Celldex’s CDX-011 Demonstrates High Response Rates In Patients With Metastatic Breast Cancer Expressing Elevated Levels Of GPNMB And In Triple Negative Disease

Stocks in this article: CLDX

Celldex Therapeutics, Inc. (NASDAQ: CLDX) today announced preliminary results from the Company’s randomized Phase 2b EMERGE study of CDX-011 (glembatumumab vedotin) antibody drug conjugate in patients with glycoprotein NMB (GPNMB) expressing, advanced, heavily pretreated breast cancer. Preliminary results suggest that CDX-011 induces impressive response rates compared to current, available therapies in patients with advanced, refractory breast cancers with high GPNMB expression (expression in ≥25% of tumor cells). In this high expressing patient population, treatment with CDX-011 resulted in a 32% overall response rate (ORR; includes confirmed and unconfirmed responses), whereas treatment with Investigator’s Choice (IC) single-agent chemotherapy resulted in a 13% ORR. CDX-011 also demonstrated strong response rates in patients with triple negative breast cancer across all levels of GPNMB expression (CDX-011 ORR of 21%; IC ORR of 0%), where treatment options are extremely limited. In addition, in patients with triple negative breast cancer who also highly express GPNMB, greater activity was observed (CDX-011 ORR of 36%; IC ORR of 0%). The ORR across all levels of GPNMB expression was 19% for the CDX-011 arm and 14% for the IC arm, and a direct, positive correlation was observed between increasing levels of GPNMB expression and increased CDX-011 response rates. Based on these data, the Company believes CDX-011 has significant promise as a targeted therapy for patients with breast cancer and high expression of GPNMB, and especially for those with triple negative disease.

While data in the study are not yet mature, in patients with high GPNMB in the CDX-011 arm, a trend of improvement in progression-free survival (PFS) has been observed. In patients with both triple negative breast cancer and high GPNMB expression, a statistically significant PFS benefit is currently observed (p=0.0032). Study data continue to mature and patients continue to be followed. The Company anticipates updating results in the fourth quarter of 2012.
