16 abstracts feature new data and post-hoc analyses of pivotal trials across several types of hard-to-treat cancers

TOKYO, May 13, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- Astellas Pharma Inc. (TSE: 4503, President and CEO: Naoki Okamura, "Astellas") will share new research from across its innovative portfolio of approved and investigational cancer therapies during the 2024 American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) Annual Meeting from May 31 - June 4. A total of 16 abstracts will be presented, including new data from pivotal trials supporting ongoing regulatory reviews. The volume of data being presented by Astellas reinforces its commitment to changing the course of cancer treatment through targeted therapies for hard-to-treat cancers like prostate, urothelial, and gastric/gastroesophageal junction (GEJ) cancers.

Tadaaki Taniguchi, MD, PhD, Chief Medical Officer, Astellas
"The data at ASCO demonstrate the strength and breadth of our growing oncology portfolio and provide new insights into our transformative therapies for patients living with some of the most devastating cancers. Recent regulatory achievements mean our oncology medicines are reaching more patients than ever worldwide, and we are continuing to pursue novel targets and invest in research to improve overall survival and raise quality of life."

Highlights at the 2024 ASCO Annual Meeting include:

  • Further data from the Phase 3 EV-302 trial evaluating enfortumab vedotin in combination with pembrolizumab versus chemotherapy in previously untreated locally advanced or metastatic urothelial carcinoma (la/mUC), including data in cisplatin-eligible and cisplatin-ineligible populations. These results support the combination as a landmark advancement in the care of patients with la/mUC, regardless of cisplatin eligibility, and serve as the basis of ongoing regulatory reviews by the European Medicines Agency's (EMA) Committee for Medicinal Products for Human Use (CHMP), Japan's Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare (MHLW), and the China National Medical Products Administration (NMPA).
  • Final overall survival (OS) results from the Phase 3 SPOTLIGHT study, evaluating the efficacy and safety of zolbetuximab – a first-in-class claudin (CLDN) 18.2-targeted monoclonal antibody approved by Japan's MLHW and currently in review by multiple regulatory authorities for approval worldwide. In this abstract, zolbetuximab is evaluated in combination with mFOLFOX6 (a combination chemotherapy regimen that includes oxaliplatin, leucovorin, and fluorouracil) for the first-line treatment of patients with CLDN18.2 positive, human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2)-negative, locally advanced unresectable or metastatic gastric or GEJ adenocarcinoma. These results underpin the strength of the zolbetuximab clinical data supporting the pursuit of regulatory approvals worldwide.
  • Two new post-hoc analyses of the Phase 3 EMBARK trial, which evaluated enzalutamide plus leuprolide, placebo plus leuprolide, and enzalutamide (single agent) in patients with nonmetastatic hormone- (or castration-) sensitive prostate cancer (nmHSPC or nmCSPC) with high-risk biochemical recurrence (BCR), including an oral presentation on the impact of treatment suspension on health-related quality of life and a poster presentation on sexual activity patient-reported outcomes.
