Morphotek, Inc. Announces Initiation Of Farletuzumab Study in Patients With First-Relapsed, Platinum-Sensitive Ovarian Cancer With Low Levels of The Immunosuppressive CA125 Tumor Antigen
Mar 30 15
Morphotek Inc. announced that it has enrolled the first patient in a randomized, double-blind study of farletuzumab in first-relapsed, platinum-sensitive ovarian cancer with low levels of the immunosuppressive CA125 tumor antigen. The study will evaluate the efficacy and safety of farletuzumab, a monoclonal antibody that specifically binds to folate receptor-alpha (FRA), when combined with standard chemotherapy regimens carboplatin plus paclitaxel or carboplatin plus pegylated liposomal doxorubicin (PLD). The 003-011 follow-on study design is based on the results of pre-specified subgroup analyses of the completed 1,100 patient FAR-131 Phase 3 study. It is a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial to determine if farletuzumab improves the progression-free survival of platinum-sensitive ovarian cancer patients with low levels of CA125 using a modified farletuzumab dosing regimen to increase farletuzumab exposure. All patients will receive one of the initial standard-of-care chemotherapy regimens for six cycles combined with either farletuzumab or placebo, followed by maintenance therapy with the single assigned test article. Secondary objectives include evaluating overall survival, response rate, and safety. Morphotek expects to enroll 210 patients in this study, which will be conducted in sites across the United States, Japan, and Europe. Farletuzumab is a monoclonal antibody (mAb) that binds to the folate receptor-alpha (FRA), a folate binding protein that is expressed on ovarian and several other epithelial cancer cells. Monoclonal antibodies, a type of immunotherapy used to treat cancer, are laboratory-generated versions of immune system proteins and can be designed to attack a specific part of a cancer cell. Immunotherapy drugs offer a method of treatment separate from chemotherapy.
