MorphoSys Announces Presentation of Clinical Data on Proprietary Blood Cancer Programs at Upcoming EHA 2018 Conference
MorphoSys AG (FSE: MOR; Prime Standard Segment; TecDAX; Nasdaq: MOR; OTC: MPSYY) today announced the publication of two abstracts on its proprietary hemato-oncological drug candidates MOR208 and MOR202 submitted to the 23rd European Hematology Association (EHA) Annual Meeting, to be held in Stockholm/Sweden from June 14-17, 2018.
In a poster presentation, first clinical data from the exploratory phase 2 COSMOS trial with the Fc-engineered CD19 antibody MOR208 in combination with idelalisib in chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) and small lymphocytic lymphoma (SLL), after discontinuation of an ibrutinib therapy, will be presented. In an oral presentation, updated maturing data from a phase 1/2a study with the CD38 antibody MOR202 alone and in combination with pomalidomide or lenalidomide in relapsed/refractory multiple myeloma will be presented.
“We are pleased that clinical data from trials investigating our proprietary antibody programs MOR208 and MOR202 in indications with high medical need were selected for presentation at the upcoming EHA conference,” commented Dr. Malte Peters, Chief Development Officer of MorphoSys AG.
