Ipsen to Present New Data on Enhancement of Patient Care at the 16th European Neuroendocrine Tumor Society (ENETS) Annual Conference

 

Studies Demonstrate Ipsen’s Ongoing Commitment to Innovation and Improving Patient Care
in Neuroendocrine Tumors (NETs)

 

Paris (France), 28 February 2019 – Ipsen (Euronext: IPN; ADR: IPSEY) today announced that they are looking forward to revealing 17 presentations that detail their research into neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) at the 16th European Neuroendocrine Tumor Society (ENETS) Annual Conference, which is taking place in Barcelona, Spain between 6th-8th March 2019.

One of the key presentations, titled (Abstract #H14)Development of a new and improved delivery system for lanreotide autogel/depot to further enhance care for patients with NETs and acromegaly’, reports results from five separate, but complementary studies designed to inform and test enhancements to the existing Somatuline® Autogel® (lanreotide) pre-filled syringe.1

Input from patients and their caregivers, as well as nurses and other healthcare professionals, was used to design a new pre-filled syringe1 that was submitted to the European Union as a type II variation via a work-sharing procedure with HPRA (Ireland) as the reference country. Following a positive outcome of the work-sharing procedure, each member state would consider a national approval. Notable new features are modified ergonomics and handling, a needle shield removal system, an injection process with plunger support and heightened ease of use.1

 

“It is our mission to ensure patients continue to receive optimized care as they navigate the challenges of living with NETs and acromegaly,” said Sotirios Stergiopoulos, Chief Medical Officer at Ipsen. “The data we are sharing at this year’s ENETS conference underscores our commitment to understanding the patient experience and to supporting a multidisciplinary treatment approach to make treatment administration as simple as possible whether in hospital or at home.”

 

“For nurses and other healthcare practitioners treating patients with NETs or acromegaly, the value of innovation across the entire treatment landscape supports our ability to provide the best care for our patients,” said Daphne T Adelman, Clinical Nurse Specialist from Northwestern University in Chicago, U.S. and one of the authors of the study. “As a nurse who administers treatments to patients often, efficient pre-filled syringes allow me to save time and focus on patients and their needs.”

 

Also, being highlighted are results from:

 

(Abstract #H18) Tumour growth rate (TGR) to monitor growth/predict response to lanreotide autogel (LAN) use before, during and after peptide receptor radionuclide therapy (PRRT) in advanced gastroenteropancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (GEP-NETs): data from PRELUDE
