Wyeth Initiates INTORACT -- A New Clinical Trial to Examine TORISEL Plus Avastin for First-Line Treatment of Advanced Kidney Cancer
Date:5/30/2008

temsirolimus may provide further evidence of clinical utility in advanced RCC," says Brian Rini, M.D., of the Cleveland Clinic Taussig Cancer Institute in Cleveland, and co-principal investigator of INTORACT.

RCC will account for approximately 85 percent of the estimated 54,390 new cases of kidney cancer that will be diagnosed in the United States annually, and about 40 percent of these patients will have advanced disease at the time of diagnosis. Clear-cell RCC accounts for about 75 percent of all RCC cases.

Wyeth is conducting a number of studies examining TORISEL in various settings. Additional information about TORISEL studies is available at http://www.clinicaltrials.gov.

About TORISEL

TORISEL is the only approved cancer therapy that specifically inhibits the mTOR kinase, an important regulator of cell proliferation, cell growth and cell survival. Inhibition of mTOR in treated cancer cells blocked the translation of genes that regulate the cell cycle. In in vitro studies using renal cancer cell lines, TORISEL inhibited the activity of mTOR and resulted in reduced levels of certain cell growth factors involved in the development of new blood vessels, such as vascular endothelial growth factor.

TORISEL is approved for the treatment of advanced RCC in the United States, European Union and other markets, based on results of a phase 3 clinical study that demonstrated that TORISEL improves overall survival for patients with advanced RCC compared with interferon-alfa.

Important Safety Information

Hypersensitivity reactions manifested by symptoms, including, but not limited to anaphylaxis, dyspnea, flushing, and chest pain have been observed with TORISEL. Serum glucose, serum cholesterol, and triglycerides should be tested before and during treatment with TORISEL. The use of TORISEL is likely to result in hyperglycemia and hyperlipemia. This may result in the need
