A Stage IV Malignant Melanoma Drug That Increases Overall Survival Would Earn a Higher Patient Share in the U.S. Than in Europe
Date:1/19/2009

Ipilimumab Will Earn Decision Resources' Clinical Gold Standard for Stage IV Malignant Melanoma in 2012, According to a New Report from Decision Resources

WALTHAM, Mass., Jan. 19 /PRNewswire/ -- Decision Resources, one of the world's leading research and advisory firms for pharmaceutical and healthcare issues, finds that a drug for treating stage IV malignant melanoma that can increase median overall survival when compared with standard of care dacarbazine (Bedford Laboratories' DTIC-Dome, generics) would earn a higher patient share in the U.S. (60 percent) than in Europe (40 percent), according to surveyed U.S. and European oncologists.

The new report entitled Malignant Melanoma (Stage IV): Emerging Therapies Must Increase Overall Survival over Dacarbazine to Attain High Patient Share finds that clinical data and the opinions of interviewed thought leaders indicate that Bristol-Myers Squibb/Medarex's ipilimumab has advantages over dacarbazine in the attribute of median overall survival. Following its approval in 2010 for the indication, ipilimumab will earn Decision Resources' proprietary clinical gold standard for stage IV malignant melanoma from 2012 to 2017.

"Ipilimumab has competitive advantages in efficacy and has been shown, in combination with dacarbazine, to almost double median overall survival when compared to Schering-Plough's Temodar, our clinical gold standard in 2008 for stage IV malignant melanoma," said Decision Resources Analyst Karen Pomeranz, Ph.D. "According to oncologists we surveyed, overall survival is the highest-weighted end point for stage IV malignant melanoma, which further stresses the significance of ipilimumab's achievement in increasing overall survival."
