Date:6/3/2013

s European prospective, observational study included 2,310 patients with solid tumors, lymphomas or myelomas. The majority of patients (>80 percent) enrolled in this study achieved a pre-defined hemoglobin (Hb) response with Retacrit in a real-world clinical setting.   Retacrit was well tolerated in this study with an overall rate of thrombotic events at 3.5 percent. In this observational study, no epoetin alfa biosimilar-related deaths were reported.1

"Patients in the study showed a very good rate of response to Retacrit and tolerated it well," said Dr. Elisabeth Luporsi-Gely , of ICL Alexis Vautrin, Vandoeuvre-les-Nancy, France, and one of the study's principal investigators. "This is the first post-marketing observation study conducted in France for a biosimilar, and the results reinforce why there is a growing acceptance of biosimilars. The introduction of biosimilars has offered new options for patients and has helped bring cost savings to the healthcare system."

In addition to the results from this study, several Hospira-related studies (view links below) were presented at the ASCO Annual Meeting, including:
