...Corp. FactSheet 1-22-2014: http://www.peregrineinc.com/images/stories/pdfs/jan_corp_fact_sheet.pdf
Avid Bioservices, Inc. (wholly-owned mfg. subsidiary): http://www.avidbio.com (Avid ad in '13-'14 BPI Industry Yearbook: http://tinyurl.com/mhhs4e2 )
Peregrine Pharmaceuticals (Nasdaq: PPHM) is a biopharmaceutical company developing monoclonal antibodies for the treatment & diagnosis of cancer.
Its pipeline is based on 2 technology platforms:
1) Phosphatidylserine(PS)-targeting antibodies, like Bavituximab (inventor: UTSW's Dr. Philip Thorpe)
2) DNA/histone-targeting antibodies, like Cotara (inventor: USC's Dr. Alan Epstein)
Bavituximab is the Company's lead Ph.3 therapeutic PS-targeting antibody, which has demonstrated therapeutic potential and represents a new approach to treating cancer (video), as 2013 published data (AACR/SITC/IASLC) shows that Bavi mediates multiple immunostimulatory changes in the tumor environment, including a reduction of tumor-promoting immune cells and an increase in tumor fighting (M1) macrophages, dendritic cells, and cytotoxic T-cells that fight solid tumors by blocking the immunosuppressive PS signal.
PGN650 is the Company's PS-targeting Imaging Agent that represents a potential new approach to imaging cancer.
In addition, Peregrine also operates Avid Bioservices, a wholly owned cGMP CMO subsidiary, which provides contract mfg. services on a fee-for-service basis (revs. May'06-Oct'13=$92.1mm), as well as support of Peregrine's own product pipeline.

"Phil will be sorely missed as a colleague and friend. At Peregrine, each of us is pursuing Phil's dream of bringing important drugs to patients who need them based on his basic research. We are more motivated than ever to see this dream through."

SCIENCE: "Evolution has favored pathogenesis that resembles apoptosis."
Dr. Judah Folkman: ”This [Thorpe’s VTA research] is very promising and very elegant work... The whole goal is really 2-part, reducing the harsh side effects of cancer treatment, and reducing the chance that some cancer cells will evade treatment. That would be a big step in the next decade, and anti-vascular therapy will play a major role." (’97 & ’02 http://tinyurl.com/k5qe96g & http://tinyurl.com/n6vh9hp )

...GZ: "This means that patients randomized into the high dose arm were administered Bavi correctly, whereas some of the patients in the placebo arm were administered low dose Bavi and some in the low dose Bavi arm were administered placebo. More importantly, the findings suggested that the MOS of 13.1 mos. in the high dose arm was likely to be valid. Even by historical measures, this is a remarkable result, since docetaxel's product insert lists the MOS of NSCLC patients receiving this widely used drug as 2nd-Line therapy in 2 trials as 5.7 & 7.5 mos. In effect, adding Bavi doubled the MOS. In our view, this was an extraordinary stroke of luck. If the high dose arm had been affected by the coding discrepancy, Peregrine would have been in a completely different & unfortunate position… Moreover, Peregrine must determine how best to present its case to the FDA. Will the historical controls be sufficient to justify moving Bavi into a Phase III pivotal trial, or will Peregrine have to pool the results of the placebo & low-dose arms and use that as a comparator to argue for moving ahead? A simple average of the placebo & low-dose arms results in a new control MOS of about 8.4 mos., still several months less than that of the high dose arm. This quick analysis results in about a 5-mo. survival advantage, a substantial prolongation for patients with second-line NSCLC and likely to justify moving Bavi into a pivotal Phase III trial in 2013, in our view."
1-7-13 PPHM PR - Review Update: "discrepancies are isolated to the placebo and 1 mg/kg arms; no evidence of discrepancies in the 3 mg/kg arm… Peregrine is taking a very conservative approach toward analyzing the results by combining the placebo & 1mg/kg arms into one treatment arm (control arm), and comparing to the 3mg/kg arm. This analysis indicates that the 3 mg/kg arm continues to show favorable TRR's, PFS, and OS over the new combined control arm.

At this point, all options are being considered, with Peregrine working towards the most efficient path forward from a regulatory standpoint."

And, what you're really looking for is an ability to describe that you do have clinical efficacy, and as Joe has said, showing 11.7 mos. for the 3mg arm and a difference in the pooled dataset for the product of 7.3 mos. when you combine the control & the placebo, definitely gives you the indication that in overall survival, we have a potentially highly efficacious product… we're going to discuss the entire situation of the investigation with the agency, as well as all the data I just described, and we feel pretty confident that we have enough data to move the product effectively into Phase III."

We've laid out our strategy for financing the company; we've not been raising money thru the capital markets in any way. We're not currently planning on going out for, nor have we been actively involved in any other fund-raising activities.

MOS trends) in this large area of high unmet medical need has also sparked a surge in partnering discussions that has included over 15 in-person partnering meetings since that time with major players in oncology, with all discussions ongoing and addl. parties showing interest. Our goal for the program is to position ourselves, along with a potential partner, to initiate Ph3 by mid-2013, which means an EOP2 meeting by yr-end'12. It would be ideal to have a partner on board to participate in the EOP2 meeting, and we have communicated this to interested parties and they agree."
...Robert Garnick: "We've been working very hard and very actively on the next steps in our Bavi 2nd-Line NSCLC pgm, given the favorable data that we've seen. As you can imagine, with data like this, there are many things that we need to consider. One consideration is that, should the data continue to trend the way it is, particularly in survival, this opens a door for potential discussions around a pathway for ACCELERATED APPROVAL. At this point, all options are being considered, with Peregrine working towards the most efficient path forward from a regulatory standpoint." Q&A: "…all in all, I think the data is extremely compelling and I think it makes a really good case. Certainly, I think, I've seen a lot of Ph2 & Ph3 data, and this is as compelling Ph2 data as I've ever seen. So, I'm very comfortable proposing a meeting with the FDA for Q4'12."

And on top of that, I'd like to point out that our primary goal is in 2nd-line NSCLC, which is a disease with very low response rates in general (10% or 11%), and what we're expecting to show there is a real increase ultimately in survival.

And that creates a vast number of opportunities, everything from immunocytokines, which we're currently evaluating as part of our UC Discovery grant work, all the way to targeting nanoparticles, in which you could basically take these nanoparticles, load them with different antivirals depending on the particular type of antiviral indication, and specifically deliver your drugs to the infected cells, reducing the toxicity of the agent and taking advantage of our technology platform. And, there's actually interest in all of those from both funding agencies as well as potential partners down the road.

…Dr. Thorpe, "This study shows that the immunosuppressive effects of PS exposed on apoptotic tumor cells can be reversed by PS-targeting antibodies, specifically by reversing the suppression of DC maturation caused by the exposed PS. This finding is important since reactivation of the immune system after the primary tumor has been removed is a critical line of defense in fighting cancer recurrence. Additionally, we showed that PS-targeting antibodies have the ability to confer tumor-specific immunity, which could lead to the future development of new cancer vaccine regimens."

3-14-11: Dr. Thorpe discusses PS IMAGING in Conf. Call: http://tinyurl.com/4p4hqr5
…Dr. Thorpe: "The quality of the images is quite extraordinary. The antibody homes to tumor blood vessels beautifully in all tumors that we've seen with really very, very little of a staining seen in other tissues, and that's just what you'd like to see in a diagnostic - we are looking at that very seriously. And also, that binding is correlated to response, both with radiotherapy & chemotherapy. So again, we have the possibility of making a diagnostic that would be predictive of response. We are evaluating that possibility at this time... Duramycin binds PE; binding PE expands our coverage of our broad aminophospholipid-targeting platform, so it really dovetails very beautifully with the existing antibody portfolios. It's expanding our desire to explore different phospholipids as potential targets for therapy & diagnosis… PE is phosphatidylethanolamine and it is the brother of PS. So where PE goes, so does PS and vice versa. So the 2 lipids co-segregate normally on the inside surface of the plasma membrane, but in activated cells or apoptotic cells or stress cells, both lipids flip, and both are potential targets for therapeutics or diagnostics… Duramycin is a little peptide, that's a small molecule and has quite different qualities from an antibody in terms of penetrants. So we're intrigued to see how it plays out, too."

BETABODIES (ex: KL15), “potentially the next generation of PS-targeting cancer therapeutics” - generated by fusing domains of the PS-binding the plasma protein, B2-glycoprotein I (B2GPI), to the Fc region of mouse IgG2a. Such ‘betabodies’ potentially have the following advantages: they bind directly to PS and do not require a cofactor protein (B2GPI) for binding; they can be made fully human; they are smaller in size (100 vs. 250 KDa); and they have slower blood clearance rates (half-life of ~5days vs. Bavi’s ~1day).

However in these specific studies, we weren't able to achieve an adequate dose response correlation to support advancing the program to the next stage. In no way does this dampen our enthusiasm for bavituximab and the PS-targeting platform for infectious diseases, where we believe there is still significant unrealized potential."

BACKGROUND ON 3G4/BAVITUXIMAB(formerly Tarvacin):
Thorpe 10-25-04 SHM Presentation: "Understanding Tarvacin", incl. his first-ever public comments about Tarvacin's ANTI-VIRAL capabilities:
"OK, this is Tarvacin.. the cleanest tumor vessel marker of which we are aware.. If you look here at the 3G4 slide, you'll see, most remarkably, that it's absolutely chock full with macrophages; they're beginning to outnumber the tumor cells... . So, the conclusions with Tarvacin are that it has a unique mechanism of action, there's nothing else like it out there; it homes specifically to tumor blood vessels and induces white blood cells to attack the tumor."
Dr. Thorpe's APT (AntiPS/3G4/BAVITUXIMAB patent app #20040161429 (pub. USPO 8-19-04):
"Compositions for treating Viral Infections using Immunoconjugates to Aminophospholipids": http://tinyurl.com/6pdny
 "the 3G4 antibody has enormous potential as a broad spectrum anti-viral agent."
 "...The inhibitory activities of 3G4 on cell division, angiogenesis, tumor growth & viral infectivity, taken together with lack of apparent toxicity, show broad therapeutic indications for this antibody, including in the treatment of angiogenic disorders, cancer, diabetes and viral infections."
 "the anti-viral methods and uses of the invention are suitable for treating all viruses... as exemplified by treating CMV, RSV, arenavirus and HIV infections, and the diseases hepatitis, influenza, pneumonia, Lassa fever and AIDS."
 "The 3G4 antibody has also been administered to monkeys in safety studies and no side effects have been observed."
Thorpe's Aug03-Jan08 $1.68mm NIH/NIAID Grant for research using PPHM's APTs (Anti-PS/3G4) as "Novel Anti-Viral Agents for Treating Lassa Fever":
Thorpe: "We are developing drugs to use against Lassa fever that operate on a new principle in virology. They exploit the fact that viruses coat themselves with an outer membrane where some of the lipids are inside-out. The drugs direct our immune responses to the inside-out components of the viral membrane, or envelope. These drugs potentially could be effective against numerous viruses that have similar outer membranes… We have raised mabs to PS and other anionic phospholipids that block the spread of several viruses to uninfected cells in vitro, essentially completely. The phospholipids that they recognize have the same structure & cellular distribution in different mammalian species, simplifying the transition from experimental animals into humans. The antibodies are not toxic to mice, even when administered in high doses for prolonged periods of time."
