Stallergenes Greer, a biopharmaceutical company specialising in treatments for allergies, announces the publication of an article titled “Personalized Medicine for allergy treatment: AIT, still a unique and unmatched model” in the EAACI’s (European Academy of Allergy and Clinical Immunology) official journal Allergy.

The publication marks a clear consensus on allergen immunotherapy (AIT). It was co-authored by 49 world-renowned allergy specialists from 40 countries and coordinated by Professor Giorgio Walter Canonica, Personalised Medicine, Asthma and Allergy, Humanitas University and Research (Milano, Italy) and Professor Cristoforo Incorvaia, Cardiac/Pulmonary Rehabilitation, ASST Pini/CTO, (Milano, Italy), with an unrestricted grant from Stallergenes Greer.

The article demonstrates that there is very strong evidence to show that AIT achieves its primary therapeutic goals in patients with respiratory allergies1,2 by reducing the frequency and intensity of symptoms, the use of rescue medications, and improving quality of life for people with allergies.

Personalised medicine is improving the effectiveness and precision of allergy diagnosis and consequently increasing the performance and treatment outcome of AIT.

This landmark publication, which is fully aligned with Stallergenes Greer’s commitment, highlights the unique role of AIT in allergy treatment encompassing the prediction of a successful treatment, the potential prevention or progression of an allergic disease, and the possibility of providing such advances at affordable costs,” states Amer Jaber, EVP Operations Europe and President of Stallergenes SAS, who heads Stallergenes Greer's R&D.

AIT: a medical model of personalised healthcare

The article outlines that personalised allergy care is valuable and may also be preventive by focusing on quality of life, predictive by allowing treatment to be adjusted to the individual’s response and participative by empowering the patient.

AIT is consistent with the three major needs to be met in personalised medicine:
- the identification of the molecular mechanism of the disease,
- the availability of diagnostic tools to recognise this mechanism, and
- the availability of a treatment capable of blocking the mechanism3,4.

AIT delivers customised healthcare, with medical decisions, practices, and/or products tailored to the individual patient5.

Leveraging precision medicine for personalised allergy care

This tailor-made approach to diagnosis, decision-making, product choice and treatment schedules may enhance effectiveness, minimise adverse events, improve quality of life and reduce the socio-economic impact of allergies 6,7,8,9.

Stallergenes Greer’s purpose “Enabling precision medicine to improve life for people with allergies” is in line with the statements set out in the article. Stallergenes Greer is committed to furthering precision medicine and personalised AIT treatments to maximise treatment outcomes for patients with allergies.

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. Key findings from POD1UM-202: N=94 ORR* (95% CI) 13.8% (7.6-22.5) Best OR*, n 1 CR 12 PR 33 SD DCR 48.9% DOR, median (95% CI), months 9.5 (5.6-NE) PFS, median (95% CI), months 2.3 (1.9-3.6) OS, median (95
