Tocagen's brain cancer treatment fails late-stage study

(Reuters) - Tocagen Inc said on Thursday its experimental treatment did not prove effective in helping patients with a type of brain cancer to live longer, in a late-stage study.

The California-based company said in the trial its lead product candidate Toca 511 & Toca FC also did not show meaningful superiority in secondary goals compared to standard of care treatment.
