09:26 EDTINCY, NVSIncyte discloses patient treated with ruxolitinib develops PML
Incyte Corporation (INCY) disclosed in a regulatory filing that it was informed last week of a case of progressive multifocal leukoencephalopathy, or PML, in a 75 year old male patient from the United Kingdom with myelofibrosis treated with ruxolitinib. Ruxolitinib is marketed by the company as Jakafi in the United States and by Novartis (NVS) as Jakavi outside the United States, Incyte said. Incyte stated: "It has not been determined whether development of PML in this case was related to the use of ruxolitinib. An independent assessment to confirm the diagnosis and evaluate the causality assessment provided by the investigator is planned. This is the only known case of PML in the approximately 9,800 myelofibrosis patients treated with ruxolitinib worldwide in clinical trials or with commercial product...The Company has informed the U.S. Food and Drug Administration of this case and, as part of its standard procedure for sharing available information in a timely manner, is in the process of informing investigators in its clinical trials." The company added that there are reports in medical literature that "suggest that patients with myeloproliferative neoplasms, including myelofibrosis, may be at higher risk of developing PML." In pre-market trading, Incyte shares fell over 13% to $21.58.
