year as its primary endpoint, and overall survival, safety, and immunological
correlative analysis as the secondary endpoints. The data showed that one year
disease-free survival was 62%, while overall survival was 86%. Specifically,
the data showed median overall survival was 42 months in patients with
elevated levels of anti-mesothelin antibodies versus 20 months in patients
without elevated levels. Moreover, the subset of patients that showed
increases in two or more of the aforementioned biomarkers had median overall
survival greater than 42 months (median overall survival not reached for this
subset of patients). The Full Research Report on NewLink Genetics Corp. -
