YANTAI, China, May 24, 2022  /PRNewswire/ -- RemeGen Co., Ltd. (9995.HK, SHA: 688331), a commercial-stage biotechnology company, today announced that three abstracts for disitamab vedotin (RC48) have been selected for poster discussions by the 2022 American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) Annual Meeting that will be held from June 3 to June 7 2022 in Chicago, USA. Disitamab vedotin is a novel antibody-drug conjugate (ADC) directed to HER2 and it has been approved by National Medical Products Administration (NMPA) in China for the treatment of gastric and urothelial cancers.  

The clinical studies described in the three abstracts were conducted or sponsored by RemeGen and will be presented at a poster discussion session, constituting a topical discussion on the treatment of metastatic urothelial carcinoma (mUC). The session is scheduled on June 4 and will include all related clinical studies to be presented by RemeGen. These abstracts highlight the emerging role of disitamab vedotin in the potential management of mUC.

In abstract #4518, entitled, "Preliminary Results of a Phase Ib/II Combination Study of Disitamab Vedotin in Combination with Toripalimab in Locally Advanced or Metastatic Urothelial Carcinoma," investigators report updated data that continue to demonstrate a manageable safety profile and promising efficacy of disitamab vedotin. The earlier data from this study were previously presented at the 2022 ASCO Genitourinary Cancers Symposium (ASCO-GU) held earlier this year in February 2022.

The other two abstracts are entitled, "A phase II study of RC48-ADC in HER2-negative patients with locally advanced or metastatic urothelial carcinoma" and "RC48-ADC for Metastatic Urothelial Carcinoma with HER2-positive: combined analysis of RC48-C005 and RC48-C009 trials." These studies further highlight the potential clinical efficacy of disitamab vedotin in mUC patients.

"We are delighted that our research has been recognized and selected for the upcoming ASCO meeting," said Fang Jianmin, CEO and Chief Scientific Officer of RemeGen. "RemeGen has performed a number of clinical trials for disitamab vedotin in the treatment of HER2-expressing advanced gastric, urothelial, and breast cancers. Disitamab vedotin has been granted Breakthrough Therapy Designation by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for use in second-line treatment of patients with HER2-expressing, locally advanced or metastatic urothelial cancer (mUC) who have previously received platinum-containing chemotherapy. The data presented in this ASCO meeting will provide additional support that disitamab vedotin may play a unique role in meeting unmet medical needs for the patients of urothelial cancer."

In China, disitamab vedotin has been granted conditional approval by the NMPA for locally advanced or metastatic urothelial carcinoma after at least 2 prior systemic chemotherapy treatments, opening a new chapter in the treatment of urothelial carcinoma in China. In addition, disitamab vedotin has been included in the Chinese Society of Clinical Oncology (CSCO) guidelines in 2021.

About Disitamab Vedotin (RC48)

Disitamab vedotin (RC48) is an investigational anti-HER2 antibody-drug conjugate targeting prevalent cancers with significant unmet medical needs and is the first domestically developed ADC to receive marketing approval in China. The drug was granted conditional marketing approval in June 2021 by the National Medical Products Administration (NMPA) in China to treat locally advanced or metastatic gastric cancer. In the same month, the company submitted an Investigational New Drug (IND) application for the treatment of HER2-expressing advanced or metastatic urothelial carcinoma with disitamab vedotin. In 2021, RemeGen and Seagen Inc. entered into an exclusive worldwide licensing agreement to develop and commercialize disitamab vedotin.

The company is implementing a differentiated development and commercial strategy for disitamab vedotin, including (i) gastric cancer (GC), (ii) urothelial carcinoma (UC), (iii) breast cancer (BC), and (iv) other HER2-expressing cancers.
