Teva reports success in lymphoma trial

Israeli drug maker's portfolio company CureTech announces preliminary topline results for investigational anti-PD-1 monoclonal antibody

CureTech, a portfolio company of Teva and Clal Biotechnology Industries, has reported success in a Phase II clinical trial for CT-011, an investigational anti-PD-1 monoclonal antibody.


CT-011 met the primary endpoint of improved progression-free survival (PFS) in patients with Diffuse Large B Cell Lymphoma (DLBCL) following autologous stem cell transplantation.


The company says statistically significant results have also been achieved in the secondary endpoint of Overall Survival (OS).


Preliminary analyses indicate that 70% of the patients treated with CT-011 were progression-free at the end of the follow-up period, as compared to only 47% in the historical control.


Final results are expected within three months and will be presented in international scientific meetings.


Teva holds about 33% of CureTech and has the option to buy all shares.
