TG Therapeutics Announces Data Presentations at Upcoming Medical Meetings

May 14, 2020

NEW YORK, May 14, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- TG Therapeutics, Inc. (NASDAQ: TGTX), today announced the schedule of upcoming data presentations at the 56thAmerican Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) annual meeting, to be held virtually May 29June 1, 2020 and the 25thEuropean Hematology Association (EHA) annual congress, to be held virtually June 11 – 14, 2020. Details of the data presentations are included below.

Michael S. Weiss, the Company’s Executive Chairman and Chief Executive Officer stated, “We are extremely pleased to present data from three combination trials at the upcoming June conferences, which we believe underscores the progress we have made in our combinatorial approach, as well as the potential utility of our lead drug candidates in oncology. We are particularly excited to share the final results from the GENUINE Phase 3 trial, evaluating ublituximab in high-risk CLL patients, which is the first randomized trial to demonstrate a PFS benefit with the addition of an anti-CD20 antibody to ibrutinib, compared to ibrutinib monotherapy. Additionally, it is encouraging to see long-term results from the combination of umbralisib and ibrutinib continue to show the potential versatility of umbralisib in combination regimens.“ Mr. Weiss continued, “Lastly, we look forward to presenting updated results from our proprietary triple combination of ublituximab, umbralisib, and our highly selective, BTK inhibitor, TG-1701, which to date has shown encouraging clinical activity at all dose levels evaluated.”

TG Therapeutics is a biopharmaceutical company focused on the acquisition, development and commercialization of novel treatments for B-cell malignancies and autoimmune diseases. Currently, the company is developing multiple therapies targeting hematological malignancies and autoimmune diseases. Ublituximab (TG-1101) is a novel, glycoengineered monoclonal antibody that targets a specific and unique epitope on the CD20 antigen found on mature B-lymphocytes. TG Therapeutics is also developing umbralisib (TGR-1202), an oral, once-daily dual inhibitor of PI3K-delta and CK1-epsilon, which may lead to a differentiated safety profile. Both ublituximab and umbralisib, or the combination of which is referred to as "U2", are in Phase 3 clinical development for patients with hematologic malignancies, with ublituximab also in Phase 3 clinical development for Multiple Sclerosis. Additionally, the Company has recently brought into Phase 1 clinical development its anti-PD-L1 monoclonal antibody, cosibelimab (TG-1501), its covalently-bound Bruton’s Tyrosine Kinase (BTK) inhibitor, TG-1701, as well as its anti-CD47/CD19 bispecific antibody, TG-1801. TG Therapeutics is headquartered in New York City.
