MGI Pharma, Inc. Summarizes Data Presented at the 2007 American,Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) Annual Meeting

udies designed to evaluate the dose, toxicity, biologic response, and preliminary clinical response of Dacogen alone and in combination with hyperCVAD, in patients with relapsed/refractory ALL were presented on Saturday, June 2, 2007. Patients were treated with intravenous Dacogen administered daily for five days every other week (starting at 100 mg/m2 per course) with 7 of 13 patients subsequently retreated with Dacogen (starting at 25 mg/m2 per course) and given hyperCVAD every three to four weeks. Both agents were started on Day 1. Two patients had complete bone marrow response on Dacogen alone with one of these patients also having a complete response except for platelets (CRp) with subsequent hyperCVAD therapy. Two additional patients who also received combination therapy had a complete response (CR). One of the responding patients received a successful allogeneic stem cell transplant. Correlative studies on patient peripheral blood samples demonstrated hypomethylation and hematological control. No significant Grade 3 or Grade 4 drug related non-hematological toxicities were observed.

Retrospective Data on the Overall Survival of Patients with Glioblastoma Treated with Gliadel Wafer Implantation as Part of Multimodal Therapy

The results of a retrospective analysis to assess the survival of patients treated with rotational multi-agent chemotherapy compared to those who received chemotherapy together with Gliadel Wafer were presented in a poster discussion on Monday June 4, 2007. Eighty-five patients with primary glioblastoma multiforme received surgery with (n=36) or without (n=49) Gliadel implantation followed by radiotherapy and concurrent temozolomide (TMZ) plus one year of adjuvant rotational multi-agent chemotherapy (lomustine (CCNU), TMZ, and irinotecan), consisting of two cycles of each agent. After a median follow-up of 132 weeks, the group that received Gliadel had an extended median survival of 89.4 weeks (95% CI,
