Daiichi Sankyo Highlights Progress in Creating New Standards of Care for Patients Across Multiple Cancers at ASCO

 
  • ENHERTU® late-breaking data from DESTINY-Breast06 continues to redefine the classification and treatment of metastatic breast cancer with new data in patients with HER2 low and HER2 ultralow disease
  • Updated survival results from DESTINY-Breast03 trial of ENHERTU in patients with previously treated HER2 positive metastatic breast cancer also to be presented
  • Investor meeting to discuss ASCO presentations and oncology development updates
 

BASKING RIDGE, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Daiichi Sankyo (TSE: 4568) will present new clinical research across its oncology portfolio with more than 45 abstracts in multiple cancers at the 2024 American Society of Clinical Oncology Scientific Program (#ASCO24).

Data at ASCO showcasing the company’s progress in creating new standards of care for patients with cancer will include the late-breaking positive results of the DESTINY-Breast06 phase 3 trial (LBA #1000) evaluating ENHERTU® (trastuzumab deruxtecan) compared to standard of care chemotherapy in patients with HR positive, HER2 low (IHC 1+ or IHC 2+/ISH-) or HER2 ultralow [defined as IHC 0 with membrane staining; IHC >0 <1+] metastatic breast cancer following one or more lines of endocrine therapy. Data from DESTINY-Breast06 will be featured in an ASCO press briefing.

“Results to be shared at ASCO from DESTINY-Breast06 demonstrate how ENHERTU continues to challenge the traditional classification and treatment of breast cancer, building on the practice-changing results seen with DESTINY-Breast04,” said Ken Takeshita, MD, Global Head, R&D, Daiichi Sankyo. “These significant data along with updated survival results from DESTINY-Breast03 highlight how ENHERTU is a transformative medicine for the treatment of certain patients with metastatic breast cancer.”

Updated survival results from the DESTINY-Breast03 phase 3 trial (#1025) of ENHERTU versus trastuzumab emtansine (T-DM1) in patients with previously treated HER2 positive metastatic breast cancer along with interim results from the dose expansion portion of DESTINY-Breast07 phase 1b/2 trial (#1009) evaluating ENHERTU monotherapy as well as ENHERTU plus pertuzumab in patients with previously untreated HER2 positive metastatic breast cancer also will be presented.

Additional ENHERTU data at ASCO includes the final results of the DESTINY-Lung02 phase 2 trial (#8543) in patients with previously treated HER2 mutant non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) as well as three sub-analyses from the DESTINY-PanTumor02 phase 2 trial in patients with HER2 expressing metastatic biliary tract and pancreatic cancer (#4090), bladder cancer (#4565) and head and neck cancer (#6037). Data from DESTINY-PanTumor02 was one of three phase 2 trials that led to the recent accelerated approval in the U.S. of ENHERTU for a tumor agnostic indication in unresectable or metastatic HER2 positive (IHC 3+) solid tumors.

Additional Data and Trials-in-Progress Across Daiichi Sankyo’s DXd ADC Portfolio at ASCO
Additional sub-analyses from the TROPION-Lung02 phase 1b trial (#8617) evaluating datopotamab deruxtecan (Dato-DXd) in combination with pembrolizumab with or without platinum chemotherapy as a first-line treatment for patients with advanced or metastatic NSCLC, the intracranial efficacy of datopotamab deruxtecan in patients with advanced or metastatic NSCLC with actionable genomic alterations from the TROPION-Lung05 phase 2 trial (#8593), and patient reported outcomes from the TROPION-Breast01 phase 3 trial (#1006) of datopotamab deruxtecan versus chemotherapy in patients with previously treated inoperable or metastatic hormone receptor positive, HER2 negative breast cancer will be presented.

Trials-in-progress presentations include the IDeate-Lung02 phase 3 trial (TPS8126) evaluating ifinatamab deruxtecan (I-DXd) in patients with relapsed small cell lung cancer, the REJOICE-Ovarian01 phase 2/3 trial (TPS5625) evaluating raludotatug deruxtecan (R-DXd) in patients with platinum-resistant ovarian cancer, the HERTHENA-PanTumor01 phase 2 trial (TPS3164) evaluating patritumab deruxtecan (HER3-DXd) in patients with locally advanced or metastatic solid tumors, and the first-in-human phase 1/2 trial (TPS3165) of DS-3939 in patients with advanced solid tumors.

Additional trials-in-progress featuring combinations of Daiichi Sankyo’s DXd ADCs and a novel medicine in development include a phase 1b trial (TPS4180) evaluating valemetostat, a dual inhibitor of EZH1 and EZH2, in combination with ENHERTU or datopotamab deruxtecan in patients with solid tumors and a phase 1b trial (TPS1120) evaluating valemetostat in combination with ENHERTU in HER2 low, ultralow and null metastatic breast cancers.

Daiichi Sankyo will hold a virtual conference call for investors on Monday, June 3, 2024 from 6:00 to 7:00 pm CDT / Tuesday, June 4, 2024 from 8:00 to 9:00 am JST. Executives from Daiichi Sankyo will provide an overview of the ASCO research data and address questions.

About the DXd ADC Portfolio of Daiichi Sankyo
The DXd ADC portfolio of Daiichi Sankyo currently consists of six ADCs in clinical development across multiple types of cancer. ENHERTU, a HER2 directed ADC, and datopotamab deruxtecan (Dato-DXd), a TROP2 directed ADC, are being jointly developed and commercialized globally with AstraZeneca. Patritumab deruxtecan (HER3-DXd), a HER3 directed ADC, ifinatamab deruxtecan (I-DXd), a B7-H3 directed ADC, and raludotatug deruxtecan (R-DXd), a CDH6 directed ADC, are being jointly developed and commercialized globally with Merck. DS-3939, a TA-MUC1 directed ADC, is being developed by Daiichi Sankyo.

Designed using Daiichi Sankyo’s proprietary DXd ADC Technology to target and deliver a cytotoxic payload inside cancer cells that express a specific cell surface antigen, each ADC consists of a monoclonal antibody attached to a number of topoisomerase I inhibitor payloads (an exatecan derivative, DXd) via tetrapeptide-based cleavable linkers.

Datopotamab deruxtecan, ifinatamab deruxtecan, patritumab deruxtecan, raludotatug deruxtecan and DS-3939 are investigational medicines that have not been approved for any indication in any country. Safety and efficacy have not been established.
