Incyte (Nasdaq: INCY) and MorphoSys AG (NASDAQ: MOR) today announced the first patient has been dosed in the placebo-controlled Phase 3 inMIND study evaluating the efficacy and safety of tafasitamab or placebo in combination with lenalidomide and rituximab in patients with relapsed or refractory follicular lymphoma (FL) or marginal zone lymphoma (MZL).
“Despite improvements in treatment for patients with relapsed or refractory FL and MZL, there continues to be a significant medical need for additional therapies with improved outcomes,” said Peter Langmuir, M.D., Group Vice President, Oncology Targeted Therapeutics, Incyte. “We are pleased to have initiated the inMIND study as we seek meaningful, new options for patients with relapsed or refractory FL or MZL.”
FL and MZL are the most common indolent, or slow growing, forms of B-Cell non-Hodgkin lymphomas (NHLs). FL and MZL account for approximately 20-25% and 7% of adult NHL cases, respectively.1 There are limited treatment options for the more than 17,000 new cases of relapsed or refractory FL treated every year in the United States, Europe and Japan.2
"We are looking forward to building on previous, exploratory data in FL, and the results seen with tafasitamab and lenalidomide in relapsed or refractory diffuse large B-cell lymphoma, to evaluate the potential benefit of adding tafasitamab to the current lenalidomide and rituximab combination regimen in patients with indolent lymphomas,” said Mike Akimov, M.D., Ph.D., Head of Global Drug Development, MorphoSys.
On January 7, 2021, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration granted orphan drug designation to tafasitamab for the treatment of FL.
inMIND (NCT04680052), a global, double-blind, placebo-controlled, randomized Phase 3 study, is evaluating whether tafasitamab and lenalidomide as an add-on to rituximab provides improved clinical benefit compared with lenalidomide alone as an add-on to rituximab in patients with relapsed or refractory follicular lymphoma (FL) Grade 1 to 3a or relapsed or refractory nodal, splenic or extranodal marginal zone lymphoma (MZL). The study is expected to enroll over 600 adult (age ≥18 years) patients with relapsed or refractory FL or MZL.
The primary endpoint of the study is progression-free survival (PFS) in the FL population, and the key secondary endpoints are PFS and overall survival (OS) in the overall population as well as positron emission tomography complete response (PET-CR) at the end of treatment (EOT) in the FL population.
