Preliminary data from two recent Phase III clinical trials to assess the efficacy of ViRexx's OvaRex as a maintenance treatment for advanced ovarian cancer have failed to show any difference in patients treated with the drug when compared to patients who did not receive treatment. The failure of OvaRex, an immunotherapy, in the IMPACT-I and -II trials involving 367 women with advanced ovarian cancer, represents one of several immunotherapies which have not proven efficacious as maintenance therapies for ovarian cancer in trials.
As a result of this breaking news, the findings and market forecast of Decision Resources' upcoming Ovarian Cancer report will reflect the most up- to-date information available in the ovarian cancer drug market. The author of the report, Decision Resources Analyst Mohamed Muhsin, is available to comment on the market impact of OvaRex's Phase III clinical trial results.
For those reporters covering this topic, Mr. Muhsin can discuss: -- What impact will OvaRex's clinical trial failure have on the ovarian cancer drug market? -- Why have OvaRex and other immunotherapies failed to show efficacy in ovarian cancer? -- The opinions of interviewed clinicians regarding the future of immunotherapy treatment for ovarian cancer. -- Which drugs are currently driving the ovarian cancer drug market and which emerging agents will spur growth over the next decade.
