Celldex Therapeutics, Inc. Research Report
On December 2, 2013, Celldex Therapeutics, Inc. (Celldex) announced that the Company has initiated a randomized study (METRIC) of Glembatumumab vedotin (CDX-011) in patients with metastatic triple negative breast cancers that over-express glycoprotein NMB (gpNMB). The Company informed that glembatumumab vedotin is an antibody-drug conjugate that targets and binds to gpNMB, a protein expressed in breast cancer which promotes the migration, invasion and metastasis of the disease. Further, Celldex informed that it is also highly expressed in triple negative breast cancers where it is associated with higher risk of recurrence. Thomas Davis, M.D., Senior Vice President and Chief Medical Officer of Celldex said, "Currently, patients with triple negative breast cancer have very limited treatment options and no targeted interventions. We believe gpNMB could be an important marker in breast cancer and that Glembatumumab vedotin holds significant potential as a possible targeted therapy for women facing this disease." Celldex informed that initial sites are now open to screen patients in the US, and additional sites in the US, Canada, and Australia, will open in early 2014.
