:30 EDTCRIS, RHHBYCuris licenses worldwide development, commercialization rights for IAP Inhibitor
Curis (CRIS) announced that it has licensed from Genentech, a member of the Roche Group, (RHHBY), exclusive, worldwide rights for the development and commercialization of GDC-0917, a small molecule that is designed to promote cancer cell death by antagonizing inhibitor of apoptosis proteins. Genentech has recently completed a Phase I clinical trial of GDC-0917, in which 42 people received daily oral doses of GDC-0917 for two weeks, followed by a one week rest period. This 21-day cycle is repeated until disease progression or study discontinuation for any other reason. The primary endpoints of the study include evaluating the safety and tolerability and the pharmacokinetics of GDC-0917 in people with solid tumors or lymphoma and determining the maximum-tolerated-dose and a potential recommended dose for further clinical studies. Secondary endpoints include a preliminary assessment of anti-tumor activity of GDC-0917 and evaluating pharmacodynamic markers. Genentech plans to present full study results at a medical conference in mid-2013, Curis said.

06:18 EDTRHHBYEMA warns that stolen Roche drug found on market
The European Medicines Agency has been informed that vials of the cancer medicine Herceptin, thought to have been stolen in Italy, including from hospitals, have been tampered with and re-introduced under false credentials into the supply chain in some countries. This is currently being investigated by Member State authorities and updates will be provided as more information becomes available. Italian law enforcement authorities are currently investigating the theft and are looking at whether other medicines may also be affected. No affected product has so far been identified at hospital level and there are no reports that any harm has come to patients in relation to the falsified medicine and authorities are working to avoid this. The marketing authorisation holder for Herceptin is Roche.

16:10 EDTRHHBYProthena says first human dosed in Phase 1 study of PRX002
Prothena (PRTA) announced the successful start of a Phase 1 clinical trial of its therapeutic monoclonal antibody candidate, PRX002, for the treatment of Parkinson's disease. Prothena has earned a $15M milestone payment from Roche (RHHBY) related to the initiation of this study. The initial Phase 1 clinical trial of PRX002 is a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, single ascending dose study in healthy subjects. It is designed to assess PRX002 for safety, tolerability, pharmacokinetics and immunogenicity. As previously announced in December 2013, Prothena entered into a worldwide collaboration with Roche to develop and commercialize antibodies that target α-synuclein, including PRX002. Including the current milestone payment, Prothena has now achieved a total of $45M through its worldwide PRX002 collaboration with Roche.

16:11 EDTCRISCuris, Debiopharm Group report preclinical data for Debio 0932
Curis and Debiopharm Group announced the presentation of data for Debio 0932 at the Annual Meeting of the American Association for Cancer Research, or AACR, that demonstrated synergy between Debio 0932 and various standard of care, or SOC, agents in multiple in vitro and xenograft models of non-small cell lung cancer, or NSCLC, and renal cell carcinoma, or RCC. Debio 0932 is currently being investigated in a Phase 1/2 trial in combination with SOC agents in patients with advanced NSCLC and in a Phase 1 trial in combination with everolimus, a mTOR inhibitor, in advanced RCC patients. In a high throughput combination screen performed with six different human NSCLC cell lines, Debio 0932 demonstrated consistent synergy with microtubule and mTOR/ Akt targeting agents across all six cell lines. Additionally, Debio 0932 also showed strong synergy with everolimus in multiple patient derived and conventional RCC cell lines. Similar synergy and anti-tumor activity with Debio 0932 in combination with these agents was also demonstrated in human xenograft models of NSCLC and RCC.
