disease (7.4 vs. 4.1 months, HR=0.49, p=0.0439).

As in the overall ITT population, compared with the PLD control arm, the TELCYTA plus PLD arm had a greater proportion of patients with a less favorable prognosis including more platinum refractory patients (13, 33% vs. 8, 23%) and lower prior best response rate (defined as CR plus PR) to platinum agents (17, 43% vs. 22, 63%).

Safety Results: The most common, non-hematologic adverse events, including nausea, fatigue, vomiting, and constipation, were similar in incidence and severity in both arms. In addition, 17% Grade 2-3 stomatitis and 9% Grade 2-3 palmar-plantar erythrodysesthesia (PPE) were observed in the TELCYTA plus PLD arm, compared to 23% Grade 2-3 stomatitis and 21% Grade 2-3 PPE in the PLD control arm. Grade 4 PPE (2%) was only observed in the PLD control arm. TELCYTA may ameliorate the incidence and severity of stomatitis and PPE known to be associated with PLD. There was a higher incidence of hematologic adverse events in patients on the TELCYTA plus PLD arm (66% vs. 44%). The hematologic adverse events were manageable with dose reductions and/or growth factor support in both treatment arms.

Secondary platinum resistance is defined as those patients whose disease relapses after 6 months of completion of therapy and fails a re-induction platinum-based regimen.
