Two weeks ago, results from Phase I/II study in which patients with metastatic urothelial cancer – whose disease progressed after platinum-based standard chemotherapy and after immunotherapy – responded to treatment with a new drug that still has no commercial name: Sacituzumab Govitecan, IMMU-132 or SN38.
There are almost no treatments to offer to patients with metastatic urothelial cancer who have failed on Platinum-based chemotherapy and immunotherapy. Therefore, these results encourage and give new hope to these patients.
IMMU-132 is a a monoclonal antibody targeting Trop-2, an epithelial cell surface antigen overexpressed in urothelial cancer.
45 patients joined the study and received IMMU-132.
47% of patients responded: In 7 patients the disease was stopped, in 12 the metastases have shrunk and in 2 patients… yes, yes … the metastases disappeared and they reached full remission!
Following these amazing results, a follow-up Phase II study was launched in the US and will recruit 140 patients.
