ZYNLONTA®: Focus on time between treatments

ZYNLONTA® treatment icon

ZYNLONTA® (loncastuximab tesirine-lpyl) is given through a needle placed in the vein (intravenous, or IV, infusion) at a clinic or infusion center.

ZYNLONTA® was specifically studied in adult patients who needed their next diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) therapy, after trying 2 or more past therapies.

Diffuse Large B-Cell Lymphoma (DLBCL) — A type of B-cell non-Hodgkin lymphoma (cancer of the immune system) that is usually aggressive (fast-growing). It is the most common type of non-Hodgkin lymphoma, and is marked by rapidly growing tumors in the lymph nodes, spleen, liver, bone marrow, or other organs.

 

ZYNLONTA® worked in 48% of people in the trial. And for some it worked in about 1 month*

*In a clinical trial, 145 patients with DLBCL that has come back (relapsed) or did not respond to previous therapy (refractory) were treated with ZYNLONTA® to see how well it worked. Out of 145 people, 70 saw anti-cancer results. The median time that it took for half of people to respond was 1.3 months. It took the other half longer to respond, up to 8.1 months.
