Five Prime Therapeutics, Inc. Initiates Dosing in its Phase 1 Clinical Trial of FPA144

Five Prime Therapeutics, Inc. announced that the company has initiated dosing in its Phase 1 clinical trial of FPA144, an anti-FGF receptor 2b antibody. FPA144 is designed to inhibit tumor growth by preventing the binding of certain fibroblast growth factors to FGF receptor 2b (FGFR2b) and directly kill tumor cells in a process called antibody-dependent cell-mediated cytotoxicity (ADCC). FPA144 is being developed initially as a monotherapy for refractory gastric cancer, a significant unmet medical need that may warrant an accelerated development and registration path. The Phase 1 clinical trial of FPA144 has two parts. The first part of the trial will enroll unselected patients with solid tumors to explore the safety of the drug and identify a dose for expansion to test in patients with gastric cancer. During the second part of the trial, Five Prime will enroll gastric cancer patients with FGFR2b protein overexpression or FGFR2 gene amplification in their tumors as identified through proprietary molecular diagnostic assays. Important endpoints of the trial include safety and overall response rate.

Bristol-Myers Squibb Company Enters into Clinical Collaboration Agreement with Five Prime Therapeutics, Inc

Bristol-Myers Squibb Company (BMS), and Five Prime Therapeutics, Inc. have entered into a clinical collaboration agreement to evaluate the safety, tolerability and preliminary efficacy of combination of Opdivo, BMS's investigational PD-1 immune checkpoint inhibitor, with FPA008, Five Prime's monoclonal antibody that inhibits colony stimulating factor-1 receptor, or CSF1R, in six tumor types. The phase Ia/Ib study will evaluate the combination of Opdivo and FPA008 as a potential treatment option for patients with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), melanoma, head and neck cancer, pancreatic cancer, colorectal cancer and malignant glioma. Opdivo and FPA008 are part of a new class of cancer treatments known as immunotherapies that are designed to harness the body's own immune system to fight cancer. Opdivo is approved in Japan for the treatment of patients with unresectable melanoma, and is being developed in multiple tumor types in more than 50 clinical trials.
