Celltrion Begins Global Phase 3 Clinical Trial for Its Bevacizumab Biosimilar 'CT-P16'
Celltrion, Inc. (KRX:068270) is set to launch global Phase 3 clinical trial for its bevacizumab biosimilar ‘CT-P16’ for the treatment of cancer.
Celltrion successfully completed Phase 1 clinical study on the safety and pharmacokinetic assessment of CT-P16 in June 2018. Further, it recently submitted its Clinical Trial Application for Phase 3 clinical study to the National Authority of Medicines and Health Products, I.P. (Infarmed) of Portugal.
Beginning with Portugal, Celltrion is set to conduct Phase 3 clinical trial for CT-P16 in about 150 sites in some 20 nations across Europe, Asia and South America.
Meanwhile, Roche’s Avastin® , the originator of CT-P16, is a therapeutic anti-cancer drug for the treatment of metastatic colorectal cancer, metastatic breast cancer, non-small cell lung cancer, and glioblastoma. It last year recorded global sales of about USD 6.7 billion1 , making it blockbuster medicine.
“We are successfully conducting the clinical trial for the bevacizumab biosimilar ‘CT-P16’ as planned. We will secure the competitiveness for CT-P16 compared with its competitive biosimilars.” says an official of Celltrion.
