Immunomedics Inc. Research Report

On November 8, 2013, Immunomedics Inc. (Immunomedics) announced that some patients who had failed prior therapy with irinotecan or camptosar, both topoisomerase-1 inhibitors, responded to IMMU-132, the Company's lead antibody-drug conjugate (ADC) in clinical development for the treatment of patients with solid cancers. According to the release, Dr. Allyson Ocean of Weill-Cornell Medical College, New York, was invited by the Program Chairs to present the updated results at the Symposium, which is jointly organized by the Mount Sinai School of Medicine and the Chemotherapy Foundation, in collaboration with The Tisch Cancer Institute. The Company stated that out of the 18 patients who responded to IMMU-132, 8 had failed prior therapies with irinotecan or camptosar. Immunomedics added that since irinotecan is the parent of SN-38, the Company's drug of choice in IMMU-132, it postulates that the increased amount of SN-38 delivered to the tumors by IMMU-132 overcomes the tumor's resistance to this class of drugs. Immunomedics informed that the study was supported in part by Award Number R43CA171388 from the National Cancer Institute.
