Kite Pharma, Inc. (Nasdaq: KITE) announced that data from the interim analysis of the pivotal ZUMA-1 trial of KTE-C19 in patients with chemorefractory aggressive non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL) have been accepted as an oral late-breaking presentation at the American Society of Hematology (ASH) 58th Annual Meeting in San Diego, CA, on December 6, 2016. The abstract was one of only six accepted in this category and will be included in the December 1 online issue of Blood.

“Outcomes for patients with aggressive NHL depend on whether their disease is sensitive to chemotherapy. The ZUMA-1 study was designed to support registration of KTE-C19 by enrolling a well-defined chemorefractory patient population,” said Jeff Wiezorek, M.D., Senior Vice President of Clinical Development of Kite. “We are pleased with the outcome of the study to date and thank the patients and investigators for their participation in the first positive pivotal study in CAR-T therapy.”

The abstract, titled “KTE-C19 (anti-CD19 CAR T Cells) Induces Complete Remissions in Patients with Refractory Diffuse Large B-Cell Lymphoma (DLBCL): Results from the Pivotal Phase 2 ZUMA-1,” will be presented by Sattva S. Neelapu, M.D., Associate Professor at the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, Houston, TX.
