Announcement of Positive Results from Phase III Study IMscin001 Evaluating Subcutaneous Formulation of Tecentriq® with ENHANZE® in Advanced Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer


Subcutaneous formulation with ENHANZE® treatment time reduced to 3-8 minutes compared to 30-60 minutes for standard intravenous infusion

SAN DIEGO, August 2, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Halozyme Therapeutics, Inc. (NASDAQ: HALO) (“Halozyme”) today announced that Roche’s IMscin001 Phase III study evaluating a subcutaneous (SC) formulation of Tecentriq® (atezolizumab) with Halozyme’s ENHANZE® technology met its co-primary endpoints.

The study showed non-inferior blood levels of Tecentriq® (pharmacokinetics), when injected subcutaneously, compared to intravenous (IV) infusion in cancer immunotherapy naïve patients with locally advanced or metastatic non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) for whom previous platinum-based therapy has failed. The safety profile of the SC formulation was consistent with IV Tecentriq®.

“These positive results further demonstrate the potential for a co-formulation of ENHANZE to potentially benefit patients by reducing the treatment time of Tecentriq to 3-8 minutes for SC administration from 30-60 minutes for IV treatment,” commented the dr. Helen Torley, President and CEO of Halozyme. “We are delighted to report these positive results, which represent our second positive Phase III trial announcement this year for our Wave Three products.”

Roche will share the detailed results of the IMscin001 study at an upcoming medical meeting and will submit the data for regulatory approval to health authorities around the world, including the US Food and Drug Administration and the European Medicines Agency.

About ENHANZE® Technology

Halozyme’s proprietary ENHANZE® drug delivery technology is based on its patented recombinant human hyaluronidase enzyme (rHuPH20). rHuPH20 has been shown to remove traditional limitations on the volume of biologics that can be administered subcutaneously (just under the skin). Using rHuPH20, certain intravenously administered biologics and compounds can instead be administered subcutaneously. ENHANZE® may also benefit subcutaneous biologics by reducing the need for multiple injections.
