Janssen-Cilag International NV announced data from ten company-sponsored abstracts will be presented at the 2016 ESMO Congress in Copenhagen, Denmark, on the 9th and 10th October 2016. The data feature four Janssen medicines spanning multiple disease areas including prostate, urothelial and blood cancer, and showcase Janssen’s broad portfolio in oncology and commitment to patients.

“The data to be presented at ESMO highlights the efficacy and safety profiles of Janssen treatments and also provides insights from a large, real-world prostate cancer patient population on how patients live with, and manage, their disease. Every patient with cancer will face his or her own unique journey and we are committed to helping redefine that journey. We hope that these findings will help us improve outcomes for cancer patients in the future,” said Jane Griffiths, Company Group Chairman, Janssen European, Middle East and Africa (EMEA).

Among the abstracts selected for presentation is data from the Prostate Cancer Registry, the first and largest prospective study of European patients with metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer (mCRPC).

Also in prostate cancer, a follow-up analysis from the COU-AA-302 study, investigating long-term safety of ZYTIGA® (abiraterone acetate) for the treatment of mCRPC, will be presented. In addition, the design of the TITAN and ATLAS trials will be presented; the trials will study the efficacy and safety profiles of apalutamide, a new generation androgen receptor inhibitor, in patients with newly-diagnosed mCRPC.

In bladder cancer, Phase 1 data will be presented around urothelial carcinoma (UC) examining the safety, efficacy and tolerability in patients treated with the pan-fibroblast growth factor receptor (FGFR) inhibitor erdafitinib.

Haematological malignancy data to be featured includes results from the Phase 3 CASTOR study, evaluating DARZALEX® (daratumumab) in combination with bortezomib and dexamethasone, compared to bortezomib and dexamethasone alone in patients with multiple myeloma who received one or more prior lines of therapy. This study has been published in the New England Journal of Medicine and formed the basis for recent submissions to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and European Medicines Agency (EMA), seeking to expand existing licenses for DARZALEX.1
