Highlights from the OGX-011 Abstract
At the time data was submitted to ASCO and as previously disclosed in December 2008, the preliminary median overall survival in patients with advanced prostate cancer who were treated with OGX-011 plus docetaxel in a randomized Phase 2 trial was 27.5 months compared to 16.9 months for patients treated with docetaxel alone. The hazard ratio (HR), a measure used to determine the difference in survival between treatment groups, was 0.60, representing a 40% reduction in the rate of death for patients treated with OGX-011. New data disclosed today include a prospectively defined multivariate analysis evaluating variables predictive of overall survival. The analysis defined only three variables predictive of overall survival: performance status, presence of visceral metastasis and assignment to the OGX-011 treatment arm. Based on the multivariate analysis, patients treated with OGX-011 had a rate of death 46% lower than patients treated with docetaxel alone (HR=0.54; p=0.04).
The abstract represents survival data as of November 2008. Final survival data as of April 2009 for this trial will be presented during an oral presentation at ASCO.
