RandyW Posted August 26, 2007 Share Posted August 26, 2007 PARIS (Thomson Financial) - Sanofi-Aventis and Regeneron Pharmaceuticals Inc have begun two phase 3 trials of a jointly-developed drug on patients with prostate cancer and non-small cell lung cancer. Aflibercept is an anti-angiogenic agent targeting Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor (VEGF). It is designed to be used in conjunction with chemotherapy regimens. The two trials will be double-blind and placebo-controlled, Regeneron said. Sanofi-Aventis (nyse: SNY - news - people ) will provide an update of the broad-based clinical development programme planned for the drug as well as further details on the trials at its research and development day on September 17. Sanofi-Aventis said in June it would start seeking regulatory approval as early as next year to market the drug. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
