- Completed enrollment of 207 patients a month ahead of schedule in the Phase 2 YOSEMITE trial of demcizumab (anti-DLL4, OMP-21M18) in combination with Abraxane ® (paclitaxel protein-bound particles for injectable suspension) (albumin bound) plus gemcitabine in first-line metastatic pancreatic cancer. Topline results are expected in the first half of 2017, enabling a potential opt-in by Celgene Corporation (Celgene).
- Completed enrollment of 145 previously untreated patients with extensive-stage small cell lung cancer (SCLC) three months ahead of schedule in the Phase 2 PINNACLE clinical trial of tarextumab (anti-Notch2/3, OMP-59R5) in combination with etoposide and platinum-based chemotherapy. Topline are results expected in the first half of 2017, enabling a potential opt in by GlaxoSmithKline (GSK).
- Presented interim data from the Phase 1b clinical trials of vantictumab (anti-Fzd, OMP-18R5) and ipafricept (FZD8-Fc, OMP-54F28) in pancreatic cancer at the European Society of Medical Oncology (ESMO) 2016 Congress. OncoMed expects to submit data packages for both vantictumab and ipafricept to Bayer Pharma AG (Bayer) for opt-in consideration during the first half of 2017.
GSK has notified OncoMed of its decision to focus its current collaboration with OncoMed on tarextumab in SCLC based on the PINNACLE study and to terminate its option on the brontictuzumab (anti-Notch1, OMP-52M51) program. As a result of the termination, OncoMed will retain the worldwide rights to develop brontictuzumab.OncoMed will continue its ongoing efforts with investigators to plan the conduct of a Phase 1b clinical trial of brontictuzumab in combination with trifluridine and tipiracil tablets (Lonsurf ®) in third-line colorectal cancer. The trial includes enrollment of biomarker-positive patients whose tumors express the activated form of Notch1. OncoMed has previously presented Phase 1 data that suggest brontictuzumab has single-agent activity in patients with tumors that are positive for the Notch1 biomarker. The prevalence of activated Notch1 in colorectal cancer is expected to be about 50 percent. Enrollment in the Phase 1b study is expected to commence in late 2016 or early 2017. 2016 Upcoming Milestones
- Present first-in-human data for anti-DLL4/VEGF (OMP-305B83) and anti-RSPO3 (OMP-131R10) from ongoing Phase 1 trials at the EORTC-NCI-AACR Molecular Targets and Cancer Therapeutics Symposium being held in Munich, Germany November 29-December 2, 2016.
- File an Investigational New Drug (IND) application with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) before year-end for one of two immuno-oncology therapeutic candidates: IO#2, partnered with Celgene, or GITRL-Fc, a wholly owned OncoMed asset. A second IND application is expected to follow in the first half of 2017.
