Monday, IDM Pharma, Inc. (IDMI: News, Chart, Quote ), a biopharmaceutical company, announced that follow up data from Phase 2 study of IDM-2101 indicated positive survival trend in non-small cell lung cancer, or NSCLC, patients and that the drug candidate was well tolerated.

"We continue to be encouraged by the positive trend in overall survival we are seeing in patients treated with IDM-2101. Based on the results to date, further clinical study is warranted to confirm the potential of IDM-2101 as a treatment option for patients with non-small cell lung cancer," said Minal Barve, practice director, Mary Crowley Cancer Research Center.

According to Irvine, California-based IDM Pharma, the Phase 2 trial was designed to evaluate one-year patient survival, overall survival and vaccine immunogenicity in HLA-A2 positive patients with stage IIIb, IV or recurrent non-small cell lung cancer or NSCLC.

The Phase 2 IDM-2101 study began in late 2004 and patient treatment has been completed. Long-term follow-up on overall survival is ongoing, the company added.

Timothy Walbert, President and CEO, IDM Pharma said that the study results will serve as a basis in determining an appropriate clinical pathway for this important treatment.

IDMI is trading up $0.23 or 11.00% at $2.32 on a volume of 696 thousand shares.
