GlaxoSmithKline's Drug Will Become New Clinical Gold Standard by 2012 for the Treatment of Relapsed/Refractory CLL
Date:1/20/2009

An Agent Showing Improvement in Overall Response Rate Would Earn Higher Patient Share in U.S. Than Europe, According to a New Report from Decision Resources

WALTHAM, Mass., Jan. 20 /PRNewswire/ -- Decision Resources, one of the world's leading research and advisory firms focusing on pharmaceutical and healthcare issues, finds that GlaxoSmithKline's ofatumumab will become Decision Resources' proprietary clinical gold-standard treatment for relapsed/refractory chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) by 2012. This shift is due to ofatumumab's competitive advantages over the current gold standard--Bayer Schering Pharma's Campath/MabCampath--in efficacy (overall response rate), safety and tolerability (hematological toxicities and infections) and delivery (frequency).

The new report entitled Relapsed/Refractory Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia: Physicians Are Eager for Increasingly Efficacious Therapies in the Refractory Setting finds that an agent showing improvement in overall response rate, compared to Campath/MabCampath, for high-risk, relapsed/refractory patients would earn a higher patient share in the U.S. (50 percent) than in Europe (40 percent). This is because European oncologists are more cost-conscious than U.S. physicians and such a drug would bear a slight price increase.

"The European market is more sensitive to increases in price than the U.S. market, and the price of Campath/MabCampath is already very high in both markets. Even though European oncologists forecast a more conservative patient share for such an agent, a patient share of 40 percent is considerable in the relapsed/refractory CLL market," stated Andrew Merron, Ph.D., analyst at Decision Resources.
