New data from the Janssen Pharmaceutical Companies of Johnson & Johnson will be presented at this year’s American Society of Clinical Oncology Genitourinary (ASCO GU) Cancers Symposium 2018 taking place February 8-10 in San Francisco. In total, 14 company-sponsored abstracts with data for both investigational and approved compounds have been accepted for presentation, including for apalutamide and ZYTIGA® (abiraterone acetate) in prostate cancer, and for erdafitinib in urothelial cancer.

About abiraterone acetate

Abiraterone acetate plus prednisone / prednisolone is the only approved therapy in metastatic prostate cancer that inhibits production of androgens (which fuel prostate cancer growth) at all three sources that are important in prostate cancer - the testes, adrenals and the tumour itself.1,2,3

Indications 3

In 2011, abiraterone acetate in combination with prednisone / prednisolone was approved by the European Commission (EC) for the treatment of mCRPC in adult men whose disease has progressed on or after a docetaxel-based chemotherapy regimen.

In December 2012, the EC granted an extension of the indication for abiraterone acetate permitting its use, in combination with prednisone or prednisolone, for the treatment of mCRPC, in adult men who are asymptomatic or mildly symptomatic after failure of androgen deprivation therapy in whom chemotherapy is not yet clinically indicated.3

On Friday 17th November 2017, the EC granted approval in broadening the existing marketing authorisation for abiraterone acetate plus prednisone / prednisolone for the treatment of newly-diagnosed high-risk metastatic hormone-sensitive prostate cancer (mHSPC) in adult men in combination with androgen deprivation therapy (ADT).3

Further Information 3

The most common adverse reactions seen with abiraterone acetate plus prednisone / prednisolone that were observed in ≥10% of patients were peripheral oedema, hypokalaemia, hypertension urinary tract infection, and alanine aminotransferase increased and/or aspartate aminotransferase increased. Other important adverse reactions include, cardiac disorders, hepatotoxicity, fractures, and allergic alveolitis. For a full list of side effects and for further information on dosage and administration, contraindications and other precautions when using abiraterone acetate plus prednisone / prednisolone please refer to the summary of product characteristics, which is available at: http://www.ema.europa.eu/docs/en_GB/document_library/EPAR_-_Product_Information/human/002321/WC500112858.pdf

About Apalutamide (ARN-509) 4

Apalutamide is an investigational, next-generation oral androgen receptor inhibitor that blocks the androgen signaling pathway in prostate cancer cells, and prevents binding of androgen to the androgen receptor and translocation of the androgen receptor to the nucleus of the cancer cell.

About Erdafitinib 5

Erdafitinib is a pan-fibroblast Growth Factor Receptor (FGFR) tyrosine kinase inhibitor currently being evaluated by Janssen in Phase 2 and 3 clinical trials in patients with advanced urothelial cancer. Additional research is also being conducted to explore the use of erdafitinib in other cancer indications.

SM-Optics Unveils First FLEXSET Chip, Paving the Way to Optical Micro Nodes23.2.2018 17:00Tiedote

SM-Optics launches FLEXSET, a single chip embedding multiple processing functionalities raising the bar for performances, density and architectural flexibility. The FLEXSET is the heart of the Lightmode product family. FLEXSET OTN switching matrix scales from 300Gbps to 1Tbps and can be addressed by ports spanning from traditional low-speed services like 2Mbps over micro-OTN, to layer2 and layer3 over ODUFlex, 100G over ODU4 and 200G over FlexO. Thanks to its embedded capabilities including multi-technology OAM, packet processing, synchronization and fast protection functions, FLEXSET operates by design at the lowest latency performances and features an Intel Stratix 10 FPGA. Following the launch of micro-OTN, a revolutionary approach to efficiently extend OTN protocol to low speed services, the launch of FLEXSET advances the vision of a highly interconnected metro network and of micro nodes. Revolving around functional block elements, micro nodes collapse in few rack units OTN and pho
