HANGZHOU, China, June 06, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- AnHeart Therapeutics Co., Ltd (“AnHeart”), a clinical stage oncology company focused on underserved patients in global markets, together with Innovent Biologics, Inc. (“Innovent”, HKEX: 01801), today jointly announce a presentation of a scientific poster entitled “Preliminary results from TRUST: A phase II clinical study to investigate Taletrectinib in treating patients with ROS1 fusion positive non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC)” which summarizes initial data from its ongoing trial of taletrectinib (NCT04395677) at the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) 2021 Annual Meeting. As of the data cut-off date of April 8, 2021, there were 15 crizotinib treatment-naïve patients and 5 crizotinib pre-treated patients, who had been confirmed to be ROS1 fusion positive and assessed at least twice by investigators. The results were as follows:
“These safety and efficacy data for taletrectinib are very promising for ROS1 fusion positive lung cancer patients,” said Dr. Caicun Zhou, director of the Department of Oncology, Shanghai Pulmonary Hospital. “Responses appear particularly impressive in crizotinib treatment-naïve patients, and while the number of crizotinib pre-treated patients is limited, thus far all five patients continue to benefit from the drug.”
“Our team is highly focused on completing patient enrollment for this phase II TRUST trial in Q3 2021,” said Bing Yan, MD, Co-founder and Chief Medical Officer of AnHeart. “These data from the TRUST trial have built a solid foundation for our upcoming global trials of taletrectinib and will support us in seeking regulatory approvals of taletrectinib in China and globally. We sincerely thank the patients, their families and investigators in the TRUST trial and look forward to bringing taletrectinib to all ROS1 fusion positive patients in the near future upon approval.”
"We are glad to see that the study results of taletrectinib can be presented at the ASCO meeting, the most authoritative clinical oncology conference," said Dr. Hui Zhou, Senior Vice President of Clinical Development, Innovent Biologics, "In China, ROS1 positive fusion patients have limited treatment choices at present. More new drugs are needed in development for clinical application. Taletrectinib has shown good efficacy and safety results, which offers hope to patients with ROS1 fusion positive non-small cell lung cancer."
