Data at the 2022 ASCO Annual Meeting Highlight Genentech’s Continued Commitment to Innovation in Oncology and Personalized Healthcare

– Pivotal data on glofitamab, a potential first-in-class CD20xCD3 T-cell engaging bispecific antibody in heavily pre-treated patients with aggressive lymphoma, will be presented as part of our industry-leading hematology portfolio –

– Further studies exploring broad genomic testing to support informed treatment decisions for patients and advance cancer care approaches will be presented –

SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 24, 2022-- Genentech, a member of the Roche Group (SIX: RO, ROG; OTCQX: RHHBY), today announced that new data from clinical trials of 18 approved and investigational medicines across more than 20 cancer types will be presented at the 2022 American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) Annual Meeting, which will be held June 3-7, 2022. Genentech and its partners will present clinical studies across medicines, comprehensive genomic tests, and real-world data at this year’s meeting.

“At ASCO this year, progress from our portfolio, partnerships and collaborations showcase our commitment to advance innovation in cancer care,” said Levi Garraway, M.D., Ph.D., chief medical officer and head of Global Product Development. “We’re especially pleased to present data from our broad hematology portfolio, including pivotal data for glofitamab, a potential first-in-class bispecific antibody that may improve the lives of people with heavily pre-treated aggressive lymphoma.”

Focusing on improving outcomes in non-Hodgkin lymphoma

New and updated data in non-Hodgkin lymphoma will be presented at ASCO. This includes pivotal data from the Phase II NP30179 study investigating glofitamab, an investigational CD20xCD3 T-cell engaging bispecific antibody, in heavily pre-treated patients with diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL). DLBCL is an aggressive form of lymphoma, where as many as 40% of patients will relapse, at which point treatment options are limited and survival is shortened. Glofitamab is part of Genentech’s broad bispecific antibody development program, which may offer a new immunotherapy-based approach to tackle a range of blood cancers. It is being investigated in several clinical trials including the STARGLO Phase III study, evaluating glofitamab in combination with gemcitabine and oxaliplatin (GemOx) versus MabThera®/Rituxan® (rituximab) in combination with GemOx in autologous stem-cell transplant ineligible relapsed or refractory DLBCL. In addition, key findings from an analysis of the Asia subpopulation from the pivotal Phase III POLARIX study investigating Polivy® (polatuzumab vedotin) in combination with MabThera/Rituxan plus cyclophosphamide, doxorubicin and prednisone (R-CHP) in people with newly diagnosed DLBCL will be featured. Polivy plus R-CHP is the first treatment regimen to significantly improve outcomes in previously untreated DLBCL in more than 20 years, potentially transforming treatment for people with this disease.

Driving innovation in personalized cancer care

More than 20 new pieces of research from partnerships with Foundation Medicine will be presented, which continue to support innovation as well as progress in personalized cancer care. This includes new data from the Phase II Profiler02 study,* which investigates the use of a comprehensive genomic profiling testing panel from Foundation Medicine, with the aim of informing possible treatment decisions for patients based on their tumor’s unique genomic information.

Data from the imCORE network

Additionally, three abstracts from the Immunotherapy Centers Of Research Excellence (imCORE) Network will be presented at ASCO: a Phase I study** investigating autogene cevumeran (an mRNA-based individualized neoantigen-specific immunotherapy [iNeST]***) in the adjuvant setting of pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma; a data mining study** evaluating intermediate endpoints for survival in metastatic breast cancer in the real-world setting; and a study identifying mechanisms of acquired resistance to immune checkpoint blockade.**

imCORE is an academic-industry network for scientific collaboration. Established by Genentech and connecting experts from 26 leading institutions around the globe, imCORE is committed to advancing and accelerating cancer immunotherapy research. imCORE is an example of Genentech’s dedication to collaborating with the global cancer community to further understand cancer biology and immunology, help inform the development of potential future treatment, and transform patients’ lives.

Genentech’s data presented at ASCO will feature its efforts to drive innovation and commitment to health equity through delivery of pioneering medicines and personalized cancer care that together improve outcomes for every patient while reducing the cost to society, inclusive clinical trials that remove barriers to participation, partnerships that multiply our ability to address challenges in cancer care, and bringing innovation into earlier stages of disease to maximize a chance of cure.

About Polivy® (polatuzumab vedotin-piiq)

Polivy is a first-in-class anti-CD79b antibody-drug conjugate (ADC). The CD79b protein is expressed specifically in the majority of B cells, an immune cell impacted in some types of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma (NHL), making it a promising target for the development of new therapies. Polivy binds to CD79b and destroys these B cells through the delivery of an anti-cancer agent, which is thought to minimize the effects on normal cells. Polivy is being developed by Genentech using Seagen ADC technology and is currently being investigated for the treatment of several types of NHL.

Polivy U.S. Indication

Polivy is a prescription medicine used with other medicines, bendamustine and a rituximab product, to treat diffuse large B-cell lymphoma in adults who have progressed after at least two prior therapies.

The accelerated approval of Polivy is based on a type of response rate. There are ongoing studies to confirm the clinical benefit of Polivy.

Important Safety Information

Possible serious side effects

Everyone reacts differently to Polivy therapy, so it’s important to know what the side effects are. Some people who have been treated with Polivy have experienced serious to fatal side effects. A patient’s doctor may stop or adjust a patient’s treatment if any serious side effects occur. Patients must contact their healthcare team if there are any signs of these side effects.

Nerve problems in arms and legs: This may happen as early as after the first dose and may worsen with every dose. If a patient already has nerve pain, Polivy may make it worse. The patient’s doctor will monitor for signs and symptoms, such as changes in sense of touch, numbness or tingling in hands or feet, nerve pain, burning sensation, any muscle weakness, or changes to walking patterns

  • Infusion-related reactions: A patient may experience fever, chills, rash, breathing problems, low blood pressure, or hives within 24 hours of the infusion
  • Infections: Patients should contact their healthcare team if they experience a fever of 100.4°F or higher, chills, cough, or pain during urination. Also, a patient’s doctor may give medication before giving Polivy, which may prevent some infections, and monitor blood counts throughout treatment with Polivy. Treatment with Polivy can cause severe low blood cell counts
  • Rare and serious brain infections: A patient’s doctor will monitor the patient closely for signs and symptoms of these types of infections. Patients should contact their doctor if they experience confusion, dizziness or loss of balance, trouble talking or walking, or vision changes
  • Tumor lysis syndrome: Caused by the fast breakdown of cancer cells. Signs include nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and lack of energy
  • Potential harm to liver: Some signs include tiredness, weight loss, pain in the abdomen, dark urine, and yellowing of the skin or the white part of the eyes. Patients may be at higher risk if they already have liver problems or are taking other medication

Side effects seen most often

The most common side effects during treatment were:

  • Low blood cell counts (platelets, red blood cells, white blood cells)
  • Nerve problems in arms and legs
  • Tiredness or lack of energy
  • Diarrhea
  • Nausea
  • Fever
  • Decreased appetite
  • Infections

Polivy may not be for everyone. A patient should talk to their doctor if they are:

  • Pregnant or may be pregnant: Data have shown that Polivy may harm an unborn baby

About Tecentriq® (atezolizumab)

Tecentriq is a monoclonal antibody designed to bind with a protein called PD-L1. Tecentriq is designed to bind to PD-L1 expressed on tumor cells and tumor-infiltrating immune cells, blocking its interactions with both PD-1 and B7.1 receptors. By inhibiting PD-L1, Tecentriq may enable the re-activation of T cells. Tecentriq may also affect normal cells.

Tecentriq U.S. Indications

Tecentriq is a prescription medicine used to treat adults with:

A type of lung cancer called non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC).

  • Tecentriq may be used alone as a treatment for their lung cancer:
    • to help prevent their lung cancer from coming back after their tumor(s) has been removed by surgery and they have received platinum-based chemotherapy, and
    • they have stage 2 to 3A NSCLC (patients should talk to their healthcare provider about what these stages mean), and
    • their cancer tests positive for “PD-L1”.
  • Tecentriq may be used alone as their first treatment when their lung cancer:
    • has spread or grown, and
    • their cancer tests positive for “high PD-L1”, and
    • their tumor does not have an abnormal “EGFR” or “ALK” gene
  • Tecentriq may be used with the medicines bevacizumab, paclitaxel, and carboplatin as their first treatment when their lung cancer:
    • has spread or grown, and
    • is a type called “non-squamous NSCLC,” and
    • their tumor does not have an abnormal “EGFR” or “ALK” gene
  • Tecentriq may be used with the medicines paclitaxel protein-bound and carboplatin as their first treatment when their lung cancer:
    • has spread or grown, and
    • is a type called “non-squamous NSCLC,” and
    • their tumor does not have an abnormal “EGFR” or “ALK” gene
  • Tecentriq may also be used when their lung cancer:
    • has spread or grown, and
    • they have tried chemotherapy that contains platinum, and it did not work or is no longer working
      • if their tumor has an abnormal “EGFR” or “ALK” gene, they should have also tried an FDA-approved therapy for tumors with these abnormal genes, and it did not work or is no longer working

A type of lung cancer called small cell lung cancer (SCLC).

  • Tecentriq may be used with the chemotherapy medicines carboplatin and etoposide as their first treatment when their lung cancer:
    • is a type called “extensive-stage small cell lung cancer,” which means that it has spread or grown

It is not known if Tecentriq is safe and effective in children.

Important Safety Information

About Rozlytrek™

Rozlytrek (entrectinib) is an oral medicine for the treatment of adults with ROS1-positive, metastatic non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), as well as for the treatment of adult and pediatric patients 12 years of age and older with solid tumors that have a neurotrophic tyrosine receptor kinase (NTRK) gene fusion without a known acquired resistance mutation, are metastatic or where surgical resection is likely to result in severe morbidity, and have progressed following treatment or have no satisfactory alternative therapy. It is a selective tyrosine kinase inhibitor designed to inhibit the kinase activity of the TRK A/B/C and ROS1 proteins, whose activating fusions drive proliferation in certain types of cancer. Rozlytrek can block ROS1 and NTRK kinase activity and may result in the death of cancer cells with ROS1 or NTRK gene fusions.

Rozlytrek™ U.S. Indication (pronounced roz lye' trek)

Rozlytrek is a prescription medicine used to treat:

  • Adults with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) that has spread to other parts of the body and is caused by an abnormal ROS1 gene
  • Adults and children 12 years and older with solid tumors (cancer) that:
    • are caused by certain abnormal NTRK genes and
    • have spread or if surgery to remove their cancer is likely to cause severe complications, and
    • there is no satisfactory alternative treatment option or the cancer grew or spread on other treatment

It is not known if Rozlytrek is safe and effective for use in children less than 12 years of age.

Rozlytrek was approved in NTRK gene fusion-positive solid tumors through a faster FDA review process based on the percentage of patients whose tumor size shrank or disappeared after treatment and how long that response lasted. There are ongoing studies to confirm benefit of Rozlytrek for this use.

Important Safety Information

Rozlytrek may cause serious side effects, including:

  • Congestive heart failure. Rozlytrek may cause congestive heart failure or make the congestive heart failure that a patient already has worse. Patients should tell their healthcare provider right away if they have any of the following signs and symptoms of congestive heart failure:
     

● persistent coughing or wheezing

● increasing shortness of breath

     

● trouble breathing when lying down

● tiredness, weakness, or fatigue

     

● sudden weight gain

● swelling in ankles, feet, or legs

  • Central nervous system (CNS) effects. Rozlytrek may cause dizziness, changes in mood, or may affect how a patient thinks and cause confusion, hallucinations, and problems with concentration, attention, memory, and sleep. Patients should tell their healthcare provider right away if they have any of these symptoms.
  • Bone fractures. Rozlytrek may increase the risk of bone fractures. Bone fractures may happen with or without a fall or other injury. Patients should tell their healthcare provider if they have pain, changes in movement, or bone abnormalities.
  • Liver problems (hepatotoxicity). A healthcare provider will do blood tests to check a patient’s liver function during treatment with Rozlytrek. Patients should tell their healthcare provider right away if they develop symptoms of liver problems including: loss of appetite, nausea or vomiting, or pain on the upper right side of the stomach area. A healthcare provider may temporarily stop treatment, decrease the dose, or permanently stop Rozlytrek if a patient develops liver problems with Rozlytrek.
  • Increased uric acid level in the blood (hyperuricemia). Rozlytrek may cause an excess of uric acid in the blood. A healthcare provider may do tests before and during a patient’s treatment with Rozlytrek to check the uric acid level in the blood. A healthcare provider may prescribe medications if a patient has high blood uric acid levels.
  • Changes in the electrical activity of the heart called QT prolongation. QT prolongation can cause irregular heartbeats that can be life-threatening. A healthcare provider will do tests before and during treatment with Rozlytrek to check the electrical activity of the heart and body salts (electrolytes). Patients should tell their healthcare provider right away if they feel faint, lightheaded, dizzy, or feel their heart beating irregularly or fast while taking Rozlytrek. These may be symptoms related to QT prolongation.
  • Vision problems. Rozlytrek may cause vision problems. Healthcare providers may stop Rozlytrek and refer to an eye specialist if a patient develops severe vision problems during treatment with Rozlytrek. Patients should tell their healthcare provider right away if they have any loss of vision or any change in vision, including:
     

● double vision

● seeing flashes of light

     

● blurry vision

● light hurting the eyes

     

● new or increased floaters
