Janssen Headlines American Society of Hematology Annual Meeting With More Than 35 Presentations Highlighting Deep, Diverse Oncology Pipeline and Portfolio

RARITAN, N.J., November 5, 2020 – The Janssen Pharmaceutical Companies of Johnson &Johnson announced today more than 35 company-sponsored studies, including 10 oral presentations, will be featured at the 62nd American Society of Hematology (ASH) Annual Meeting and Exposition taking place virtually December 5-8, 2020.In multiple myeloma, highlights include Phase 1b/2 results for the B-cell maturation antigen (BCMA)-targeted chimeric antigen receptor T-cell (CAR-T) therapy ciltacabtagene autoleucel (cilta-cel); new and updated data for the anti-CD38 monoclonal antibody DARZALEX® (daratumumab) and the subcutaneous formulation DARZALEX FASPRO™ (daratumumab and hyaluronidase-fihj); and new and updated data for bispecific antibodies talquetamab (GPRC5DxCD3) and teclistamab (BCMAxCD3), respectively.In B-cell malignancies, Janssen will present new data for the Bruton's tyrosine kinase (BTK) inhibitor IMBRUVICA® (ibrutinib) as time-limited therapy in previously untreated CLL, including in combination with venetoclax.Presentations in other blood disorders will include DARZALEX FASPRO™ data in the rare disease, amyloid light chain (AL) amyloidosis, and reversal agent data for JNJ-3093, an investigational Factor XIa inhibitor in thrombosis. Techniques for using predictive modeling to identify the U.S. patient population with warm autoimmune hemolytic anemia (wAIHA) will also be presented. Nipocalimab, a high affinity, fully human, aglycosylated, effectorless...

Authors: Rombauts A, Abelenda-Alonso G, Cuervo G, Gudiol C, Carratalà J Abstract INTRODUCTION: Despite adequate antibiotic coverage, community-acquired pneumonia (CAP) remains a leading cause of hospitalization and mortality worldwide. It induces both a local pulmonary and a systemic inflammatory response, particularly significant in severe cases. The intensity of the dysregulated host response varies from patient to patient and has a negative impact on survival and other outcomes. AREAS COVERED: This comprehensive review summarizes the pathophysiological aspects of the inflammatory response in CAP, brie...

We describe the most highly recommended generic and disease-specific PRO tools in SCD and discuss the challenges of incorporating them in clinical practice. EXPERT OPINION: PRO measures are essential to incorporate into SCD clinical trials either as primary or secondary outcomes. The use of PRO measures in SCD facilitates a patient-centered approach, which is likely to lead to improved outcomes. Significant challenges remain in adapting PRO tools to routine clinical use and in developing countries. PMID: 33034214 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Authors: Musio F Abstract INTRODUCTION: Anemia has and will continue to be a central theme in medicine particularly as clinicians are treating a burgeoning population of complex multi-organ system processes. As a result of multiple randomized controlled trials (RCTs), meta-analyses, and societal recommendations overly restrictive paradigms and under-administration of erythropoiesis stimulating agents (ESAs) have likely been followed by clinicians among all specialties. AREAS COVERED: A review of anemia in the context of chronic kidney disease, hematologic malignancies and cancer is presented with focus on the e...

Authors: Bergland OU, Søraas CL, Larstorp ACK, Halvorsen LV, Hjørnholm U, Hoffman P, Høieggen A, Fadl Elmula FEM Abstract PURPOSE: The blood pressure (BP) lowering effect of renal sympathetic denervation (RDN) in treatment-resistant hypertension shows variation amongst the existing randomised studies. The long-term efficacy and safety of RDN require further investigation. For the first time, we report BP changes and safety up to 7 years after RDN, compared to drug adjustment in the randomised Oslo RDN study. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Patients with treatment-resistant hypertension, defined...

Authors: Zhang W, Xu JZ, Lu XH, Li H, Wang D, Wang JG Abstract PURPOSE: We hypothesise that dietary sodium intake interacts with serum uric acid to influence blood pressure (BP) in children and adolescents. In the present study, we investigated ambulatory BP in relation to hyperuricaemia, dietary sodium intake and their interaction in children and adolescents with hypertension. MATERIALS AND METHODS:  A total of 616 study participants were 10-24 years old and had primary hypertension diagnosed after admission in a specialised inpatient ward. Ambulatory BP monitoring was performed during hospitalisat...
