The analysts wrote, "Following PTCL data from ESMO and post-transplant Hodgkin Lymphoma (HL) AETHERA data, we are lowering our rating to Underperform (from Neutral) and our DCF-derived PO to $34 (from $40). While consolidation in post-autologous stem cell transplantation (ASCT) HL with Adcetris had a 75% progression free survival (PFS) advantage vs. placebo, the interim overall survival (OS) advantage was not significant. While this could reflect limited statistical power with few events, it appears to be partly due to use of Adcetris post-progression in the placebo arm. We raised the probability of approval in this setting to 70% (from 60%), but we slowed the ramp pending OS data in 2016. In our view, the lack of survival advantage could reinforce Adcetris’ role as salvage therapy and less as a frontline option. Our model revisions were primarily in the frontline settings (see below)."
The scientists are hoping that the success they've had with PTN in animal models will translate to human patients. "If PTN works as a systemic therapy for patients undergoing stem cell transplantation or receiving chemotherapy, this could potentially improve the quality of life of patients undergoing these treatments, shorten hospital stays, decrease infections and allow the anti-cancer treatments to potentially work more effectively" Dr JohnJohn Chute, lead investigator of the study and hematology and radiation oncology professor at UCLA, wrote to DOTmed News
"We have identified thousands of novel places where the RNA is processed in an alternative way" said Willem H Ouwehand, Professor of Experimental Haematology at the University of Cambridge and the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute
"This experiment demonstrated that autologous hematopoietic stem cell transplantation is a feasible intervention that can lead to a marked reduction of the virus reservoir in the peripheral blood, and can be used as an experimental in vivo platform to test innovative interventions aimed at curing HIV infection in humans."
