Angiochem Demonstrates Peptide Antibody Conjugate That Successfully Crosses the Blood Brain Barrier and Increases Survival in HER-2 Positive Brain Tumors
Dec 16 13
Angiochem announced that its peptide-antibody conjugate, ANG4043 successfully crosses the BBB, reduces tumor size and significantly increases survival in mice with intracranial HER2-positive brain tumors. These results underscore the potential for development of novel antitumor therapeutics for neuro-oncology indications. The data presentation revealed that the company's technology has been successfully applied to monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) for creation of brain-penetrant antibody conjugates of anti-Human Epidermal Growth Factor Receptor 2 (HER2). Angiochem researchers described the ANG4043 preclinical results, including: In vivo, in mice that were implanted intracranially with HER2+ human breast tumor cells (BT-474), it was observed: ANG4043 crosses the BBB and reaches the tumor using near-infrared imaging, where a strong signal is observed in brain following IV administration of fluorescent ANG4043, but not of fluorescent anti-HER2. Reduction in tumor size correlating with increased survival. In vitro, ANG4043 binding affinity for HER2 receptor and anti-proliferative properties were similar to the native, unconjugated mAb.

Angiochem Announces Results from Phase II Breast Cancer Study
Oct 30 13
Angiochem has announced complete analysis results from a Phase II clinical study with ANG1005, a novel paclitaxel-peptide drug conjugate, in breast cancer patients with brain metastasis. Angiochem presented the Phase II ITT analysis with ANG1005 in 80 HER2-positive and HER2-negative breast cancer. patients with brain metastases. Two doses, 650mg/m2 (n=13) and 550mg/m2 (n=67), were evaluated for intracranial anti-tumor responses including response rate, progression-free survival (PFS) and overall survival (OS) as well as safety and tolerability. In the study, ANG1005 was generally safe and well-tolerated, and demonstrated an adverse event profile consistent with conventional taxane therapy in both HER2-positive and HER2-negative cohorts at both dose levels studied. In addition, patients in both the HER2-positive and HER2-negative populations experienced anti-tumor responses including up to 14 patients with intracranial partial responses (PR), 35 patients with stable disease(SD) and six months overall survival in up to 85%. ANG1005 was generally safe and well-tolerated with taxane-related adverse events including neutropenia, fatigue, peripheral neuropathy and mucosal inflammation. HER2-positive patients (n=36) achieved PR's (9, 25%) and SD (18, 50%) thereby demonstrating disease control in 75% of those patients. In addition, at the dose level of 550 mg/m2, three month PFS was 71% with a median PFS of 128 days and OS at six months of 82%. Her2-negative patients (n=44) achieved PR's (5, 11%) and SD (17, 32%) thereby demonstrating disease control in 50% of those patients. In addition, at the dose level of 550 mg/m2, three months of PFS was 35% with a median PFS of 84 days and OS at six months of 60%. Based on these results, Angiochem will advance ANG1005 into further clinical development including a Phase II clinical study in patients with recurrent high grade gliomas which began enrolling in October 2013 and a Phase II clinical study in HER2-positive breast cancer patients with brain metastases which will begin enrolling in the first quarter of 2014.
