Emerging Lymphoma and Myeloma Treatments Focus on Improving Individual Patient Response
Date:12/11/2011

treatment group achieved an objective response to therapy (previously reported as 48%), and 44 percent of the patients in the 840 mg cohort achieved an objective response at six months follow-up. An additional 19 percent of the 420 mg cohort and 35 percent of the 840 mg cohort had a nodal partial response, meaning their disease responded to therapy as represented by a 50 percent or greater reduction in lymph node size, but some lymph nodules persisted. Importantly, 82 percent of patients remain on treatment, and only 8 percent have experienced progressive disease.

Two patients discontinued the trial because of adverse events, and six patients required a dose reduction. The most frequently reported adverse events included diarrhea, fatigue, nausea, and ecchymosis (apparent skin bruising). Serious adverse events (SAEs, which are considered relatively common among this immune-compromised patient population) occurred in 38 percent of patients, with 10 percent considered potentially related to treatment. Grade ≥3 severe AEs considered potentially related to treatment occurred in 21 percent of patients. In addition, the majority of patients experienced high lymphocyte count, an event well-documented with this type of treatment, during the first two months of treatment that resolved over time.

"Our results suggest that PC-32765 has the potential to be highly effective and tolerable, and, more importantly, appears to be working well in patients with poor prognoses," said lead author Susan O'Brien, MD, Professor in the Department of Leukemia at The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston. "As we become better equipped to target specific cellular functions, it is our hope that therapies like PCI-32765 will become effective interventions to manage disease in patients with CLL."

Dr. O'Brien will present this study in an oral presentation on Tuesday, December 13, at 8:30 a.m. PST at the San Diego Convention Center in Ballroom 20A.
