Abstract #139: Subsequent Treatment with APC8015F May Have Prolonged Survival of the Control Arm in Phase 3 Sipuleucel-T Studies
This exploratory analysis evaluated the survival of patients who were randomized to the control arm in the three metastatic castrate resistant prostate cancer PROVENGE® (sipuleucel-T) Phase 3 clinical trials (D9901, D9902A, D9902B). Control used in the trial was non-activated autologous peripheral blood mononuclear cells. Patients in these trials who were randomized to receive control had the opportunity to participate in an open label Phase 2 protocol that allowed them to receive APC8015F, an investigational autologous cellular immunotherapy made from cryopreserved cells at the time of control generation.
Results from the exploratory analysis show patients treated with APC8015F (n=155) after their disease progressed had improved survival relative to the patients not treated in the control arm (n=61). Following disease progression, the median survival of patients treated with APC8015F was 20.0 months compared to 9.8 months for control patient
