Prima Biomed - Interim CVac data

Wednesday, Oct 17 2012 by

Oct 17th 2012 - Edison Investment Research today published a report on Prima Biomed entitled "Interim CVac Data". In summary, the report says:

Interim data from the 63-patient CAN-003 Phase IIb trial of Prima’s CVac immunotherapeutic in ovarian cancer in first or second remission showed safety and some preliminary evidence of activity. However, the lack of a more definitive signal, even though this would be unlikely to be seen at this point, caused a 12% sell-off in Prima’s shares. Full data from this study, which may provide this proof of concept, are due in c 12 months’ time. However, Prima’s investment case hinges on the outcome of a larger 1,000 patient CANVAS Phase II/III study of CVac, given as first line maintenance in ovarian cancer, for which data are due in March 2015.
