20:02 EDTMRKMerck announces interim results evaluating MK-5172 in HCV therapy
Merck announced interim results from a Phase II, multi-center, randomized, dose-ranging study (n=332) assessing the safety and antiviral activity of MK-5172, an investigational, once-daily, oral NS3/4A protease inhibitor for the treatment of chronic hepatitis C virus, HCV, genotype 1 infection in combination therapy in treatment-naïve patients. These data will be presented this week at the American Association for the Study of Liver Diseases Annual Meeting, AASLD. In the initial cohort, termed the "Vanguard Cohort," (n=136), 96 percent of patients (25/26) who received a regimen containing 100 mg QD of MK-5172 with PR achieved sustained virologic response, SVR, 12, defined as having undetectable virus (HCV RNA) 12 weeks after treatment ended, compared to 54 percent of patients (13/24) in the control arm. “We are excited by these interim results evaluating MK-5172 in combination therapy,” said Eliav Barr, M.D., vice president, Infectious Diseases, Project Leadership and Management, Merck Research Laboratories. “Our commitment to chronic hepatitis C remains steadfast. We look forward to continuing our studies of MK-5172, including in interferon-free regimens." Currently planned studies evaluating interferon-free regimens with MK-5172 will be dosed at 100 mg QD. .

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.
