Celldex Posts Positive 3-Year Survival Data from Phase 2 Rindopepimut Program
Celldex Therapeutics, Inc. (NASDAQ: CLDX) announced today the presentation of three-year survival data from the Phase 2 rindopepimut clinical program in EGFRvIII-positive glioblastoma—a more aggressive form of glioblastoma typically associated with reduced long-term survival in comparison to the glioblastoma population as a whole. Across three Phase 2 studies of rindopepimut, survival data remains consistent and suggests a substantial and continuing survival benefit in comparison to independent control datasets (see chart below) at the median and at three years. In the multi-center Phase 2 ACT III study, the median overall survival is 24.6 months from diagnosis (21.8 months from study entry) and overall survival is 26% at three years. In the Phase 2 ACT II study, the median overall survival is 24.4 months from diagnosis (20.5 months from study entry) and overall survival is 23% at three years. In the Phase 2 ACTIVATE study, the median overall survival is 24.6 months from diagnosis (20.4 months from study entry) and overall survival is 33% at three years.

^1Controls are closely matched to rindopepimut patient criteria including gross total resection of patient tumor and ~3 months without disease progression at time of study entry; ^2In order to provide comparable timeframes across datasets, data have been estimated assuming study entry at three months from diagnosis.
