Randomization Required: Liver Signal Necessitated Kadcyla Trial With Control Arm

A pivotal trial with a control arm was necessary to evaluate a hepatotoxicity signal with Genentech’s Kadcyla, helping to derail a bid for accelerated approval based on a single-arm Phase II trial. Genentech’s strategy of running trials in different lines of treatment concurrently enabled a quick strategy shift as an ongoing controlled Phase III trial in another line was amended to meet FDA’s regulatory requests.

Onyx’s Myeloma Drug Kyprolis Fits ODAC’s View On Accelerated Approval

FDA’s Oncologic Drugs Advisory Committee overwhelmingly endorsed the second-generation proteasome inhibitor for accelerated approval in the relapsed/refractory population. Onyx’s reliance on a single-arm study was appropriate given the lack of treatment options in a heavily pre-treated population, said ODAC members, who also looked favorably upon the company’s advanced plans for confirmatory trials.
