Tarvacin(TM) also useful in imaging solid tumors
Jul 31, 2005, 23:13, Reviewed by: Dr.

"These imaging data indicate another potential utility for Tarvacin(TM) and other agents that fall under our Anti-Phospholipid Therapy technology platform. In addition to its anti-cancer activity, the company recently announced data showing Tarvacin's impressive anti-viral activity and the company has been evaluating the compound for activity in treating ocular disease."

 
Peregrine Pharmaceuticals, Inc reported that data was presented at the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) Annual Meeting in Anaheim, California showing the potential use of Tarvacin(TM), its lead Anti-Phospholipid Therapy agent, for imaging solid tumors. The presentation talk was titled "Tumor Imaging With The Vascular Targeting Antibody Tarvacin(TM) Labeled with Arsenic Isotopes".

Data presented showed that Tarvacin(TM) could be used to deliver a radioactive arsenic compound to prostate cancer blood vessels for tumor imaging. An earlier presentation at the AACR Annual Meeting had shown the potential of Tarvacin(TM) for the treatment of prostate cancer. Peregrine expects to begin patient enrollment in a Tarvacin(TM) phase I clinical trial for the treatment of cancer within the next 30 days.

"These imaging data indicate another potential utility for Tarvacin(TM) and other agents that fall under our Anti-Phospholipid Therapy technology platform," said Steven King, president and CEO of Peregrine Pharmaceuticals. "We will continue to explore additional ways to fully utilize this technology platform for the treatment and therapy of cancer and other diseases. In addition to its anti-cancer activity, the company recently announced data showing Tarvacin's impressive anti-viral activity and the company has been evaluating the compound for activity in treating ocular disease."

About Peregrine Pharmaceuticals

Peregrine Pharmaceuticals, Inc. is a biopharmaceutical company with a broad portfolio of products under development directed towards the treatment of cancer, viruses and other diseases. The company plans to initiate patient enrollment in two separate clinical trials for the treatment of all solid tumors using Tarvacin(TM) (under its Anti-Phospholipid Therapy platform) and for the treatment of brain cancer using Cotara(R) (under its Tumor Necrosis Therapy platform). Our agents in development for oncology applications fall under several different proprietary platforms, including Anti-Phospholipid Therapy, Vascular Targeting Agents (VTAs), Tumor Necrosis Therapy (TNT), Anti-Angiogenesis, and Vasopermeation Enhancement Agents (VEAs). Our viral therapy approach is based on the fact that enveloped viruses and virally infected cells have phospholipids exposed on their surface and thus can be targeted using our Anti-Phospholipid Therapy agents.

Peregrine Pharmaceuticals also has in-house expertise to develop and manufacture antibodies and recombinant proteins through its wholly-owned subsidiary, Avid Bioservices, Inc., (http://www.avidbio.com). Avid is engaged in providing contract manufacturing services and development of biologics for biopharmaceutical and biotechnology companies, including Peregrine.
