Progenics Reports Positive Preliminary Data from Ongoing Phase 1 Clinical Study of PSMA ADC
Progenics Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (Nasdaq: PGNX) today reported positive preliminary data from an ongoing phase 1 study of PSMA ADC, an antibody-drug conjugate designed to selectively deliver chemotherapy to cells that express prostate-specific membrane antigen. Antitumor activity, as reflected by clinical and/or laboratory measures, was observed in four of nine patients treated at the highest tested dose of 1.8 mg/kg. PSMA ADC was generally well tolerated in patients treated to date, and patient enrollment continues at a higher dose.
Findings were presented at the 2011 Genitourinary Cancers Symposium, a meeting co-sponsored by the American Society of Clinical Oncology, the American Society for Radiation Oncology and the Society of Urologic Oncology.
