"CDX-301 shows a favorable safety profile and effectively mobilizes early stem cells when used alone, and we expect even greater yields in the next cohort where we combine with Mozobil," said Thomas Davis, M.D., Executive Vice President and Chief Medical Officer of Celldex Therapeutics. "CDX-301 could potentially provide good engraftment, less graft-versus-host disease and mitigated side effects, which would be a breakthrough for these patients undergoing HSCT. We are also looking forward to receiving data from investigators who are using CDX-301 in other drug combination studies designed to assess its potential in immunotherapy for cancer and other indications."In addition, CDX-301 has shown impressive results in models of cancer, infectious diseases, inflammatory/autoimmune diseases and immune suppression. Celldex believes CDX-301 may hold significant opportunity for synergistic development in combination with other proprietary molecules in the Company's portfolio and in external development. CDX-301 is in clinical development for cancers in combination with vaccines, adjuvants, and other treatments that result in release of tumor antigens to enhance tumor immunogenicity. About Celldex Therapeutics, Inc. Celldex is developing targeted therapeutics to address devastating diseases for which available treatments are inadequate. Our pipeline is built from a proprietary portfolio of antibodies and immunomodulators used alone and in strategic combinations to create novel, disease-specific therapies that induce, enhance or suppress the body's immune response.
