About Talimogene Laherparepvec
Talimogene laherparepvec is an investigational oncolytic immunotherapy derived from herpes simplex virus type-1 designed to selectively replicate within cancer cells and to produce GM-CSF to enhance systemic antitumor immune responses. Talimogene laherparepvec is injected directly into tumor tissue and replicates until the membranes of the cancer cells rupture, thereby destroying them in a process known as oncolysis. The virus contained in these cells as well as potential tumor antigens are then released locally along with GM-CSF, a white blood cell growth factor that the virus is engineered to express. This is intended to activate antigen presenting cells and elicit a systemic immune response to kill tumor cells throughout the body.

About Blinatumomab
Blinatumomab is an investigational bi-specific T cell engager (BiTE®) antibody designed to direct the body's cytotoxic T cells against target cells expressing CD19, a protein found on the surface of B-cell derived leukemias and lymphomas. The modified antibodies are designed to engage two different targets simultaneously, thereby juxtaposing T cells with cancer cells. Blinatumomab is the first of the BiTE antibodies, and Amgen has received orphan drug designation from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the treatment of ALL, chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL), hairy cell leukemia, prolymphocytic leukemia and indolent B cell lymphoma and from the European Medicines Agency for the treatment of indolent B cell lymphoma, ALL, CLL and mantle cell leukemia (MCL).
