Janssen to present growing set of oncology data at the 2016 European Society for Medical Oncology (ESMO) Congress

Del

Janssen-Cilag International NV today announced data from ten company-sponsored abstracts will be presented at the 2016 ESMO Congress in Copenhagen, Denmark, on the 9th and 10th October 2016. The data feature four Janssen medicines spanning multiple disease areas including prostate, urothelial and blood cancer, and showcase Janssen’s broad portfolio in oncology and commitment to patients.

“The data to be presented at ESMO highlights the efficacy and safety profiles of Janssen treatments and also provides insights from a large, real-world prostate cancer patient population on how patients live with, and manage, their disease. Every patient with cancer will face his or her own unique journey and we are committed to helping redefine that journey. We hope that these findings will help us improve outcomes for cancer patients in the future,” said Jane Griffiths, Company Group Chairman, Janssen European, Middle East and Africa (EMEA).

Among the abstracts selected for presentation is data from the Prostate Cancer Registry, the first and largest prospective study of European patients with metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer (mCRPC).

Also in prostate cancer, a follow-up analysis from the COU-AA-302 study, investigating long-term safety of ZYTIGA® (abiraterone acetate) for the treatment of mCRPC, will be presented. In addition, the design of the TITAN and ATLAS trials will be presented; the trials will study the efficacy and safety profiles of apalutamide, a new generation androgen receptor inhibitor, in patients with newly-diagnosed mCRPC.

In bladder cancer, Phase 1 data will be presented around urothelial carcinoma (UC) examining the safety, efficacy and tolerability in patients treated with the pan-fibroblast growth factor receptor (FGFR) inhibitor erdafitinib.

Haematological malignancy data to be featured includes results from the Phase 3 CASTOR study, evaluating DARZALEX® (daratumumab) in combination with bortezomib and dexamethasone, compared to bortezomib and dexamethasone alone in patients with multiple myeloma who received one or more prior lines of therapy. This study has been published in the New England Journal of Medicine and formed the basis for recent submissions to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and European Medicines Agency (EMA), seeking to expand existing licenses for DARZALEX.1

OTEZLA® (Apremilast) Phase III Data Showed Significant Improvements in Patients with Active Behçet’s Disease with Oral Ulcers17.2.2018 21:00Pressemelding

Celgene Corporation (NASDAQ:CELG) today announced that data from the phase III RELIEF™ clinical trial of OTEZLA® (apremilast) in patients with active Behçet’s Disease with oral ulcers were presented in a late-breaking oral presentation at the 2018 American Academy of Dermatology (AAD) Annual Meeting. The results showed statistically significant reductions in oral ulcers with apremilast 30 mg twice daily (BID) versus placebo through week 12. OTEZLA (apremilast) is Celgene’s oral selective inhibitor of phosphodiesterase 4 (PDE4). Behçet’s Disease is a rare, chronic, multi-system inflammatory syndrome. Oral ulcers, the most common manifestation of Behçet’s Disease, can be disabling and have a substantial effect on quality of life. This study primarily evaluated the effect of apremilast on recurring oral ulcers in patients with active Behçet’s Disease who were previously treated with at least one topical or systemic medication. “Reducing oral ulcers, which are painful and can negatively im

CT-P13 (biosimilar infliximab) is comparable to reference infliximab and adalimumab in highly anticipated real-world study17.2.2018 08:00Pressemelding

Twelve-month data from the Personalised Anti-TNF therapy in Crohn’s disease Study (PANTS) was presented at the 13th Congress of the European Crohn’s and Colitis Organisation (ECCO). The results indicate that the clinical effectiveness, safety and immunogenicity of Celltrion Healthcare’s CT-P13 (biosimilar infliximab) in patients with Crohn’s disease (CD) is comparable to those treated with reference infliximab as well as those treated with adalimumab.1 The UK-wide, three-year prospective observational study investigated primary non-response (PNR), loss of response (LOR) and adverse drug reactions (ADR) to infliximab (reference infliximab and CT-P13) and adalimumab in 1610 CD patients. The data show comparable efficacy between CT-P13, reference infliximab and adalimumab in relation to PNR, LOR and ADR rates. In addition, at week 54, the remission rate was 39.7%, 39.0% and 32.7% for reference infliximab, CT-P13 and adalimumab treated patients, respectively.1 The PANTS study investigates
