Biotechnology company Immutep (NASDAQ: IMMP) has announced encouraging interim data from its ongoing Phase 2 TACTI-002.


The company released an update on Thursday evening stating that they were encouraged by the results of the study which is being conducted with Merck & Co Inc.

The study is evaluating the combination of Immutep’s lead product eftilagimod alpha with Merck’s KEYTRUDA in patients with 2nd line head and neck squamous cell carcinoma or non-small cell lung cancer.

“We are very encouraged by the results in this patient group with resistant late stage Head & Neck Cancers where the likelihood of response to other treatments is small.

“The durability of responses and the two patients with a complete response are extremely promising signals and this combination should be further investigated,” said the Principal investigator, Dr Martin Forster, University College London Hospital.
