LAUSANNE, Switzerland--(BUSINESS WIRE)--ADC Therapeutics SA (NYSE: ADCT), a commercial-stage biotechnology company improving the lives of those affected by cancer with its next-generation, targeted antibody drug conjugates (ADCs) for patients with hematologic malignancies and solid tumors, today announced abstracts for ZYNLONTA® and ADCT-602 have been accepted for presentations at the 63rd American Society of Hematology (ASH) Annual Meeting, which will be held virtually and in Atlanta, Georgia from December 11-14, 2021.
“We look forward to sharing data on our targeted ADCs as single agents and in innovative combinations at the 2021 ASH Annual Meeting,” said Joseph Camardo, MD, Chief Medical Officer of ADC Therapeutics. “This will include presentations from investigators on subset data from our pivotal Phase 2 study and data on the use of ZYNLONTA post-CAR-T. We are also encouraged by the anti-tumor activity and manageable safety profile of ZYNLONTA in combination with ibrutinib. The Phase 2 protocol has recently been amended with a higher and more frequent dose of ZYNLONTA to potentially enhance the response and to investigate this combination in earlier lines of therapy.”

About ZYNLONTA® (loncastuximab tesirine-lpyl)
ZYNLONTA® is a CD19-directed antibody drug conjugate (ADC). Once bound to a CD19-expressing cell, ZYNLONTA is internalized by the cell, where enzymes release a pyrrolobenzodiazepine (PBD) payload. The potent payload binds to DNA minor groove with little distortion, remaining less visible to DNA repair mechanisms. This ultimately results in cell cycle arrest and tumor cell death.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved ZYNLONTA (loncastuximab tesirine-lpyl) for the treatment of adult patients with relapsed or refractory (r/r) large B-cell lymphoma after two or more lines of systemic therapy, including diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) not otherwise specified (NOS), DLBCL arising from low-grade lymphoma and also high-grade B-cell lymphoma. The trial included a broad spectrum of heavily pre-treated patients (median three prior lines of therapy) with difficult-to-treat disease, including patients who did not respond to first-line therapy, patients refractory to all prior lines of therapy, patients with double/triple hit genetics and patients who had stem cell transplant and CAR-T therapy prior to their treatment with ZYNLONTA. This indication is approved by the FDA under accelerated approval based on overall response rate and continued approval for this indication may be contingent upon verification and description of clinical benefit in a confirmatory trial.
ZYNLONTA is also being evaluated as a therapeutic option in combination studies in other B-cell malignancies and earlier lines of therapy.
