Agenus Reports Fourth Quarter And Year End 2012 Financial Results

The Cancer Therapy Evaluation Program (CTEP) of the National Cancer Institute (NCI) approved a study of the Prophage Series G-200 vaccine in a large, randomized Phase 2 trial in combination with Avastin ® (bevacizumab; Genentech/Roche) in patients with surgically resectable recurrent GBM. The study will be sponsored by the Alliance for Clinical Trials in Oncology, an NCI cooperative group. This trial will investigate the combination of G-200 and Avastin in a three-arm randomized study of approximately 220 patients with surgically resectable recurrent GBM. The study will compare efficacy of G-200 given with Avastin either concomitantly or at progression, versus Avastin alone, in the therapy of surgically resectable recurrent GBM. This study is anticipated to begin enrolling patients during the first half of 2013.

In addition to the recurrent GBM study with G-200, a Phase 2 trial testing the Prophage Series G-100 vaccine in patients with newly diagnosed glioma is underway. In this trial, G-100 is being used with the standard of care, which includes Temodar ® (Merck; temozolomide) and radiation. It is believed that the efficacy of G-100 could potentially be enhanced through this combination regimen. Preliminary findings from this study will be presented in a plenary session of a major medical meeting in early May 2013.
