Micromet Presents Update at ASCO 2009 on a Phase 1b Combination Study of Adecatumumab and Docetaxel
Date:6/1/2009

ed to patients treated at lower doses (167 days versus 83 days). These observations are in line with data from a previous phase 2 trial investigating adecatumumab as a single agent in MBC patients that also suggested that treatment with adecatumumab was associated with better outcome in patients with high EpCAM expression compared to patients with low EpCAM expression(2). Micromet is currently also conducting a randomized phase 2 clinical trial with adecatumumab in patients with colorectal cancer after complete resection of liver metastases.

"These data indicate that adding adecatumumab to standard chemotherapy is feasible," said Carsten Reinhardt, M.D., Ph.D., senior vice president and chief medical officer of Micromet. "The combination of adecatumumab with taxanes could be a valuable development option for MBC patients with high EpCAM expression on their tumors, and would offer an antibody-based therapy to those patients who express EpCAM but not Her-2 and thus do not qualify for Her-2-targeting antibody therapy."
