07:33 EDTCELGCelgene announces publication of REVLIMID combination results
Celgene announced that results of a study evaluating the combination of REVLIMID with rituximab, cyclophosphamide, doxorubicin hydrochloride, vincristine sulfate and prednisone in untreated diffuse large b-cell lymphoma were published online ahead of print in the Journal of Clinical Oncology. In a phase II, open label, single arm study, 64 patients with newly diagnosed, untreated, stage II-IV CD20 positive DLBCL received 25 mg of lenalidomide on days 1-10 with standard dose R-CHOP every 21 days for six cycles. All patients received pegfilgrastim on day two of each cycle and aspirin prophylaxis throughout. The primary endpoint was event-free survival with secondary endpoints of progression free survival and overall survival. A one-stage binomial design was used to assess the efficacy and tolerability of REVLIMID with R-CHOP. Of the 64 patients enrolled, 60 were eligible for response evaluation. In these patients, the overall response rate was 98% with 80% achieving a complete response. The 24-month EFS, which was identical to PFS, and OS rates were 59% and 78%, respectively. The company said, "This study demonstrated that the addition of lenalidomide to conventional R-CHOP resulted in similar PFS rates and OS rates between sub-types. This is intriguing as patients with the non-GCB phenotype have traditionally experienced poorer outcomes. The results of this study support further evaluation of this regimen in this sub-type of DLBCL.

05:18 EDTNVSNovartis reports LCZ696 significantly reduced cardiovascular deaths
New data revealing the reduction in cardiovascular, or CV, deaths with Novartis' LCZ696 in patients with heart failure with reduced ejection fraction, or HF-REF, will be presented at the European Society of Cardiology, or ESC, Congress 2014. The 8,442 patient study, PARADIGM-HF, was specifically designed to see if LCZ696 could increase survival over and above what can be achieved with ACE-inhibitor enalapril in addition to current best treatment in HF-REF patients. In March the Data Monitoring Committee overseeing the study confirmed those given LCZ696 were significantly less likely to die from CV causes, leading to the trial being closed early. LCZ696 significantly reduced cardiovascular deaths in head to head study against enalapril, in addition to current best treatment, in patients with HF-REF. PARADIGM-HF is the largest heart failure study ever conducted and was stopped early in March due to compelling efficacy. LCZ696 was recently granted FDA Fast Track status and rolling submission expected to be complete by end of year.
