The session was chaired by Professor Inhye Park of the Department of Oncology, Korea University Guro Hospital.
Professor Moon said, “Consistent validity was confirmed in all subgroups, including Koreans and Asians, for various evaluation indicators, such as the duration of severe neutropenia (DSN) and the recovery time of neutrophil counts that may occur after chemotherapy. , The overall safety profile was also similar in all subgroups,” he said. “Especially, the LAPSCOVERY™ platform, Hanmi’s proprietary technology, is applied to facilitate distribution to the bone marrow, where neutrophil differentiation is promoted, so the increase in neutrophil count compared to the reference drug It could be even higher,” he said.
