Merck halts Phase 3 Lynparza for futility

Jul 19, 2022

July 18, 2022 Merck (NYSE:MRK) has announced that it will stop the Phase 3 LYNK-003 trial focused on Lynparza (olaparib) with or without bevacizumab for patients with unresectable or metastatic colorectal cancer. Two experimental arms in the trial, one focused on Lynparza as monotherapy or in combination with the immunotherapy drug bevacizumab, will be suspended. The primary endpoint of the trial was progression-free survival. The study focused on patients without progression after first-line therapy. Merck made the decision after receiving feedback from an independent Data Monitoring Committee (DMC) following review from an interim analysis. The PARP inhibitor Lynparza was first developed by KuDOS Pharmaceuticals and the University of Pennsylvania. AstraZeneca acquired KuDOS Pharmaceuticals in 2005. In 2021, the drug jointly earned AstraZeneca and Merck $3.7 billion. The two companies continue to develop Lynparza for a variety of oncology indications, including metastatic breast, prostate, ovarian and pancreatic cancer. The drug first won FDA approval for maintenance treatment of ovarian cancer in 2017. MRK shares dipped 2.76% to $92.34 while AZN shares were up 0.63% to £11,200.00.

Inimex Pharmaceuticals

Inimex Pharmaceuticals, Inc. is focused on the development and commercialization of Innate Defense Regulators (IDRs), first in class drugs that selectively trigger the body's innate defenses without causing inflammation. IDR products have major market potential for infectious disease, cancer, and inflammatory disease. These products will reduce morbidity and mortality in the rapidly growing population of immune suppressed and elderly patients who are "at-risk" for these disorders. IDR products will also benefit healthcare payors by reducing costs associated with hospitalization. Inimex' lead IDR product IMX942 targets a broad spectrum of life-threatening hospital infections, many of which are caused by antibiotic-resistant bacteria such as methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) or vancomycin-resistant Enterococcus (VRE). IMX942 is active against both normal and drug-resistant bacteria and its ability to stimulate host innate immune defenses is not susceptible to bacterial antibiotic resistance mechanisms. The first clinical indication for IMX942 will be the prevention of infections associated with cancer chemotherapy-induced immune suppression. nnAdditional IDR product candidates will be developed for distinct disease areas, with an emphasis on inflammatory disease and demonstration of the potential for orally available IDR dosage forms.
