Dendreon Releases Encouraging Long-Term Analysis of PROVENGE in Phase II STAND Study 04/11 11-Apr-14 07:13:00
07:13 AM EDT, 04/11/2014 (MT Newswires) -- Dendreon (DNDN:$2.78,00$-0.12,00-4.14%) released preliminary data Friday showing a long-term analysis of the biotechnology company's Phase II STAND study demonstrated that tumor-specific T-cell responses appear to be enhanced and sustained when its PROVENGE treatment is given after androgen deprivation therapy or ADT in patients with biochemically recurrent prostate cancer at high risk for metastases.
The STAND study is a randomized, Phase II trial that consisted of two patient study groups, one completing PROVENGE two weeks before ADT and the second receiving PROVENGE three months after the start of ADT. Preliminary results suggest enhanced cellular immune responses when PROVENGE was given after ADT, and these responses were persistent for at least 12 months and robust in both patient groups, the company said.

how long they've been dogging us !!!
sounds like fear to me. They are desperately trying to cover. They even short more to shake loose shares.

Think that means anything? I'm long DNDN and don't think Allergan is the buyer. I can't even access that website domain so it must be inactive. Maybe at one time Allergan was thinking about or talks to acquire. I think Novartis is more likely candidate with the need for their immuno brain cancer delivery system.
You have to admit it is very compelling. Revenues have to sky rocket. Imagine if results show no advantage to CHEMO and the FDA makes it a first line treatment too? Crazy stuff. Just the possibility can make this stock run emotionally.
Novartis AG (NOVN) has a promising therapy for cancer. It’s just not sure how to get it to patients easily.
The treatment is so potent that it cleared malignant cells in about 90 percent of patients facing almost certain death from the most common form of cancer in children.
The approach involves taking T cells, part of the body’s immune system, from the blood and engineering them to identify proteins on cancer cells. When returned to the patient’s bloodstream, the revamped T cells seek and destroy cancer cells. It’s so specific that a single mistake can mean death for a patient, and so turbo-charged that Novartis plans to set up a network of hospitals versed in treating the spiking fever, chills and flu-like symptoms that may come as side effects.
“The question is really if this is the right way to go at immunotherapy,” a burgeoning field of medicine that empowers the immune system to fight diseases such as cancer, Michael Leuchten, an analyst at Barclays Plc in London, said in an interview.
Cancer cells can use proteins on their surfaces as biological cloaks of invisibility to elude detection by the immune-system cells policing the body. Immunotherapies include checkpoint agents, drugs that strip away such disguises and expose cancer cells to attack; products such as Dendreon Corp. (DNDN)’s Provenge, which combines a patient’s immune cells with vaccine components in an infusion; and so-called biconjugated antibodies that help immune cells anchor themselves to cancerous ones.
Stuff zuckerberg talks about. Oh I forgot you shorted FB too!!
Can pay for it with stock that is highest ever, Cost them nothing. Trust me they are talking about it. Google has to buy them. They can't compete now with FB
