MYL-1402O (MYL) is a proposed biosimilar to bevacizumab reference product. A multicenter, double blind randomized, phase 3 study compared the efficacy, safety, PK, and immunogenicity of MYL and Avastin in patients with Stage IV metastatic nsNSCLC. Patients received either MYL or reference product, in combination with carboplatin-paclitaxel up to 18 weeks (6 cycles) followed by monotherapy for up to an additional 24 weeks (8 cycles). The objective was to develop a Pop PK model based on data from a phase 3 study pooled with a single dose healthy volunteer phase 1 study data; to assess PK linearity across the dose levels of 1 mg/kg to 15 mg/kg in 2 clinical studies; to assess the PK similarity of MYL and reference product in patients with nsNSCLC; and to explore potential covariates to account for variability in Pop PK model parameters.
