Merrimack Pharmaceuticals' Preclinical Research Shows MM-111 Restores Sensitivity To Chemotherapy And HER2-targeted Treatment In Gastric Cancer Model
Date:4/10/2013

tric, esophageal and ovarian cancers. 

Study Results

Results of the preclinical study showed that the combination of MM-111 with trastuzumab is synergistic in a preclinical HER2-expressing gastric cancer model. Additionally, the study found that heregulin desensitizes gastric tumor cells to the effects of trastuzumab and paclitaxel.  The addition of MM-111 to the paclitaxel and trastuzumab regimen, or the addition of MM-111 to either paclitaxel or trastuzumab, restored sensitivity of tumors to treatment in the model.
