It further highlights the inactive pipeline products in this space.

 

Latest Developmental Activities in the Advanced Merkel Cell Carcinoma Treatment Landscape

 

  • On March 22, 2023, Retifanlimab-dlwr (Zynyz, Incyte Corporation) received accelerated clearance from the Food and Drug Administration, for the treatment of adult patients with metastatic or recurrent locally advanced Merkel cell cancer (MCC).

 

  • The approval is based on Data from the key Phase 3 KEYNOTE-091 trial, also known as EORTC-1416-LCG/ETOP-8-15 – PEARLS, served as the foundation for the approval. Disease-free survival, as determined by the investigator, was the primary effectiveness outcome measure (DFS). KEYTRUDA decreased the risk of disease recurrence or mortality by 27% in patients who underwent adjuvant platinum-based chemotherapy after surgical resection, regardless of PD-L1 expression (hazard ratio [HR]=0.73 [95% CI, 0.60-0.89]). The median DFS was nearly five years (58.7 months) for the KEYTRUDA arm and nearly three years (34.9 months) for the placebo arm in patients who underwent surgical resection and received adjuvant platinum-based chemotherapy, regardless of PD-L1 expression. This translates to a nearly two-year (23.8 months) DFS improvement over placebo. Of the 167 patients (14%) who did not receive adjuvant treatment, an exploratory subgroup analysis was conducted.

 

  • Endometrial cancer has a robust clinical development programme at Merck. For the treatment of patients with advanced endometrial carcinoma who are pMMR, as determined by an FDA-approved test, or who are not microsatellite instability-high (MSI-H), who have disease progression after prior systemic therapy in any setting, and who are not candidates for curative surgery or radiation, Keytruda has two approved indications in the United States: in combination with LENVIMA® (lenvatinib), in collaboration with Eisai; and as a single agent.

 

  • In 2016, Exelixis granted Ipsen Pharma SAS exclusive rights for the commercialization and further clinical development of cabozantinib outside of the U.S. and Japan. In 2017, Exelixis granted exclusive rights to Takeda Pharmaceutical Company Limited for the commercialization and further clinical development of cabozantinib for all future indications in Japan. Exelixis holds the exclusive rights to develop and commercialize cabozantinib in the U.S.Currently, the drug is in Phase II stage of Clinical trial evaluation for the treatment of Advanced Merkel cell carcinoma.

Advanced Merkel Cell Carcinoma Emerging Drugs Profile

 

  • Tidutamab: Xencor, Inc.

Tidutamab (previously XmAb18087) is a bispecific antibody that engages the immune system against tumors by binding to somatostatin receptor 2 (SSTR2) and CD3. Xencor’s XmAb® Bispecific Fc Domain serves as the scaffold for these two antigen binding domains and confers long circulating half-life, stability and ease of manufacture on tidutamab. Engagement of CD3 by tidutamab activates T cells for highly potent and targeted killing of SSTR2-expressing tumor cells.

 

  • Cabozantinib: Exelixis

In the U.S., CABOMETYX tablets are approved for the treatment of patients with advanced renal cell carcinoma (RCC); for the treatment of patients with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) who have been previously treated with sorafenib; for patients with advanced RCC as a first-line treatment in combination with nivolumab; and for adult and pediatric patients 12 years of age and older with locally advanced or metastatic differentiated thyroid cancer (DTC) that has progressed following prior vascular endothelial growth factor receptor (VEGFR)-targeted therapy and who are radioactive iodine-refractory or ineligible. CABOMETYX tablets have also received regulatory approvals in the European Union and additional countries and regions worldwide. In 2016, Exelixis granted Ipsen Pharma SAS exclusive rights for the commercialization and further clinical development of cabozantinib outside of the U.S. and Japan.
