PALOMA-2 progression-free survival

In PALOMA-2, IBRANCE in combination with letrozole delivered >2 years mPFS in 
1st line1,2 with 37.6 months of clinical trial follow-up2

PALOMA-2 PFS* Kaplan-Meier Curve1​​​​​​​

In a 2:1 randomised, double-blind, Phase III trial of post-menopausal women with ER+/HER2- mBC (N=666)1

35.7 months of mPFS with IBRANCE + letrozole (95% CI: 27.7–38.9) vs 19.5 months with placebo + letrozole (95% CI: 16.6–26.6) in a blinded independent central review (HR=0.611; 95% CI: 0.485–0.769)2

Adapted from Finn RS, et al. 20161 and Rugo H, et al. 2019.²
*Evaluated according to RECIST Version 1.1.1 †Data cut-off date: February 26, 2016. ‡Data cut-off date: May 31, 2017.
 Updated follow-up of the primary analysis of PALOMA-2: 37.6 months in the IBRANCE + LET arm.2

This benefit was seen across a broad range of women

In an updated non-prespecified subgroup analysis, IBRANCE in combination with letrozole extended mPFS across the 1st line post-menopausal patient subgroups studied vs placebo+ letrozole:²*

Subgroups included:
  • Elderly patients (≥65 years)
  • Patients with visceral disease
  • Patients with bone-only disease
