Eisai to Present Abstracts on Oncology Products and Pipeline at ESMO Virtual Congress 2021

TOKYO, Sep 14, 2021 - (JCN Newswire) - Eisai Co., Ltd. (Headquarters: Tokyo, CEO: Haruo Naito, "Eisai") announced today that presentations on a series of abstracts highlighting updates on its oncology products and pipeline will be given at the European Society for Medical Oncology (ESMO) Virtual Congress 2021, from September 16 to 21, 2021, including its in-house discovered lenvatinib mesylate (product name: LENVIMA, an orally available multi-kinase inhibitor, "lenvatinib") and eribulin mesylate (product name: HALAVEN, a halichondrin class microtubule dynamics inhibitor, "eribulin").

At this congress, differences in outcomes by histology and prior therapy in the pivotal Phase 3 Study 309/KEYNOTE-775 trial, which compared the combination therapy of lenvatinib plus pembrolizumab (product name: KEYTRUDA), the anti-PD-1 therapy from Merck & Co., Inc., Kenilworth, N.J., U.S.A. (known as MSD outside the United States and Canada), with TPC (Treatment of Physician's Choice) in patients with advanced endometrial cancer, following at least one prior platinum-based regimen, will be presented as an oral presentation (Abstract No: 726MO). In addition, a subgroup analysis and safety update from the pivotal Phase 3 CLEAR study (Study 307/KEYNOTE-581), which compared the combination of lenvatinib plus pembrolizumab versus sunitinib for the first-line treatment of patients with advanced renal cell carcinoma (RCC) will be presented as an e-poster presentation (Abstract No: 660P).

Additionally, e- poster presentations will be given on the outcomes of early clinical studies on a liposomal formulation of eribulin plus nivolumab (Abstract No: 980P), a CREB-binding protein (CBP)/β-catenin interaction inhibitor E7386 (Abstract No: 473P) and a compound derived from total synthesis of halichondrin, E7130 (Abstract No: 545P).

In March 2018, Eisai and Merck & Co., Inc., Kenilworth, N.J., U.S.A., through an affiliate, entered into a strategic collaboration for the worldwide co-development and co-commercialization of lenvatinib.

Eisai positions oncology as a key therapeutic area and is aiming to discover revolutionary new medicines with the potential to cure cancer. Eisai will continue to create innovation in the development of new drugs based on cutting-edge cancer research, as it seeks to contribute further to addressing the diverse needs of, and increasing the benefits provided to, patients with cancer, their families, and healthcare providers.
