07:52 EDTABBV, PCYCPharmacyclics superior safey profile improves outlook in CLL, says RBC Capital
After another patient died after using AbbVie's (ABBV) ABT-199, RBC Capital believes that widespread use of the drug is probably not as likely as some AbbVie bulls believe. The firm expects Pharmacyclics' (PCYC) stock to be strengthened by the news, as RBC thinks the superior safety profile of that company's CLL treatment enhances its position as a treatment for the disease. The firm keeps an Outperform rating on Pharmacyclics.

05:50 EDTPCYCPharmacyclics data demonstrates safety, durability response
New, 27-month IMBRUVICA median follow-up data announced by Pharmacyclics (PCYC) support the use of IMBRUVICA over longer periods of time in patients with relapsed/refractory mantle cell lymphoma, or MCL, an aggressive type of lymphoma. More than 30% of IMBRUVICA patients remained progression-free after two years with no new or unexpected adverse events occurring during that time. Nearly half of the 111 patients treated were still living at the time of the data analysis. A second Phase II trial looked at IMBRUVICA's efficacy and safety as a single-agent treatment for MCL patients who previously had received rituximab combination therapy and at least two cycles of bortezomib. IMBRUVICA combination therapy resulted in an 88% overall response rate in MCL patients with a complete response rate of 40%. IMBRUVICA is jointly developed and commercialized by Pharmacyclics and Janssen Biotech, a unit of Johnson and Johnson (JNJ).
05:43 EDTPCYCPharmacyclics reports IMBRUVICA data shows 84% PFS rate at one year
Pharmacyclics (PCYC) announced new, longer term data in IMBRUVICA patients with relapsed/refractory chronic lymphocytic leukemia, or CLL, including high-risk CLL patients with deletion 17p. Results from the Phase III RESONATE trial demonstrated an 84% progression-free survival, or PFS, rate in all patients with previously treated CLL or small lymphocytic lymphoma, or SLL, who received IMBRUVICA and a 94% PFS rate in patients who received only one prior therapy at 12 months. Separately, follow-up data was reported from Phase II RESONATE-17, or PCYC-1117, the largest prospective trial dedicated to studying CLL or SLL patients with del 17p. The data showed that IMBRUVICA was associated with an 83% overall response rate, or ORR, at a median follow up of 11.5 months. At 12 months, the estimated PFS was 79%. These results and additional data were presented here at the 56th American Society of Hematology, or ASH, Annual Meeting, highlighting IMBRUVICA's sustained efficacy in relapsed/refractory patients who have received at least one prior therapy. IMBRUVICA combination therapy resulted in an 88% overall response rate in MCL patients with a complete response rate of 40%. IMBRUVICA is jointly developed and commercialized by Pharmacyclics and Janssen Biotech, a unit of Johnson and Johnson (JNJ).
