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.
