08:57 EDTOMED, BAYRYOncoMed commences third Phase 1b clinical trial for OMP-54F28
OncoMed Pharmaceuticals (OMED) announced the initiation of patient treatment for its third multi-center Phase 1b clinical trial of OMP-54F28 with carboplatin and paclitaxel in patients with platinum-sensitive ovarian cancer. OMP-54F28 is a first-in-class decoy receptor targeting the Wnt pathway and is part of OncoMed's collaboration with Bayer Pharma AG (BAYRY). The Phase 1b clinical trial of OMP-54F28 in combination with carboplatin and paclitaxel is a dose-escalation study in patients with recurrent platinum-sensitive ovarian cancer. 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 carboplatin and paclitaxel. 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.

08:35 EDTOMEDOncoMed initiates dosing in randomized Phase 2 clinical trial of demcizumab
OncoMed Pharmaceuticals announced that dosing has begun in the randomized Phase 2 clinical trial of demcizumab in patients with first-line metastatic pancreatic cancer. The double-blind, placebo-controlled Phase 2 "YOSEMITE" clinical trial is designed to compare the efficacy and safety of demcizumab combined with standard of care Abraxane plus gemcitabine in patients with first-line metastatic pancreatic cancer. The primary endpoint of the trial is progression-free survival. Secondary endpoints include overall survival, response rate, duration of response, safety, immunogenicity and pharmacokinetics. Approximately 200 patients will be randomized into one of three study arms. Patients in Arm 1 will receive Abraxane plus gemcitabine plus placebo. Patients in Arm 2 will receive standard of care plus one course of demcizumab 3.5 mg/kg every two weeks for 70 days. Patients in Arm 3 will receive standard of care plus a second course of demcizumab following a 100-day wash out period. The Phase 2 trial is being conducted at approximately 50 centers in the U.S., Canada, Europe and Australia.

06:35 EDTOMEDOncoMed's Demcizumab shows positive Phase 1b clinical trial results
OncoMed presented new data from the Phase 1b clinical trial of demcizumab in patients with first-line advanced non-small cell lung cancer at the European Lung Cancer Conference. Demcizumab is a first-in-class monoclonal antibody targeting DLL4 with anti-cancer stem cell, dysangiogenesis and potential immune modulatory properties. Of 40 patients evaluable for efficacy, the overall RECIST response rate was 50% and an additional 15 patients had a best response of stable disease, yielding a clinical benefit rate of 88%. Median progression-free survival was 5.3 months and 5.8 months for the continuous and truncated cohorts, respectively. Prolonged PFS and OS were observed for a subset of patients treated with continuous demcizumab. A randomized Phase 2 trial of demcizumab with carboplatin and pemetrexed in first-line non-squamous NSCLC has been initiated and is enrolling subjects in Europe, Australia, and the United States.
