14:33 EDTOMEDOncoMed presents final Phase 1b data for Tarextumab
OncoMed Pharmaceuticals presented final safety, efficacy and biomarker data from the company's Phase 1b "ALPINE" clinical trial of tarextumab in 40 patients with frontline metastatic pancreatic cancer. Tarextumab was generally well tolerated when administered with gemcitabine and Abraxane, with manageable, on-target drug-related toxicities. The Phase 2 dose of tarextumab was determined to be 15 mg/kg every two weeks in combination with the standard-of-care. Among patients evaluable for response using RECIST criteria, 38% achieved partial responses, with an additional 35% achieving stable disease for an overall clinical benefit rate of 73%. Median progression-free survival and overall survival values for the three drug combination of tarextumab-gemcitabine-Abraxane were 5.6 months and 11.6 months, respectively, for all patients treated with the three-drug combination. The data presented included biomarker analyses that showed that among patients whose tumor samples had elevated levels of Notch3 gene expression, trends toward higher response rates and longer survival were noted, as compared to patients with low Notch3 expression. Median PFS and OS for patients with high Notch 3 expression were 6.6 months and 14.6 months, respectively. Given the small sample size and potential imbalances in patient characteristics, these encouraging preliminary efficacy and predictive biomarker observations are being assessed in the ongoing randomized, placebo-controlled, Phase 2 ALPINE trial
