Medicenna Announces Upcoming Oral Presentations at the 2020 Society for Neuro-Oncology Annual Meeting
TORONTO and HOUSTON, Nov. 18, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Medicenna Therapeutics Corp. ("Medicenna" or “the Company") (NASDAQ: MDNA TSX: MDNA), a clinical stage immuno-oncology company, today announced that it will be presenting two on-demand oral presentations as part of the 2020 Society for Neuro-Oncology (SNO) Annual Meeting, which is being held virtually from November 19-21, 2020.
The presentations will include data and analyses from the MDNA55-05 trial, a recently completed Phase 2b trial evaluating MDNA55 in recurrent glioblastoma multiforme (rGBM) patients. Following completion of this trial and an End of Phase 2 Meeting, the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has agreed that Medicenna can conduct an innovative open-label hybrid Phase 3 trial that allows for the use of a substantial number of subjects (two-thirds) from a matched external control arm to support regulatory approval of MDNA55 for rGBM. This trial design should provide the opportunity to accelerate the timelines and reduce the costs when compared with a traditional randomized control arm.
Details of the on-demand oral presentations are below:
Abstract ID: CTIM-13
The on-demand oral presentations will be available for viewing by conference attendees online here beginning on November 19, 2020 at 9:00 AM ET. Slides from the presentations will be posted to the “Events and Presentations” page of Medicenna’s website following the conference.
