07:12 EDTLLYEli Lilly announces results from pivotal UNCOVER studies for ixekizumab
Eli Lilly announces that its investigational medicine ixekizumab was statistically superior to etanercept and placebo on all skin clearance measures in Phase 3 studies. Patients treated with both dosing regimens of ixekizumab had significantly greater levels of skin clearance compared to placebo and to etanercept at the 12-week endpoint. Skin clearance was measured by standard primary endpoints for psoriasis studies: the Psoriasis Area and Severity Index and the Static Physician Global Assessment. For patients treated with ixekizumab either every four weeks or every two weeks, between 78 to 90 percent of patients achieved at least a 75 percent reduction in PASI score at 12 weeks. Additionally, 31 to 41 percent of these patients achieved PASI 100, or clear skin, at week 12. For comparison, between 5 to 7 percent of patients treated with etanercept in the UNCOVER-2 and 3 studies achieved PASI 100. Adverse events were comparable for patients receiving ixekizumab in the 12-week, randomized control portion across all three studies.

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.”
