"The interim analysis of our Phase 3 IMPACT trial was an important milestone for us. We were encouraged to see a 20 percent reduction in the risk of death in the PROVENGE arm versus placebo at the time of this analysis in a patient population that currently has few appealing treatment options available," stated Mitchell H. Gold, M.D., president and chief executive officer of Dendreon Corporation. "Importantly, the results from this interim analysis are consistent with those from our previous Phase 3 studies at a similar follow-up time, and we are looking forward to the final analysis of the IMPACT trial in the middle of next year."
