ADC Therapeutics Announces Abstracts to be Presented at the Tenth Annual Meeting of the Society of Hematologic Oncology (SOHO 2022)

September 21, 2022

Initial safety run‐in results from LOTIS-5 Phase 3 trial demonstrate ORR of 75% and 40% CR rate with no new safety signals

Cami pivotal Phase 2 data to be highlighted in encore oral and poster presentations

ADC Therapeutics SA (NYSE: ADCT) today announced that ZYNLONTA® (loncastuximab tesirine-lpyl) and camidanlumab tesirine (Cami) abstracts have been accepted for presentation at the Tenth Annual Meeting of the Society of Hematologic Oncology (SOHO 2022), which will be held in Houston, Texas from September 28–October 1, 2022.

“We are looking forward to sharing the encouraging initial safety run-in results from our LOTIS-5 Phase 3 clinical trial evaluating ZYNLONTA in combination with rituximab in patients with relapsed or refractory diffuse large B-cell lymphoma at SOHO 2022,” said Joseph Camardo, MD, Chief Medical Officer of ADC Therapeutics. “This is one of several clinical studies of ZYNLONTA in combination with other drugs intended to evaluate ZYNLONTA in earlier lines of treatment. ”

LOTIS-5 Initial Safety Run-In Results

LOTIS-5 is a Phase 3, randomized, open‐label, two‐part, two‐arm, multicenter study of loncastuximab tesirine in combination with rituximab (Lonca-R) in patients with relapsed or refractory diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL). Twenty patients were enrolled in part 1 in a nonrandomized safety run‐in. In part 2, approximately 330 patients will be randomized 1:1 to receive Lonca‐R or rituximab‐gemcitabine‐oxaliplatin (R‐GemOx).

The 20 patients in the safety run‐in were a median age of 74.5 years (range 35‐93) and received a median of 1 previous therapy (range 1‐6). As of the February 28, 2022, data cutoff:

  • The overall response rate by central review was 15/20 (75%). A total of 8/20 (40%) and 7/20 (35%) patients attained complete response and partial response, respectively.
  • The most common all‐grade TEAEs, regardless of the relationship to the study treatment, were rash (5 [25%]), fatigue (4 [20%]), and increased gamma-glutamyl transferase (4 [20%]). The most common grade ≥3 TEAEs were increased gamma-glutamyl transferase (3 [15%]), increased alanine aminotransferase (2 [10%]), and neutropenia (2 [10%]).

These data will be presented in the following poster:

About ZYNLONTA® (loncastuximab tesirine-lpyl)

ZYNLONTA® is a CD19-directed antibody drug conjugate (ADC). Once bound to a CD19-expressing cell, ZYNLONTA is internalized by the cell, where enzymes release a pyrrolobenzodiazepine (PBD) payload. The potent payload binds to DNA minor groove with little distortion, remaining less visible to DNA repair mechanisms. This ultimately results in cell cycle arrest and tumor cell death.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved ZYNLONTA (loncastuximab tesirine-lpyl) for the treatment of adult patients with relapsed or refractory (r/r) large B-cell lymphoma after two or more lines of systemic therapy, including DLBCL not otherwise specified, DLBCL arising from low-grade lymphoma and also high-grade B-cell lymphoma. The trial included a broad spectrum of heavily pre-treated patients (median three prior lines of therapy) with difficult-to-treat disease, including patients who did not respond to first-line therapy, patients refractory to all prior lines of therapy, patients with double/triple hit genetics and patients who had stem cell transplant and CAR-T therapy prior to their treatment with ZYNLONTA. This indication is approved by the FDA under accelerated approval based on overall response rate and continued approval for this indication may be contingent upon verification and description of clinical benefit in a confirmatory trial.

ZYNLONTA is also being evaluated as a therapeutic option in combination studies in other B-cell malignancies and earlier lines of therapy.

About Camidanlumab Tesirine (Cami)

Camidanlumab tesirine (Cami) is an antibody drug conjugate (ADC) comprised of a monoclonal antibody that binds to CD25 (HuMax®-TAC, licensed from Genmab A/S), conjugated to the pyrrolobenzodiazepine (PBD) dimer payload, tesirine. Once bound to a CD25-expressing cell, Cami is internalized into the cell where enzymes release the PBD-based payload, killing the cell. This applies to CD25-expressing tumor cells and also to CD25-expressing Tregs. The intra-tumoral release of its PBD payload may also cause bystander killing of neighboring tumor cells, and PBDs have also been shown to induce immunogenic cell death. All of these properties of Cami may enhance immune-mediated anti-tumor activity.

Cami is being evaluated in a pivotal Phase 2 clinical trial in patients with relapsed or refractory Hodgkin lymphoma and a Phase 1b clinical trial as monotherapy and in combination with pembrolizumab in solid tumors.
