Immunomedics Confirms Funding of Department of Defense Clinical Trial Grant for Milatuzumab in Lupus

A biopharmaceutical company primarily focused on the development of monoclonal antibody-based products for the targeted treatment of cancer, autoimmune and other serious diseases, today announced the beginning of a three-year grant from the Department of Defense (DOD) totaling more than $1.6 million to evaluate milatuzumab as a treatment of patients with lupus.

Funded by the Peer Reviewed Medical Research Program of the DOD, the clinical trial will evaluate milatuzumab, our proprietary humanized anti-CD74 antibody, in a subcutaneous formulation in patients with lupus. Approximately 30 lupus patients will be recruited at the Cedars Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, CA, under the direction of Dr. Daniel J. Wallace, the principal clinical investigator of this project.
