Human Genome Sciences Reports Growing Evidence That Its TRAIL,Receptor Antibodies Have Significant Potential in the Treatment of,a Broad Range of Cancers

- Journal of Clinical Oncology publishes first clinical study of HGS-ETR1 -

ROCKVILLE, Md., April 27, 2007 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Human Genome Sciences, Inc. today reported that clinical and preclinical evidence continues to emerge demonstrating that its TRAIL receptor antibodies, HGS-ETR1 (mapatumumab) and HGS-ETR2 (lexatumumab), have significant potential for use in the treatment of a broad range of cancers.

"We believe that HGS-ETR1 and HGS-ETR2 could offer novel, highly targeted therapeutic options that may prove useful in the treatment of a number of cancers," said Gilles Gallant, B. Pharm., Ph.D., Vice President, Clinical Research - Oncology, HGS. "We note with pride that the Journal of Clinical Oncology, one of the field's most prestigious peer-reviewed publications, chose to publish the first human study of HGS-ETR1 earlier this month with an accompanying editorial - and, last week at AACR 2007, approximately 1500 cancer scientists and researchers attended our oral presentation of research results to date."

Results in the Journal of Clinical Oncology

The results of the first Phase 1 clinical trial of mapatumumab (HGS-ETR1) appeared in the April 10 issue of the Journal of Clinical Oncology (JCO), the official journal of the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO). These results in 49 patients demonstrated that mapatumumab could be administered safely and repetitively to patients with advanced solid malignancies. The authors concluded that the absence of severe toxicities, and mapatumumab's ability to achieve blood levels consistent with antitumor activity in laboratory models, warrant further study of mapatumumab as a single agent and in combination with chemotherapy in a broad array of tumors.

Based on the initial Phase 1 results, along with extensive preclinical data, HGS initiated a broad clinical development program that included Phase 2 trials of HGS-ETR1 as a sin
