"Based on promising results from this trial, we are planning to enroll patients in a Phase 3 trial to further evaluate this three-drug combination therapy in patients with relapsed myeloma," said Michael Kauffman, M.D., Ph.D., Chief Medical Officer at Onyx.  "Later this year, we expect to submit a U.S. New Drug Application filing for carfilzomib as a single agent for relapsed/refractory myeloma under the accelerated approval mechanism, pending the top-line results from our Phase 2b trial, known as the 003-A1 study."  

About the Carfilzomib Development Program

Carfilzomib is a selective, next-generation proteasome inhibitor that is being investigated in a broad clinical trial program in multiple myeloma.

The pivotal Phase 2b monotherapy study, also known as 003-A1, enrolled patients with relapsed/refractory multiple myeloma.  Top-line results, expected mid-year, may support the filing of a U.S. New Drug Application (NDA) by year-end 2010.  

A European Phase 3 clinical trial of carfilzomib is planned in relapsed/refractory myeloma and is designed to support a registrational filing with the EMA. Carfilzomib is also being evaluated in advanced solid tumors.
