MacroGenics to Receive $10 Million Milestone Payment from Servier for Dosing the First Patient in a Phase 1 Dose Expansion Trial of MGA271
Date:8/20/2013

ROCKVILLE, Md., Aug. 20, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- MacroGenics, Inc., a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company focused on discovering and developing innovative monoclonal antibody-based therapeutics for the treatment of cancer and autoimmune diseases, announced that the first patient has been dosed in a Phase 1 dose expansion cohort trial of MGA271.  MGA271 is an Fc-optimized monoclonal antibody that targets B7-H3, which is over-expressed on a wide variety of solid tumor types and is a member of the B7 family of molecules that are involved in immune regulation.  This milestone triggers a $10 million payment to MacroGenics from its partner, Les Laboratoires Servier, or Servier.

The dose expansion portion of this Phase 1 clinical trial of MGA271 is designed to further evaluate safety and pharmacokinetics at a weekly dose of 15 mg/kg.  The dose expansion portion of the trial also includes an early evaluation of the potential anti-tumor activity of MGA271.  MacroGenics plans to enroll 45 patients within three cohort groups: two with specific tumor types of 15 patients each, and a third cohort composed of other B7-H3-expressing tumor types.  MacroGenics is enrolling patients in the United States and expects to complete the Phase 1 trial in 2014.  Servier has indicated that it intends to evaluate MGA271 in 45 additional cancer patients representing additional tumor types beginning in the fourth quarter of 2013.

"MGA271 has significant potential to treat a variety of solid tumors and we are very pleased to reach this milestone in the product candidate's ongoing development," said Scott Koenig, M.D., Ph.D., President and CEO of MacroGenics.  "We intend to assess and prioritize future indications for MGA271 clinical trials based on data from these dose expansion cohorts and determine the best pat
