Celltrion, Inc. (KRX:068270) is set to launch global Phase 3 clinical trial for its bevacizumab biosimilar ‘CT-P16’ for the treatment of cancer.

Celltrion successfully completed Phase 1 clinical study on the safety and pharmacokinetic assessment of CT-P16 in June 2018. Further, it recently submitted its Clinical Trial Application for Phase 3 clinical study to the National Authority of Medicines and Health Products, I.P. (Infarmed) of Portugal.

Beginning with Portugal, Celltrion is set to conduct Phase 3 clinical trial for CT-P16 in about 150 sites in some 20 nations across Europe, Asia and South America.

Meanwhile, Roche’s Avastin®, the originator of CT-P16, is a therapeutic anti-cancer drug for the treatment of metastatic colorectal cancer, metastatic breast cancer, non-small cell lung cancer, and glioblastoma. It last year recorded global sales of about USD 6.7 billion1, making it blockbuster medicine.

“We are successfully conducting the clinical trial for the bevacizumab biosimilar ‘CT-P16’ as planned. We will secure the competitiveness for CT-P16 compared with its competitive biosimilars.” says an official of Celltrion.
