Threshold Pharmaceuticals Inc announces data from phase 1/2 Trial of TH-302 Plus Bevacizumab (Avastin) in patients with recurrent Glioblastoma
Friday, 30 May 2014 07:00am EDT 

Threshold Pharmaceuticals Inc:Clinical data from ongoing investigator-sponsored Phase 1/2 trial of investigational hypoxia-activated prodrug, TH-302, in combination with bevacizumab (Avastin) in patients with recurrent glioblastoma following progression on single-agent bevacizumab.In limited number of patients treated, it is notable that some patients experienced objective tumor shrinkage with TH-302 plus bevacizumab, particularly given that objective responses are rarely seen at this advanced stage of the disease.Moreover, median progression-free survival with TH-302 plus bevacizumab was longer than with prior single-agent bevacizumab.Based on these early signals of clinical activity, company continuing evaluation of TH-302 in this extremely challenging-to-treat population of patients with glioblastoma.Next steps are to further investigate 670 mg/m2 TH-302 dose given with bi-weekly bevacizumab in a multi-center study in this bevacizumab-refractory patient population.Objectives of the ongoing Phase 1/2 investigator-sponsored trial include evaluating the safety and tolerability of TH-302, determining the dose-limiting toxicities and the maximum-tolerated dose of TH-302.Says assessing preliminary signals of clinical activity in patients with bevacizumab-refractory recurrent glioblastoma.  Full Article

Threshold Pharmaceuticals Inc Announces Data From Two Ongoing Phase 1/2 Trials of TH-302
Sunday, 2 Jun 2013 09:00am EDT 

Threshold Pharmaceuticals Inc announced data from two ongoing Phase 1/2 trials evaluating TH-302, an investigational hypoxia-targeted drug, at the 49th Annual Meeting of the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO), which is being held in Chicago, Ill., May 31 through June 4. Updated results from a Phase 1/2 study of TH-302 plus dexamethasone in patients with relapsed/refractory multiple myeloma were presented supplementing the data published in the meeting abstract (Abstract #8602). Of 12 evaluable patients, 2 achieved partial responses (PRs) and 2 minimal responses (MRs) for a clinical benefit rate (MR or better) of 33%. In a Phase 1/2 clinical trial of TH-302 administered in combination with the antiangiogenic therapy sunitinib, one of 4 patients with gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GIST) achieved a confirmed PR, and 3 of 4 patients with renal cell carcinoma (RCC) achieved PRs. A total of 13 patients with relapsed/refractory multiple myeloma and a median number of 6 prior therapies initiated treatment with TH-302 plus dexamethasone in an ongoing Phase 1/2 trial. All patients had received prior therapy with regimens containing a proteasome inhibitor, an immunomodulatory drug (IMiD), and an alkylating agent. TH-302 was dosed at 240 mg/m2 (n=5), 340 mg/m2 (n=6), and 480 mg/m2 (n=2) for a median of 5 cycles. TH-302 was administered with dexamethasone (fixed oral 40 mg dose) on days 1, 4, 8, and 11 of a 21-day cycle.  Full Article

Friday, 25 Jan 2013 04:00am EST 

Threshold Pharmaceuticals Inc announced that Threshold's partner Merck KGaA, Darmstadt, Germany, through its division Merck Serono, initiated the global Phase 3 MAESTRO study assessing the efficacy and safety of investigational hypoxia-targeted drug TH-302 in combination with gemcitabine in patients with previously untreated, locally advanced unresectable or metastatic pancreatic adenocarcinoma. The initiation of the Phase 3 MAESTRO study resulted in Threshold earning a $30 million payment from Merck KGaA pursuant to the terms of Threshold's license and co-development agreement with Merck KGaA, which includes an option for Threshold to co-commercialize in the U.S. MAESTRO stands for TH-302 in the treatment of MetastAtic or unrESectable pancreaTic adenocaRcinOma. MAESTRO is a randomized, placebo-controlled, international, multi-center, double-blind Phase 3 trial of TH-302 plus gemcitabine compared with placebo plus gemcitabine and is expected to enroll 660 patients. The primary efficacy endpoint is overall survival; the secondary endpoints include efficacy measured by progression-free survival (PFS), overall response rate and disease control rate, as well as assessments of safety and tolerability, pharmacokinetics and biomarkers. The study is being conducted under a Special Protocol Assessment (SPA) with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).  Full Article

Threshold Pharmaceuticals Inc Reports Updated Phase 2 Results Including Analyses of Maintenance Therapy With TH-302 Following Induction Therapy With TH-302 Plus Doxorubicin In Soft Tissue Sarcoma
Thursday, 15 Nov 2012 07:30am EST 

Threshold Pharmaceuticals Inc announced updated results from a Phase 2 study of TH-302, the Company's investigational hypoxia-targeted drug, in patients with soft tissue sarcoma, including additional results from patients who were administered TH-302 as single agent maintenance therapy following induction with TH-302 in combination with doxorubicin. In the single-arm Phase 2 component of the study (403 trial), previously untreated patients with metastatic or locally advanced unresectable soft tissue sarcomas were treated with TH-302 (300 mg/m2 on days 1 and 8 of a 21-day cycle) and doxorubicin (75 mg/m2 on day 1) for a maximum of six cycles. After six cycles, patients with stable disease, partial or complete responses, and with acceptable toxicity, were eligible to receive TH-302 maintenance therapy (300 mg/m2 on days 1 and 8 of a 21-day cycle). Response was assessed using RECIST criteria. Results for Overall Study Population (N=91) Updated results for the 91 patients in the Phase 2 component of the study include: Median progression free survival (PFS) of 6.7 months (95% CI: 6.2 to 8.1 months). Median overall survival of 21.5 months (95% CI 16.0 to 27.6 months). One-year survival of 73% (95% CI: 63% to 82%), and two-year survival of 44% (95% CI: 32% to 55%). Overall best response (partial and complete responses, unconfirmed) of36%.  Full Article
