ed in two different cancer types in Phase III," said Dr. Oliver Kisker, Senior Vice-President, Global Clinical Development Unit Oncology, Merck KGaA.

"We are very pleased by the robust development program our partner, Merck KGaA, is conducting for Stimuvax," said Robert L. Kirkman, M.D., President and Chief Executive Officer of Oncothyreon. "The addition of the Phase 3 STRIDE trial in breast cancer to the Phase 3 START trial in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) is evidence of their strong commitment to this innovative product candidate."

About Stimuvax

Stimuvax is an investigational therapeutic cancer vaccine designed to induce an immune response to cancer cells that express MUC1, a glycoprotein antigen widely expressed on common cancers. MUC1 is over-expressed on many cancers such as lung cancer, breast cancer, prostate cancer and colorectal cancer. Stimuvax is thought to work by stimulating the body's immune system to identify and destroy cancer cells expressing MUC1.

In addition to STRIDE, Merck KGaA currently is conducting a global Phase 3 trial of Stimuvax known as START (Stimulating Targeted Antigenic Responses To NSCLC). START is a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study that will evaluate patients with documented unresectable stage III NSCLC who have had a response or stable disease after at least two cycles of platinum-based chemo-radiotherapy. START is expected to enroll more than 1,300 patients in over 30 countries. For more information on the START trial log on to www.nsclcstudy.com or www.clinicaltrials.gov.
