Pfizer ends trials of PF-3512676 as lung cancer treatment UPDATE

LONDON (Thomson Financial) – Pfizer Inc said it has ended trials of PF-3512676 in combination with cytotoxic chemotherapy as a treatment for lung cancer.The company said this includes two Phase 3 and two Phase 2 clinical trials.Pfizer said an interim analysis of the Phase 3 trials by an independent data safety monitoring committee (DSMC) showed there was no evidence that PF-3512676 produced additional clinical efficacy over that achieved with the standard cytotoxic chemotherapy regimen alone.’The DSMC concluded that the risk-benefit profile did not justify continuation of the trials,’ the company said.Pfizer said it licensed PF-3512676 from Coley Pharmaceutical Group Inc in 2005.tf.TFN-Europe_newsdesk@thomson.comwjCOPYRIGHTCopyright AFX News Limited 2007.
