ASCO 2018

During a session at the 2018 American Society of Clinical Oncology Annual Meeting, held June 1-5 in Chicago, Illinois, researchers gave a glimpse into new directions in oncology biosimilars through providing results on several studies testing the safety, efficacy, and usage of different biosimilars.
During the 2018 American Society of Clinical Oncology Annual Meeting, researchers published new findings on the use of rituximab in mantle cell lymphoma (MCL) as well as the outcomes of patients who relapse early after treatment with rituximab for diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL).
The proposed biosimilar, TAB008, under development by TOT Biopharm, was compared with the reference bevacizumab in a randomized, double-blind, single-dose study conducted in 99 healthy adult males.
Clinical practice guidelines recommend the use of granulocyte-colony stimulating factor (G-CSF) therapies, including the long-acting pegfilgrastim (Neulasta), for the prevention of febrile neutropenia in patients receiving myelosuppressive chemotherapy. Real-world data, published in an abstract concurrent with the 2018 American Society of Clinical Oncology Annual Meeting, demonstrate the feasibility of administering pegfilgrastim via an on-body device.
Research published in conjunction with the 2018 American Society of Clinical Oncology Annual Meeting presented new findings on the use granulocyte-colony stimulating factor agents in treating febrile neutropenia (FN) and in peripheral stem cell mobilization.
During the 2018 American Society of Clinical Oncology's Annual Meeting, researchers presented findings on 3 biosimilar trastuzumab products: Samsung Bioepis’ SB3, Agmen’s ABP 980, and Biocad’s Herticad.
 
The 2018 American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) Annual Meeting was hosted from June 1-5, 2018 in Chicago, Illinois, and was directed toward the world’s top oncology professionals. Those in attendance are sure to gain invaluable insight from some of the most respected experts in the field, and The Center for Biosimilars is providing readers who were unable to travel to Chicago with the most up-to-date information regarding new data from clinical trials evaluating new and emerging therapies, as well as ongoing controversies.
