Cinfa Biotech announces positive top-line data from second clinical study with pegfilgrastim biosimilar candidate B12019

MAA submission in the EU anticipated in second half of 2017

Pamplona, Spain, 17 May 2017 - Cinfa Biotech S.L., the biosimilars company of Cinfa Group, today announced positive top-line data from the second clinical trial with its lead development candidate B12019, a biosimilar version of Neulasta(R) (pegfilgrastim) to treat chemotherapy-induced neutropenia. The trial demonstrated comparability of B12019 and its reference product Neulasta with regards to pharmacodynamics (PD) and immunogenicity. All primary and secondary study endpoints were met.

The multiple-dose, randomised, double-blind, three-period cross-over study enrolled 96 healthy volunteers in Germany. The study design was based on scientific advice from the European Medicines Agency (EMA) and was tailored to the specific properties of pegfilgrastim. The study met its primary endpoints: area under the effect curve (AUEC0-last) for PD and anti-drug antibody rate (ADA) for immunogenicity, confirming comparability to Neulasta. Likewise, all secondary endpoints were achieved. The safety of B12019 was also comparable to Neulasta. Further data from the trial will be presented at upcoming scientific conferences.

Dr Ruediger Jankowsky, Managing Director of Cinfa Biotech GmbH, commented:
"The positive results of our second study confirm the biosimilarity of B12019 and Neulasta that we demonstrated in the first trial. Both studies, together with the analytical and functional comparability data, support the high quality of our product candidate. Based on the now available comprehensive data package for B12019, we are preparing to submit for EU approval in the second half of 2017. I am proud of the team for having completed such an efficient clinical development program on time."

Pegfilgrastim is indicated for the treatment of chemotherapy-induced neutropenia. The pegylated granulocyte colony-stimulating factor (G-CSF) receptor agonist is used to stimulate bone marrow to produce more neutrophils to decrease the incidence of infection in patients undergoing chemotherapy.
