Transgene Reports Randomized Phase 2b Data with its Therapeutic HPV Vaccine TG4001 in Women with CIN2/3 Intraepithelial Cervical Neoplasia

Transgene Reports Randomized Phase 2b Data with its Therapeutic HPV Vaccine TG4001 in Women with CIN2/3 Intraepithelial Cervical Neoplasia

Robust clinical and virological proof-of-concept for the activity of the therapeutic vaccine in monotherapy

Strasbourg, France, May 9, 2012 - Transgene S.A. (Euronext Paris: FR0005175080) announces today that it has received from Roche, the former exclusive licensee of the product(1), 6-month headline results of the placebo-controlled study of TG4001 (RG3484) in women with CIN2/3 intra-epithelial neoplasia of the cervix due to infection with high-risk HPV (as defined by the Roche Linear-Array® test).


This ongoing study conducted in the US and Europe enrolled 206 patients and aims at demonstrating the safety and activity of TG4001 in terms of histological resolution(2) and viral clearance(3). The primary endpoint of the study is the histological resolution rate at 6 months in the sub-group of women with HPV16 mono-infection.


The main efficacy results of the study in terms of histological and anti-viral efficacy at 6 months (6 months after treatment) are summarized in the following table:

Results in the modified Intent-To-Treat (mITT) population: Patients who received at least one dose of study drug and had baseline diagnosis of CIN2/3 confirmed by central pathology review.


Histological resolution and viral clearance in both groups (HPV16 mono-infected and all genotypes) are significantly higher in the experimental arm than in the placebo arm, with notably a fourfold difference between the arms in the HPV16 mono-infected patients group, all this with high significant statistical value(4).


Given the short dosing schedule (only three administrations of the therapeutic vaccine) and the fact that TG4001 was, unlike in other clinical trials conducted by Transgene with its other MVA products, only injected in monotherapy, such data represent a strong proof-of-concept for the activity of the therapeutic vaccine, and are therefore extremely encouraging for TG4001 and the MVA platform.


TG4001 has shown a similarly good safety profile as in the previous trials, with non-serious injection site reactions being the most frequent adverse events associated with the product.


To move the product into phase 3 clinical trials and towards registration in CIN 2/3, it was expected, in addition to at least a doubling of the resolution rate compared to placebo (which was attained), a 60% resolution rate in the HPV16 mono-infected population. This latter objective, not reached, was set in light of the well-established high efficiency of conization, the existing surgical option for CIN 2/3 patients. As a consequence, Transgene does not expect to further develop TG4001 in this indication and would rather address higher unmet medical needs, such as certain head and neck cancers and cervical cancer related to infection by HPV. Indeed, for these latter indications, the market potential is far greater than for CIN 2/3 and the product could efficiently be combined with chemotherapy (as it has been demonstrated that MVA therapeutic vaccines synergize the effect of chemotherapy).


Further analysis of the data is necessary and will be conducted. Transgene expects to receive follow up data (notably on safety and viral clearance) on this trial within the next two years.


"The study conducted by Roche has clearly demonstrated that TG4001 is active, which obviously is a positive sign for the product as well as for the whole MVA platform" said Dr. Jean-Marc Limacher, CMO of Transgene S.A. He added: "We are not going to move this product into phase 3 in CIN 2/3 but we believe that its clinical development in other HPV-induced malignancies, such as head and neck cancer or cervical cancer, particularly in combination with chemotherapy, makes sense".


"Given the effective existing surgical treatment, CIN 2/3 is an indication with a very high entry bar for any novel therapeutic approach." said Philippe Archinard, Chairman and CEO of Transgene S.A. He added: "We have other development options for TG4001, but in the short term Transgene wants to focus its resources on its most advanced developments with TG4010 (lung cancer), JX594/TG6006 (liver cancer) and TG4040 (hepatitis C). Hence, development of TG4001 in other indications is more likely to be conducted through partnerships. In the short term, these results will have a limited impact on our portfolio which only marginally factored in the CIN2/3 development."

About TG4001:

TG4001 is a therapeutic vaccine based on a non-propagative, highly attenuated vaccinia vector (MVA), which is engineered to express HPV16 antigens (E6 & E7) and an adjuvant (IL-2). TG4001 is designed to have a two-pronged anti-viral approach: to alert the immune system specifically to HPV16-infected cells that have started to undergo precancerous transformation (cells presenting the HPV16 E6 and E7 antigens) and to further stimulate the infection-clearing activity of the immune system through interleukin 2.

About HPV-mediated diseases:

HPV infection is recognized as the necessary cause of precancerous cervical lesions and cervical cancers and is the most common sexually transmitted disease affecting about 400 million women worldwide. HPV participates also in the development of a substantial and increasing proportion of head and neck cancers. Most infections are spontaneously eliminated in less than one year. In the remaining cases, persistent HPV infection can lead, after several years or decades to precancerous lesions of the cervix - called cervical intraepithelial neoplasia of grades 2 and 3 (CIN 2/3) - and eventually to cervical cancer. In the United States and in Europe, some 580 000 new cases of CIN 2/3 are reported yearly, of which over 80% are linked to HPV16 and HPV16 related genotypes. The HPV16 genotype, along with HPV18, 31 and 33 genotypes, have the highest risk of transforming infected cervical cells into cancerous cells.


HPV16 and related HPV are also associated with a subset of head and neck cancers, especially those arising from the oropharynx, the most incident, and the larynx. The incidence of HPV16-related oropharyngeal squamous cell cancer has significantly increased among white men and at younger ages, over the last past years (+1.5% CAGR expected) and is estimated to reach ~35 000 patients by 2020 in the US and the five major countries in Europe. The global market value of head and neck cancer indications amounted to 1B$ in 2010, with chemotherapies as the most widely used options.

Note d'information importante

Chère Cliente, Cher Client,

Nous souhaitons vous donner quelques règles à suivre pour investir dans les meilleures conditions et vous présenter les risques potentiels auxquels vous êtes susceptibles d'être exposés.

Vos connaissances, Votre profil d'investisseur
Tout d'abord évaluez vos connaissances boursières et financières et formez-vous en consultant le Guide de l'Investisseur, véritable introduction à la bourse et à l'épargne qui est disponible sur votre site Boursorama Banque sous la rubrique «Aide/Formation».
Définissez ensuite votre profil d'investisseur (prudent, équilibré, dynamique) et vos objectifs (durée de placement, rentabilité …). Ce constat vous permettra de vous orienter vers les produits et les marchés qui vous sont le mieux adaptés.

Pensez à vos besoins de liquidité
Adaptez votre durée de placement (1 mois, 1 an, 5 ans, …) à vos besoins de liquidités (projets, impôts …) et en tout état de cause, n'investissez pas en Bourse une partie trop importante de votre patrimoine.

La composition de votre portefeuille
Etudiez la composition de votre portefeuille : diversifiez vos placements afin de réduire au maximum le risque inhérent à un support ou à un secteur en particulier et n'investissez pas dans les produits optionnels (warrants, certificats), fortement risqués, si votre portefeuille n'est pas suffisamment important.

Connaître la vie des Sociétés
Renseignez-vous sur la société au sein de laquelle vous envisagez d'investir (actualités, santé financière, opérations à venir, …).

Agir en connaissance de cause
Soyez conscient des risques auxquels vous êtes exposés : de fait, si certains produits (actions volatiles, warrants, certificats, future…) ou certains modes d'investissement (Service de Règlement Différé) augmentent les espérances de gain, ils accroissent aussi fortement le risque de perte (totale). Ainsi, une connaissance technique préalable approfondie est requise, c'est pourquoi nous conseillons aux néophytes de s'écarter de ce type de produits.

Des risques différents selon les marchés
Prenez connaissance des caractéristiques des marchés sur lesquels vous allez investir : vous êtes confrontés à un risque variable (liquidité, volatilité, niveau d'information, change…) selon les marchés sur lesquels vous décidez d'intervenir (Premier Marché, Second Marché, Nouveau marché, Marché Libre, Marché étranger…).

Figez vos pertes
Enfin, la règle d'or à retenir est de savoir figer ses pertes : à vous de définir le montant de perte acceptable dès le début et une fois ce niveau atteint agissez en conséquence.

En appliquant ces quelques règles de bonnes conduite vous serez à même de mieux appréhender votre risque lorsque vous allez investir sur les Marchés
