AstraZeneca showcases strength of haematology portfolio and pipeline across multiple hard-to-treat conditions at ASH 2022

Calquence real-world evidence and long-term follow-up data, as well as research collaborations, will reinforce efficacy and safety across B-cell malignancies. Early clinical data will illustrate potential of multiple pipeline molecules, including TNB-486 (AZD0486), across haematologic malignancies. Research from Alexion, AstraZeneca Rare Disease, offers new insights to accelerate innovation and improve time to diagnosis for several rare diseases.

AstraZeneca will present 47 abstracts showcasing new data from across its haematology portfolio and clinical pipeline, demonstrating its commitment to redefining care for hard-to-treat blood diseases at the 64th American Society of Hematology (ASH) Annual Meeting and Exposition, 10 to 13 December 2022.

A total of eight approved and potential new medicines will be featured across more than ten types of blood cancers and rare diseases, including data in chronic lymphocytic leukaemia (CLL), follicular lymphoma (FL), diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL), mantle cell lymphoma (MCL), paroxysmal nocturnal haemoglobinuria (PNH), atypical haemolytic uraemic syndrome (aHUS) and amyloid light chain (AL) amyloidosis.

Anas Younes, Senior Vice President, Haematology R&D, AstraZeneca, said: "At this year's ASH Annual Meeting, our data demonstrate the broad potential of our haematology pipeline and the continued strength of our approved medicines. Data are being highlighted from many of our early-stage molecules, including clinical trials of TNB-486 (AZD0486), a B-cell targeting T-cell engager, and presentations of long-term follow-up data will show the consistent safety and efficacy profile of Calquence."

Gianluca Pirozzi, Senior Vice President, Head of Development and Safety, Alexion, AstraZeneca Rare Disease, said: "The depth and breadth of Alexion data at this year's ASH Annual Meeting reinforce the importance of earlier diagnosis and disease management for rare diseases that are often not well-understood. We will share research across several therapy areas - including an oral presentation demonstrating the potential of vemircopan, an investigational, second-generation factor D inhibitor as monotherapy treatment of paroxysmal nocturnal haemoglobinuria - underscoring our leadership and unwavering commitment to driving critical innovations in rare disease."

Calquence (acalabrutinib) real-world evidence and long-term follow-up data support consistent efficacy and safety profile

  • A post-hoc safety analysis from the head-to-head ELEVATE-RR Phase III trial of Calquence versus ibrutinib will further support tolerability differences of Calquence in relapsed or refractory CLL.1
  • Final long-term follow-up results of the Phase I/II trials evaluating Calquence monotherapy in front-line and relapsed or refractory CLL will further support the continued efficacy and safety Calquence demonstrated in both settings.2,3
  • An oral presentation of Phase II research sponsored by the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute will show the efficacy and tolerability of Calquence combined with venetoclax and obinutuzumab in a front-line, high-risk CLL population.4
  • A retrospective pooled analysis will show the benefit of adding obinutuzumab to Calquence in the front-line CLL setting in patients with select genomic characteristics.5
  • An oral presentation of preliminary Phase II results sponsored by Weill Cornell Medicine will show that Calquence combined with lenalidomide and rituximab is generally well-tolerated, highly effective and produces high rates of minimal residual disease-negative complete remission in front-line MCL.6

Novel treatment strategies with emerging pipeline molecules exhibit therapeutic potential

  • An oral presentation of interim Phase I results evaluating TNB-486 (AZD0486), a CD19/CD3 next generation bispecific T-cell engager, will show the potential of targeting CD19/CD3, leading to an increase in anti-cancer activity in heavily pretreated patients with B-cell non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL).7
  • Results from Phase I and II trials of CDK9 inhibitor AZD4573 alone and with Calquence will exhibit data on tolerability across a broad range of haematologic malignancies, including relapsed or refractory DLBCL.8,9
  • Preliminary results from an ongoing Phase I trial will demonstrate that Bcl-2/Bcl-xl inhibitor AZD0466 has been well-tolerated in patients with advanced haematologic malignancies.10

Innovating to help address the treatment needs of all patients with PNH

  • An oral presentation detailing interim results from a Phase II open-label trial of vemircopan (ALXN2050) will highlight efficacy and safety data from the treatment-naïve patient group, establishing proof-of-concept as a monotherapy for PNH.11
  • An interim analysis from an ongoing Phase IV trial assessing the impact of switching to standard, weight-based intravenous (i.v.) Ultomiris (ravulizumab) from high-dose i.v. Soliris (eculizumab) in adults with PNH will be presented.12

Improving diagnosis and management of life-threatening rare diseases

  • An analysis of data from the Global aHUS Registry, which contains information on patients across more than 100 sites in more than 20 countries, will highlight the importance of considering aHUS as a diagnosis even in the presence of a triggering condition or associated event.13
  • An analysis of real-world patient data from the US Premier Healthcare Database will expand on the potential of the PLASMIC scoring system to aid in identifying people with aHUS and making earlier treatment decisions.14
  • An analysis of paediatric patients with haematopoietic stem cell transplant-associated thrombotic microangiopathy (HSCT-TMA) will provide insights on the correlation between complement activation and endothelial damage in HSCT-TMA and the potential for useful biomarkers indicative of this damage to inform diagnosis.15
  • Results through one year on safety, tolerability and biomarker data will be presented from a Phase II trial evaluating CAEL-101, a potentially first-in-class monoclonal antibody, in adults with AL amyloidosis.16
  • A real-world analysis in a current population with AL amyloidosis using Komodo Health US claims data will highlight the need for greater awareness and understanding to accelerate time to diagnosis.17
