Sanofi to showcase data from its transformative oncology pipeline at 2021 ASCO Meeting
- Early clinical data for investigational oral selective estrogen receptor (SERD), amcenestrant, show potential to become a new endocrine backbone therapy in ER+ HER2- breast cancer
- Data that reinforce Libtayo® (cemiplimab-rwlc) as a standard of care in advanced non-melanoma skin cancer and advanced non-small cell lung cancer, including new data in historically underrepresented patients with brain metastases
- Longer term data and new analyses for Sarclisa® (isatuximab-irfc) further strengthen efficacy profile, including for elderly patients and patients with high-risk cytogenetic abnormalities
PARIS – May 19, 2021 – New research being presented at the upcoming virtual American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) Annual Meeting from June 4-8 highlights Sanofi’s transformative science and commitment to patient care across difficult-to-treat cancers, including multiple myeloma, skin, lung and breast cancers.
“Our pipeline of innovative investigational medicines continues to expand, supporting our goal to address critical gaps in treatment options for patients with cancers of high unmet need,” says Peter C. Adamson, Global Development Head, Oncology at Sanofi. “We look forward to presenting the latest data across our oncology portfolio and pipeline in four key areas – multiple myeloma, skin cancers, lung cancers and breast cancer, including data supporting the potential for amcenestrant to become a best-in-class oral endocrine backbone therapy.”
Early clinical data for amcenestrant, our investigational oral selective estrogen receptor degrader (SERD), show potential to become a new endocrine backbone therapy in ER+ HER2- breast cancer*
- Abstract 1058: AMEERA 1: Phase 1/2 study of amcenestrant (SAR439859), an oral selective estrogen receptor (ER) degrader (SERD), with palbociclib (palbo) in postmenopausal women with ER+/human epidermal growth factor receptor 2-negative (HER2−) metastatic breast cancer (MBC)
- Abstract TPS1104: AMEERA-5: A randomized, double-blind phase 3 study of amcenestrant (SAR439859) + palbociclib versus letrozole + palbociclib for previously untreated ER+/HER2- advanced breast cancer (Trial in Progress)
