Elevar Therapeutics announces ANGEL Trial Podium Presentation at ESMO

Elevar Therapeutics announced that data from the ANGEL trial has been accepted for a podium presentation by the European Society for Professional Oncology at the annual meeting in Barcelona, Spain. The ANGEL trial is a randomized phase 3 study of Rivoceranib (commonly known as Apatinib) plus best supportive care in gastric cancer patients who had failed at least 2 prior lines of therapy. This presentation will be the first public disclosure of ANGEL study data since the announcement of the topline results in June.

“The ANGEL study represents the first large study of Rivoceranib in a global patient population,” said Steven Norton PhD, MBA, Vice President Clinical Development at Elevar Therapeutics. “We appreciate the opportunity for Rivoceranib data to be presented at ESMO 2019 and to be able to gather insights from leading oncologists globally during the conference.”
