On March 28, AstraZeneca (AZN) issued a press release announcing its collaboration with Daiichi Sankyo for the development and commercialization of trastuzumab deruxtecan, an investigational therapy currently being evaluated for multiple HER2-expressing cancers.
AstraZeneca (AZN) and Merck's PARP inhibitor, Lynparza, gets approval in EU as a front-line therapy for BRCA-mutated advanced ovarian cancer.
In the first quarter, Lynparza garnered revenue of $237 million for AstraZeneca (AZN), a YoY (year-over-year) rise of more than 105% driven mainly by its ongoing launch as a second-line maintenance therapy for ovarian cancer and as a therapy for germline BRCA-mutated metastatic breast cancer in the US and Japan.
Lynparza, being jointly developed by AstraZeneca along with U.S. drugmaker Merck & Co , can now be used in patients who are in response following chemotherapy for advanced BRCA-mutated ovarian cancer in Europe, AstraZeneca said. BRCA genes are responsible for producing proteins which repair damaged DNA, and if the genes are mutated, they can cause cancer growth.
British drugmaker AstraZeneca Plc on Tuesday said its cancer medicine Lynparza was approved as a first-line maintenance treatment for a type of advanced ovarian cancer by the European Commission, following a panel's consent in April. Lynparza, being jointly developed by AstraZeneca along with U.S. drugmaker Merck & Co, can now be used in patients who are in response following chemotherapy for advanced BRCA-mutated ovarian cancer in Europe, AstraZeneca said.
AstraZeneca's (AZN) Tagrisso was approved by the FDA first for the treatment of epidermal growth factor receptor T790M mutation-positive metastatic non-small cell lung cancer and then as a first-line therapy for EGFR-mutated NSCLC. The drug has become the highest-selling drug in AstraZeneca’s portfolio.
On its first-quarter earnings conference call, AstraZeneca (AZN) guided for year-over-year product sales growth in high-single-digit percentage in 2019. The company, however, expects modest product sales growth in the second half of 2019 due to higher oncology revenue in the previous period.
Merck & Co. (MRK) is up 8.49%, and AstraZeneca (AZN) is up 5.08% in 2019 on a year-to-date basis. Merck continues to ride on the success of its leading immuno-oncology drug, Keytruda. AstraZeneca’s oncology drugs Tagrisso and Lynparza have emerged as key revenue drivers for it in 2019.
AstraZeneca's (AZN) Calquence monotherapy prolongs progression-free survival significantly in relapsed or refractory CLL patients compared to Roche's Rituxan.
An encouraging 88% of patients on CALQUENCE remained free of disease progression after 12 months, vs. 68% of patients on rituximab combined with idelalisib or bendamustine
