The webinar, which debuted worldwide to over 1,200 attendees, is just the latest event from the Academy whose mission is to provide leading education on the topic of aging science.

The webinar, moderated by IMCAS Academy Executive Editor, Dr. Dominique Du Crest, featured a renowned and diverse lineup of speakers from around the world. Mary Kay’s Dr. Michelle Hines, Director of Global Cosmetic Research & Innovation, kicked off the webinar with an overview of chemical peels and then joined experts to discuss various subjects surrounding a number of topics on the agenda. The topics covered the existential question of whether ‘to peel or not to peel’, different types of peels, peeling for darker skin types, the use of new and innovative ingredients, the dangers of peeling for patients with various skin diseases, with speakers also sharing tips on how to prolong the benefits of peeling post-procedure. The session concluded with a robust Q&A panel chaired by Dr. Uliana Gout, M.D. Alongside Dr. Hines, the featured speakers included Dr. Foteini Bageorgou, Dermatologist; Dr. Marina Landau, Dermatologist; and Dr. Mukta Sachdev, Dermatologist.

“Women of any age, anywhere in the world, want flawless skin,” said Dr. Hines. “Currently, chemical peels are a popular skin rejuvenation and skin resurfacing procedure. Professional and at-home peels offer different experiences and benefits. As there are many options available, education and awareness are important to make the best choice. Mary Kay was thrilled to provide a grant to further education and research on the topic.”

“I would like to underscore the dynamic and growing nature of our diverse community,” said Dr. Du Crest. “We have over 28,000 physician members, and with the outbreak of COVID-19, our community has expanded tremendously. Outside of our Congress, we offer webinars, sometimes twice a week, through which we create opportunities for doctors, physicians, dermatologists, and aestheticians all over the world to come together and share knowledge, expertise, and answer industry-related questions from their peers without having to travel or leave their home or office. Our e-Learning platform houses hundreds of clinical cases, numerous blog posts, over 40 webinars annually, and thousands of videos for industry professionals to be able to watch and enrich themselves on demand.”

The webinar was recorded and is available for viewing on the IMCAS Academy Library portal.

Updated Results from the Phase 1 Study of the BCMAxCD3 Bispecific Teclistamab Show Preliminary Efficacy in Patients with Heavily Pretreated Relapsed or Refractory Multiple Myeloma5.12.2020 22:26:00 CETPress release

The Janssen Pharmaceutical Companies of Johnson & Johnson announced today updated results from an ongoing Phase 1 first-in-human dose escalation study (NCT03145181) of teclistamab (JNJ-64007957) for the treatment of relapsed or refractory multiple myeloma (MM). In heavily pretreated patients, the overall response rate (ORR) with teclistamab was 73 percent (16/22) at the recommended SC Phase 2 dose (RP2D).1 These results for the SC formulation support the recommended dose for the pivotal Phase 2 registration trial, which has started. In addition, updated results for the intravenous (IV) formulation demonstrate the durability of responses.1 “The data presented today for the subcutaneous formulation build on promising results presented earlier this year for the intravenous regimen,” said Alfred Garfall, M.D.,* Assistant Professor of Medicine, Perelman School of Medicine, University of Pennsylvania, and presenting author. “The preliminary efficacy, including durability of responses, combin

Early, Deep, Durable Responses of Ciltacabtagene Autoleucel (cilta-cel) Observed in Phase 1b/2 CARTITUDE-1 Study Show Potential of BCMA CAR-T in Treatment of Heavily Pretreated Patients with Multiple Myeloma5.12.2020 21:12:00 CETPress release

The Janssen Pharmaceutical Companies of Johnson & Johnson announced today longer-term results from the combined Phase 1b/2 CARTITUDE-1 study (NCT03548207) evaluating the efficacy and safety of ciltacabtagene autoleucel (cilta-cel), an investigational B cell maturation antigen (BCMA)-directed chimeric antigen receptor T cell (CAR-T) therapy, for the treatment of patients with relapsed and/or refractory multiple myeloma. These data, presented as an oral presentation at the American Society of Hematology (ASH) 2020 Annual Meeting (Abstract #177), continued to demonstrate a very high overall response rate of 97 percent, which deepened over time with 67 percent of patients achieving a stringent complete response.1 With a median follow-up of 12.4 months, median duration of response and progression-free survival (PFS) were not reached.1 “Unfortunately, for patients with multiple myeloma for whom at least three established treatment regimens have stopped working, the prognosis is often not goo

Disease-Free Survival Data from CAPTIVATE Study Demonstrate Benefit of IMBRUVICA ® (ibrutinib)-Based Regimen as Fixed Duration, First-Line Treatment for Patients with Chronic Lymphocytic Leukaemia5.12.2020 19:19:00 CETPress release

New data from the Phase 2 CAPTIVATE study (PCYC-1142) were presented today during an oral session at the 2020 American Society of Hematology (ASH) Annual Meeting (Abstract #123).1 The study evaluated the efficacy and safety of IMBRUVICA® (ibrutinib) plus venetoclax in the treatment of adult patients with chronic lymphocytic leukaemia (CLL) and showed that, after achieving undetectable minimal residual disease (uMRD) in both the blood and bone marrow with the ibrutinib combination regimen, the one-year disease-free survival (DFS) of patients randomised to discontinue active treatment was comparable to that of patients randomised to continue ibrutinib monotherapy (95.3 percent vs. 100 percent, respectively [p=0.1475]).1 “These data demonstrate the potential of this oral, once-daily, chemotherapy-free combination regimen in first-line treatment of CLL,” said William Wierda,* M.D., Professor, Department of Leukemia, The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center and principal study inve

Rhizen Pharmaceuticals SA Announces Presentation of the Interim Results of the Phase I/II study of Tenalisib (RP6530) in Combination with Romidepsin in Relapsed/Refractory T-cell Lymphoma at American Society of Hematology (ASH) annual meeting, 20205.12.2020 16:00:00 CETPress release

Rhizen Pharmaceuticals, a clinical-stage oncology-focussed biopharmaceutical company, today announced presentation of the interim results of a Phase I/II combination study of Tenalisib with Romidepsin for relapsed/refractory T-Cell Lymphoma patients at the upcoming 62nd American Society of Hematology (ASH) annual meeting and exposition, to be held virtually from December 5 – 8, 2020. The poster presentation at ASH, 2020 includes interim data from a multi-center, open label, Phase I/II study in patients with T cell lymphoma (NCT03770000) with the objective of determining the MTD/optimal dose of Tenalisib given in combination with Romidepsin and assessing the preliminary efficacy of the combination. No dose limiting toxicities were reported and Tenalisib 800 mg BID plus Romidepsin 14 mg/m2 was determined to be the maximum tolerated dose for the expansion cohorts. Overall, the Tenalisib and Romidepsin combination was well tolerated across all patients (N=33) with no unexpected adverse eve

Data from the APOLLO Study Show Clinically Meaningful Response with DARZALEX ® ▼ (daratumumab) Subcutaneous Formulation Regimen After First or Subsequent Relapse in Multiple Myeloma4.12.2020 20:52:00 CETPress release

The Janssen Pharmaceutical Companies of Johnson & Johnson announced results of the Phase 3 APOLLO study showing that the addition of DARZALEX®▼ (daratumumab) subcutaneous (SC) formulation to pomalidomide and dexamethasone (D-Pd) significantly reduced the risk of progression or death by 37 percent, compared to Pd alone in patients with multiple myeloma (MM) after the first or subsequent relapse of disease.1 The APOLLO results, which will be presented on Sunday, December 6 at 9:00 p.m. CET during the American Society of Hematology (ASH) 2020 Annual Meeting and featured in the ASH press briefing (Abstract #112), add to the body of evidence supporting treatment with daratumumab SC-based regimens for patients with relapsed MM. These data were the basis for recent regulatory submissions in Europe and the United States (U.S.) seeking approval for daratumumab SC in combination with Pd for the treatment of patients with relapsed or refractory MM, with two or more prior lines of therapy, includi

Citi Private Bank has released its Outlook 2021: The New Economic Cycle: Investing for a Post-COVID World.
