BOTHELL, Wash.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Seattle Genetics, Inc. (Nasdaq:SGEN) today announced that more than a dozen abstracts, in addition to several collaborator abstracts, for both ADCETRIS (brentuximab vedotin) and investigational antibody-drug conjugates (ADCs) will be presented at the American Society of Hematology (ASH) Annual Meeting taking place in Atlanta, Georgia, December 8 – 11, 2012. ADCETRIS is an ADC directed to CD30, which is known to be expressed in Hodgkin lymphoma (HL) and systemic anaplastic large cell lymphoma (sALCL), as well as in some types of cutaneous T-cell lymphoma (CTCL), B-cell lymphomas and mature T-cell lymphomas (MTCL). Seattle Genetics is broadly evaluating CD30 expression in many other cancer types. ADCETRIS is currently not approved for use in CTCL, B-cell lymphomas, and front-line treatment of HL or MTCL.
