Global Oncology Innovator BeiGene Highlights New Data across Hematology and Solid Tumor Portfolio at 2024 ASCO Annual Meeting


BeiGene, Ltd. (NASDAQ: BGNE; HKEX: 06160; SSE: 688235), a global oncology company, today announced it will share research outcomes from its broad hematology and solid tumor portfolio at the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) Annual Meeting in Chicago, May 31 - June 4, 2024.

“Our presentations at this year’s ASCO highlight the strength of our growing oncology portfolio and our commitment to developing treatments that address the unmet needs of patients with B-cell malignancies and solid tumors,” Mehrdad Mobasher, M.D., M.P.H., Chief Medical Officer, Hematology at BeiGene. “The exciting data we will share during ASCO showcase BRUKINSA’s uniquely differentiated clinical profile and add to the growing body of evidence supporting its role across the blood cancer treatment paradigm.”

BeiGene will share new data for BRUKINSA (zanubrutinib), which add to the robust efficacy and safety evidence differentiating it within the BTK class. Key highlights include:

  • A network meta-analysis comparing the efficacy of BRUKINSA vs acalabrutinib in patients with relapsed/refractory chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL); and
  • A post-hoc analysis from the Phase 3 ALPINE study of BRUKINSA vs ibrutinib evaluating the risk of developing hypertension based on the initiation and adjustment of antihypertensive medications.

Reflecting BeiGene’s growing solid tumor development program, TEVIMBRA (tislelizumab-jsgr) will be the subject of multiple presentations – as a monotherapy, in combination with chemotherapy agents, and as part of immunotherapy regimens across a range of tumor types. Key highlights include:

  • New data from the Phase 3 RATIONALE-306 study evaluating TEVIMBRA plus chemotherapy in patients with advanced or metastatic esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC); and
  • Initial data from a first-in-human study evaluating HPK1 inhibitor BGB-15025 alone and in combination with TEVIMBRA.

“Our data at ASCO are a testament to the potential versatility of TEVIMBRA across a range of tumor types, and we are excited by the momentum of this critical pillar of our solid tumor development program,” said Mark Lanasa, M.D., Ph.D., Chief Medical Officer, Solid Tumors at BeiGene. “During the meeting, we look forward to sharing a new analysis from our RATIONALE-306 study, which will provide insights into the three-year efficacy and safety of TEVIMBRA as a first-line treatment for ESCC.”

About BRUKINSA® (zanubrutinib)
BRUKINSA is a small molecule inhibitor of Bruton’s tyrosine kinase (BTK) designed to deliver complete and sustained inhibition of the BTK protein by optimizing bioavailability, half-life, and selectivity. With differentiated pharmacokinetics compared with other approved BTK inhibitors, BRUKINSA has been demonstrated to inhibit the proliferation of malignant B cells within a number of disease-relevant tissues.

Please see full U.S. Prescribing Information for BRUKINSA® (zanubrutinib), including U.S. Patient Information or visit

About TEVIMBRA® (tislelizumab-jsgr)
Tislelizumab is a uniquely designed humanized immunoglobulin G4 (IgG4) anti-programmed cell death protein 1 (PD-1) monoclonal antibody with high affinity and binding specificity against PD-1. It is designed to minimize binding to Fc-gamma (Fcγ) receptors on macrophages, helping to aid the body’s immune cells to detect and fight tumors.

Please see full U.S. Prescribing Information for TEVIMBRA® (tislelizumab-jsgr), including Medication Guide.

About Sonrotoclax (BGB11417)
Sonrotoclax is an investigational small molecule B-cell lymphoma 2 (BCL2) inhibitor. It belongs to a class of BCL2 homology 3 (BH3) mimetics, and preclinical and IND-enabling studies have demonstrated potent activity and high selectivity of sonrotoclax against the antiapoptotic protein BCL2. Sonrotoclax is more potent and selective for BCL2 relative to BCLxL than venetoclax and shows the potential to overcome common BCL2 resistance mutations.
