  • All clazakizumab treatment arms, both as monotherapy as well as in combination with methotrexate (MTX), met the primary endpoint of ACR20 response at 12 weeks, compared to MTX alone.
  • Clazakizumab demonstrated promising rates of low disease activity and remission based on DAS28, CDAI and SDAI criteria in the study which included MTX and anti-TNF comparator arms.
  • Overall the safety profile was consistent with the known pharmacology of IL6 blockade. The most frequent AE for clazakizumab was dose-related injection site reactions and these were mostly mild with few leading to discontinuation.
  • Clazakizumab is a humanized anti-IL-6 monoclonal antibody directed against the IL-6 cytokine rather than the receptor.

SAN DIEGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Bristol-Myers Squibb Company (NYSE:BMY) and Alder Biopharmaceuticals today announced the presentation of efficacy and safety data from a Phase IIb dose-ranging study of subcutaneous (SC) clazakizumab in adults with moderate-to-severe rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and an inadequate response to methotrexate (MTX). Clazakizumab is a humanized anti-IL-6 monoclonal antibody that is directed against the IL-6 cytokine rather than its receptor.

  • Across dose cohorts, 42% and 24% of heavily pre-treated patients with non-small cell lung cancer were alive at one and two years, respectively, based on Kaplan-Meier estimates
  • Spectrum, frequency and severity of treatment-related adverse events were consistent with those initially reported
  • Development program consists of more than 25 studies in broad range of tumors, including seven potentially registrational trials in lung cancer, melanoma and renal cell carcinoma

PRINCETON, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Bristol-Myers Squibb Company (NYSE:BMY) today announced long-term follow-up results (median follow up of 20.3 months) from the lung cancer cohort (n=129) of the expanded Phase 1 dose-ranging study (003) of nivolumab, an investigational PD-1 immune checkpoint inhibitor. Results showed sustained activity in heavily pre-treated patients with non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) as defined by one- and two-year survival rates of 42% and 24%, respectively, across dose cohorts.

  • Dapagliflozin added to metformin plus sulfonylurea demonstrated significantly greater improvements in HbA1c from baseline compared to placebo
  • Significantly more patients treated with dapagliflozin achieved goal HbA1c levels of less than 7%, a key secondary endpoint
  • Among other key secondary endpoints, dapagliflozin showed significant reductions in fasting plasma glucose and body weight at 24 weeks, and systolic blood pressure at 8 weeks
  • Overall rates of adverse events were similar between the two treatment groups, and most were reported as mild or moderate in intensity

WILMINGTON, Del. & PRINCETON, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--AstraZeneca (NYSE: AZN) and Bristol-Myers Squibb Company (NYSE: BMY) today announced results from a Phase III study evaluating dapagliflozin in adult patients with type 2 diabetes who were inadequately controlled on combination treatment with metformin plus sulfonylurea.

  • Primary endpoint of overall survival did not reach statistical significance in this advanced patient population (p=0.053); however, anti-tumor activity was observed in other efficacy endpoints, including progression-free survival
  • Drug-related adverse events were mostly immune-related, consistent with those observed previously with Yervoy
  • Phase 3 trial (Study 095) assessing overall survival of Yervoy in patients with less advanced castration-resistant prostate cancer who have received no prior cytotoxic treatment is ongoing

PRINCETON, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Bristol-Myers Squibb Company (NYSE:BMY) today reported results from the Phase 3 randomized, double-blind clinical trial (Study 043) comparing Yervoy 10 mg/kg (ipilimumab) (n=399) to placebo (n=400) following radiation in patients with advanced metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer (mCRPC) who have received prior treatment with docetaxel. The study’s primary endpoint of overall survival (OS) did not reach statistical significance (HR = 0.85; 95% CI = 0.72-1.00; p = 0.053).
