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.”

09:11 EDTCELGCelgene says oral Otezla approved by European Commission in 2 indications
Celgene International, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Celgene Corporation, announced that the European Commission has granted marketing authorisation for OTEZLA, the company’s oral selective inhibitor of phosphodiesterase 4, in two therapeutic indications: For the treatment of moderate-to-severe chronic plaque psoriasis in adult patients who failed to respond to or who have a contraindication to, or are intolerant to other systemic therapy including cyclosporine, methotrexate or psoralen and ultraviolet-A light. Alone or in combination with Disease Modifying Antirheumatic Drugs, for the treatment of active psoriatic arthritis in adult patients who have had an inadequate response or who have been intolerant to a prior DMARD therapy. The marketing authorization is based on efficacy and safety data from two Phase III programs, ESTEEM AND PALACE, which demonstrate a maintained clinical response among patients with psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis treated with OTEZLA through 52 weeks, across multiple endpoints. The EC decision follows the positive opinion issued by the Committee for Medicinal Products for Human Use in November 2014.12 OTEZLA will be launched in the European Union in the coming months in accordance with local requirements.
