MOLOGEN AG: Treatment with renal cancer therapy MGN1601 generates clear
survival benefit for patients

- First evaluation of survival times provides results that exceed
- Immunological active principle proven in an exemplary manner 

In a further evaluation of the phase I/II renal cancer study with MGN1601,
the biotechnology company MOLOGEN AG has analyzed the survival times of
patients enrolled in the study and the first data of the accompanying
immunological tests. The result: patients that were able to completely
finish the twelve-week therapy scheme scheduled in the study protocol with
the study drug MGN1601 (PP group) have an unexpectedly clear survival
benefit in comparison with patients that had to terminate their study
therapy early (non-PP group).

Thus far, the ten patients in the PP group already survived more than ten
months on average. Since only one patient in this group has died by now,
this parameter will continue to improve. In the non-PP group, the median
survival time is a little over two months; all nine patients had died at
the latest after six months. With regard to historical clinical data and
statistical models, a median survival time of five to seven months was
expected. Hence, this was clearly exceeded in this study.

Furthermore it is very remarkable that for two patients who are currently
being treated in the extension phase of the study at fixed intervals, the
disease has not progressed in over ten months.

Immunological principle proven in an exemplary manner

With the evaluation of immunological data it was possible to prove in an
exemplary manner that those patients that completed the entire planned
three-month treatment cycle with MGN1601 in accordance with the study
protocol have generated a clear immune response. The strength of the immune
response increased with continued treatment. With these results, the
mechanism of action demonstrated in preclinical studies could also be
confirmed in patients. In the view of MOLOGEN AG, the observed positive
effects with respect to overall survival can thus be attributed to the
treatment with MGN1601.
