● Clinical data not supporting further development of tasquinimod in monotherapy in heavily pretreated patients with advanced ovarian, renal cell and gastric carcinomas;
● Hepatocellular cohort continuing with results expected 2015;
● Biomarker analyses ongoing to further characterize tasquinimod mode of action.

The main objective of the study was to determine the clinical activity of tasquinimod in advanced hepatocellular (HCC), ovarian (OC), renal cell (RCC) and gastric (GC) carcinomas in patients who had progressed after standard anti-tumor therapies.  Primary endpoint was the PFS rate at a predefined time for each cohort. Secondary objectives included PFS, response rate, OS, safety, pharmacokinetics and biomarkers.

The data did not support further development of tasquinimod in monotherapy in heavily pretreated patients with advanced OC, RCC and GC. Pharmacokinetic and biomarkers analyses are ongoing. Preliminary results from the futility analysis reported sufficient clinical activity to complete the recruitment of the HCC cohort for which results are expected in 2015.

The safety profile was consistent with the known safety profile of tasquinimod in previous studies. Data from the HCC cohort was presented (Poster p-171)1 at the International Liver Cancer Association 8th Annual Conference (5 7 September 2014, Kyoto, Japan).
                                                            
1 Exploring the activity of tasquinimod, a compound with a novel mechanism of action, in patients with advanced hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), previously treated with sorafenib

About the study
The “Umbrella” trial is a Phase II, multicenter, open-label, proof of concept study of tasquinimod in patients with advanced hepatocellular (HCC), ovarian (OC), renal cell (RCC) and gastric (GC) carcinomas

About tasquinimod
Tasquinimod is a novel small molecule that targets the tumor microenvironment by binding to S100A9 and modulating regulatory myeloid cell functions, exerting immunomodulatory, anti-angiogenic and antimetastatic properties. Tasquinimod may also suppress the tumor hypoxic response, contributing to its effect on the tumor microenvironment. Today the development of tasquinimod is principally focused on the treatment of prostate cancer, but early clinical studies in other cancer indications are performed.

Ipsen Forward Looking Statements
The forward-looking statements, objectives and targets contained herein are based on the Group’s management strategy, current views and assumptions. Such statements involve known and unknown risks and uncertainties that may cause actual results, performance or events to differ materially from those anticipated herein. All of the above risks could affect the Group’s future ability to achieve its financial targets, which were set assuming reasonable macroeconomic conditions based on the information available today. Use of the words "believes," "anticipates" and "expects" and similar expressions are intended to identify forward-looking statements, including the Group’s expectations regarding future events, including regulatory filings and determinations. Moreover, the targets described in this document were prepared without taking into account external growth assumptions and potential future acquisitions, which may alter these parameters. These objectives are based on data and assumptions regarded as reasonable by the Group. These targets depend on conditions or facts likely to happen in the future, and not exclusively on historical data. Actual results may depart significantly from these targets given the occurrence of certain risks and uncertainties, notably the fact that a promising product in early development phase or clinical trial may end up never being launched on the market or reaching its commercial targets, notably for regulatory or competition reasons. The Group must face or might face competition from generic products that might translate into a loss of market share. Furthermore, the Research and Development process involves several stages each of which involves the substantial risk that the Group may fail to achieve its objectives and be forced to abandon its efforts with regards to a product in which it has invested significant sums. Therefore, the Group cannot be certain that favourable results obtained during pre-clinical trials will be confirmed subsequently during clinical trials, or that the results of clinical trials will be sufficient to demonstrate the safe and effective nature of the product concerned. There can be no guarantees a product will receive the necessary regulatory approvals or that the product will prove to be commercially successful. If underlying assumptions prove inaccurate or risks or uncertainties materialize, actual results may differ materially from those set forth in the forward-looking statements. Other risks and uncertainties include but are not limited to, general industry conditions and competition; general economic factors, including interest rate and currency exchange rate fluctuations; the impact of pharmaceutical industry regulation and health care legislation; global trends toward health care cost containment; technological advances, new products and patents attained by competitors; challenges inherent in new product development, including obtaining regulatory approval; the Group's ability to accurately predict future market conditions; manufacturing difficulties or delays; financial instability of international economies and sovereign risk; dependence on the effectiveness of the Group’s patents and other protections for innovative products; and the exposure to litigation, including patent litigation, and/or regulatory actions. The Group also depends on third parties to develop and market some of its products which could potentially generate substantial royalties; these partners could behave in such ways which could cause damage to the Group’s activities and financial results. The Group cannot be certain that its partners will fulfil their obligations. It might be unable to obtain any benefit from those agreements. A default by any of the Group’s partners could generate lower revenues than expected. Such situations could have a negative impact on the Group’s business, financial position or performance. The Group expressly disclaims any obligation or undertaking to update or revise any forward looking statements, targets or estimates contained in this press release to reflect any change in events, conditions, assumptions or circumstances on which any such statements are based, unless so required by applicable law. The Group’s business is subject to the risk factors outlined in its registration documents filed with the French Autorité des Marchés Financiers.
