BeiGene is focused on creating impactful medicines intended to be accessible to far more patients here in Canada and around the world. We are advancing an innovative, high-value product portfolio primarily targeting blood cancers and solid tumors with the aim of discovering additional first-in-class or best-in-class innovative medicines.
Our Medicines in Canada
BRUKINSA® is a small molecule inhibitor of Bruton’s tyrosine kinase (BTK) discovered by BeiGene scientists that is currently being evaluated globally in a broad clinical program as both monotherapy and in combination with other therapies to treat various B-cell malignancies.
BRUKINSA® was first authorized for use in Canada in March 2021 for the treatment of adult patients with Waldenström’s Macroglobulinemia (WM). Since then, it has received approval from Health Canada for the treatment of patients with Mantle Cell Lymphoma (MCL) in July 2021, relapsed or refractory Marginal Zone Lymphoma (MZL) in March 2022. 2, and Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia or Small Lymphocytic Lymphoma (CLL/SLL) in May 2023.
BRUKINSA® has also been filed in Canada for approval for the treatment of Follicular Lymphoma (FL). This indication has not been approved in Canada at this time.
Our Clinical Trials
We are committed to bringing better treatment options to Canadian patients and are recruiting for clinical trials across a wide range of therapeutic indications, including lymphoma, liver cancers, lung cancers, gastric cancers, breast cancers, and more.
We are seeking talented investigators to conduct our clinical trials in Canada. Our aim is to be your sponsor of choice. With your help, we can identify ways to achieve our ultimate vision: to help transform the biotechnology industry, creating impactful medicines that will be accessible and affordable to cancer patients.
