Celldex Therapeutics (NASDAQ: CLDX) this morning said that it has completed patient enrollment in its phase 2b METRIC study of glembatumumab vedotin (glemba) in patients with metastatic triple negative breast cancers that overexpress gpNMB. The antibody-drug conjugate, glemba, works by targeting and binding to the protein expressed by multiple tumor types, gpNMB. The company expects that topline primary endpoint data will be reported in the second quarter of 2018. “Patients with triple negative breast cancer have very limited treatment options. We believe glemba holds significant promise as a potential new targeted treatment for patients with this devastating disease and look forward to topline data, likely in the second quarter of 2018,” Celldex Therapeutics co-founder, president and CEO Anthony Marucci stated in the news release.
