Third Quarter Highlights
- Progenics reoriented its research and development focus on oncology. The Company is allocating additional financial and personnel resources to its clinical-stage PSMA ADC program and pre-clinical development work on multiplex phosphoinositide 3-kinase (PI3K) inhibitors and is seeking to in-license or acquire complementary opportunities in the oncology field. The Company is looking to out-license existing programs not within its oncology focus.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administrationaccepted for filing a supplemental New Drug Application (sNDA) seeking approval for subcutaneous RELISTOR to treat opioid-induced constipation in patients with chronic, non-cancer pain. The FDAissued a PDUFA action date of April 27, 2012.
- The Company announced positive preliminary data from a phase 1 study of PSMA ADC in 26 patients who have received doses ranging from 0.4 mg/kg to 2.0 mg/kg. PSMA ADC has generally been well tolerated at doses up to and including 2.0 mg/kg and a study cohort at a dose of 2.2 mg/kg has commenced.
Angelo W. Lovallo, Jr. was named Treasurer of the Company and David E. Martin, Esq.was appointed General Counsel.

Phase 3 Study Design for Oral Methylnaltrexone
The phase 3 study is a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial, which has completed enrollment of non-cancer pain patients experiencing OIC. Patients receive either placebo or one of three doses of oral methylnaltrexone. Following a two-week screening period, study participants are dosed once daily for four weeks, continuing treatment on an as needed basis for eight additional weeks. The primary efficacy endpoint of the study is the proportion of subjects with a rescue-free bowel movement within four hours of receiving oral methylnaltrexone during the four-week blinded period.
Important Safety Information for RELISTOR
RELISTOR is indicated for the treatment of opioid-induced constipation (OIC) in patients with advanced illness who are receiving palliative care, when response to laxative therapy has not been sufficient. Use of RELISTOR beyond four months has not been studied.
RELISTOR is contraindicated in patients with known or suspected mechanical gastrointestinal obstruction. If severe or persistent diarrhea occurs during treatment, advise patients to discontinue therapy with RELISTOR and consult their physician. Use of RELISTOR has not been studied in patients with peritoneal catheters.
Safety and efficacy of RELISTOR have not been established in pediatric patients.
Rare cases of gastrointestinal (GI) perforation have been reported in advanced illness patients with conditions that may be associated with localized or diffuse reduction of structural integrity in the wall of the GI tract (i.e., cancer, peptic ulcer, Ogilvie's syndrome). Perforations have involved varying regions of the GI tract (e.g., stomach, duodenum, colon).
Use RELISTOR with caution in patients with known or suspected lesions of the GI tract. Advise patients to discontinue therapy with RELISTOR and promptly notify their physician if they develop severe, persistent, and/or worsening abdominal symptoms.
The most common adverse reactions reported with RELISTOR compared with placebo in clinical trials were abdominal pain (28.5% vs. 9.8%), flatulence (13.3% vs. 5.7%), nausea (11.5% vs. 4.9%), dizziness (7.3% vs. 2.4%), diarrhea (5.5% vs. 2.4%), and hyperhidrosis (6.7% vs. 6.5%).
