Ariana’s KEM® systematic analysis of the Biochemical Response and Quality of Life improvements identified relations providing further insight into VAL401:

  • White Blood Cell Count (WBC) in 3 patients increased during the trial, indicative of increased immune system activity.
  • Multiple patients reported an improvement in pain, which on comparison to pharmacokinetic parameters was linked to high exposure to VAL401.
  • Improvement in fatigue was associated with lower exposure.
  • Patients regardless of responder status reported improvements in Quality of Life measures suggesting palliative effects of VAL401 treatment. Responders additionally observed anti-cancer (survival) benefit.
