First-in-Human Data Evaluating AMG 420 in Multiple Myeloma and AMG 330 in Acute Myeloid Leukemia Underscore Potential of BiTE® Immunotherapy Platform Across Hematologic Malignancies

BLINCYTO® (Blinatumomab) Long-Term Data Demonstrate Benefits of Achieving Complete MRD Response in Adult Patients With Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia and Reinforce BiTE® Proof-of-Concept

Data From Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation CoMMpass Trial  of KYPROLIS® (Carfilzomib) in Newly Diagnosed Multiple Myeloma Patients to be Presented at ASH

Amgen today announced that new clinical data will be presented at the 60th American Society of Hematology (ASH) Annual Meeting & Exposition in San Diego, Dec. 1-4, 2018. Data across an array of malignancies will be featured in 45 abstracts, including nine oral presentations, from the Company’s broad portfolio and early-stage pipeline.

The breadth of data to be presented at ASH this year represent Amgen’s continued search for answers to complex scientific questions, leveraging its long-standing expertise in blood cancers to develop early immuno-oncology pipeline candidates and innovative biologics in areas of significant unmet need. Notable data include two oral presentations on first-in-human studies evaluating two early-stage bi-specific T cell engager (BiTE®) molecules – AMG 420 and AMG 330.BiTE® molecules are designed to harness the immune system and can be modified in an effort to enable cytotoxic T cells in the body to recognize cancer cells and destroy them. Additional data from Amgen’s hematology franchise will also be featured, including long-term overall survival (OS) data for BLINCYTO® (blinatumomab) in patients who had achieved complete minimal residual disease (MRD) response and for once-weekly dosing of KYPROLIS® (carfilzomib) in combination with dexamethasone.

“For nearly four decades, Amgen has been at the forefront of cutting-edge science that has helped change treatment paradigms for patients with difficult-to-treat blood cancers. Today, we are on the cusp of a new wave of advances that harness the body’s own immune system to transform cancer care,” said David M. Reese, M.D., executive vice president of Research and Development at Amgen. “We’re excited to present the first data from our early oncology pipeline, including two investigational BiTE® candidates, which demonstrate our commitment to tackling the toughest scientific questions for cancer patients.”

A complete listing of abstracts can be found on the ASH website. Notable abstracts of interest include:
