LEUKOTAC® AT THE 44TH CONGRESS OF THE EUROPEAN SOCIETY FOR BLOOD AND MARROW TRANSPLANTATION (EBMT)

ELSALYS BIOTECH, a new player in immuno-oncology, will present at the 44th EBMT congress which will take place in Lisbon, Portugal, from 18 to 21 March, the progress made on LEUKOTAC® (inolimomab), its monoclonal antibody that recently demonstrated promising clinical results in the treatment of SR-aGvHD.

The company will present a poster on additional analysis of safety data of the Phase 3 study testing LEUKOTAC® vs ATG* (control arm) in 100 patients with SR-aGvHD. The data demonstrate that LEUKOTAC® represents a relevant alternative treatment, notably because of its significantly more favourable safety profile as compared to ATG. There are 3 times fewer related adverse events (AE) for all stages with LEUKOTAC® (14%) than with ATG (41%), p=0.004, as well as 2.5 times less related AE of grade 3 or higher (LEUKOTAC® 12% vs ATG 29%, p = 0.04). It is shown as well a clear decrease in potentialy life-threatening infectious episodes such as sepsis and septic shock (14% vs 24% and 4% vs 16% for the LEUKOTAC®  and ATG groups, respectively). Other major data concern the increase in overall survival at one year (+ 37%) with LEUKOTAC®, at the limit of statistical significance (HR=0.628, p=0,055 unilateral).
