Nektar Therapeutics Presents Preclinical Study Findings for Etirinotecan Pegol (NKTR-102) in Combination with PARP Inhibitor in BRCA1-Deficient Cancer Model

Nektar Therapeutics announced results of a study investigating the preclinical anti-tumor activity and tolerability of etirinotecan pegol (NKTR-102) in combination with the PARP inhibitor rucaparib in a BRCA1-deficient MX-1 breast tumor model. The preclinical study results demonstrated that all dose combinations of NKTR-102 and rucaparib were well-tolerated, synergistic, and led to 100% prolonged survival in this tumor model. These data were presented during the Symposium on Molecular Targets and Cancer Therapeutics in Barcelona, Spain, sponsored by the European Organisation for Research and Treatment of Cancer (EORTC), the National Cancer Institute (NCI) and the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR). NKTR-102 is the first long-acting topoisomerase I inhibitor with an extended half-life and a unique structure that is also designed to concentrate the drug in tumors. In patients, NKTR-102 leads to greatly prolonged plasma SN38 exposure compared to irinotecan (elimination half-life of 50 days compared to 2 days) yet peak SN38 concentrations are at least 5- to 10-times less, which may also result in a favorable tolerability profile. Study investigators initiated tumor xenografts with MX-1 human breast carcinomas maintained by serial subcutaneous transplantation in female athymic nude (Crl:NU(Ncr)-Foxn1nu), 8-week-old mice. On the day of tumor implant, each test mouse received a 1-mm(3) MX-1 fragment implanted subcutaneously in the right flank. Animals were randomized into treatment groups (n=10/grp) when their tumors reached 63-196 mm(3) and subsequently received either vehicle, NKTR-102, rucaparab, or combinations of NKTR-102 + rucaparib. Doses selected were known to provide clinically relevant exposure levels. Twice weekly, animals were weighed, and tumor volumes were measured until the endpoint (2,000 mm(3) or Day 88) was met. Efficacy was measured by tumor growth delay and regression response rate. NKTR-102 and rucaparib in combination exhibited marked synergy, demonstrated by durable complete responses, even at the lowest doses of both agents dosed in combination. The combination of NKTR-102 and rucaparib was tolerated at all dose levels. Doses used in this study provide exposures of NKTR-102 (SN38 trough) and rucaparib that are achievable clinically, underscoring the translational relevance of these Combination studies of NKTR-102 and rucaparib are ongoing in patient-derived xenograft models in collaboration with Professor Paul Haluska at Mayo Clinic and Clovis Oncology.

Revenue increased in the third quarter and first nine months of 2014 as compared to the same periods in 2013 primarily due to $105.0 million in milestones recognized in September 2014 upon the approval of MOVANTIK in the U.S., of which $70.0 million was received in November 2013. These increases in revenue in 2014 were partially offset by a $25.0 million milestone payment recognized in September 2013 upon the acceptance of the MOVANTIK EMA regulatory application.
