    CAMBRIDGE, Mass., Nov. 12, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Checkmate Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NASDAQ:CMPI) ("Checkmate"), a clinical stage biopharmaceutical company focused on developing its proprietary technology to harness the power of the immune system to combat cancer, today announced third quarter 2021 financial results and provided a business update.

    "We are excited about the future of vidutolimod as a potential novel treatment for multiple tumor types, including melanoma and head and neck cancer. We continue to advance our clinical trials towards potential data readouts in 2022," said Alan Fuhrman, interim President and Chief Executive Officer of Checkmate.

    Recent Business Updates

    • During The Society for Immunotherapy of Cancer (SITC) 36th Annual Meeting, Dr. John Kirkwood from the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center presented a poster on the final clinical data from the Phase 1b study of vidutolimod in combination with pembrolizumab or as a monotherapy in patients with anti-PD-1 refractory melanoma.
      • Vidutolimod in combination with pembrolizumab led to an ORR of 23.5% by RECIST v1.1, a complete response rate of 7.1%, and a median duration of response of 25.2 months.
      • Vidutolimod monotherapy resulted in a 20.0% ORR by RECIST v1.1 and a median duration of response of 5.6 months.
      • The most frequent treatment-related adverse events were consistent with flu-like symptoms and injection site reactions and were most commonly Grade 1 or 2.
    • We appointed Alan Fuhrman, an experienced biotech executive and Checkmate board member, as interim President and CEO.
    • Ongoing patient recruitment activities and enrollment across our clinical trials evaluating vidutolimod, including:
      • A Phase 2 trial of vidutolimod in combination with nivolumab in anti-PD-1 refractory advanced melanoma, supported by a clinical collaboration with Bristol Myers Squibb.
      • A randomized Phase 2/3 trial of vidutolimod in combination with nivolumab vs. nivolumab monotherapy in first-line metastatic or unresectable melanoma, also supported by the clinical collaboration with Bristol Myers Squibb.
      • A Phase 2 trial of vidutolimod in combination with pembrolizumab in recurrent or metastatic squamous cell head and neck cancer.
    • Start-up activities underway for the planned expansion of the development program for vidutolimod in combination with cemiplimab in cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma and Merkel cell carcinoma, supported by a clinical collaboration with Regeneron.

    Third Quarter 2021 Financial Results

    • Research and development expenses (R&D): R&D expenses for the three months ending September 30, 2021, were $11.4 million, compared to $6.7 million for the same period in the prior year. This increase reflects higher third-party CRO and manufacturing costs directly related to the vidutolimod clinical trials, in addition to higher personnel and operating expense for the planning and execution of the clinical trials.
    • General and administration expenses (G&A): G&A expenses for the three months ending September 30, 2021, were $3.6 million, compared to $3.2 million for the same period in the prior year. This increase was primarily attributable to increases in personnel and operating expense incurred in connection with Checkmate operating as a publicly traded company.
    • Cash, cash equivalents and investments: Cash, cash equivalents and available-for-sale investments were $80.8 million as of September 30, 2021.

  3. Vidutolimod in combination with pembrolizumab demonstrated promising clinical activity in patients with PD-1 blockade-refractory melanoma with an ORR of 23.5% per RECIST v1.1

    Vidutolimod also demonstrated monotherapy activity with an ORR of 20.0% per RECIST v1.1

    CAMBRIDGE, Mass., Nov. 12, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Checkmate Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NASDAQ: CMPI) ("Checkmate"), a clinical stage biotechnology company focused on developing proprietary technology to harness the power of the immune system to combat cancer, today announced the presentation of final clinical data from the Phase 1b study, CMP-001-001 (NCT02680184), of vidutolimod, an advanced generation Toll-like receptor 9 (TLR9) agonist, in combination with pembrolizumab or…

    Vidutolimod also demonstrated monotherapy activity with an ORR of 20.0% per RECIST v1.1

    CAMBRIDGE, Mass., Nov. 12, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Checkmate Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NASDAQ: CMPI) ("Checkmate"), a clinical stage biotechnology company focused on developing proprietary technology to harness the power of the immune system to combat cancer, today announced the presentation of final clinical data from the Phase 1b study, CMP-001-001 (NCT02680184), of vidutolimod, an advanced generation Toll-like receptor 9 (TLR9) agonist, in combination with pembrolizumab or as a monotherapy at The Society for Immunotherapy of Cancer (SITC) 36th Annual Meeting taking place on November 10-14, 2021. 

    "Our ongoing investigation of vidutolimod indicates promising clinical activity for patients with PD-1 blockade-refractory melanoma," said Alan Fuhrman, interim President and Chief Executive Officer of Checkmate. Mr. Fuhrman added, "The RECIST response rates of 20% with vidutolimod monotherapy and 23.5% in combination with pembrolizumab are compelling, and the longer duration of response of 25.2 months in combination with PD-1 blockade provides a strong rationale for our ongoing development program."

    Final analysis: phase 1b study investigating intratumoral injection of Toll-like receptor 9 agonist vidutolimod ± pembrolizumab in patients with PD-1 blockade–refractory melanoma (Abstract #16269; poster #950; NCT02680184)

    On Friday, November 12, 2021, during the Virtual Poster Hall Exhibit from 7:00am – 8:30pm ET, John M. Kirkwood, M.D., Director of the Melanoma and Skin Center at UPMC Hillman Cancer Center and Usher Professor of Medicine in the Division of Dermatology and Translational Science at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine, is presenting late-breaking final clinical data from the Checkmate-sponsored clinical trial of vidutolimod, either in combination with pembrolizumab or as monotherapy.

    Final clinical data from the trial demonstrated that the combination of vidutolimod and pembrolizumab was well tolerated and resulted in an ORR of 23.5% according to Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors (RECIST) v1.1. The study treatment induced deep and durable systemic antitumor responses in patients with melanoma who previously progressed on anti-PD-1 treatments.

    "PD-1 blockade therapy has significantly improved clinical outcomes for many patients with cancer, although most patients still experience disease progression on anti−PD-1-therapy. Therapeutic alternatives for these patients are a large gap in the field, and critically needed," said Dr. Kirkwood. "With clinically meaningful tumor regression we have observed both in injected and noninjected lesions, vidutolimod's systemic effects hold the potential to enhance responsiveness and overcome resistance to immune checkpoint inhibitors. In addition, the substantially improved duration of response with the combination of vidutolimod and anti-PD-1 therapy provides strong rationale for further development of vidutolimod in combination with PD-1 blockade."

    Data were presented on 159 patients receiving combination therapy with vidutolimod and pembrolizumab. Two formulations of vidutolimod were evaluated, either polysorbate 20 at 0.01% (PS20, n=98) or x PS20 at 0.00167% (n=61). Based on the results, vidutolimod PS20 A 10 mg (schedule A) was selected as the Recommended Phase 2 Dose (RP2D) and schedule. Data were also presented on 40 patients who received vidutolimod monotherapy.

    Key highlights from these clinical data as of the data cut-off of August 17, 2021 include:

    Vidutolimod in combination with pembrolizumab

    • The best ORR by RECIST v1.1 in patients who received vidutolimod PS20 A+ pembrolizumab was 23.5% (95% CI 15.5-33.1), including 7.1% (7/98) of patients with a complete response.
    • Four additional patients who continued study therapy beyond initial disease progression achieved a partial response.
    • Vidutolimod PS20 A 10 mg (schedule A) was selected as the RP2D.
    • The Kaplan-Meier estimate for median duration of response was 25.2 months (95% CI8.7- not estimable [NE] in the 23 RECIST v1.1 responders).
    • Among responding patients, non-injected target lesions regressed by a similar magnitude to injected target lesions.
    • The most common treatment-related adverse events were chills, pyrexia, fatigue, nausea, vomiting and injection site pain.

    Vidutolimod as a monotherapy

    • In the 40 patients who received vidutolimod monotherapy, the best ORR by RECIST v1.1 was 20.0% (95% CI, 9.1-35.6).
    • The median duration of response was 5.6 months (95% CI, 3.1-NE).  
    • The most common treatment-related adverse events were chills, pyrexia, nausea, fatigue, headache, hypotension, and pruritus.
