Genmab A/S announced that multiple abstracts evaluating epcoritamab, a T-cell engaging bispecific antibody administered subcutaneously, will be presented at the 2024 European Hematology Association (EHA) Congress, being held in Madrid, Spain and virtually, June 13-16, 2024. Presentations will include data from clinical trials evaluating the safety and efficacy of epcoritamab as a monotherapy and in combination with standard-of-care or other novel therapies across multiple patient populations. Three oral presentations will highlight data from the pivotal and cycle 1 dose optimization cohorts of EPCORE NHL-1 evaluating epcoritamab in patients with relapsed/refractory follicular lymphoma (FL), from EPCORE NHL-5 evaluating epcoritamab in combination with polatuzumab vedotin, rituximab, cyclophosphamide, doxorubicin, and prednisone (Pola-R-CHP) as a potential first-line treatment regimen for patients with diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (and DLBCL), and from EPCORE CLL-1 evaluating epcoritamab in patients with Richter?s transformation (RT).

All abstracts accepted for presentation have been published and may be accessed online via the EHA Open Access Library. Epcoritamab is an IgG1-bispecific antibody created using Genmab's proprietary DuoBody® technology and administered subcutaneously. Genmab's DuoBody-CD3 technology is designed to direct cytotoxic T cells selectively to elicit an immune response toward target cell types.

Epcoritamab is designed to simultaneously bind to CD3 on T cells and CD20 on B cells and induces T-cell-mediated killing of CD20+ cells.i Epcoritamab has received regulatory approval in certain lymphoma indications in several territories. Use of epcoritamab in FL is not approved in the U.S. or in the EU or in any other territory. Epcoritamab is being co-developed by Genmab and AbbVie as part of the companies' oncology collaboration.

The companies will share commercial responsibilities in the U.S. and Japan, with AbbVie responsible for further global commercialization. Genmab and AbbVie continue to evaluate the use of epcoritamab as a monotherapy, and in combination, across lines of therapy in a range of hematologic malignancies. This includes four ongoing phase 3, open-label, randomized trials including a trial evaluating epcoritamab as a monotherapy in patients with R/R DLBCL compared to investigators choice chemotherapy (NCT: 04628494), a trial evaluating epcoritamab in combination with R-CHOP in adult participants with newly diagnosed DLBCL (NCT: 05578976), a trial evaluating epcoritamab in combination with rituximab and lenalidomide in patients with R/R FL (NCT: 05409066), and a trial evaluating epcoritamab in combination with rituximab and lenalidomide (R2) compared to chemotherapy in patients with previously untreated FL (NCT: 06191744).
