BIOCORP Signs Distribution Agreement for Mallya Technology With Roche Diabetes Care France

Share

Regulatory News:

BIOCORP (Paris:ALCOR) (FR0012788065 – ALCOR / Eligible PEA PME), a French company specialized in the development and manufacturing of medical devices and smart drug delivery systems, announces today the signature of a distribution contract for its Mallya connected device with Roche Diabetes Care France.

As part of the agreement, Roche Diabetes Care France will distribute Mallya to pharmacies in France. This medical device is an intelligent 2-year reusable injector pen sensor that is compatible with the majority of insulin injection pens, both disposable and reusable. It automatically collects the insulin dose delivered with near 100% accuracy.

In the future, Mallya will also be part of the RocheDiabetes ecosystem consisting of connected blood glucose meters (Accu-Chek Mobile, Accu-Chek Guide) and digital solutions for better patients care.

Gluci-Chek is a smartphone application regularly used by nearly 60,000 diabetic patients in France. It brings together three major functionalities for personalized diabetes management: a carbohydrate calculation tool with visualization of portions on the plate, a self-monitoring glycemic logbook and a graphic visualization of glycemic results.

Thanks to Mallya, the patient will no longer have to manually report the insulin doses injected in the future since, once the sensor is paired with the Gluci-Chek application, the data will be automatically reported and displayed in the blood glucose monitoring logbook, regardless of the insulin pen1.

Frédéric Jacquey, President of Roche Diabetes Care France: “The signature of this agreement with Biocorp represents a fundamental step in the development of our ecosystem to improve the care of diabetic patients and their exchanges with healthcare professionals. With innovative technology like Mallya, we will soon be able to offer a unique offering for optimal patient care that integrates blood glucose data from our meters via Gluci-Chek and automatic insulin data via Mallya.”

Éric Dessertenne, CEO of BIOCORP: “Roche is the second pharmaceutical giant to integrate our Mallya connected device for optimal monitoring of diabetic patients into its commercial offer. I would like to thank the teams at Roche Diabetes Care France for their responsiveness over the last few weeks. This new structuring agreement confirms the ambitions presented to all our shareholders in early 2020 on the market of digitalization of diabetes and the considerable commercial potential of Mallya. With a partner of the calibre of Roche, we are confident that a large number of diabetics will quickly be able to benefit from the real benefits offered by Mallya on the secure monitoring of their daily insulin intake."

Janssen Presents Findings from Global, Multi-Centre Trial Examining Amivantamab in Combination with Lazertinib in Patients with EGFR-Mutated Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer21.9.2020 02:01:00 EESTPress release

FOR EU TRADE AND MEDICAL MEDIA ONLY. NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION IN BENELUX. The Janssen Pharmaceutical Companies of Johnson & Johnson announced yesterday interim results from the CHRYSALIS study (NCT02609776) evaluating amivantamab, a fully human bispecific antibody that targets epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) and mesenchymal epithelial transition factor (MET) mutations,1 in combination with the third-generation EGFR tyrosine kinase inhibitor (TKI) lazertinib2 in patients with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) with EGFR exon 19 deletions or L858R mutations.3 Investigators assessed efficacy using overall response rate (ORR) per Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumours Version 1.1 (RECIST v1.1), clinical benefit rate, duration of response and the safety profile of amivantamab and lazertinib, in the 91 patients treated with the combination across dose escalation and expansion cohorts.3 The study results were presented at the European Society for Medical Oncology (ESMO) Virtual Con

ESMO 2020: Cabometyx® (cabozantinib) in Combination With Opdivo® (nivolumab) Demonstrates Significant Survival Benefits in Patients With Advanced Renal Cell Carcinoma in Pivotal Phase III CheckMate -9ER Trial19.9.2020 19:30:00 EESTPress release

Regulatory News: Ipsen (Euronext: IPN; ADR: IPSEY) today announced the first presentation of results from the pivotal Phase III CheckMate -9ER trial, in which Cabometyx® (cabozantinib) in combination with Bristol Myers Squibb’s Opdivo® (nivolumab) demonstrated significant improvements across all efficacy endpoints, including overall survival (OS), in previously untreated advanced renal cell carcinoma (RCC).1 Cabometyx® in combination with Opdivo® reduced the risk of death by 40% versus sunitinib (HR: 0.60 [98.89% Confidence Interval [CI]: 0.40–0.89]; p= 0.0010; median OS not reached in either arm). In patients receiving Cabometyx® in combination with Opdivo®, median progression-free survival (PFS), the trial’s primary endpoint, was doubled compared to those receiving sunitinib alone: 16.6 months versus 8.3 months respectively (Hazard Ratio [HR]: 0.51 [95% CI 0.41–0.64], p < 0.0001). In addition, Cabometyx® in combination with Opdivo® demonstrated a superior objective response rate, wit

Takeda is also featuring updated 10-month follow-up results from the Phase 1/2 trial of mobocertinib (TAK-788), demonstrating mobocertinib achieved a duration of response (DoR) of more than one year in the trial’s study population of patients with epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) Exon20 insertion+ metastatic NSCLC (mNSCLC). “We’re pleased to present our ongoing research in lung cancer at this year’s virtual ESMO congress, including new

Incyte Announces Encouraging Results From Phase 2 Trial of Retifanlimab (INCMGA0012) in Patients With Previously Treated, Advanced Squamous Cell Carcinoma of the Anal Canal18.9.2020 13:00:00 EESTPress release

Incyte (Nasdaq:INCY) today announced results from its Phase 2 POD1UM-202 trial evaluating retifanlimab, a PD-1 inhibitor, in previously treated patients with advanced squamous cell carcinoma of the anal canal (SCAC) who have progressed following standard platinum-based chemotherapy. The trial enrolled 94 patients, including those with well-controlled human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection (10%). Retifanlimab monotherapy resulted in a confirmed objective response rate (ORR) of 14% as determined by independent central review (ICR) using RECIST v1.1. Responses were observed regardless of PD-L1 status, presence of liver metastases, age or HIV+ status. Retifanlimab was generally well-tolerated with a safety profile as expected of a PD-1 inhibitor and no loss of HIV infection control.
