Press Release: BeyondSpring’s Rationale for the Plinabulin-Neulasta Combination for Neutropenia Prevention Accepted as Abstracts at 2019 ASCO Annual Meeting


NEW YORK, May 16, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- BeyondSpring Inc. (NASDAQ: BYSI), a global biopharmaceutical company focused on the development of innovative cancer therapies, today announced that two of the Company’s abstracts on its lead asset, Plinabulin, have been accepted for publication in the Proceedings of this year’s ASCO Annual Meeting. The data, derived from BeyondSpring’s Phase 2 Study 106, provides a strong rationale for the Plinabulin Neulasta (pegfilgrastim) combination for the prevention of chemotherapy-induced neutropenia (CIN) for improved CIN control. Additionally, the Plinabulin Neulasta combination nearly eliminated patients’ treatment-related bone pain. Study 106 Phase 2 included breast cancer patients receiving TAC (docetaxel, doxorubicin, cyclophosphamide) which has risk for febrile neutropenia.
BeyondSpring’s first abstract (No. e12030), “Comparison of 6mg Pegfilgrastim, Plinabulin and the Combination for CIN Prevention: Rationale for the Combination,” evaluates whether combining Plinabulin with Neulasta, would protect patients against CIN throughout the entire chemotherapy cycle. The two agents have different mechanisms of action, with Plinabulin predominantly protective in the first week of the cycle, and Neulasta predominantly protective in the second week of the cycle. Protection was measured by evaluating the absolute neutrophil count (ANC). The data shows that Plinabulin, when added to the standard dose of Neulasta, offered CIN protection throughout the entire cycle, something that could not be achieved by each of these agents alone. The addition of Plinabulin to Neulasta, almost completely eliminated the Neulasta-induced bone pain, reducing its incidence of at least 1 day of bone-pain from 95 percent (with the standard dose of Neulasta) to 6 percent (with the Plinabulin-Neulasta combination) (p < 0.0001).BeyondSpring’s second abstract (No. e12017), “Plinabulin Combined with Half Dose (3mg) Pegfilgrastim, Compared with Full Dose (6mg) Pegfilgrastim Alone for CIN: Neutrophil, Bone Pain and Immunosuppressive Effects,” compared patients who received a combination of Plinabulin with a half dose of Neulasta to patients who received a full dose of Neulasta alone to test the effects on CIN, bone pain and the immune-suppressive profile. The data highlights that a half dose of Neulasta, combined with Plinabulin, is equally effective against CIN as a full dose of Neulasta alone (demonstrating a strong neutropenia benefit). In addition, the combination therapy offered significantly lower levels of bone pain for patients, as well, along...
