08:25 EDTMACKMerrimack presents data from Phase 1 studies of MM-398, MM-151
Merrimack Pharmaceuticals announced data from multiple presentations. Data presented includes the first public presentation on the preclinical activity and potency of MM-131, and preclinical and clinical data on MM-151. An additional abstract details Phase 1 results from a clinical pilot study evaluating the feasibility of using ferumoxytol, an iron oxide nanoparticle, as a proxy to determine tumor responses to MM-398, nanoliposomal irinotecan. Computational modeling predicted that MM-131 would block HGF from binding to c-Met with higher potency through concurrent binding to epithelial cell adhesion molecule, an abundant protein on the cell surface of many cancer types. The models also suggested that the potency of MM-131 would increase with higher levels of EpCAM, as binding to EpCAM enables MM-131 to concentrate at the cell surface and effectively compete with HGF binding to c-Met. Preclinical studies validated this prediction and MM-131 was shown to inhibit HGF-mediated pathway activation and both the growth and migration of tumor cells across a panel of cell lines in vitro. Additionally, MM-131 inhibits tumor growth in models of c-Met-driven cancer in vivo. Overall, ferumoxytol was well tolerated. Adverse events of MM-398 therapy were consistent with previous studies, and no adverse events were directly attributable to ferumoxytol.

09:15 EDTMACKMerrimack to present advances on targeted cancer molecules
Merrimack Pharmaceuticals announced that it will present research on three of its therapeutic candidates at the 2014 AACR-NCI-EORTC International Conference on Molecular Targets and Cancer Therapeutics, November 18-21. Data will be shared in four poster sessions. Presentations will include results from a clinical study using ferumoxytol as a magnetic resonance imaging agent and its ability to predict tumor response to MM-398, preclinical and clinical research on MM-151 and an initial preclinical study of MM-131, a novel bispecific antibody targeting the c-Met tumor signaling pathway.

08:05 EDTMACKMerrimack shares should be bought on weakness, says Oppenheimer
After Merrimack announced a delay of about one quarter for the NDA submission of its MM-398, Oppenheimer's concern about the issue is limited. The firm says that the FDA appears to be interested in ensuring that MM-398 has extended nanoparticle stability, but does not appear to have identified a material deficit in the company's chemistry, manufacturing, and controls. Oppenheimer keeps an $11 price target and Outperform rating on Merrimack.
