ImmunoGen, Inc. Announces Presentation Of New IMGN901 Clinical Data

In addition to SCLC, other CD56+ cancers include multiple myeloma and Merkel cell carcinoma. In early-stage clinical testing, IMGN901 has demonstrated encouraging activity in these cancers as well as in SCLC and also has orphan drug designation for them.

About SCLC

It is estimated that approximately 29,400 new cases of SCLC will be diagnosed in the United States this year. 1 SCLC almost universally expresses CD56. Approximately two-thirds of patients have extensive disease at the time of diagnosis, as SCLC tends to spread broadly through the body quite early in its course. 2 As a result, SCLC is usually treated with chemotherapy rather than with surgery. 3 Median PFS for extensive disease SCLC is approximately 5.5 months, while median overall survival averages 9-11 months. 3,4
