  • Vorasidenib data from the INDIGO Phase 3 trial adds to the body of evidence on the impact of targeting the IDH mutation in cancer with the first major advancement in low-grade glioma in 23 years
  • Additional new data for TIBSOVO® (ivosidenib) continues to build on body of evidence behind targeted IDH inhibition in hard-to-treat cancers, including acute myeloid leukemia (AML) and chondrosarcoma

BOSTON and PARIS, May 25, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Servier, a leader in oncology committed to bringing the promise of tomorrow to the patients we serve, will showcase new data across its robust oncology portfolio at the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) annual meeting June 2-6, 2023. These latest data, including a plenary session selection, underscore the breadth of Servier's oncology pipeline and portfolio and the company's commitment to improving outcomes for difficult and hard-to-treat cancers with high unmet medical needs.

Among the data to be presented is a late breaking abstract featuring the results from the Phase 3 INDIGO study of vorasidenib in patients with residual or recurrent grade 2 IDH-mutant glioma. These data represent the first study to show clinically meaningful and statistically significant improvements in low-grade glioma in 23 years and was accepted as one of only four presentations for a plenary session to take place on June 4, 2023 from 1:00 – 4:00 p.m. C.T.

"Servier is leading the scientific research with IDH inhibition across a variety of difficult to treat cancers, and this year at ASCO, we are excited to showcase data that has the potential to shift the treatment paradigm for patients with IDH-mutant glioma," said Susan Pandya, M.D., Head of Cancer Metabolism Global Development Oncology & Immuno-Oncology, Servier. "IDH mutations are recognized as drivers of disease biology in patients with a broad range of cancers, including glioma, and the distinguishing selection of the Phase 3 INDIGO trial for a plenary session is a testament to the groundbreaking research that is yielding long-awaited progress for glioma patients."

Additional research to be presented includes:

  • Long-term follow up data, including updated overall survival, from the Phase 3 AGILE study of TIBSOVO® (ivosidenib) plus azacitidine in patients with previously untreated IDH1-mutant acute myeloid leukemia (AML) who are not eligible to receive intensive chemotherapy.
  • Long-term follow-up data for TIBSOVO monotherapy in patients with IDH1-mutant conventional chondrosarcoma, a rare bone malignancy for which there are no approved systemic therapies
  • Clinical and molecular characteristics for patients with relapsed/refractory IDH1-mutant AML with an exceptional response to TIBSOVO
  • Data from across Servier's global colorectal cancer (CRC) research

"Through a persistent focus on smart science, we are coming into ASCO with incredible momentum and exciting data from across our diversified portfolio," said Philippe Gonnard, M.D., Executive Vice President, Global Product Strategy at Servier. "Building off the recent European Commission approval for TIBSOVO in certain patients with acute myeloid leukemia (AML) and cholangiocarcinoma, we look forward to showcasing updated overall survival for TIBSOVO in patients with AML, as well as sharing the positive results from our Phase 3 INDIGO study of vorasidenib in residual/recurrent grade 2 IDH-mutant diffuse glioma - marking the first major advancement in low-grade glioma in more than two decades and cementing our leadership in IDH inhibition."

TIBSOVO IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION AND INDICATION FOR U.S. PATIENTS

INDICATIONS

TIBSOVO is an isocitrate dehydrogenase-1 (IDH1) inhibitor indicated for patients with a susceptible IDH1 mutation as detected by an FDA-approved test with:

Newly Diagnosed Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML)

  • In combination with azacitidine or as monotherapy for the treatment of newly diagnosed AML in adults 75 years or older, or who have comorbidities that preclude the use of intensive induction chemotherapy

Relapsed or Refractory AML

  • For the treatment of adult patients with relapsed or refractory AML

Locally Advanced or Metastatic Cholangiocarcinoma

  • For the treatment of adult patients with locally advanced or metastatic cholangiocarcinoma who have been previously treated

IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION

WARNING: DIFFERENTIATION SYNDROME IN AML
Patients treated with TIBSOVO have experienced symptoms of differentiation syndrome, which can be fatal. Symptoms may include fever, dyspnea, hypoxia, pulmonary infiltrates, pleural or pericardial effusions, rapid weight gain or peripheral edema, hypotension, and hepatic, renal, or multi–organ dysfunction. If differentiation syndrome is suspected, initiate corticosteroid therapy and hemodynamic monitoring until symptom resolution.

WARNINGS AND PRECAUTIONS

Differentiation Syndrome in AML: In the combination study AG120-C-009, 15% (11/71) of patients with newly diagnosed AML treated with TIBSOVO plus azacitidine experienced differentiation syndrome. Differentiation syndrome is associated with rapid proliferation and differentiation of myeloid cells and may be life-threatening or fatal. Symptoms of differentiation syndrome in patients treated with TIBSOVO included noninfectious leukocytosis, peripheral edema, pyrexia, dyspnea, pleural effusion, hypotension, hypoxia, pulmonary edema, pneumonitis, pericardial effusion, rash, fluid overload, tumor lysis syndrome, and creatinine increased. Of the 11 patients with newly diagnosed AML who experienced differentiation syndrome with TIBSOVO plus azacitidine, 8 (73%) recovered. Differentiation syndrome occurred as early as 3 days after start of therapy and during the first month on treatment.

In the monotherapy clinical trial AG120-C-001, 25% (7/28) of patients with newly diagnosed AML and 19% (34/179) of patients with relapsed or refractory AML treated with TIBSOVO experienced differentiation syndrome. Of the 7 patients with newly diagnosed AML who experienced differentiation syndrome, 6 (86%) patients recovered. Of the 34 patients with relapsed or refractory AML who experienced differentiation syndrome, 27 (79%) patients recovered after treatment or after dose interruption of TIBSOVO. Differentiation syndrome occurred as early as 1 day and up to 3 months after TIBSOVO initiation and has been observed with or without concomitant leukocytosis.

If differentiation syndrome is suspected, initiate dexamethasone 10 mg IV every 12 hours (or an equivalent dose of an alternative oral or IV corticosteroid) and hemodynamic monitoring until improvement. If concomitant noninfectious leukocytosis is observed, initiate treatment with hydroxyurea or leukapheresis, as clinically indicated. Taper corticosteroids and hydroxyurea after resolution of symptoms and administer corticosteroids for a minimum of 3 days. Symptoms of differentiation syndrome may recur with premature discontinuation of corticosteroid and/or hydroxyurea treatment. If severe signs and/or symptoms persist for more than 48 hours after initiation of corticosteroids, interrupt TIBSOVO until signs and symptoms are no longer severe.

QTc Interval Prolongation: Patients treated with TIBSOVO can develop QT (QTc) prolongation and ventricular arrhythmias. Concomitant use of TIBSOVO with drugs known to prolong the QTc interval (e.g., anti-arrhythmic medicines, fluoroquinolones, triazole anti–fungals, 5–HT3 receptor antagonists) and CYP3A4 inhibitors may increase the risk of QTc interval prolongation. Conduct monitoring of electrocardiograms (ECGs) and electrolytes. In patients with congenital long QTc syndrome, congestive heart failure, or electrolyte abnormalities, or in those who are taking medications known to prolong the QTc interval, more frequent monitoring may be necessary.

Interrupt TIBSOVO if QTc increases to greater than 480 msec and less than 500 msec. Interrupt and reduce TIBSOVO if QTc increases to greater than 500 msec. Permanently discontinue TIBSOVO in patients who develop QTc interval prolongation with signs or symptoms of life-threatening arrhythmia.

Guillain-Barré Syndrome: Guillain-Barré syndrome can develop in patients treated with TIBSOVO. Monitor patients taking TIBSOVO for onset of new signs or symptoms of motor and/or sensory neuropathy such as unilateral or bilateral weakness, sensory alterations, paresthesias, or difficulty breathing. Permanently discontinue TIBSOVO in patients who are diagnosed with Guillain-Barré syndrome.

ADVERSE REACTIONS

  • In patients with AML, the most common adverse reactions including laboratory abnormalities (≥25%) are leukocytes decreased, diarrhea, hemoglobin decreased, platelets decreased, glucose increased, fatigue, alkaline phosphatase increased, edema, potassium decreased, nausea, vomiting, phosphate decreased, decreased appetite, sodium decreased, leukocytosis, magnesium decreased, aspartate aminotransferase increased, arthralgia, dyspnea, uric acid increased, abdominal pain, creatinine increased, mucositis, rash, electrocardiogram QT prolonged, differentiation syndrome, calcium decreased, neutrophils decreased, and myalgia
  • In patients with cholangiocarcinoma, the most common adverse reactions (≥15%) are fatigue, nausea, abdominal pain, diarrhea, cough, decreased appetite, ascites, vomiting, anemia, and rash. The most common laboratory abnormalities (≥10%) in patients with cholangiocarcinoma are hemoglobin decreased, aspartate aminotransferase increased, and bilirubin increased

DRUG INTERACTIONS

Strong or Moderate CYP3A4 Inhibitors: Reduce TIBSOVO dose with strong CYP3A4 inhibitors. Monitor patients for increased risk of QTc interval prolongation.

Strong CYP3A4 Inducers: Avoid concomitant use with TIBSOVO.

Sensitive CYP3A4 Substrates: Avoid concomitant use with TIBSOVO.

QTc Prolonging Drugs: Avoid concomitant use with TIBSOVO. If co-administration is unavoidable, monitor patients for increased risk of QTc interval prolongation.

LACTATION

Because many drugs are excreted in human milk and because of the potential for adverse reactions in breastfed children, advise women not to breastfeed during treatment with TIBSOVO and for 1 month after the last dose.
