This article was originally published in Scrip
The future of Agennix looks in doubt today after its oral recombinant lactoferrin product talactoferrin alfa failed to improve overall survival in a Phase III study in advanced non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) in patients who have received at least two prior therapies. The company's hopes had been riding on a positive outcome of this trial, FORTIS-M, after the drug failed a Phase II/III study in sepsis earlier in the year (scripintelligence.com, 3 February 2012).
