Early Results from GenMab's HuMax Clinical Trial

Date: January 3, 2006

In a recent article (Sons of Rituxan and Campath) we reviewed the background for the Phase-2 clinical trial of GenMab’s new HuMax-CD20 monoclonal antibody. Like its more famous cousin Rituxan, this new monoclonal antibody also targets the CD20 marker on CLL cells. The high profile of this clinical trial was reflected in how fast the patient recruitment happened. The trial was sold out in record time, and several of our members were disappointed at not being able to get in.

ASH2005 had a paper on the preliminary results of this important clinical trial. Our analysis of the results is in a new article: Early Results from GenMab's HuMax Clinical Trial. As I am fond of saying, the devil is in the details - which we will track as additional results are reported from this trial.

Be well,

Chaya
