Immune Design Releases New PFS, OS and TME Data from Trials of Three Immuno-Oncology Product Candidates

Immune Design announced updated results from clinical trials of three immuno-oncology product candidates demonstrating promising and potentially clinically meaningful anti-tumor immune responses for Immune Design’s lead products. LV305 & CMB305: Specific Antigen Approach Targeting NY-ESO-1 Positive Tumors – Emerging Profile of Prolonged Survival Benefit: LV305 Phase 1 single agent trial completed in 24 patients with advanced or metastatic sarcoma cancers expressing NY-ESO-1 (ASCO abstract #3093); Median overall survival (OS) has not been reached. One-year survival is 81%; Median progression free survival (PFS) is 4.6 months; 14 patients (58%) had clinical benefit: One patient (4%) had a late-onset partial response and 13 patients (54%) had stable disease; 7/11 patients with pretreatment progressive disease (PD) had SD or PR following LV305; and Safety profile is very favorable, with only Grade 1/2 adverse effects (AEs). CMB305 Phase 1 single agent trial ongoing in patients with NY-ESO-1 positive soft tissue sarcomas (preliminary analysis of first 14 patients) - Median OS has not been reached. 93% (13/14 patients) survival to date. Median PFS is 5.5 months; Best response to date is stable disease (10/14, 71%); and Safety profile is very favorable, with only Grade 1/2 AE. G100: Intratumoral Immune Activation Approach: Transforming ‘cold’ tumors to ‘hot’ tumors G100 single agent and in combination with radiation in patients with Merkel cell carcinoma (ASCO Abstract #3021) - In final results from 10 patients, G100 produced a 50% overall response rate (ORR) per protocol, including a pathologic complete response (CR) following single agent G100 alone; Four patients remain relapse-free in long-term follow up (range 13+ to 27.5+ months); Analysis of the tumor microenvironment (TME) in G100-treated patients demonstrates the transformation of a ‘cold’ to a ‘hot’ tumor: increase of innate immune molecules that favor immune cell chemotaxis; increased NK cells and M1 macrophage markers; and dendritic cell antigen presentation. In addition, trafficking of CD4 and CD8 T cells from the stroma into the tumor bed was observed; These changes in the TME were most prominent in the G100 responding patients; and No treatment-related AEs where observed; all AEs were grade 1/2.
