Incyte Corporation (Nasdaq: INCY) announces that more than 15 abstracts highlighting its research and development portfolio in immuno-oncology and targeted therapies will be presented at the upcoming 2017 American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) annual meeting in Chicago, Illinois from June 2-6, 2017.
Data presentations will include six abstracts from the ECHO-202/KEYNOTE-037 trial (NCT02178722), evaluating the safety and efficacy of epacadostat, Incyte’s selective IDO1 enzyme inhibitor, in combination with KEYTRUDA® (pembrolizumab), an anti-PD-1 therapy, in various tumor types (two oral presentations, three poster discussions and one poster session). KEYTRUDA is marketed by Merck (known as MSD outside the United States and Canada).
Additionally, data from ECHO-204 (NCT02327078) evaluating the safety and efficacy of epacadostat in combination with Opdivo® (nivolumab) have been accepted as an oral presentation. Bristol-Myers Squibb holds development and commercial rights to Opdivo globally except for in the Ono Pharmaceutical territories of Japan, South Korea and Taiwan.
“These abstracts highlight the depth and potential of our growing clinical development portfolio of both immuno-oncology and targeted therapies,” said Steven Stein, M.D., Chief Medical Officer, Incyte. “We are especially pleased to have new data from the ECHO-202 trial evaluating epacadostat plus pembrolizumab and initial data from the ECHO-204 trial evaluating epacadostat plus nivolumab accepted. These data contributed to our recent decisions to initiate additional pivotal Phase 3 studies with Merck and BMS.”
