Human Genome Sciences Completes Enrollment in Randomized Phase 2 Trial of HGS-ETR1 in Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer
Date:8/22/2008

inical data suggests that combining HGS-ETR1 with chemotherapy agents could be an effective approach to the treatment of a number of malignancies, including non-small cell lung cancer," said Gilles Gallant, B. Pharm., Ph.D., Vice President, Clinical Research - Oncology, HGS. "HGS-ETR1 is the most advanced of any product in development that targets the TRAIL apoptotic pathway. The NSCLC study is one of three ongoing HGS trials designed to evaluate combinations of HGS-ETR1 with chemotherapeutic agents for the treatment of specific cancers."

About the HGS-ETR1 Proof-of-Concept Trials

The HGS-ETR1 proof-of-concept phase includes three randomized trials to evaluate its potential in combination with chemotherapy for the treatment of specific cancers:

-- Randomization and initial dosing of patients in the NSCLC study have now been completed.

-- In July 2008, HGS initiated dosing in the safety lead-in to a randomized Phase 2 trial of HGS-ETR1 in combination with Nexavar (sorafenib) in patients with advanced hepatocellular cancer, which accounts for 80-90% of all liver cancers.

-- The Company expects to have initial data available in the third quarter of 2008 from a randomized Phase 2 trial of HGS-ETR1 in combination with Velcade (bortezomib) in advanced multiple myeloma. Patients in the multiple myeloma study will continue on treatment until the progression of disease.

These three trials, taken together, will support a decision on whether to advance HGS-ETR1 to Phase 3 development. It also is possible that a sufficiently positive result from any one of the trials could lead to a Phase 3 decision for that specific indication.

About Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer

Non-small cell lung cancer accounts for approximately 75-80% of all lung cancers. It is estimated that more than 170,000 new cases and more than 160,000 deaths occur annually in the United States alone. It is currently the leading cause of cancer death in the U.S. i
