08:37 EDTOMED, BAYRYOncoMed begins second Phase 1b clinical trial for OMP-54F28 with sorafenib
OncoMed Pharmaceuticals (OMED) announced that it has started a multi-center Phase 1b clinical trial of OMP-54F28 with sorafenib in hepatocellular cancer, or HCC. OMP-54F28 is a first-in-class Wnt-pathway-targeting decoy receptor and is part of OncoMed's collaboration with Bayer Pharma AG (BAYRY). This is the second of three Phase 1b trials for OMP-54F28 to begin patient enrollment; earlier this year OncoMed initiated a Phase 1b of OMP-54F28 with nab-paclitaxel and gemcitabine in pancreatic cancer. The Phase 1b clinical trial is a dose-escalation study of OMP-54F28 in combination with sorafenib in patients with first-line locally advanced or metastatic HCC. Primary objectives of the trial are to evaluate safety of this combination regimen and determine a recommended Phase 2 dose for OMP-54F28 in combination with sorafenib. Key secondary and exploratory objectives include evaluation of the pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of OMP-54F28, as well as the efficacy of this combination. Tumor tissue from patients will be used to explore predictive biomarker hypotheses related to the efficacy of OMP-54F28.

08:32 EDTOMEDOncoMed initiates Phase 2 ALPINE trial of tarextumab
OncoMed Pharmaceuticals announced that patient dosing has begun in the randomized, placebo-controlled Phase 2 portion of the company's "ALPINE", or Antibody therapy in first-Line Pancreatic cancer Investigating anti-Notch Efficacy and safety, clinical trial of its anti-Notch 2/3 cancer stem cell antibody, tarextumab, being studied for the treatment of pancreatic cancer. Tarextumab is being tested in combination with Abraxane plus gemcitabine in patients with previously untreated stage IV pancreatic cancer. The ALPINE trial is being conducted at up to 30 sites in the U.S. and is expected to enroll approximately 124 patients. The Phase 2 clinical trial will compare the progression-free survival, or PFS, of 15 mg/kg tarextumab administered every two weeks versus placebo in combination with Abraxane plus gemcitabine in all patients. Additionally, PFS will be assessed using a predictive biomarker for high tumor Notch3 expression. Secondary and exploratory endpoints, including overall survival and overall response rate, pharmacokinetics, safety and other biomarkers, will also be evaluated.
