Celsion Corporation Announces an Update on Clinical Development Plans for GEN-1

Celsion Corporation announced an update on its clinical development plans for GEN-1, the company's DNA-based immunotherapy for the localized treatment of cancer, in ovarian cancer. GEN-1 has demonstrated promising clinical activity and tolerability in platinum-resistant and recurrent ovarian cancer patients, as well as synergistic anti-cancer effects in combination with bevacizumab (Avastin®) in preclinical models. The company announced plans to expand its ovarian cancer development program to include a Phase 1 dose escalating trial evaluating GEN-1 in combination with Avastin® and Doxil® in platinum-resistant ovarian cancer patients, expected to begin in the second half of 2015. As previously reported, Celsion intends to commence a Phase 1b dose escalating trial in newly diagnosed ovarian cancer patients in the third quarter of this year. The new combination study in platinum-resistant ovarian cancer is supported by two preclinical studies demonstrating that the combination of GEN-1 with Avastin® may result in significant clinical benefit with a favorable safety profile, as well as a prior Phase 1b trial of GEN-1 plus Doxil® in platinum resistant ovarian cancer patients. Specifically: In two preclinical studies using an animal model of disseminated ovarian cancer, GEN-1 in combination with Avastin® led to a significant reduction in tumor burden and disease progression. The effectiveness of the combined treatment was seen when GEN-1 was combined with various dose levels of Avastin® (low-medium-high). Additionally, it was demonstrated that GEN-1 treatment alone resulted in anti-tumor activity that was as good as or better than Avastin® treatment alone. The preclinical studies indicated that no obvious overt toxicities were associated with the combined treatments. The preclinical data are also consistent with the mechanism of action for GEN-1, which exhibits certain anti-angiogenic properties and suggests that combining GEN-1 with lower doses of Avastin® may enhance efficacy and help reduce the known toxicities associated with this anti-VEGF drug. The distinct biological activities of GEN-1 (immune stimulation) and Avastin® (inhibition of tumor blood vessel formation) makes a sound scientific rationale for this combination approach. Additionally, the anti-angiogenic activity of GEN-1 mediated through up regulation of the interferon gamma (IFN-g) pathway may help to explain the remarkable synergy between GEN-1 and Avastin® and potentially addresses the VEGF escape mechanisms associated with resistance to Avastin® therapy. In a 16-patient Phase 1b study of GEN-1 in combination study in platinum-resistant ovarian cancer, there were no overlapping toxicities between GEN-1 and pegylated doxorubicin (Doxil®). Biological activity and clinical efficacy results, including disease control rates, translational data and survival rates, have been submitted for presentation at the American Society of Clinical Oncologist (ASCO) annual meeting. Celsion intends to conduct additional preclinical studies to support an Investigational New Drug filing with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for the planned Phase 1 combination study. The study will be designed to optimize the dosing regimen for GEN-1 in combination with Avastin® and is expected to enroll approximately 12 to 18 patients.

Celsion Announces Positive Interim Data from its Phase 2 DIGNITY Study in Breast Cancer

Celsion Corp. announced positive interim data from its ongoing open-label Phase 2 DIGNITY Trial of ThermoDox in recurrent chest wall (RCW) breast cancer. The trial is designed to enroll up to 20 patients at several U.S. clinical sites and is evaluating ThermoDox in combination with mild hyperthermia. Of the 16 patients enrolled and treated, 12 were eligible for evaluation of efficacy. Based on data available to date, 67% of patients experienced a clinical benefit of their highly refractory disease with a local response rate of 58% observed in the 12 evaluable patients, notably 5 complete responses (CR), 2 partial responses (PR) and 1 patient with stable disease (SD). The company remains on track to complete enrollment in the study in the third quarter of 2015. These data are consistent with the previously reported Phase 1 data for ThermoDox plus hyperthermia in RCW breast cancer, including combined clinical data from the Company's Phase 1 DIGNITY Study and a Duke University sponsored Phase 1 trial of ThermoDox. The two similarly designed studies enrolled patients with highly resistant tumors found on the chest wall and who had progressed on previous therapies. There were 29 patients treated in the two trials, representing 11 patients in the DIGNITY study and 18 patients in the Duke study. Of the 29 patients treated, 23 were eligible for evaluation of efficacy. A local response rate of over 60% was reported in 14 of the 23 evaluable patients, with 5 complete responses and 9 partial responses.
