Ipsen showcases studies at the ESMO 2019 Congress highlighting progress in new approaches for difficult-to-treat cancers

Presentations demonstrate promising advances for the treatment of advanced hepatocellular carcinoma, metastatic pancreatic cancer and neuroendocrine tumors

 

Paris (France), 26 September 2019 – Ipsen (Euronext: IPN; ADR: IPSEY) today announced that clinical trials with cabozantinib (Cabometyx®) in a variety of tumor types will be the subject of four presentations at the European Society for Medical Oncology (ESMO) Congress 2019 in Barcelona, Spain, from 27 September – 1 October 2019.

 

“At Ipsen, our mission is to accelerate the discovery, development and commercialization of new medicines. So, we’re delighted to be sharing new studies at ESMO that demonstrate potential advances in treatment for select cancers where few effective therapeutic options exist, so no patient is left behind,” said Dr. Alexandre Lebeaut, Ipsen’s Executive Vice President, R&D and Chief Scientific Officer.

 

Key studies including Ipsen medicines to be presented at ESMO 2019 Congress:

  • An overview of the trial design of the pivotal Phase III (COSMIC-312) study of cabozantinib (C) in combination with atezolizumab vs sorafenib in patients with advanced hepatocellular carcinoma (aHCC) who have not received prior systemic anticancer therapy
  • A new QTWiST analysis of the Phase III CELESTIAL study looking at the effect of second-line cabozantinib on health states for patients with aHCC after sorafenib

 

“While we’re making strides in our own research programs for other hard-to-treat-cancers, like small cell lung cancer and pancreatic adenocarcinoma, our complementary work with partners is catalyzing and broadening our efforts to fast-track new approaches for patients with significant unmet needs,” said Bartek Bednarz, Ipsen, Senior Vice-President, Oncology Franchise. “ESMO 2019 marks an important milestone for our partnership with Exelixis to further develop cabozantinib (Cabometyx®), as we have exceeded 100 joint cabozantinib-related abstracts accepted to medical congresses in our shared vision to progress the treatment for difficult-to-treat cancers.”
