PALOMA-3 progression-free survival

In PALOMA-3, IBRANCE in combination with fulvestrant in 1st line or later doubled mPFS vs placebo + fulvestrant in patients with progression on/after ET*1,2​​​​​​​

PALOMA-3 PFS* Kaplan-Meier Curve1,2

In a 2:1 randomised, double-blind, Phase III trial of women with HR+/HER2- mBC whose disease progressed following ET (N=521)2

Adapted from Cristofanilli M, et al. 20162 and IBRANCE SmPC.1​​​​​​Evaluated according to RECIST Version1.1.2Data cut-off date: March 16, 2015.
Updated non-prespecified analysis.
Data cut-off date: October 23, 2015.
lmprovement in PFS was seen across a broad range of patients

IBRANCE in combination with fulvestrant reduced the risk of disease progression vs placebo+fulvestrant in multiple pre-defined patient subpopulations2,3

Subpopulations included:
  • Pre-/peri-menopausal women
  • Elderly patients (≥65 years)
  • Patients with visceral metastases
PALOMA-3 PFS Subgroup Analyses2,3*Adapted from IBRANCE EPAR Public assessment report.3
Data cut-off: 23 October 2015.
*Visceral metastasis was defined as lung, liver, brain, pleural, or peritoneal involvement.2 
Sensitivity to prior hormonal therapy is defined as either a) documented clinical benefit (i.e. complete response, partial response or stable disease ≥24 weeks) to at least 1 prior hormonal therapy in the metastatic setting or b) at least 24 months of adjuvant hormonal therapy prior to recurrence.3Disease-free interval is time from diagnosis of primary breast cancer to first relapse in patients who received adjuvant therapy.3 Aromatase inhibitor = anastrazole, letrozole or exemestane. Anti-estrogen = tamoxifen, tamoxifen citrate, toremifene, or toremifene citrate.Other = neither an aromatase inhibitor nor an anti-estrogen.
*Evaluated according to RECIST Version 1.1.¹Explore More PALOMA-2
