About the Carfilzomib Development Program

Carfilzomib is a selective, next-generation proteasome inhibitor that has shown encouraging results in a broad clinical trial program in multiple myeloma.

As previously reported at the 46th American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) Annual Meeting, an ongoing, companion Phase 2 study, known as the 004 study, demonstrated encouraging overall response rates, tolerability and durable disease control when carfilzomib was administered as a single-agent in patients with relapsed and/or refractory multiple myeloma.  In 53 evaluable patients who had not been previously treated with bortezomib, carfilzomib achieved an overall response rate of 55 percent and a median duration of response of 11.5 months at 27mg/m2.  Forty percent of patients were refractory to their most recent therapy prior to entering the trial.  In the overall 004 study population, treatment with carfilzomib was well-tolerated, and no new or unexpected adverse events occurred. The most common Grade 3 treatment-emergent adverse events included: pneumonia (11 percent), anemia (9.7 percent), neutropenia (9.7 percent) and thrombocytopenia (9 percent). Peripheral neuropathy of any grade was infrequent, and no Grade 4 adverse
