Celgene (CELG) Release: REVLIMID® and VIDAZA® Combination Therapy Achieves Nearly 30 Percent Complete Response in Untreated Elderly Patients With Acute Myeloid Leukemia


12/11/2012 10:13:29 AM

BOUDRY, Switzerland--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Celgene International Sàrl (NASDAQ: CELG) today announced that results from a study evaluating the combination of REVLIMID (lenalidomide) plus VIDAZA (azacitidine) in patients 60 years or older with untreated acute myeloid leukemia (AML) were presented at the American Society of Hematology annual meeting in Atlanta, GA. In the phase II investigator-initiated study, patients received azacitidine 75 mg/m2/day, days 1-7 followed by lenalidomide 50 mg/day, days 8-28 of 42-day cycles. Treatment was continued until disease progression, unacceptable adverse event or completion of 12 cycles. With 42 patients enrolled in the study, the overall response rate was 41%, with 28% of patients achieving a complete response (CR/CRi). The median time to CR and CRi was 12 and 6 weeks, respectively; the median duration of response (CR/CRi/PR) was 28 weeks (range 6 to >104 weeks). Median overall survival for all patients in the study was 20 weeks (range 1 to >121 weeks) and 69 weeks (range 10 to >121 weeks) for patients who responded to therapy. Additionally, median overall survival for responders was superior to non-responders (69 vs. 15 weeks p<0.01).
