07:05 EDTSPPISpectrum annoubces publication of Evomela for injection data
Spectrum Pharmaceuticals announced publication of results from the pivotal clinical study for EVOMELA, used for myeloablative conditioning in multiple myeloma patients undergoing autologous transplantation. The study, led by Dr. Parameswaran Hari from Froedtert Hospital and Medical College of Wisconsin, was published in the Biology of Blood and Marrow Transplantation journal. The BBMT journal publication includes data on 61 patients who were enrolled in this open-label Phase 2b pivotal study at five US study sites; 56 patients had newly diagnosed disease and five had relapsed MM following prior ASCT. Patients enrolled in this study received 200 mg/m2 of EVOMELA as two doses on Day -3 and Day -2 prior to ASCT. Efficacy was assessed by clinical response at Day +100 with an ORR of 95% and CR rate of 31% based on investigators' assessments, and rates of 100% and 21%, respectively based on independent pathology review; the lower rate of confirmed CRs in the independent review was due to missing data. Importantly, the five patients who had previously relapsed from a prior ASCT were all shown to achieve a response to EVOMELA. All patients in the study achieved myeloablation with a median of 5 days post-ASCT, and all patients had successful neutrophil and platelet engraftment. Treatment-related mortality was 0%, and non-hematologic adverse events were mostly Grade 1 and Grade 2 in severity. The incidence of Grade 3 mucositis and Grade 3 stomatitis were 10% and 5%, respectively with no Grade 4 mucositis or stomatitis reported. Twenty percent of patients experienced treatment-emergent serious adverse events, most of which were Grade 3, and consisted of events commonly reported in patients undergoing myeloablative chemotherapy; no new safety signals were identified.
