Karyopharm Announces XPOVIO® (selinexor) Data to be Presented at the European Hematology Association 2021 Virtual Congress

·14 min read

NEWTON, Mass., June 9, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Karyopharm Therapeutics Inc. (Nasdaq: KPTI), a commercial-stage pharmaceutical company pioneering novel cancer therapies, today announced that nine abstracts have been selected for virtual presentation, including one oral presentation, at the upcoming European Hematology Association (EHA) 2021 Virtual Congress taking place June 9-17, 2021.

Key abstracts to be presented at the meeting will feature clinical data for XPOVIO® (selinexor), the Company's first in class, oral Selective Inhibitor of Nuclear Export (SINE) compound, including: (i) multiple new subgroup analyses from the pivotal Phase 3 BOSTON study, including data results evaluating XPOVIO treatment for patients over the age of 65 years old, patients with RAS-mutated multiple myeloma, patients previously treated with Revlimid® (lenalidomide), and genomic predictors of efficacy; (ii) updated data from the Kyprolis® (carfilzomib) and Pomalyst® (pomalidomide) arms of the Phase 1b/2 STOMP study evaluating XPOVIO in combination with standard of care agents in previously treated multiple myeloma; (iii) evaluation of XPOVIO combinations in patients with multiple myeloma following treatment with anti-CD38 monoclonal antibodies; (iv) the effect of lymphocyte count on safety and efficacy in the Phase 2b SADAL study evaluating XPOVIO in patients with diffuse large B-cell lymphoma; and (v) updated overall survival data from a Phase 1/2 study evaluating oral eltanexor, the Company's second generation SINE compound, in patients with hypomethylating-agent refractory myelodysplastic syndrome.

"We are pleased to see such a broad display of data from our clinical programs presented at EHA this year. In particular, we are encouraged that updated data from the Kyprolis® arm of the STOMP study was selected for an oral presentation," said Sharon Shacham, PhD, MBA, Chief Scientific Officer of Karyopharm. "More specifically, in the STOMP study, heavily pretreated multiple myeloma patients receiving once weekly XPOVIO in combination with once-weekly Kyprolis® and dexamethasone achieved an overall response rate of 78% (25/32 patients), including 16% (5/32 patients) who achieved a complete response. High response rates were observed whether or not the patients had received prior anti-CD38 monoclonal antibody therapy and adverse events in the study were generally consistent with other previously reported XPOVIO studies in multiple myeloma. We look forward to sharing these results and other XPOVIO data with the broader medical and scientific community."

About XPOVIO® (selinexor)

XPOVIO is a first-in-class, oral Selective Inhibitor of Nuclear Export (SINE) compound. XPOVIO functions by selectively binding to and inhibiting the nuclear export protein exportin 1 (XPO1, also called CRM1). XPOVIO blocks the nuclear export of tumor suppressor, growth regulatory and anti-inflammatory proteins, leading to accumulation of these proteins in the nucleus and enhancing their anti-cancer activity in the cell. The forced nuclear retention of these proteins can counteract a multitude of the oncogenic pathways that, unchecked, allow cancer cells with severe DNA damage to continue to grow and divide in an unrestrained fashion. Karyopharm received accelerated U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval of XPOVIO in July 2019 in combination with dexamethasone for the treatment of adult patients with relapsed refractory multiple myeloma (RRMM) who have received at least four prior therapies and whose disease is refractory to at least two proteasome inhibitors, at least two immunomodulatory agents, and an anti-CD38 monoclonal antibody. NEXPOVIO® (selinexor) has also been granted conditional marketing authorization for adult patients with heavily pretreated multiple myeloma by the European Commission. Karyopharm's supplemental New Drug Application (sNDA) requesting an expansion of its indication to include the treatment for patients with multiple myeloma after at least one prior therapy was approved by the FDA on December 18, 2020. In June 2020, Karyopharm received accelerated FDA approval of XPOVIO for its second indication in adult patients with relapsed or refractory diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL), not otherwise specified, including DLBCL arising from follicular lymphoma, after at least 2 lines of systemic therapy. Selinexor is also being evaluated in several other mid-and later-phase clinical trials across multiple cancer indications, including as a potential backbone therapy in combination with approved myeloma therapies (STOMP) and in endometrial cancer (SIENDO), among others. Additional Phase 1, Phase 2 and Phase 3 studies are ongoing or currently planned, including multiple studies in combination with approved therapies in a variety of tumor types to further inform Karyopharm's clinical development priorities for selinexor. Additional clinical trial information for selinexor is available at www.clinicaltrials.gov.

SELECT IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION

Warnings and Precautions

  • Thrombocytopenia: Monitor platelet counts throughout treatment. Manage with dose interruption and/or reduction and supportive care.

  • Neutropenia: Monitor neutrophil counts throughout treatment. Manage with dose interruption and/or reduction and granulocyte colony–stimulating factors.

  • Gastrointestinal Toxicity: Nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, anorexia, and weight loss may occur. Provide antiemetic prophylaxis. Manage with dose interruption and/or reduction, antiemetics, and supportive care.

  • Hyponatremia: Monitor serum sodium levels throughout treatment. Correct for concurrent hyperglycemia and high serum paraprotein levels. Manage with dose interruption, reduction, or discontinuation, and supportive care.

  • Serious Infection: Monitor for infection and treat promptly.

  • Neurological Toxicity: Advise patients to refrain from driving and engaging in hazardous occupations or activities until neurological toxicity resolves. Optimize hydration status and concomitant medications to avoid dizziness or mental status changes.

  • Embryo–Fetal Toxicity: Can cause fetal harm. Advise females of reproductive potential and males with a female partner of reproductive potential, of the potential risk to a fetus and use of effective contraception.

  • Cataract: Cataracts may develop or progress. Treatment of cataracts usually requires surgical removal of the cataract.

Adverse Reactions

Treatment discontinuation rate due to adverse reactions was 19%.

  • The most common adverse reactions (≥20%) in patients with multiple myeloma who receive Xd are thrombocytopenia, fatigue, nausea, anemia, decreased appetite, decreased weight, diarrhea, vomiting, hyponatremia, neutropenia, leukopenia, constipation, dyspnea and upper respiratory tract infection. In the STORM trial, fatal adverse reactions occurred in 9% of patients. Serious adverse reactions occurred in 58% of patients. Treatment discontinuation rate due to adverse reactions was 27%.

  • The most common adverse reactions (incidence ≥20%) in patients with DLBCL, excluding laboratory abnormalities, are fatigue, nausea, diarrhea, appetite decrease, weight decrease, constipation, vomiting, and pyrexia. Grade 3–4 laboratory abnormalities (≥15%) are thrombocytopenia, lymphopenia, neutropenia, anemia, and hyponatremia. In the SADAL trial, fatal adverse reactions occurred in 3.7% of patients within 30 days, and 5% of patients within 60 days of last treatment; the most frequent fatal adverse reactions was infection (4.5% of patients). Serious adverse reactions occurred in 46% of patients; the most frequent serious adverse reaction was infection(21% of patients).

About Eltanexor (KPT-8602)

Eltanexor (KPT-8602) is a second generation oral SINE compound, which is currently being investigated in clinical trials. Eltanexor functions by binding to and inhibiting the nuclear export protein XPO1 (also called CRM1), leading to the accumulation of tumor suppressor proteins in the cell nucleus. Eltanexor has demonstrated minimal brain penetration in animals, which has been associated with reduced toxicities in preclinical studies while maintaining potent anti-tumor effects.
