“IMV, Inc. (IMV) reported positive interim results from Ph. II study of DPX-Survivac in combination with Merck’s Keytruda in relapsed/refractory Lymphoma (r/r DLBCL), thereby further building on the strength of efficacy noted in the prior update in 3Q18 and exceeded our expectation. While still an early read with only six evaluable patients at this cut-off point, one could begin to draw comparison to the 50-72% ORR (n=up to 100 patients) observed with CAR-T approaches from 40% ORR (n=16 patients) observed with antibody drug conjugate (ADC) approach from Roche that led to their respective FDA approvals in this difficult-to-treat B-cell hematological malignancy.”
