10:08 EDTIMMUImmunomedics provides update on subcutaneous injections of Veltuzumab
Immunomedics announced that subcutaneous administration of veltuzumab, as a single agent, demonstrated promising activity in patients with relapsed immune thrombocytopenia, even in more heavily treated patients with the chronic disease, and in patients with chronic lymphocytic leukemia. In a published study, veltuzumab reversed life threatening anemia and thrombocytopenia in a patient with systemic lupus erythematosus who was unresponsive to rituximab. In non-Hodgkin lymphoma patients who had received prior therapies, 4 once-weekly infusions of veltuzumab produced a complete response rate of 25% in a study of 84 patients, even at the low dose of 80 mg/m2 given intravenously.

08:35 EDTIMMUImmunomedics granted FDA orphan drug designation for veltuzumab
Immunomedics announced that the Office of Orphan Products Development of the FDA has granted orphan status for the use of veltuzumab, the company's humanized anti-CD20 antibody, for the treatment of pemphigus. Pemphigus is a debilitating and potentially fatal autoimmune blistering disease of the skin and mucous membranes. In most cases, irregularly-shaped, painful erosions or lesions initially develop in the mucous membranes lining the inside of the mouth. To maintain disease control typically requires long-term exposure to corticosteroids and other drugs which suppress the immune system and may themselves contribute to osteoporosis, septicemia, and other serious adverse events seen in this population.
