Celltrion USA Receives FDA Approval for Vegzelma® (bevacizumab-adcd) Bio-Oncology for the Treatment of Six Types of Cancer

Chicago–(work wire) – Cel Tryon United States of America announced today that US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Vegzelma . approved® (bevacizumab-adcd), a biosimilar to Avastin® (bevacizumab)1For the treatment of six types of cancer: metastatic colorectal cancer. recurrent or metastatic non-small cell lung cancer (nsNSCLC); Recurrent glioblastoma. Metastatic renal cell carcinoma. persistent, recurrent, or metastatic cervical cancer; and ovarian, fallopian tube or primary peritoneal cancer.

“Biosurrogates have been used in many areas of disease including oncology, and they have been shown to be safe and effective while lowering the cost of drugs and increasing access to more patients around the world,” said Professor Claire Vershragen, Director of the Medical Oncology Department at the Center for Disease Control and Prevention. Comprehensive Cancer at The Ohio State University, Columbus, Ohio. With the availability of biosimilars such as Vegzelma® In the United States, oncologists will have additional treatment options for patients across multiple cancer types.”

FDA Approval of Vegzelma® It was based on the entirety of the evidence, including a pivotal phase III trial in patients with metastatic or recurrent nsNSCLC. The results showed that Vegzelma as a first-class treatment® Very similar to the reference product in terms of efficacy, safety and pharmacokinetics.2

“Vegzelma’s approval® “It is a significant US milestone that adds to our growing portfolio of oncology therapies and represents an important step forward in expanding access to cancer care,” said Jake Shim, chief operating officer of Celltrion USA. “As a leading force in the global biopharmaceutical industry, we look forward to working with payers and providers to make our product available to patients. Through our high-quality, affordable medicines, we plan to strengthen our presence in the United States and contribute to a more sustainable healthcare system for the future.”

Figzelma® It is the third celltrion biosimilar to be approved for use in the United States, following Truxima . approval® (Rituximab-APS) and Herzoma® (trastuzumab-pkrb). Figzelma® Approved in the EU in August 2022 and the UK and Japan in September 2022. Regulatory reviews are underway in other countries.

About Vegzelma® (CT-P16, Bevacizumab-ADCD biosimilar)2

Figzelma® It is an anticancer treatment with monoclonal antibodies, a biosimilar to Avastin® (bevacizumab). Figzelma® It is a recombinant monoclonal antibody that binds to vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF), a major driver of angiogenesis and angiogenesis, thus preventing binding of VEGF to its receptor Flt-1 (VEGFR-1), and the kinase insertion domain receptor (KDR) (VEGFR-2) , on the surface of endothelial cells. In the United States, Figzelma® It is indicated for the treatment of patients with metastatic colorectal cancer (mCRC); recurrent or metastatic non-small cell lung cancer (nsNSCLC); recurrent glioblastoma (GBM); metastatic renal cell carcinoma (mRCC); persistent, recurrent, or metastatic cervical cancer (CC); Epithelial ovary, fallopian tube, or primary peritoneal carcinoma.

Figzelma® Important safety information3

Warnings and precautions

Perforation and gastro-intestinal fistula: stop gastrointestinal perforation, tracheoesophageal fistula, grade 4 fistula, or fistula formation involving any organ.

Surgery and wound-healing complications: In patients who experience wound-healing complications during VEGZELMA therapy, withhold VEGZELMA until adequate wound healing has occurred. Withhold for at least 28 days before elective surgery. Do not administer VEGZELMA for at least 28 days after major surgery, until adequate wound healing has occurred. The safety of resuming bevacizumab products after resolution of wound healing complications has not been established. Discontinue wound healing complications of necrotizing fasciitis.

Haemorrhage: Severe or fatal bleeding has occurred. Do not administer the last hemoptysis. Grade 3-4 hemorrhage.

Arterial thromboembolic events (ATE): discontinue severe ATE.

Venous thromboembolic events (VTE): discontinuation of grade 4 VTE.

Hypertension: Monitor blood pressure and treat high blood pressure. Withhold if not medically controlled; Resume control once. Stop hypertensive crisis or cerebral hypertension.

Posterior reversible encephalopathy syndrome (PRES): discontinue.

Renal injury and proteinuria: urine protein monitoring. Stop nephrotic syndrome. It blocks even less than 2 grams of protein in the urine.

Infusion-related reactions: Decrease the rate of infusion-related reactions. Discontinue severe infusion-related reactions and administer medical treatment.

Embryotoxic: May cause harm to the fetus. Advise females of potential risks to the fetus and the need to use effective contraception.

Ovarian failure: counseling females about potential risks.

Congestive Heart Failure (CHF): Discontinue use of VEGZELMA in patients with congestive heart failure.

pregnancy warning

Based on the results of animal studies and its mechanism of action, bevacizumab products may cause fetal harm in pregnant women. Limited marketing reports describe cases of fetal malformations with use of bevacizumab products during pregnancy; However, these reports are insufficient to determine the risks associated with the drug. In animal reproduction studies, intravenous administration of bevacizumab to pregnant rabbits every 3 days during organogenesis at doses approximately 1 to 10 times the clinical dose of 10 mg/kg resulted in fetal resorption, decreased maternal and fetal weight gain and multiple congenital malformations including corneal opacities and Abnormal ossification of the skull and skeleton, including defects of the limbs and phalanges. Furthermore, animal models link angiogenesis and VEGF and VEGFR2 to critical aspects of female reproduction, fetal development, and postnatal development. Advise pregnant women of the potential risks to the fetus.

In the general population of the United States, the estimated background risks of major birth defects and miscarriage in clinically recognized pregnancies range from 2% to 4% and 15% to 20%, respectively.

Frequently observed adverse reactions

The most common adverse reactions occurring (incidence >10%) are epistaxis, headache, hypertension, rhinitis, proteinuria, taste change, dry skin, hemorrhage, tearing disorder, back pain, and exfoliative dermatitis.
