Sydney, Australia, 24th July 2018: Minomic International Ltd
(Minomic) is an immuno-oncology company specializing in therapeutics and diagnostics for solid tumors, including prostate, bladder and pancreas. The Company today announced that it has completed enrolment and dosing of all 12 patients in its pioneering clinical trial of Miltuximab®, a chimeric version of Minomic’s MIL-38 anti-Glypican 1 antibody conjugated to the radioactive isotope 67Gallium.
The Miltuximab® Trial is a first-in-human study to evaluate the safety and tumor targeting of Miltuximab®, in patients with metastatic prostate, bladder, and pancreatic cancer. The primary endpoint of the MILGa trial is safety and tolerability of Miltuximab®. Secondary endpoints include tumor targeting, pharmacokinetics and dosimetry to determine relative accumulation of Miltuximab®, in different organs.
All patients have now been dosed and we are pleased to report Miltuximab® was well tolerated with patients reporting no drug related adverse events. Secondary endpoints will be reported when data analysis is completed - to date these are progressing well.
Minomic’s CEO, Dr Brad Walsh, said, “These results will inform the future development of the drug and most importantly the next step, progression to a Phase 1 trial in Australia. Each phase in this process enhances the attractiveness of the company to potential partners. ”
We are grateful to the principal investigator Prof. Howard Gurney and his team at Macquarie University Hospital for their dedication to bringing new therapies to cancer patients.
