- Patients with Measurable Disease Showed Significantly Improved Progression-Free Survival -
- Progression-Free Survival Improved by 6.2 Months for Patients with Larger Tumors -
The first poster presentation highlighted data from post-hoc analyses from the GOG-0186I Study in patients with measurable disease. Study GOG-0186I evaluated the addition of CA4P to treatment with bevacizumab in patients with recurrent ovarian cancer. In the intent-to-treat population, as well as in a subgroup of patients with measurable disease, the addition of CA4P improved progression-free survival (PFS), including improvements in PFS of 6.2 months for patients with larger tumors. The second poster described the design of the company's on-going FOCUS Study.
"We believe these highly positive data generated for CA4P in combination with anti-angiogenic agents demonstrate the potential for CA4P to alter the treatment landscape for ovarian cancer, and they provide us with confidence as we move our program forward," stated
At Mateon, we believe that we can significantly improve cancer therapy by employing these two complementary approaches simultaneously. When utilized this way, VDAs obstruct existing blood vessels in the tumor leading to significant central tumor cell death while AAs prevent the formation of new tumor blood vessels.
Mateon is committed to leveraging our intellectual property and the product development expertise of our highly skilled management team to enable VTT to realize its true potential and to bring much-needed new therapies to cancer patients worldwide.
