Samsung Bioepis Reports One-Year Follow-Up Results for Trastuzumab Biosimilar

According to an announcement by Samsung Bioepis, an additional one-year follow-up study on SB3, a biosimilar candidate referencing Herceptin® (trastuzumab), showed low incidence of cardiac safety events and no statistically significant difference in survival results compared to trastuzumab in patients with HER2-positive early or locally advanced breast cancer. The data were made available as an abstract publication at the 2018 American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) Annual Meeting, held June 1-5, 2018 in Chicago.

The BLA for SB3 was accepted for review in December 2017 and is currently under FDA review.
