07:39 EDTARIAARIAD announces longer-term follow up from Phase 1, Phase 2 Iclusig trials
ARIAD Pharmaceuticals announced longer-term follow up from its Phase 1 and pivotal Phase 2 trials of Iclusig, its approved BCR-ABL inhibitor, in heavily pretreated patients with resistant or intolerant chronic myeloid leukemia or Philadelphia chromosome-positive acute lymphoblastic leukemia. The studies now show that with a median follow-up of 42.5 months for chronic-phase CML patients in the Phase 1 trial, Iclusig continues to demonstrate anti-leukemic activity in those who had limited treatment options, and that deep and durable responses have been maintained in CP-CML patients in the PACE trial with 87 percent estimated to remain in major cytogenetic response at two years. Longer-term safety data show that careful benefit/risk evaluation should guide the decision to use ponatinib therapy, particularly in patients who may be at increased risk for vascular occlusive events.

07:37 EDTARIAARIAD announces continuation of Iclusig review under Article 20 procedure
ARIAD Pharmaceuticals announced that the Pharmacovigilance Risk Assessment Committee of the European Medicines Agency has provided the company with a request for limited additional information regarding Iclusig as part of its ongoing review under the Article 20 referral procedure. The PRAC has requested further information regarding proposed dose modifications after achievement of a response and patient monitoring and details concerning a risk management plan. Following ARIAD’s response and input from the agency’s Scientific Advisory Group, the company expects that the PRAC will complete its review and make final recommendations to the Committee for Medicinal Products for Human Use at its meeting in October. As we finalize our recommendations on dose modifications of Iclusig and response monitoring of patients, we will work closely with the European regulatory agency and its expert advisors so that CML patients and their treating physicians have the best guidance available supporting the appropriate use of Iclusig,” said Timothy P. Clackson, Ph.D., president of research and development and chief scientific officer at ARIAD. In March ARIAD submitted responses to initial questions outlined by the PRAC as part of the Article 20 process, which was initiated in December of last year, and responses to a second set of questions were submitted to the PRAC in June.
