Data from Pharmawand - Curated by EPG Health - Date added 15 July 2017

Amgen announced the submission of a supplemental New Drug Application (sNDA) to the FDA and a variation to the marketing application to the European Medicines Agency (EMA) to include overall survival (OS) data from the Phase III head-to-head ENDEAVOR trial in the product information for Kyprolis (carfilzomib).

Data submitted to regulatory authorities showed that Kyprolis, administered at the 56 mg/m2 dose as a 30-minute infusion twice weekly with dexamethasone (Kd56), reduced the risk of death by 21 percent over Velcade (bortezomib) and dexamethasone (Vd), resulting in a 7.6 month OS benefit (median OS 47.6 months for Kd56 versus 40.0 months for Vd, HR=0.79; p=0.01). The OS benefit was consistent regardless of prior bortezomib therapy (HR 0.75 for no prior Velcade; HR 0.84 for prior Velcade). These results were presented earlier this year at the 16th International Myeloma Workshop and the 22nd Congress of the European Hematology Association .
