Idera Pharmaceuticals  (NASDAQ:IDRA) is presenting data from the ongoing phase 2 expansion of the ILLUMINATE-204 trial investigating tilsotolimod, Idera’s intratumorally-delivered toll-like receptor 9 (TLR9) agonist, in combination with ipilimumab (Yervoy).

As quoted in the press release:

“The results from this combination are among the most promising we have seen in this challenging population of metastatic melanoma patients who have not benefited from front-line immunotherapy,” stated Douglas B. Johnson, M.D., Assistant Professor of Medicine, Clinical Director, Melanoma Research Program, Vanderbilt University Medical Center.  “In addition to the response rate, observing over 76% of patients achieving disease control is impressive for such a difficult-to-treat patient population.”

The ILLUMINATE-204 trial is comprised of two distinct patient populations, patients who are ipilimumab naïve (N=up to 40; Primary Efficacy Endpoint Population) and patients who have ipilimumab experience (N=up to 20; Secondary Efficacy Endpoint Population). Of the initial 34 patients evaluable for efficacy, evaluations 9 of 29 patients from the Primary Efficacy Endpoint Population and 2 of 5 patients from the Secondary Efficacy Endpoint Population achieved responses.
