arGEN-X to present results of Phase 1 study of ARGX-110, a novel anti-CD70 antibody, in patients with advanced cancer at ASCO

May 29, 2014

Breda, The Netherlands / Ghent, Belgium – arGEN-X will present full results from the dose-escalation part of a Phase 1 study of ARGX-110, a novel anti-CD70 antibody, in patients with advanced hematological and solid tumors at the 50th annual meeting of the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO; 30 May-3 June, 2014, Chicago, IL, USA).

arGEN-X reported in December 2013 that this study met its translational development goals: all pre-specified biological activity measures (e.g. target saturation, effector functions, immune-modulation) were met. The study also showed that ARGX-110 has a favorable safety profile and identified a dose that was advanced into a larger safety study in patients with a range of hematological and solid tumors. Patient recruitment into this expanded study began in January 2014 in Europe (ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier: NCT01813539) and top-line results are expected in 2015.
