Gilead Sciences: European Commission Grants Marketing Authorization For Trodelvy

Gilead Sciences, Inc. (GILD) said the European Commission has granted marketing authorization for Trodelvy, a first-in-class Trop-2-directed antibody-drug conjugate, as a monotherapy indicated for the treatment of adult patients with unresectable or metastatic triple-negative breast cancer.

The company noted that the decision is supported by results from the phase 3 ASCENT study, where Trodelvy reduced the risk of death by 49% and improved median overall
survival to 11.8 months versus 6.9 months with chemotherapy. The ASCENT study is a global, open-label, randomized phase 3 study that enrolled more than 500 patients across 230 study locations.
