05:37 EDTINCYIncyte announces Phase III study of ruxolitinib meets primary endpoint
Incyte announced that a pivotal Phase III trial of ruxolitinib compared to best available therapy in patients with polycythemia vera who are resistant to or intolerant of hydroxyurea has met its primary endpoint of achieving phlebotomy independence and reducing spleen size by 35% or more. The safety profile of ruxolitinib was generally consistent with previous studies based on initial review of the data. Ruxolitinib, marketed as Jakafi in the United States, is approved to treat people with intermediate or high-risk myelofibrosis, or MF, including primary MF, post–polycythemia vera MF and post–essential thrombocythemia MF. The global, randomized, open-label Phase III trial, called RESPONSE, was conducted at 109 sites. The trial included 222 patients with polycythemia vera resistant to or intolerant of hydroxyurea. Patients were randomized 1:1 to receive either ruxolitinib or best available therapy. The dose was adjusted as needed throughout the trial. The primary endpoint of the trial is the proportion of patients whose hematocrit level is controlled in absence of phlebotomy and whose spleen volume is reduced by 35 percent or more from baseline as assessed by imaging at 32 weeks. In addition to safety, key secondary endpoints include durable response and complete hematological remission. Data from RESPONSE are expected to be presented at an upcoming scientific meeting and submitted to the FDA this year.

13:07 EDTINCYNovartis announces data from Jakavi trial
Novartis (NVS) announced data from the largest clinical trial of myelofibrosis patients treated with Jakavi, supporting the safety profile and efficacy benefit as measured in primary and secondary endpoints respectively. In an analysis of 1,144 patients treated with Jakavi to date in this ongoing expanded access study, 69% of patients achieved >50% reduction in spleen size from baseline and patients also experienced a clinically meaningful improvement in myelofibrosis symptom score, important treatment goals for patients with myelofibrosis. Findings from the study were presented at the 56th Annual Meeting of the American Society of Hematology in San Francisco, California. Novartis research and development efforts, in collaboration with Incyte Corporation (INCY), include early-phase and post-marketing studies in myelofibrosis and other myeloproliferative neoplasms. More than 50 abstracts on ruxolitinib are being presented at ASH, including three oral presentations exploring combinations of ruxolitinib with various investigational compounds, evaluating the possibility of simultaneously targeting multiple cancer pathways that may be involved in the pathogenesis of myelofibrosis. The JUMP study is a Phase IIIb, expanded-access trial for countries with no access to Jakavi outside of a clinical trial. The open-label, multicenter study analyzed 1,144 enrolled myelofibrosis patients who received daily starting doses of either 5 mg, 15 mg or 20 mg of Jakavi twice daily based on platelet counts at baseline. The primary endpoint is assessment of safety and tolerability of Jakavi. Overall, the safety and efficacy profile of Jakavi was consistent with previous studies.
