05:50 EDTJNJPharmacyclics data demonstrates safety, durability response
New, 27-month IMBRUVICA median follow-up data announced by Pharmacyclics (PCYC) support the use of IMBRUVICA over longer periods of time in patients with relapsed/refractory mantle cell lymphoma, or MCL, an aggressive type of lymphoma. More than 30% of IMBRUVICA patients remained progression-free after two years with no new or unexpected adverse events occurring during that time. Nearly half of the 111 patients treated were still living at the time of the data analysis. A second Phase II trial looked at IMBRUVICA's efficacy and safety as a single-agent treatment for MCL patients who previously had received rituximab combination therapy and at least two cycles of bortezomib. IMBRUVICA combination therapy resulted in an 88% overall response rate in MCL patients with a complete response rate of 40%. IMBRUVICA is jointly developed and commercialized by Pharmacyclics and Janssen Biotech, a unit of Johnson and Johnson (JNJ).
05:43 EDTJNJPharmacyclics reports IMBRUVICA data shows 84% PFS rate at one year
Pharmacyclics (PCYC) announced new, longer term data in IMBRUVICA patients with relapsed/refractory chronic lymphocytic leukemia, or CLL, including high-risk CLL patients with deletion 17p. Results from the Phase III RESONATE trial demonstrated an 84% progression-free survival, or PFS, rate in all patients with previously treated CLL or small lymphocytic lymphoma, or SLL, who received IMBRUVICA and a 94% PFS rate in patients who received only one prior therapy at 12 months. Separately, follow-up data was reported from Phase II RESONATE-17, or PCYC-1117, the largest prospective trial dedicated to studying CLL or SLL patients with del 17p. The data showed that IMBRUVICA was associated with an 83% overall response rate, or ORR, at a median follow up of 11.5 months. At 12 months, the estimated PFS was 79%. These results and additional data were presented here at the 56th American Society of Hematology, or ASH, Annual Meeting, highlighting IMBRUVICA's sustained efficacy in relapsed/refractory patients who have received at least one prior therapy. IMBRUVICA combination therapy resulted in an 88% overall response rate in MCL patients with a complete response rate of 40%. IMBRUVICA is jointly developed and commercialized by Pharmacyclics and Janssen Biotech, a unit of Johnson and Johnson (JNJ).

16:49 EDTACTAdvisory Committee recommends approval Of Actavis' ceftazidime-avibactam
Actavis announced that the Anti-Infective Drugs Advisory Committee convened by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has voted to recommend approval of Actavis' New Drug Application for ceftazidime-avibactam, an investigational antibiotic being developed to treat hospitalized patients when limited or no treatment options are available for complicated intra-abdominal infections and complicated urinary tract infections caused by Gram-negative pathogens. The committee found the scientific and clinical evidence submitted by Cerexa, a wholly owned subsidiary of Actavis, adequately demonstrated the safety and efficacy of ceftazidime-avibactam in the treatment of the proposed cIAI and cUTI indications. The committee voted not to recommend approval of the combination for hospital-acquired bacterial pneumonia /ventilator-associated bacterial pneumonia and bacteremia.The Advisory Committee recommendation is not binding on the FDA, which makes the final decision regarding approval. Actavis expects FDA action on its NDA for ceftazidime-avibactam during the first quarter of 2015.
