ImmunoGen Clinical Results of IMGN901
ImmunoGen, Inc. (NASDAQ: IMGN), a biotechnology company that develops anticancer therapeutics using its Targeted Antibody Payload (TAP) technology and antibody expertise, today announced the presentation of new clinical data with the Company's targeted anticancer compound, IMGN901. The data were from a Phase I clinical study assessing IMGN901 used in combination with lenalidomide (Revlimid®) and dexamethasone to treat patients with CD56-expressing relapsed or relapsed/refractory multiple myeloma. The data were reported in an oral presentation (abstract #728) at the 54th American Society of Hematology (ASH) Annual Meeting and Exposition in Atlanta, Georgia.
“The level and duration of the responses to the study regimen confirm the activity seen with IMGN901 in earlier trials – where it was evaluated as single-agent therapy – and support the further development of IMGN901 as a treatment for CD56-expressing cancers,” commented James O'Leary, MD, Vice President and Chief Medical Officer.
