FOR EMEA MEDIA ONLY - NOT FOR SWISS/AUSTRIAN/US JOURNALISTS  

Eisai highlights 17 new data abstracts for eribulin in metastatic breast cancer at the San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium (SABCS), San Antonio, USA, 6-10 December.

Eribulin is indicated in the European Union for the treatment of adults with locally advanced or metastatic breast cancer who have progressed after at least one chemotherapeutic regimen for advanced disease. Prior therapy should have included an anthracycline and a taxane unless patients were not suitable for these treatments.[1]

"Eribulin has previously demonstrated a clinically meaningful overall survival benefit in two pivotal studies in advanced breast cancer and advanced sarcoma. Eisai remains fully committed to continue developing eribulin and we look forward to the presentation of these results at the SABCS," comments Gary Hendler Chief Commercial Officer, Global Oncology Business Group and Chairman & CEO EMEA.

The continued development of its oncology portfolio underscores Eisai's human health care (hhc) mission, the company's commitment to innovative solutions in disease prevention, cure and care for the health and wellbeing of people worldwide. Eisai is committed to the therapeutic area of oncology and to address the unmet medical needs of people with cancer and their families.

Notes to Editors   

About Metastatic Breast Cancer   

More than 300,000 women are diagnosed with breast cancer in Europe every year and about one third subsequently develop metastatic disease.[2] At this advanced stage, the cancer spreads beyond the breast to other parts of the body.

About Halaven® (eribulin)   

Eribulin is the first in the halichondrin class of microtubule dynamics inhibitors with a novel mechanism of action. Structurally eribulin is a simplified and synthetically produced version of halichondrin B, a natural product isolated from the marine sponge Halichondria okadai. Eribulin is believed to work by inhibiting the growth phase of microtubule dynamics that prevents cell division.

The European Commission approved in May 2016 a variation to the terms of the Marketing Authorisation of eribulin for the treatment of adult patients with unresectable liposarcomas who have received prior anthracycline containing therapy (unless unsuitable) for advanced or metastatic disease.

Eisai in Oncology   

Eisai is committed to the development and delivery of highly beneficial new treatments for people with cancer. The development of therapeutic options in oncology is a major strategic area for Eisai in Europe, the Middle East, Africa, Russia and Oceania (EMEA). In the European Union, Eisai currently has three marketed treatments across four indications:

  • Lenvima® (lenvatinib) is indicated in the European Union for the treatment of adult patients with progressive locally advanced or metastatic, differentiated (papillary, follicular, Hürthle cell) thyroid carcinoma (DTC) refractory to radioactive iodine (RAI).
  • Kisplyx® (lenvatinib) is indicated in the European Union in combination with everolimus for the treatment of adult patients with advanced renal cell carcinoma (RCC) following one prior vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF)-targeted therapy.
  • Halaven® (eribulin) is indicated for the treatment of adult patients with locally advanced or metastatic breast cancer who have received at least one chemotherapeutic regimen for advanced disease. Prior therapy should have included an anthracycline and a taxane in either the adjuvant or metastatic setting, unless patients were not suitable for these treatments. Halaven® (eribulin) is also indicated for the treatment of adult patients with unresectable liposarcomas who have received prior anthracycline containing therapy (unless unsuitable) for advanced or metastatic disease.
