08:39 EDTMKGAYOncothyreon says Merck KGaA discontinues development of tecemotide in NSCLC
Oncothyreon (ONTY) disclosed earlier in a regulatory filing that Merck KGaA (MKGAY), which has world-wide rights for the development and commercialization of tecemotide under a license agreement with Oncothyreon, announced that its biopharmaceutical division will discontinue the clinical development program of the investigational MUC1 antigen-specific cancer immunotherapy as a monotherapy in Stage III non-small cell lung cancer, or NSCLC. The decision to discontinue the current clinical program in NSCLC, which includes the Phase III START2 and INSPIRE studies, follows recent results from a planned analysis of EMR 63325-009, a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled Phase I/II study in Japanese patients. Merck Serono has made the decision to discontinue all other Merck Serono-sponsored clinical trials with tecemotide in NSCLC worldwide. Those patients on active treatment with tecemotide can undergo an individual assessment by their treating physician and apply to receive further treatment outside of the studies. Merck Serono will continue to supply tecemotide for ongoing investigator-sponsored trials in other indications in accordance with their agreements with the sponsors of these studies. Shares of Oncothyreon are down 12% in pre-market trading following the news from its partner.
