American Society of Hematology 59th Annual Meeting and Exposition

A recent study found that Cinfa Biotech’s proposed pegfilgrastim biosimilar, B12019, has similar pharmacodynamics (PD) and immunogenicity to the reference Neulasta.
Patients can be switched from reference rituximab (MabThera) to biosimilar rituximab (Truxima) without reverting to slower infusion rates, according to a new study.
A new study, conducted by Linglong Zou, PhD, and colleagues, evaluates the immunogenicity of tbo-filgrastim in patients receiving chemotherapy for solid and hematologic malignancies.
At the American Society of Hematology’s 59th Annual Meeting and Exposition in Atlanta, Georgia, Sanjeeev Balu, PhD, will present results of a study that examines expanded access to the drug obinutuzumab (Gazyva) made possible on a budget-neutral basis through savings obtained from using biosimilar filgrastim-sndz (Zarxio).
Since Novex’s commercial launch, the first national pharmacovigilance plan for a biosimilar monoclonal antibody has been implemented, and data from this post-marketing surveillance show that, in terms of tolerability, this biosimilar has a similar safety profile to that of the reference product.
On Sunday, December 10, at the American Society of Hematology’s 59th Annual Meeting and Exposition in Atlanta, Georgia, Noah Federman, MD, will present research from a phase 2 study on the use of subcutaneous tbo-filgrastim (Granix) in pediatric patients with solid tumors who are undergoing chemotherapy.
On Saturday, December 9, at the American Society of Hematology’s 59th Annual Meeting and Exposition in Atlanta, Georgia, Scott Huntington, MD, MPH, will present his research team’s findings that the receipt of lymphoma care in the community-based setting is associated with guideline-discordant use of rituximab.
