ADC Therapeutics Announces First Patient in Phase I Trial of ADCT-402 in CD-19 Positive B-Cell Non-Hodgkin Lymphomas

ADC Therapeutics announced that the first patient has been dosed in a Phase I trial to evaluate its antibody drug conjugate (ADC) ADCT-402 in B-cell non-Hodgkin Lymphoma (B-NHL). The two stage, open-label trial will evaluate the tolerability, safety, pharmacokinetics and activity of ADCT-402 in patients with relapsed or refractory B-NHL. The first stage is a dose escalation phase which will recruit up to 30 patients at ten clinical sites across the US and EU and will seek to determine the recommended dose of ADCT-402 for the second stage. The second stage, which will begin once an appropriate dose is identified, aims to confirm the safety and efficacy profile at the selected dose. ADCT-402 combines a humanized monoclonal antibody targeting the protein CD19 with a pyrrolo-benzodiazepine (PBD) warhead. CD19 is a B-cell specific surface protein expressed throughout B-cell development. It is expressed on nearly all B-cell malignancies in many non-Hodgkin lymphomas. Due to its specificity, it has become an attractive target for ADC therapies. In preclinical in vivo models, ADCT-402 exhibited strong dose-dependent anti-tumor activity against CD19-positive leukemic and lymphoma cell lines at low single doses, and it outperformed other CD19 targeted ADCs currently in clinical development. B-cell non-Hodgkin Lymphoma is a common type of non-Hodgkin lymphoma, a cancer of the lymphatic system. Non-Hodgkin Lymphomas overall are the 10th most common cancer in the world. In 2012, there were nearly 386,000 new cases diagnosed globally, with highest incidence rates reported in Northern America.
