The first girl in the trial came in with chronic diarrhea and the immune system of an untreated HIV patient. Born with a rare genetic disease that impeded her ability to make B and T cells, she had once been given a stem cell transplant but it didn’t take. Back in the hospital, she was injected with a new experimental antibody and then given a new stem cell transplant. Soon, she gained weight. The diarrhea stopped. “She has normal T cells now, she’s in school,” Judith Shizuru, the Stanford scientist who pioneered the antibody, told Endpoints News . “It’s a wonderful thing.”It’s the kind of medical story you’d love to launch your biotech with, so that’s what Shizuru is doing. Today, her company Jasper Therapeutics is emerging out of stealth.

Just weeks after boasting head-to-head victories over first placebo and then J&J’s IL-23 contender in clearing psoriasis, the results are in for UCB’s last Phase III trial, in which bimekizumab went up against the world’s best-selling drug. Only topline results are provided for today’s readout of the BE SURE study, so we won’t find out just how superior bimekizumab proved against Humira on the co-primary endpoints — standard scores known as PASI90 and IGA measuring the impact and severity of the disease — until a scientific conference in 2020.

FerGene was born ready. By the time Ferring the biotech with a gene therapy licensed from FKD Therapies Oy and $400 million in cash from Blackstone, they had secured a priority review on their BLA and pointed to an imminent date for the pivotal Phase III readout in bladder cancer. The date came yesterday, and FerGene said its experimental drug did not disappoint. In a single arm trial of 157 patients with high-grade non-muscle invasive bladder cancer, investigators zeroed in on a subgroup — 103 patients with carcinoma in situ, ie bladder cancer that is confined to the superficial layer, with or without concomitant high-grade Ta or T1 papillary disease — for the primary endpoint.

The 31 staffers left at German biotech Mologen are now working for a liquidator. And the focus now is on finding buyers for anything it has left that can be sold. Mologen filed for insolvency a few days ago, months after its lead drug — the TLR9 agonist lefitolimod — failed badly in Phase III. Back in August the company reported that their drug produced a near mirror image result for median overall survival in comparison to the control group in a Phase III. Their OS rate was 22 months when the drug was used as a second-line therapy for colorectal cancer. That compared to 21.9 months for the comparison group. And secondary endpoints didn’t provide any reason to hope for something better. Mologen — which had partnered on the drug with China-b.

But off the stage, reactions to their admittedly complicated dataset and the biotech’s explanation for resurrecting a drug that failed its futility analysis were a lot more mixed, with analysts continuing to question whether the evidence is substantial enough to warrant an FDA approval and raising new doubts on the safety side. Biogen had a theory going into the Clinical Trials on Alzheimer’s Disease meeting. Once they took into account patients who were consistently exposed to a high dose of aducanumab.
