Möchte hier einen neuen thread zu XOMA und DCGN
(beides Nasdaq-Biotope) starten, nachdem der alte
zu lang wurde und gegen Ende ja doch nur noch
Monologe von mir enthielt.
Vielleicht kommt ja hier etwas Austausch zustande.

Neues habe ich im Augenblick nicht zu vermelden,
außer daß ich heute nochmal aufgestockt habe.
Konnte dem XOMA-Sonderangebot heute nicht widerstehen.

Xoma: Not Encouraged by All the Hoopla
24 comments  |  by: Edward Stevenson December 27, 2010  | about: XOMA    

Last week XOMA's (XOMA) stock price rose roughly 200% and 54.7M shares traded hands. Excitement brewed over the company's multi-purpose drug, XOMA 052, which investors anticipate the company will release positive phase 2 results on early in the upcoming year. Conversely, I'm not so encouraged by all the hoopla.

It brings tears to my eyes knowing that some investors have been given a false sense of hope and security in light of the rising stock price. But don't count on that union. Arena Pharmaceuticals (ARNA) rose in anticipation of a FDA approval of their weight-loss drug, Lorcaserin, in these past summer months. Then in September shares plummeted shedding all of the previous months' gains in less than a week.

XOMA Ltd. (XOMA) has a reputation for misbehaving - which may explain why its Chief Executive was runner up to the least-distinguished biotech CEO of the year award. Elsewhere, XOMA has been called a “one-trick pony". But more concerning is that both claims can be substantiated and then some. Last quarter, for instance, XOMA had total revenues of $10.9M versus $27.4M during the comparable period in 2009 (1). Concurrently, Operating expenses rose 33% year-over-year, mainly due to the rise in research and development costs. However, the troubling part is not that revenues have slid or that expenses have substantially risen or that operating activities alone burned through $43M in cash, but whom XOMA will turn to in order to finance ongoing operations.

XOMA Ltd. raised more than $40M selling paper to investors in the first three quarters of 2010. You can bet they'll be at it again in the upcoming periods. Just earlier this year the company facilitated a 1-15 reverse stock-split after diluting their share price into the pennies. And now their future largely depends on a development-stage drug that will drain tens, if not hundreds, of millions of dollars from investors' pockets before it is even given a chance at being commercialized.

In 20+ years of operations, XOMA Ltd. has incurred an accumulated deficit of more than $835M. Not one of those years did the company show a profit or so much as breakeven. If there is one trend that has remained consistent with Xoma Ltd. throughout their years, it's been the careless expenditure of shareholder monies.

So I ask, what could have accounted for the discrepancy between the 21.78M shares floating and the 54.7M that actually traded hands? Was it a wave of heroic day traders or devilish short sellers? I think not. To quote Benjamin Graham, "watch out for OPM (Other Peoples' Money) addicts".

XOMA and Servier Sign Development and Commercialization Agreement for XOMA 052

Conference Call and Webcast at 8:30 am ET Today

BERKELEY, Calif., Jan. 4, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- XOMA Ltd. (Nasdaq:XOMA), a leader in the discovery and development of therapeutic antibodies, and Les Laboratoires Servier (Servier), France's largest privately-held pharmaceutical company, today announced the signing of a regional agreement to jointly develop and commercialize XOMA 052, XOMA's anti-inflammatory drug candidate, in multiple indications. XOMA 052 is designed to inhibit the pro-inflammatory cytokine interleukin-1 beta that is believed to be a primary trigger of pathologic inflammation in multiple diseases. Key elements of this agreement include:

* XOMA will receive approximately $35 million upfront, up to approximately $470 million in milestone payments and tiered royalties up to a mid-teens percentage rate.

* XOMA retains development and commercialization rights for Behcet's uveitis and other inflammatory and oncology indications in U.S. and Japan. Servier receives similar rights in the rest of the world.

* Servier will fund the first $50 million of XOMA 052 development expenses and 50% of further expenses for the Behcet's uveitis indication. XOMA 052 is expected to advance into Phase 3 development in Behcet's uveitis in 2011.

* Servier will fund development for diabetes and cardiovascular disease indications in exchange for worldwide rights.

* XOMA retains an option to reacquire the development and commercialization rights to the diabetes and cardiovascular indications in the U.S. and Japan by paying an option fee and partial reimbursement of incurred development expenses. If XOMA reacquires these rights, it has the ability to license them to one or more third parties.

"This is an important collaboration for XOMA as we gain a seasoned partner in Servier and it allows us to accelerate XOMA 052 into Phase 3 development this year in Behcet's uveitis, an orphan indication for which we have reported positive proof-of-concept results. The agreement advances our strategy of focusing on opportunities in the U.S. where we can directly participate in the development and commercialization of our novel products," said Steven B. Engle, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, XOMA. "This agreement substantially increases our cash resources while reducing future cash requirements, provides a pathway to commercialization of XOMA 052 in the near term, and supports development in diabetes and cardiovascular disease while maintaining our ability to participate in these programs. As a result, we can accelerate development of a new approach that targets the inflammatory cause of multiple diseases and has the potential to dramatically improve the lives of patients."

"Servier is a world-class pharmaceutical company with 2010 revenues of 3.7 billion euros and a long history of successful innovation and collaborations, global franchises in diabetes and cardiovascular disease and established operations in the geographical regions where Behcet's disease is most prevalent," Mr. Engle continued. "They are an ideal partner to maximize the clinical and commercial potential of XOMA 052."

"XOMA 052 gives us a later-stage asset to develop for diabetes and cardiovascular diseases, which are both areas of strength for us, as well as for rare diseases," said Emmanuel Canet, M.D., Ph.D., Servier's President, Research and Development. "With this therapeutic antibody designed to inhibit interleukin-1 beta we are reinforcing our strategy in the field of biologics and developing novel approaches aimed at treating severe diseases. We are especially eager to shepherd the development of XOMA 052 for the treatment of patients with Behcet's uveitis, a population that has very few options and may face eventual blindness."

In 2011, XOMA and Servier expect to hold discussions with multiple regulatory agencies to initiate Phase 3 studies of XOMA 052 in Behcet's uveitis, a debilitating ophthalmic inflammatory condition that often leads to vision-threatening complications including blindness. XOMA 052 has already received orphan drug designations for Behcet's disease from regulators in the U.S. and European Union, which support an expedited path to commercialization. XOMA expects to release results from two ongoing Phase 2 studies in patients with Type 2 diabetes in the first quarter of 2011.

XOMA will receive approximately $35 million in an upfront payment consisting of $15 million and a 15 million euro loan, which does not have to be repaid until 2016. Regarding milestone payments, if XOMA reacquires diabetes and cardiovascular rights in the U.S. and Japan, then the milestone payments could be up to $470 million as mentioned above. If XOMA does not reacquire these rights, then the milestone payments could be up to $800 million. XOMA will be responsible for XOMA 052 manufacturing throughout clinical development and launch and anticipates being a long-term manufacturer. This adds to the company's potential profit participation during the life of the commercial product.

Investor Conference Call

XOMA will host a conference call and webcast to discuss its agreement with Servier today, January 4, 2011, at 8:30 am ET. The webcast can be accessed via the Investors section of XOMA's website at and will be available for replay until close of business on March 31, 2011.


Behcet's (pronounced beh-CHETS) disease causes chronic inflammation of the blood vessels, or vasculitis, among other complications. Uveitis is a vasculitis of the blood vessels in the eye which can be vision-threatening. Behcet's uveitis is one of the most severe forms of uveitis which can lead to blindness and affects approximately 50% of Behcet's disease patients.

XOMA estimates that there are 250,000 patients diagnosed with Behcet's disease worldwide including 20,000 in the U.S. Onset of the disease occurs most commonly in adults in their twenties, thirties and forties, and is typically more severe in men.

Without immediate treatment, major exacerbations of Behcet's uveitis may lead to retinal detachment, macular edema, vitreous hemorrhage, glaucoma and eventual blindness. The effects of these exacerbations on vision are cumulative. Patients often experience multiple exacerbations per year, requiring treatment to control the frequency and severity of attacks of this chronic disease. No therapies are approved in the U.S. to treat Behcet's disease. It is treated with corticosteroids and immunosuppressive drugs, which can have significant side effects, including diabetes and hypertension, and can contribute to other eye diseases like glaucoma and the formation of cataracts. These drugs also can adversely affect the neurological, pulmonary, gastrointestinal, hematological and cardiovascular systems.

XOMA has completed a successful proof-of-concept Phase 2 trial of XOMA 052 in patients with Behcet's uveitis. As previously reported, all seven patients displayed rapid reduction of intraocular inflammation and improvement in visual acuity or other ophthalmic measures after a single treatment with XOMA 052 and following discontinuation of immunosuppressive drugs such as cyclosporine and/or azathioprine. Follow-up results demonstrated that each of the five patients re-treated with XOMA 052 due to a recurring uveitis exacerbation responded again to XOMA 052 treatment and maintained their response for several months. The drug was well-tolerated, and no drug-related adverse events were reported.

XOMA 052 and Interleukin-1 Inhibition

XOMA 052 is a potent monoclonal antibody with the potential to improve the treatment of patients with a wide variety of inflammatory diseases and other diseases including cancer. XOMA 052 binds strongly to interleukin-1 beta (IL-1 beta), a pro-inflammatory cytokine involved in Behcet's uveitis, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, rheumatoid arthritis, gout, and other auto-inflammatory diseases. IL-1 is a well-validated therapeutic target, with three marketed IL-1 inhibitors that have been used by more than 200,000 patients overall. By binding to IL-1 beta, XOMA 052 inhibits the activation of the IL-1 receptor, thereby preventing the cellular signaling events that produce inflammation.

To date, nearly 600 patients have been enrolled in XOMA 052 clinical trials. XOMA has completed enrollment in two Phase 2 clinical trials in patients with Type 2 diabetes and expects three month interim results from the Phase 2a trial in the first half of January 2011 and six month results from the Phase 2b trial in this quarter. The Phase 2 trials follow a successful 98 patient Phase 1 program in Type 2 diabetes in which XOMA 052 was shown to be well-tolerated, demonstrated evidence of biological activity in diabetes measures and cardiovascular biomarkers, and had a half-life that may provide convenient dosing of once per month or less frequently. The company has also demonstrated the potential for XOMA 052 in in vivo models of cardiovascular disease and in an in vitro model using human myeloma, or plasma cell cancer, cells.

XOMA 052 Phase 2b Top Line Results: Glucose Control Not Demonstrated, Positive Anti-inflammatory Effect, Cardiovascular Biomarke
Intraday Stock Chart

Click Here for more Xoma Charts.

XOMA Ltd. (Nasdaq:XOMA), a leader in the discovery and development of therapeutic antibodies, today announced that its Phase 2b trial of XOMA 052 in Type 2 diabetes patients did not achieve the primary endpoint of reduction in glycosylated hemoglobin, or HbA1c, after six monthly treatments with XOMA 052 compared to placebo. Biological activity of XOMA 052 supporting its potential in cardiovascular disease was observed with highly significant (p <  or = 0.0005) decreases in C-reactive protein, or CRP, a biomarker for the risk of heart attack, stroke and other cardiovascular diseases, in all dose groups versus placebo. In addition, statistically significant (p<0.05) improvements in high-density lipoprotein, or "good" cholesterol were observed in two of four XOMA 052 dose groups versus placebo. XOMA 052 was well-tolerated in this trial, with no serious drug-related adverse events and a safety profile consistent with previous trials. XOMA is developing XOMA 052 in collaboration with Servier.

"While this trial did not demonstrate glycemic improvement, the potent anti-inflammatory effects and continued positive safety profile reinforce our Phase 3 development program for Behcet's uveitis, which we anticipate starting this year pending completion of regulatory agency discussions. We are also encouraged by the improvements in C-reactive protein and 'good' cholesterol, which support the further evaluation of XOMA 052 in cardiovascular disease and other inflammatory indications," said Steven B. Engle, XOMA's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer.

"Pending completion of the ongoing Phase 2a trial and analyses of both studies, we will be working with XOMA to determine the next steps in the XOMA 052 diabetes program. In parallel, we anticipate initiating the Phase 3 program in Behcet's uveitis this year. We also expect to take XOMA 052 into clinical development in cardiovascular disease in 2012," said Isabelle Tupinon-Mathieu, M.D., Head of Therapeutic Research and Development, Servier.

Phase 2b Trial Top Line Results

The randomized, placebo-controlled dose-ranging Phase 2b trial enrolled 421 patients at multiple sites in the United States during 2010. Eligible patients had Type 2 diabetes and were receiving metformin monotherapy, the standard of care for initial treatment of diabetes. Patients were randomized to receive one of four XOMA 052 doses or placebo monthly over six months via subcutaneous administration. The primary endpoint of the study was the change in HbA1c levels from baseline compared to placebo at six months.

Baseline characteristics were similar between the XOMA 052 and placebo groups. At study entry, the mean CRP was 4.8 mg/L and 4.2 mg/L in the XOMA 052 and placebo groups, respectively. Mean HbA1c was 7.8% for the XOMA 052-treated patients and 7.7% for placebo-treated patients. Mean duration of Type 2 diabetes was approximately six years in both groups.

At six months, all XOMA 052 doses had reductions in CRP, with adjusted mean percent changes from baseline that were highly significant compared to placebo with p-values (adjusted for multiple comparisons) at 0.0005 or less. Consistent with prior XOMA 052 studies, the median reductions in this trial were 33% to 54% in the four dose groups, compared with zero reduction for placebo.

In addition, despite the fact that more than half of the patients were receiving lipid-lowering medication, XOMA 052-treated patients demonstrated statistically significant increases in high-density lipoprotein, or "good" cholesterol, in two of the four XOMA 052 dose groups versus placebo (p<0.05).

The safety and tolerability profile in this population was consistent with previous XOMA 052 clinical trials, and there were no serious drug-related adverse events. The most common adverse events were upper respiratory infections with no differences between XOMA 052 and placebo groups. There were no reported opportunistic infections.

Bei XOMA Ltd. (WKN: 871239) könnten sich heute  exzellente Tradingchancen ergeben. Der Aktienkurs des US-Pharmaunternehmens ist nach einer schlechten News von über 5 US-Dollar nachbörslich bis auf etwa 3 US-Dollar gefallen. Entsprechend werden die Aktien derzeit in Deutschland gehandelt. Die News rechtfertigt in unseren Augen keinen derartig hohen Abschlag. Wir vermuten einen hohen Kursdruck zum Handelsstart in den USA, bevor eine starke Erholung erfolgen könnte. Intraday-Gewinne im Bereich von 15-25% erscheinen uns gut möglich. Bei der Hirsch AG hat sich die Lage unserer Ansicht nach nicht verändert. Wir bleiben sehr optimistisch, weisen aber nach wie vor ausdrücklich auf das Risiko eines Investments hin!
