Seattle Genetics, Inc. (Nasdaq: SGEN) highlighted multiple data presentations at the 10th International Symposium on Hodgkin Lymphoma (ISHL) taking place in Cologne, Germany, October 22-25, 2016, evaluating ADCETRIS (brentuximab vedotin) across a broad range of Hodgkin lymphoma (HL) disease settings. ADCETRIS is an antibody-drug conjugate (ADC) directed to CD30, a defining marker of classical HL that plays a role in tumor pathogenesis. ADCETRIS is being evaluated globally as the foundation of therapy for HL in more than 45 ongoing corporate- and investigator-sponsored clinical trials.

“For more than a decade, we have been committed to improving treatment outcomes for classical HL patients. We have made tremendous progress with ADCETRIS, which is now FDA-approved for two HL indications in the U.S. and Europe and is being evaluated broadly across all lines of therapy and in many novel regimens,” said Jonathan Drachman, M.D., Chief Medical Officer and Executive Vice President, Research and Development at Seattle Genetics. “The data presented at ISHL continue to advance our goal of establishing ADCETRIS as the foundation of care for HL. With 21 abstracts accepted for presentation, we, along with our partner Takeda, are pleased to share new and updated data with the scientific community at ISHL to help move the field forward.”

Data presented at ISHL include an update of the progression-free survival and safety from the phase 3 AETHERA trial approximately four years since the last patient was enrolled, demonstrating sustained progression-free survival benefit after extended observation. In addition, updates will be presented from trials evaluating ADCETRIS as both mono- and combination therapy in frontline HL patients age 60 and older, and as second-line therapy for relapsed or refractory HL. Lastly, preclinical data will be presented indicating additional potential mechanisms of action for ADCETRIS, including immunogenic cell death, supporting evaluation of combination therapy with immuno-oncology agents.

Multiple corporate and investigator presentations will be featured at ISHL. Abstracts can be found at and include the following:
