Novartis Accelerates Cancer Immunotherapy Efforts with Aduro Biotech Alliance and Launch of New Immuno-Oncology Research Group

Novartis announced that it is stepping up its efforts to harness the body's immune system to combat cancer. The company has entered into a major multiyear alliance with Aduro Biotech that is focused on the discovery and development of next generation cancer immunotherapies targeting the STING (Stimulator of Interferon Genes) pathway and launched a new immuno-oncology research group led by renowned cancer vaccine expert Glenn Dranoff, MD. The addition of STING agonists adds firepower to Novartis' diverse portfolio of immunotherapies that includes chimeric antigen receptor T-cell (CART) technology and novel checkpoint inhibitors. Currently the CART program, CTL019, is in phase 2 clinical trials and checkpoint inhibitors targeting PD1, LAG3, and TIM3 are expected to enter the clinic in mid-2015. Under the terms of the agreement with Aduro, Novartis will make an upfront payment of $200 million to Aduro and will make an initial equity investment in the company for $25 million, with a commitment for another $25 million equity investment at a future date. Aduro will lead commercialization activities and book sales in the US, with Novartis leading commercialization and recognizing sales in the rest of the world. The companies will share in profits in the US, Japan and major European countries. Novartis will pay Aduro a royalty for sales in the rest of the world.

Novartis Announces Encouraging Two-Year Data from Psoriasis Study

Novartis has announced new two-year data from the extension study of the pivotal Phase III FIXTURE and ERASURE trials demonstrating sustained efficacy with Cosentyx with an acceptable safety profile for the treatment of psoriasis patients. Cosentyx is the first and only interleukin-17A (IL-17A) antagonist approved to treat adult moderate-to-severe plaque psoriasis patients. In this extension of the FIXTURE and ERASURE studies, 995 patients who achieved Psoriasis Area Severity Index (PASI) 75 response after a year of therapy (Week 52) received either Cosentyx 300 mg, Cosentyx 150 mg or placebo for an additional year (Week 104). After two full years of therapy, 7 out of 10 (70.6%) patients treated with Cosentyx 300 mg had clear to almost clear skin (PASI 90); 4 out of 10 (43.9%) had clear skin (PASI 100) and almost 9 out of 10 (88.2%) patients maintained their PASI 75 response at Week 104. For patients treated with Cosentyx 150 mg, 44.6% had clear or almost clear skin (PASI 90); 23.5% had clear skin (PASI 100) and 75.5% maintained their PASI 75 response at Week 104. PASI assesses treatment efficacy by measuring the reduction in redness, scaling and thickness of psoriatic plaques and the extent of involvement in each region of the body.
