07:09 EDTBMY, INCY, MRKIncyte, Bristol-Myers enter agreement to evaluate two Immunotherapies
Bristol-Myers Squibb (BMY) and Incyte (INCY) announced the establishment of a clinical trial collaboration to evaluate the safety, tolerability and preliminary efficacy of a combination regimen of Bristol-Myers Squibb’s investigational PD-1 immune checkpoint inhibitor, nivolumab, and Incyte’s oral indoleamine dioxygenase-1 inhibitor, INCB24360, in a Phase I/II study. Multiple tumor types will be explored in the study, which could potentially include melanoma, non-small cell lung, ovarian, colorectal, squamous cell carcinoma of the head and neck and diffuse large B-cell lymphoma. The study, which is expected to begin in Q4 will be co-funded by the companies and conducted by Incyte. Additional details of the collaboration were not disclosed. INCB24360 is currently in Phase I/II development for metastatic melanoma in combination with ipilimumab and as monotherapy for ovarian cancer. Incyte has also established a clinical agreement with Merck (MRK) to combine INCB24360 with Merck’s (MRK) anti-PD-1 immunotherapy checkpoint inhibitor in a non-small cell lung cancer study.

Bristol-Myers Squibb Company announced that it has completed the previously announced planned acquisition of Flexus Biosciences, Inc. The transaction includes full rights to F001287, Flexus’ lead preclinical, small-molecule IDO1-inhibitor targeted for IND filing in the second half of 2015 and an IDO/TDO discovery program that includes its IDO-selective, IDO/TDO dual and TDO-selective compound libraries. A newly formed entity established by the current shareholders of Flexus will retain, from and after the closing, all non-IDO/TDO assets of Flexus including those related to Flexus’ Phase 1 FLT3 and CDK4/6 inhibitor, its earlier stage small-molecule Treg cancer immunotherapy programs, and its current personnel and facilities.
07:33 EDTMRKAdvaxis, Merck begin enrollment in Phase 1/2 of ADJX-PSA with Keytruda
Advaxis (ADXS) and Merck (MRK) announced that enrollment has initiated in the Phase 1/2 clinical trial evaluating the combination of ADXS-PSA, an investigational Lm-LLO immunotherapy, and Keytruda, the first anti-PD-1 therapy approved in the United States, in patients with previously treated, metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer, or mCRPC. The clinical trial, KEYNOTE-046, is the first-in-human study of Advaxis's lead Lm-LLO immunotherapy candidate for prostate cancer. It is the second study initiated to evaluate the use of KEYTRUDA in the treatment of advanced prostate cancer. ADXS-PSA and KEYTRUDA are members of a class of cancer treatments known as immuno-oncology therapies. Data from preclinical studies suggest that Advaxis Lm-LLO immunotherapies in combination with a PD-1 antibody may lead to an enhanced anti-tumor immune response. The results from KEYNOTE-046 will determine the future clinical development program for the combination.
