Transgene, Jennerex Cancer Therapy Improves Survival in Study

Transgene SA and Jennerex Biotherapeutics said the high doses of their JX594/TG6006 therapy improved overall survival in advanced liver cancer patients, citing a mid-stage study of 30 patients.

Patients receiving the treatment at the higher dose lived a medial of 13.8 months, compared with 6.7 months for those who received the lower dose, Strasbourg, France-based Transgene and San Francisco-based Jennerex said in an e-mailed statement today. The findings are being presented at the American Association for the Study of Liver Diseases meeting in San Francisco today.

JX594/TG6006 is a virus that is engineered to target and destroy cancerous cells, according to the companies.
