Seattle Genetics, Inc., a biotechnology company, develops and commercializes antibody-based therapies for the treatment of cancer. The company is developing antibody-drug conjugates (ADCs), a technology designed to harness the targeting ability of antibodies to deliver cell-killing agents directly to cancer cells. Its lead product, ADCETRIS (brentuximab vedotin), is an ADC that has been approved in approximately 35 countries, including the United States, Canada, Japan, and members of the European Union for relapsed Hodgkin lymphoma (HL) and relapsed systemic anaplastic large cell lymphoma (sALCL) in collaboration with Takeda Pharmaceutical Company Limited. The company also evaluates approximately 30 ongoing clinical trials, including Phase III trials for post-transplant HL relapse prevention, relapsed CD30-positive cutaneous T-cell lymphoma, frontline HL in combination with chemotherapy, and frontline CD30-positive mature T-cell lymphoma in combination with chemotherapy, as well as in Phase I and II studies in various lymphoma and non-lymphoma indications. In addition, it is developing a pipeline of other clinical-stage ADC programs, including SGN-CD19A for CD19A-positive hematologic malignancies, SGN-CD33A in CD33-positive acute myeloid leukemia, SGN-LIV1A in LIV-1-positive breast cancer, ASG-22ME for treatment of Nectin-4-positive solid tumors, and ASG-15ME for treatment of SLITRK6-positive bladder cancer.

Seattle Genetics Inc. Presents Data from Phase 1 Clinical Trial of Antibody-Drug Conjugate (ADC) SGN-CD19A

Seattle Genetics Inc. will present interim phase 1 clinical data from SGN-CD19A, an antibody-drug conjugate (ADC) in development for the treatment of B-cell malignancies, at the American Society of Clinical Oncology. These interim phase 1 data in aggressive non-Hodgkin lymphomas presented at ASCO, along with previous phase 1 data in acute lymphoblastic leukemia, demonstrate that SGN-CD19A has encouraging antitumor activity with multiple complete remissions in a patient population with significant unmet needs. The safety profile of SGN-CD19A is generally manageable with a notable absence of significant neuropathy or bone marrow suppression, which may enable future clinical trials with novel combination regimens. Data were reported from 37 patients with relapsed or refractory aggressive B-cell non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL), including 32 patients with diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL), four patients with mantle cell lymphoma (MCL) and one patient with Grade 3 follicular lymphoma. The median age of patients was 65 years and the median number of prior systemic therapies was two, with 10 patients (27%) having received a prior autologous stem cell transplant. Among enrolled patients, 8% were primary refractory, 54% were refractory to their last treatment and 38% had relapsed following a response to their last treatment. The primary endpoints of the ongoing clinical trial are to estimate the maximum tolerated dose and to evaluate the safety of SGN-CD19A. In addition, the trial is evaluating antitumor activity, pharmacokinetics, progression-free survival and overall survival. In this dose-escalation study, patients receive a single dose of SGN-CD19A on an every 3-week basis. Key findings included: No dose limiting toxicity was observed in the first cycle for any patients. Adverse events were observed in the 6 milligrams per kilogram (mg/kg) dosing regimen after the first cycle, therefore enrollment was discontinued. The 3, 4 and 5 mg/kg cohorts are being expanded, and the trial continues to enroll. At the time of data analysis, of the 37 patients treated across all dose levels, the objective response rate observed was 30% (11 patients). Six patients (16%) achieved a complete remission, five (14%) achieved a partial remission, 13 (35%) had stable disease and 13 (35%) had progressive disease as best response. The clinical trial is ongoing with nine of the 37 patients (24%) remaining on treatment and new patients continuing to be enrolled. The most common adverse events of any grade occurring in more than 30% patients were blurred vision (51%), fatigue (38%), dry eye (35%), constipation (30%) and keratopathy (30%). Grade 3 or higher adverse events observed in two or more patients included blurred vision (six patients), keratopathy (three patients), low platelet count (three patients) and anemia (three patients).
