13:07 EDTNVSNovartis 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.

05:42 EDTNVSSandoz Phase III data shows filgrastim has similar safety, efficacy as NEUPOGEN
Sandoz, a Novartis (NVS) company, announced Phase III data that demonstrated similarity of its investigational biosimilar filgrastim compared to the US-licensed reference product, Amgen's (AMGN) NEUPOGEN in the prevention of severe neutropenia in patients with breast cancer receiving neoadjuvant myelosuppressive chemotherapy. The study also showed that repeated switching at each cycle between the investigational biosimilar and the originator filgrastim showed no impact on efficacy, safety or immunogenicity. The PIONEER study was a Phase III study designed to compare the efficacy and safety of the investigational biosimilar and the reference product with respect to mean duration of severe neutropenia following Cycle 1 chemotherapy. PIONEER was a randomized, double-blind, four-group, multi-center non-inferiority trial conducted at 27 centers. The trial randomized 218 breast cancer patients receiving neoadjuvant myelosuppressive chemotherapy.
