GENMAB AMENDS OFATUMUMAB PIVOTAL STUDY IN NHL TO SINGLE ARM STUDY


Copenhagen, Denmark; September 27, 2007 – Genmab A/S (OMX: GEN) announced today it has amended the design of an ongoing pivotal study of ofatumumab (HuMax-CD20®) in rituximab refractory follicular non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma (NHL) to a single arm trial that will now include approximately 81 patients. All patients will receive one infusion of 300 mg of ofatumumab followed by 7 weekly infusions of 1000 mg of ofatumumab.



The original study design included 162 patients, who would have received one infusion of 300 mg of ofatumumab followed by 7 weekly infusions of either 500 or 1000 mg of ofatumumab. This is the first study of ofatumumab dedicated to patients with rituximab-refractory follicular lymphoma.



In order to establish that ofatumumab is efficacious in this refractory setting, reducing the number of patients in the trial will help to expedite a result. The lower dose (500 mg) was dropped to reduce the total number of patients to be accrued and ensure that these very sick patients receive the maximum dose. Data from patients who were already treated in the 500 mg dose group will be analyzed for safety and included in the secondary efficacy analysis, but will not be included in the primary efficacy analysis.



“This change to the pivotal study design will allow us to treat all the refractory patients with a higher dose level of ofatumumab, allowing the maximum opportunity for response and longer lasting effects in this patient population,” said Lisa N. Drakeman, Ph.D., Chief Executive Officer of Genmab.

Ofatumumab is an investigational drug being developed under a co-development and commercialization agreement between Genmab and GlaxoSmithKline. It is not yet approved in any market.

Misschien dat de reden voor koersstijging is, dat is de deal van het Zwitserse Novartis en Morphosys.
Morphosys doet zelfde type R&D als Genmab.
____________________________________________________
Forbes: Novartis Builds Its Antibodies
Vidya Ram, 12.03.07, 1:00 PM ET LONDON -

Biotechnology companies usually have to renew contracts every two to three years. Therefore it's not surprising that shares in German antibody research company MorphoSys shot up after Swiss drug maker Novartis announced a 10-year contract with the company worth over $1 billion.

Shares in MorphoSys soared by 10.41 euros ($15.26), or 25.3%, to 51.60 euros ($75.63) in midday trading in Frankfurt on Monday, reacting to Novartis' announcement over the weekend. Novartis shares traded down 0.8%, at 63.85 Swiss francs ($56.57) in Zurich.

"This is a transforming deal for MorphoSys," said MorphoSys Chief Executive Simon Moroney. "This alliance heralds a new chapter in our corporate development as it offers us the perfect construct to increase significantly the value of our proprietary drug development pipeline while simultaneously maximizing our financial interest in partnered programs."

The deal will make MorphoSys into Novartis' main collaborator for the discovery and development of therapeutic antibodies for a wide range of diseases, giving Novartis almost exclusive access to its technology, including to its library of more than 10 billion human antibodies. Novartis retains an option to prolong the contract for an additional two years.

Market Report: Glaxo targets Danish group to save its bacon
By Nick Clark
Published: 06 December 2007

The pharma giant GlaxoSmithKline could be back on the acquisition trail as talk circulated that it was preparing a bid for a Danish biotechnology group. This came on a day that the market soared more than 2 per cent, as investors bet on the Bank of England cutting interest rates today.

Rumours did the rounds in the afternoon that Glaxo was set to target Denmark's Genmab, which has a market capitalisation of ¿2.1bn. The companies have previously had licensing and development deals together, but talk yesterday was of a full takeover. Glaxo closed up 16p at 1,304p. Glaxo has had tough times recently, with sales hit by the scare over the diabetes drug Avandia.

GENMAB’S HUMAX-CD38 ENTERS PHASE I/II CLINICAL TRIAL FOR MULTIPLE MYELOMA

Copenhagen, Denmark; December 7, 2007 - Genmab A/S (OMX: GEN) announced today it has initiated a Phase I/II safety and dose finding study of HuMax-CD38™ for the treatment of multiple myeloma (MM). The study will include a maximum of 122 patients with MM who are relapsed or refractory to at least two different prior treatments and are without further established treatment options.

"HuMax-CD38 is the ninth Genmab antibody to enter clinical development," said Lisa N. Drakeman, Ph.D., Chief Executive Officer of Genmab. "We are looking forward to the results of this safety study and hope that HuMax-CD38 may one day offer a new potential treatment for multiple myeloma patients who have run out of treatment options."

About the trial
This open label dose escalation safety study will consist of two parts. In Part 1, 26 to 62 patients will be enrolled depending on the number of dose levels reached during escalation. Patients in Part 1 will be divided into cohorts at various doses of HuMax-CD38, with each patient receiving 7 infusions. The first infusion will be followed by a 3 week period of safety monitoring with the following 6 doses to be given at weekly intervals.

In Part 2, 60 patients will be enrolled with 20 patients in each of three dose levels. The highest dose in Part 2 will be the highest safe dose in Part 1 and two dose levels below. Patients in Part 2 will receive 6 infusions of HuMax-CD38 at weekly intervals.

In each part of the study, patients will attend 12 follow up visits at 2 to 4 week intervals to assess safety and efficacy and will be followed every 12 weeks thereafter until disease progression, initiation of alternative treatment for MM or death for a maximum total of 2 years from study start.

About HuMax-CD38
HuMax-CD38 is a fully human antibody that targets the CD38 molecule which is highly expressed on the surface of multiple myeloma tumor cells. In preclinical studies, HuMax-CD38 was more effective in triggering the immune system killing mechanisms Antibody-Dependent Cellular Cytotoxicity (ADCC) and Complement Dependent Cytotoxicity (CDC), than other human CD38 antibodies when tested on multiple myeloma tumors. HuMax-CD38 also potently killed tumor cells from a patient with a CD38/138 positive plasma cell leukemia which was refractory to chemotherapy at the time of analysis. Furthermore, treatment with HuMax-CD38 slowed tumor growth in both preventive and therapeutic settings in SCID mice in animal models. HuMax-CD38 is the first antibody known to block the ecto-enzymatic activity of CD38.

About Multiple Myeloma
Multiple Myeloma is a plasma cell disorder, characterized by uncontrolled and progressive proliferation of a plasma cell clone. The proliferation of myeloma cells causes displacement of the normal bone marrow. MM accounts for approximately 1% of all malignancies and 10% of all hematologic malignancies with a higher frequency in African Americans where MM accounts for 20% of all hematologic malignancies. In the US, approximately 11,000 deaths each year are related to MM and the estimated number of new cases is rising. At present, no cure is available, and the mean survival is approximately 3-5 years.

FOURTH GENMAB ANTIBODY DEVELOPED UNDER ROCHE COLLABORATION TO ENTER CLINIC

Copenhagen, Denmark; December 11, 2007 – Genmab A/S (OMX: GEN) announced today that an Investigational New Drug application (IND) for a Genmab antibody developed under the company’s collaboration with Roche has been filed with the FDA by Roche. Genentech and Roche are collaborating on development of the antibody which selectively blocks the interaction of the OX40 ligand and its receptor. The companies are evaluating the antibody for the treatment of asthma. Genmab will receive a milestone payment from Roche which does not influence Genmab's financial guidance for 2007.

In pre-clinical data published in a recent article and commentary in The Journal of Clinical Investigation, treatment with the human OX40L blocking antibody led to significant therapeutic effects in a nonhuman primate model of allergic inflammation. The mechanisms of action of the human antibody include effective blockade of OX40L binding to its receptor, and depletion of cells expressing OX40L. Depletion of OX40L-expressing cells was shown to depend on interaction of immune effector cells with the therapeutic antibody. The observed in vivo efficacy of the OX40L-specific antibody may also involve restoration of peripheral tolerance mechanisms. Breaking of tolerance promotes development of autoimmune and allergic diseases.

Under the agreement with Roche, Genmab utilizes its broad antibody expertise and development capabilities to create human antibodies to a broad range of disease targets identified by Roche. Genmab receives milestone and royalty payments based on successful products. In certain circumstances, Genmab may obtain rights to develop products based on disease targets identified by Roche.

“Four of the antibodies developed by Genmab under our collaboration with Roche have now entered the clinic. We believe this achievement is a testament to the skill of Genmab’s pre-clinical development team who work carefully to select the best product candidates and Roche’s dedicated focus on progressing them to market,” said Lisa N. Drakeman, Ph.D., Chief Executive Officer of Genmab.

GENMAB ANNOUNCES DETAILS OF PLANNED OFATUMUMAB PHASE II STUDY IN MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS

Copenhagen, Denmark; December 13, 2007 – Genmab A/S (OMX: GEN) announced today details of a planned Phase II study of ofatumumab (HuMax-CD20®) for the treatment of relapsing remitting multiple sclerosis (RRMS). Approximately 324 patients will be enrolled in the study which will be conducted under Genmab’s collaboration with GlaxoSmithKline (GSK). The study is expected to begin in the first quarter of 2008.

Ofatumumab is an investigational, fully human, next generation monoclonal antibody that targets a unique epitope of the CD20 receptor on the surface of B-cells. Other anti-CD20 antibodies currently available or in development bind to a different epitope on the CD20 receptor. Ofatumumab is being developed under a co-development and commercialization agreement between Genmab and GlaxoSmithKline.

“Multiple sclerosis is a debilitating disease for which there are currently few treatments,” said Lisa N. Drakeman, Ph.D., Chief Executive Officer of Genmab. “We hope our fully human antibody, ofatumumab, may offer another potential treatment option for patients suffering from this incapacitating disease.”



About the trial

The double blind randomized trial will consist of two parts. Part A will include approximately 36 patients in one of three increasing dose cohorts (100 mg, 300 mg or 700 mg of ofatumumab) randomized to receive ofatumumab or placebo. An independent data monitoring committee (IDMC) will evaluate the safety of each sequential cohort prior to progression to the next cohort. When all patients in Part A have had their week 4 MRI scan, the IDMC will evaluate the data before Part B of the study begins.



Part B will consist of a 48 week treatment period of approximately 288 patients. Patients will be randomized to treatment with 100 mg, 300 mg, or 700 mg of ofatumumab or placebo. After week 24, patients on an active dose will receive re-treatment with the same dose of ofatumumab or placebo. Patients on placebo will receive ofatumumab at the highest tolerated dose from Part A.



The objective of the study is to determine the safety and tolerability of three doses of ofatumumab and the dose response of ofatumumab on disease activity on MRI in patients with RRMS. The primary endpoints are safety and cumulative number of new Gd-enhanced lesions from week 8 to week 24.



About Relapsing Remitting Multiple Sclerosis

Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is an inflammatory disease of the central nervous system. MS is twice as common in females as in males, occurs with a peak incidence at the age of 35 years and incidence varies widely in different populations and ethnic groups. The etiology of MS remains unknown, but the geographic variation points towards possible environmental and genetic factors. The most common form of MS is relapsing remitting MS characterized by unpredictable recurrent attacks where the symptoms usually evolve over days and are followed by either complete, partial or no neurological recovery. No progression of neurological impairment is experienced between attacks.

GENMAB INITIATES OFATUMUMAB PHASE II STUDY IN DIFFUSE LARGE B-CELL LYMPHOMA

Copenhagen, Denmark; December 13, 2007 – Genmab A/S (OMX:GEN) announced today that study centers have been initiated and are ready to enroll patients in a Phase II study of ofatumumab (HuMax-CD20®) to evaluate treatment of relapsed Diffuse Large B-Cell Lymphoma (DLBCL) in patients ineligible for or relapsed following a stem cell transplant. Approximately 75 patients will be enrolled in the study which is being conducted under Genmab’s collaboration with GlaxoSmithKline (GSK). Genmab will receive a milestone payment of approximately DKK 87.2 million from GSK upon treatment of the first patient in the study, expected in the near future.

Ofatumumab is an investigational, fully human, next generation monoclonal antibody that targets a unique epitope of the CD20 receptor on the surface of B-cells. Other anti-CD20 antibodies currently available or in development bind to a different epitope on the CD20 receptor. Ofatumumab is being developed under a co-development and commercialization agreement between Genmab and GlaxoSmithKline.

“We have now expanded the ofatumumab clinical development program into a fourth disease area,” said Lisa N. Drakeman, Ph.D., Chief Executive Officer of Genmab. “We hope ofatumumab will offer a new and effective treatment option for patients suffering from DLBCL.”

About the trial

In this open label trial, each patient will receive 8 weekly infusions of ofatumumab. The first infusion will be 300 mg and the 7 subsequent infusions will be 1000 mg of ofatumumab. Disease status will be assessed 4 weeks after the last infusion and then every 3 months for a total of 24 months after treatment start according to the “Revised response criteria for malignant lymphoma.” After 24 months, patients will be followed until initiation of alternative DLBCL treatment or month 60. The objective of the study is to determine the efficacy of ofatumumab in patients with relapsed DLBCL ineligible for transplant or relapsed after transplant. The primary endpoint of the study is objective response over a 6 month period from start of treatment.

About Diffuse Large B-Cell Lymphoma
Diffuse Large B-Cell Lymphoma is a cancer of the B-lymphocytes and represents 30% of non-Hodgkin’s lymphomas in adults and is the most common lymphoid malignancy in the western world.

GENMAB ANNOUNCES HUMAX-CD32B PRE-CLINICAL PROGRAM

Copenhagen, Denmark; January 4, 2008 – Genmab A/S (OMX: GEN) announced today a new pre-clinical antibody program called HuMax-CD32b™. This fully human IgG1,k antibody targets the CD32b receptor found on immune cells and hematological tumors. HuMax-CD32b may have therapeutic potential in the treatment of B-cell chronic lymphocytic leukemia, small lymphocytic lymphoma, Burkitt’s lymphoma, follicular lymphoma and diffuse large B-cell lymphoma.

The lead candidate for HuMax-CD32b was selected from a panel of over 60 antibodies based on its excellent selectivity and binding ability for the CD32b target and potent triggering of the immune system killing mechanism antibody-dependent cellular cytotoxicity (ADCC). The antibody was highly effective in suppressing tumor growth in in vivo mouse tumor models in which tumor growth was monitored by highly sensitive bioluminescence imaging.

In animal models, HuMax-CD32b has been shown to induce impressive anti-tumor responses. The CD32b receptor has an inhibitory role on immune cells and blockade of CD32b has been documented to strongly potentiate the therapeutic effects of other anti-tumor antibodies. An antibody targeting CD32b may thus be attractive for combination therapy with other antibodies.

“We believe HuMax-CD32b has great potential as a cancer therapeutic, both because of its impressive anti-tumor activity, and the potential for combination with other therapeutic antibodies, such as antibodies directed to CD20 or CD38.” said Prof. Jan G. J. van de Winkel, Ph.D., Chief Scientific Officer at Genmab A/S.
