07:04 EDTPFEPfizer says primary endpoint met in Phase 3 study of BeneFIX
Pfizer announced the positive results of a Phase 3 study comparing a prophylaxis regimen of BeneFIX Coagulation Factor IX 100 IU/kg once-weekly to on-demand treatment in people with moderately severe to severe hemophilia B. The top-line results of the study showed that the primary study endpoint was met and hemophilia B patients taking once-weekly BeneFIX showed a statistically significant reduction in the annualized bleeding rate relative to on-demand treatment with BeneFIX. In the study, the median ABR value, a commonly used measure of efficacy for prophylaxis regimens in hemophilia, was 2.0 for the prophylaxis regimen, compared to 33.6 for the on-demand regimen, representing a 94% decrease in bleeding rates. The mean ABR value was 3.6 for the prophylaxis period, compared to 32.9 for the on-demand treatment, which represents a reduction of 89%. Study results also showed that prophylaxis treatment significantly reduced both spontaneous and traumatic ABR compared to on-demand treatment with BeneFIX. In addition to meeting the primary endpoint, the secondary study endpoints showed that none of the 1,254 prophylaxis infusions administered during the study were associated with a less than expected therapeutic effect occurrence, which was defined as a spontaneous bleed occurring within 48 hours of a prophylaxis infusion. These results are preliminary, top-line data and are subject to additional analyses. Complete results from this study will be submitted for presentation at upcoming medical congresses and submitted for publication in a peer-reviewed journal.
