  • Nineteen abstracts accepted, including multiple presentations on the safety and efficacy of investigational epcoritamab (DuoBody®-CD3xCD20) in a variety of treatment settings and hematologic malignancies
  • Four oral presentations highlighting data evaluating epcoritamab for the treatment of relapsed/refractory (R/R) large B-cell lymphoma (LBCL), R/R follicular lymphoma (FL), previously untreated FL, and Richter's syndrome
  • New data evaluating investigational medicines in Genmab’s early portfolio of cancer immunotherapies will also be presented
  • Genmab to host 2022 R&D Update and ASH Data Review meeting December 12


Genmab A/S (Nasdaq: GMAB) announced today that 19 abstracts evaluating various investigational medicines in its pipeline have been accepted for presentation at the 64th Annual Meeting and Exposition of the American Society of Hematology (ASH), being held at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center in New Orleans, Louisiana, and virtually, December 10-13. The presentations will include four oral and six poster presentations highlighting data from several clinical trials evaluating the safety and efficacy of epcoritamab (DuoBody®-CD3xCD20), an investigational subcutaneous IgG1-bispecific antibody created using Genmab's proprietary DuoBody technology, alone or in combination for the treatment of patients with relapsed or refractory (R/R) large B-cell lymphoma (LBCL), including diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL), R/R follicular lymphoma (FL), previously untreated FL and Richter’s syndrome.

Additionally, abstracts evaluating two investigational medicines in Genmab’s early pipeline have been accepted for presentation, including the first-in-human data from the phase 1/2 trial evaluating GEN3014 (HexaBody®-CD38), an investigational novel human CD38 monoclonal antibody, in patients with R/R multiple myeloma (MM). In addition, preclinical data from a novel drug candidate GEN3017 (DuoBody®-CD3xCD30) will also be presented.

All abstracts accepted for presentation have been published on the ASH website.

Epcoritamab is being co-developed by Genmab and AbbVie as part of the companies' oncology collaboration. The companies are committed to evaluating epcoritamab as a monotherapy, and in combination, across lines of therapy in a range of B-cell malignancies, including an ongoing phase 3, open-label, randomized clinical trial evaluating epcoritamab as a monotherapy in patients with relapsed/refractory LBCL, including DLBCL (NCT: 04628494) and a phase 3, open-label randomized clinical trial evaluating epcoritamab in combination in patients with relapsed/refractory follicular lymphoma (FL) (NCT: 05409066).

“As part of our commitment to the blood cancer community, we continue to advance our research and innovative technologies in an effort to develop differentiated therapies with the goal of transforming the future of treatment for patients,” said Dr. Judith Klimovsky, Executive Vice President and Chief Development Officer of Genmab. “The robust data being presented at this year’s American Society of Hematology meeting are encouraging and support the potential of epcoritamab to become a core therapy for B-cell malignancies.”

About Epcoritamab
Epcoritamab is an investigational IgG1-bispecific antibody created using Genmab's proprietary DuoBody technology. Genmab's DuoBody-CD3 technology is designed to direct cytotoxic T cells selectively to elicit an immune response towards target cell types. Epcoritamab is designed to simultaneously bind to CD3 on T cells and CD20 on B-cells and induces T cell mediated killing of CD20+ cells.i CD20 is expressed on B-cells and a clinically validated therapeutic target in many B-cell malignancies, including diffuse large B-cell lymphoma, follicular lymphoma, mantle cell lymphoma and chronic lymphocytic leukemia.ii,iii
