08:36 EDTOMEDOncoMed presents data from Phase 1b clinical trial of demcizumab
OncoMed presented data from its ongoing Phase 1b clinical trial of demcizumab in first-line Stage IV pancreatic cancer patients. Demcizumab was generally well tolerated in combination with both gemcitabine and Abraxane with fatigue, hypertension, nausea and vomiting being the most common drug-related toxicities. No demcizumab-related reversible cardiotoxicity events have occurred with the implementation of regular monitoring, a truncated treatment approach and cardioprotective medication, if indicated. The combination of gemcitabine with or without Abraxane did not appear to influence the pharmacokinetics of demcizumab. 50% evaluable patients who received the demcizumab/gemcitabine/Abraxane combination had partial responses as measured by RECIST and two patients had stable disease resulting in a clinical benefit rate of 83%. A randomized Phase 2 clinical trial in patients with first-line pancreatic cancer is planned for the second half of 2014.

14:23 EDTOMEDOncoMed demcizumab trials show 'encouraging' safety and anti-tumor activity
OncoMed Pharmaceuticals presented safety and efficacy data from two Phase 1b clinical trials of demcizumab in pancreatic cancer and non-small cell lung cancer, NSCLC, at the European Society for Medical Oncology 2014 Congress in Madrid, Spain. Results from the Phase 1b studies demonstrate that demcizumab, in combination with standard-of-care chemotherapy, is well tolerated, especially in patients where the company's risk mitigation, monitoring and truncated dosing strategies have been employed. Encouraging tumor response rates were presented at ESMO from a study of demcizumab with gemcitabine or gemcitabine plus Abraxane in patients with first-line pancreatic cancer, and from the study of demcizumab plus pemetrexed and carboplatin for the first-line treatment of Stage III/IV NSCLC. OncoMed's Phase 1b studies identified the demcizumab dosing schedules for the company's planned randomized Phase 2 proof-of-concept trials.
