IN THE ABRAXANE PHASE III STUDY

BASELINE PATIENT CHARACTERISTICS IN THE ABRAXANE PHASE III STUDY

*Most common dominant sites of metastasis.

Study design

Multicenter, 1:1 randomized, phase III study comparing ABRAXANE 260 mg/m2 IV q3w with paclitaxel injection 175 mg/m2 IV q3w in 460 patients with MBC. The primary efficacy endpoint was recTLRR. recTLRR was based on independent radiologic assessment of target lesions reconciled with investigator-reported responses for the first 6 cycles of therapy. The recTLRR was lower than the investigator-reported response rates, which are based on all cycles of therapy. The secondary endpoints were time to disease progression and overall survival.

  • ECOG=Eastern Cooperative Oncology; recTLRR=reconciled target lesion response rate.
  • A Rigorous Primary Efficacy Endpoint

    PHASE III RIGOROUS TUMOR RESPONSE ENDPOINT: recTLRR

    PHASE III RIGOROUS TUMOR RESPONSE ENDPOINT: recTLRR

    • The primary efficacy endpoint: reconciled target lesion response rate (recTLRR)
      – recTLRR was based on independent radiologic assessment of tumor responses
      – recTLRR was reconciled with investigator-reported responses for the first 6 cycles of therapy
      The primary efficacy endpoint: reconciled target lesion response rate (recTLRR)
      • recTLRR was based on independent radiologic assessment of tumor responses
      • recTLRR was reconciled with investigator-reported responses for the first 6 cycles of therapy
    • Secondary efficacy endpoints included time to disease progression and overall survival, among other measures22
    • An exploratory analysis was conducted for overall survival to evaluate the subgroup of patients receiving ABRAXANE as second-line or later therapy

    Patients who completed 6 cycles of ABRAXANE therapy and did not progress were able to continue treatment at the investigator's discretion.22

    RECOMMENDATIONS FOR METASTATIC BREAST CANCER PATIENTS WITH VISCERAL METASTASES

    The predominance of visceral metastases in the phase III study is consistent with the National Comprehensive Cancer Network® (NCCN®) recommended* patient population for albumin-bound paclitaxel (ABRAXANE)1

    *NCCN Guidelines® (v2.2017) recommend albumin-bound paclitaxel as Category 2A.

    Please refer to the NCCN Drugs & Biologics Compendium® (NCCN Compendium®) entry for albumin-bound paclitaxel, revised March 2017. http://www.nccn.org
