Clinical Update - Decapeptyl(R)/Trelstar(R) 6-Month Formulation in Advanced Prostate Cancer
Date:2/12/2008

- Presentation of Efficacy and Safety Phase III Results -

LAUSANNE, Switzerland, Feb. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- Debiopharm Group (Debiopharm), a global independent biopharmaceutical development specialist focusing on serious medical conditions and particularly oncology, presented today at the 9th International Symposium on GnRH in Berlin, Germany, the results of a phase III study with its new 6-month formulation of Decapeptyl(R)/Trelstar(R) (triptorelin), a luteinizing hormone releasing hormone (LHRH) agonist for the treatment of advanced prostate cancer. These results show similar efficacy and safety to the already marketed 1- and 3-month formulations.

This multicenter, open, non-comparative, phase III study on the efficacy and safety of two consecutive injections of triptorelin 6-month formulation in 120 patients with advanced prostate cancer, showed that 97.5% of patients achieved castrate levels of serum testosterone 28 days after the first injection and that 93% of the patients maintained serum testosterone levels below castrate level (defined as < or equal to 1.735 nmol/L or 50 ng/dL) from week 8 to 48. These efficacy results are similar to those obtained previously with repeated administrations of the 1- and 3-month formulations of triptorelin. Furthermore the adverse event profile of the new 6-month formulation of triptorelin is fully comparable to that observed with the 1- and 3-month formulations.

"Our 1- and 3-month formulations of Decapeptyl(R) and Trelstar(R) are used worldwide in the treatment of prostate cancer. However they require one injection every 4 or 12 weeks respectively. The 6-month formulation will improve patient compliance and increase convenience and comfort with the need of only one intramuscular injection every 24 weeks," said Kamel Besseghir, CEO of Debiopharm S.A.
