Seattle Genetics, Millennium to feature SGN-35 in three poster presentations at ISHL symposium

Seattle Genetics, Inc. (Nasdaq: SGEN) and Millennium: The Takeda Oncology Company, a wholly owned subsidiary of Takeda Pharmaceutical Company Limited (TSE:4502), today announced that brentuximab vedotin (SGN-35) will be featured in three poster presentations at the 8th International Symposium on Hodgkin Lymphoma (ISHL) being held October 23-26, 2010 in Cologne, Germany.

“We maintain our focus on meeting with regulators in Europe to discuss filing strategies in relapsed or refractory Hodgkin lymphoma and relapsed or refractory ALCL.”

The following posters will be presented on Tuesday, October 26, 2010:

  • Objective responses with SGN-35 retreatment in CD30-positive hematologic malignancies: a case series (Abstract #113)
  • Activity, safety and tolerability of antibody-drug conjugate (ADC) SGN-35 in relapsed/refractory Hodgkin lymphoma and CD30+ hematologic malignancies (Abstract #74)
  • Activity of SGN-35 in preclinical models of combination therapy and relapse prevention (Abstract #49)

"These presentations complement the recent positive results from our pivotal Hodgkin lymphoma and phase II systemic anaplastic large cell lymphoma (ALCL) trials, both in the relapsed or refractory setting, and describe the additional opportunities we are pursuing to meet the needs of patients with CD30-positive malignancies," said Thomas C. Reynolds, M.D., Ph.D., Chief Medical Officer of Seattle Genetics. "In addition, we are preparing our brentuximab vedotin Biologics License Application (BLA) for submission to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in the first half of 2011."

"The acceptance of these presentations at ISHL underscores the scientific community's continued interest in brentuximab vedotin," said Nancy Simonian, M.D., Chief Medical Officer of Millennium. "We maintain our focus on meeting with regulators in Europe to discuss filing strategies in relapsed or refractory Hodgkin lymphoma and relapsed or refractory ALCL."
