Daiichi Sankyo discontinues etanercept biosimilar development in Japan

July 24, 2017 1:44 PM

Daiichi Sankyo Company, Limited announced that it has decided to discontinue the development of CHS-0214 in Japan, an investigational etanercept biosimilar in rheumatoid arthritis conducted with the U.S. company, Coherus BioSciences, Inc.

The primary endpoint, evaluating the disease activity of rheumatoid arthritis after the administration of CHS-0214, met the criteria of equivalence as defined in advance in CHS-0214 and reference product groups, achieving the intended purpose.

However, due to the fact that a commercial manufacturing process to enable the feasible supply of CHS-0214 in Japan cannot be established at this time, Daiichi Sankyo has decided to discontinue the development of CHS-0214 in Japan.
