Clovis Oncology Inc. Research Report

On June 3, 2013, Clovis Oncology Inc. (Clovis Oncology) announced initial findings from the Phase I portion of its ongoing Phase I/II clinical study of CO-1686, the novel, oral, targeted covalent (irreversible) inhibitor of mutant forms of the epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) for the treatment of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) in patients with initial activating EGFR mutations as well as the dominant resistance mutation T790M. According to the Company, three of four evaluable T790M patients treated at 900mg BID (twice-daily) achieved partial responses. Further, it reported that CO-1686 appeared well-tolerated, with no evidence of wild-type EGFR inhibition. Dr. Lecia V. Sequist of the Massachusetts General Hospital Cancer Center and Associate Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School, Boston, said, "It has been exciting and quite hopeful to observe that patients are responding to CO-1686 and that the side effect profile has been so mild. A drug that works effectively for EGFR acquired resistance would be welcomed by the lung cancer community."

MannKind Corporation Research Report

On May 31, 2013, MannKind Corporation (MannKind) announced that all follow-up visits have been completed for patients enrolled in Study 171, a Phase 3 clinical study of AFREZZA (insulin human [rDNA origin]) inhalation powder, an investigational, ultra rapid-acting mealtime insulin therapy, administered using the Company's next-generation inhaler. Study 171 is an open-label study in patients with type 1 diabetes. After a run-in period, during which all patients were optimized on their basal insulin regimen, 518 subjects were randomized to one of three arms for mealtime insulin: a control arm, in which patients utilize rapid-acting insulin, or one of two AFREZZA arms, one for the MedTone inhaler and the other for the next-generation inhaler. After the mealtime insulin was titrated, there was a 12-week observation period on stable doses of the mealtime insulin to assess HbA1c levels, which is the primary outcome parameter. The Company expects to release data from this study in the summer of 2013.

Interim data from a Phase I trial, evaluating bavituximab plus paclitaxel therapy in patients with HER2-negative metastatic breast cancer (MBC), showed that 85% of patients were able to achieve objective tumor response, with 15% of patients achieving a complete response (CR) in accordance to Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors (RECIST). Further, the Company reported that in the second study, results from a randomized Phase II trial of bavituximab plus gemcitabine in patients with non-resectable Stage IV pancreatic cancer demonstrated more than a doubling of the overall response rate (ORR) and an improvement in overall survival (OS), including a delayed separation in the Kaplan-Maeier survival curve that is commonly seen in promising cancer immunotherapies.
