06:07 EDTCRISCuris and Aurigene Discovery announce exclusive collaboration agreement
Curis and Aurigene Discovery Technologies announced that they have entered into an exclusive collaboration agreement focused on immuno-oncology and selected precision oncology targets. The collaboration provides for inclusion of multiple programs, with Curis having the option to exclusively license compounds once a development candidate is nominated within each respective program. The partnership draws from each company's respective areas of expertise, with Aurigene having the responsibility for conducting all discovery and preclinical activities, including IND-enabling studies and providing Phase 1 clinical trial supply, and Curis having responsibility for all clinical development, regulatory and commercialization efforts worldwide, excluding India and Russia, for each program for which it exercises an option to obtain a license. The first two programs under the collaboration are an orally-available small molecule antagonist of programmed death ligand-1 in the immuno-oncology field and an orally-available small molecule inhibitor of Interleukin-1 receptor-associated kinase 4 in the precision oncology field. Curis expects to exercise its option to obtain exclusive licenses to both programs and file IND applications for a development candidate from each in 2015. The agreement provides that the parties will collaborate exclusively in immuno-oncology for an initial period of approximately two years, with the option for Curis to extend the broad immuno-oncology exclusivity.In addition Curis has agreed to make payments to Aurigene as follows: For the first two programs: up to $52.5 million per program, including $42.5 million per program for approval and commercial milestones, plus specified approval milestone payments for additional indications, if any; For the third and fourth programs: up to $50 million per program, including $42.5 million per program for approval and commercial milestones, plus specified approval milestone payments for additional indications, if any; and for any program thereafter: up to $140.5 million per program, including $87.5 million per program in approval and commercial milestones, plus specified approval milestone payments for additional indications, if any. Curis has agreed to pay Aurigene royalties on any net sales ranging from high single digits to 10% in territories where it successfully commercializes products and will also share in amounts that it receives from sublicensees depending upon the stage of development of the respective molecule.

09:31 EDTPPHMPeregrine announces Ohase II clinical data of bavituximab with sorafenib
Peregrine Pharmaceuticals announced the presentation of clinical data related to the company's immuno-oncology development program and its lead investigational immunotherapy drug candidate bavituximab at the American Society of Clinical Oncology Gastrointestinal Cancers Symposium. In this single-center, single-arm, open-label investigator-sponsored trial, 38 patients with advanced HCC received bavituximab weekly and sorafenib twice daily until disease progression or toxicity. Data show that the combination of bavituximab and sorafenib is associated with an improved time to progression of 6.7 months, a disease specific survival of 8.7 months, a disease control rate of 58% and a 4-month progression-free survival of 62%. Two patients achieved a partial response according to Response Evaluation Criteria In Solid Tumors. The secondary endpoint of median overall survival was 6.2 months. The combination of bavituximab and sorafenib was well-tolerated in patients with advanced HCC with no indications of autoimmune adverse events that have been seen with other checkpoint immunotherapies.
