16:09 EDTCELGCelgene presents results from 1st phase III study in psoriasis ESTEEM 1
Celgene International Sŕrl, a subsidiary of Celgene presented the results from ESTEEM 1, the Company’s first phase III study in psoriasis, at the American Academy of Dermatology annual meeting in Miami, Florida. The company previously announced statistical significance for the primary and major secondary endpoint of PASI-75 at Week 16 and the Static Physician Global Assessment for patients receiving apremilast in the ESTEEM 1&2 phase III studies. ESTEEM 1&2 are the phase III registrational randomized, placebo-controlled studies evaluating the company’s oral small-molecule inhibitor of phosphodiesterase-4 in patients with moderate-to-severe chronic plaque psoriasis. Statistical significance at week 16 was also demonstrated in the major secondary endpoint, Static Physician Global Assessment (sPGA) of clear or almost clear (P<0.0001), and other key secondary endpoints (change in BSA, Pruritus VAS, DLQI), as well as in assessments of difficult to treat areas (nail and scalp psoriasis). An NDA submission to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, based on the combined ESTEEM 1&2 studies for psoriasis, is expected in the second half of 2013. The Company previously announced it expects to file a separate NDA for psoriatic arthritis in the first quarter of 2013. A combined PsA/psoriasis MAA submission in Europe is also planned for the second half of 2013.

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.”
