16:16 EDTMACK, SNYMerrimack to regain worldwide rights to commercialize MM-121
Merrimack Pharmaceuticals (MACK) announced that it has reached an agreement with Sanofi (SNY) to regain worldwide rights to develop and commercialize MM-121, a monoclonal antibody designed to block ErbB3, or HER3, activation in patients with heregulin-positive tumors and improve response to standard of care treatments. In partnership with Sanofi, Merrimack completed an extensive Phase 2 program for MM-121 which was designed to assess the role of ErbB3 in a number of cancer indications in both the metastatic and neoadjuvant settings. In advanced settings of ovarian cancer, ER/PR+ HER2 negative breast cancer and non-small cell lung cancer, Merrimack was able to identify that heregulin, the principal ligand that binds to and activates the ErbB3 receptor, is associated with poor response to standard of care therapy and that adding MM-121 may restore sensitivity in these most at-risk patients. Consistent across three metastatic cancer indications with three different standard of care therapies, patients in these trials with heregulin-positive tumors experienced a statistically significant reduction in their risk of progression when they received a combination with MM-121. Heregulin-driven drug resistance pathways were found to be active in approximately 30%-50% of patients tested.
