Treatment With PROVENGE® (sipuleucel-T) Induces Antigen Spread Associated With Overall Survival Benefits In Advanced Prostate Cancer

May 20, 2014-Dendreon Corporation (NASDAQ: DNDN) today announced the presentation of data from the ProACT and IMPACT studies suggesting that PROVENGE ® (sipuleucel-T) elicits an immune response associated with an overall survival benefit. Also being presented are data from the PROCEED registry suggesting similar treatment patterns for urologists and oncologists in PROVENGE-treated patients with metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer (mCRPC). The ProACT and IMPACT data will be reported in a podium presentation and the PROCEED data will be included in a general poster session during the 2014 American Urological Association (AUA) Annual Meeting from May 16-21, 2014 in Orlando, Florida.

“These data further elucidate the mechanism of PROVENGE in the treatment of mCRPC and the important role immunotherapy plays in the prescribing practices of urologists and oncologists, which may improve outcomes for patients,” said Andrew S. Sandler, M.D., executive vice president and chief medical officer at Dendreon. “The elevated immune response against prostate-specific antigen (PSA) in the ProACT and IMPACT studies is correlated with overall survival, and may point to a useful biomarker of treatment benefit.”

Clinical presentations featuring PROVENGE studies at the annual scientific urology meeting include:

  • Abstract PD27-04: Simon Hall, M.D., associate professor of urology at Mt. Sinai Hospital, will present “ Sipuleucel-T-Induced Antigen Spread: Immune Response to Prostate-Specific Antigen Correlates with Improved Overall Survival:” Data from the Phase III IMPACT and Phase II ProACT studies show evidence that antigen spread may occur after PROVENGE treatment, indicating the immune response evolves over time to target multiple prostate antigens. These data may help identify biomarkers of clinical outcome after treatment with PROVENGE. May 20,8:00 AM – 10:00 AM ET, Prostate Cancer: Advanced I (Podium Presentation, Room W304E)
  • Abstract MP70-20: Matthew R. Cooperberg, M.D., M.P.H, associate professor of urology at University of California, San Francisco, will present a poster titled “ Treatment Practice Patterns in Metastatic Castration-Resistant Prostate Cancer (mCRPC) Patients Prior to Receiving Sipuleucel-T: Data from PROCEED:” A subgroup analysis from the ongoing Phase IV registry of mCRPC patients suggest treatment patterns between urologists and oncologists are similar, helping to better understand prescribing trends prior to and following use of PROVENGE. May 20,10:30 AM – 12:30 PM ET, Prostate Cancer: Advanced II (Moderated Poster Session, Room W307)

“The evolution of immunotherapy treatment continues to be a focus for the future of urology research, as evidenced in the PROVENGE data presented at AUA,” said Simon Hall. M.D., associate professor of urology at Mt. Sinai Hospital. “The biomarker potential of the anti-PSA immune response suggested in the IMPACT and ProACT data is exciting as it continues to reinforce the positive impact immunotherapies and PROVENGE may have on patients with mCRPC.”
