NORTH CHICAGO, Ill., May 14, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- AbbVie (NYSE: ABBV), a global biopharmaceutical company, today announced results from an analysis of data pooled from three Phase 3 studies evaluating IMBRUVICA® (ibrutinib) use in patients with high-risk chronic lymphocytic leukemia/small lymphocytic lymphoma (CLL/SLL): RESONATETM, RESONATETM-2 and HELIOS. In this analysis, CLL/SLL patients with genomic abnormalities that typically put them at high risk for poor outcomes achieved higher complete response (CR) rates and overall response rates (ORR), as well as longer progression free survival (PFS) at 24 months and overall survival (OS) at 30 months, when treated with IMBRUVICA versus comparator-treated patients. In RESONATE, patients received IMBRUVICA or ofatumumab; in RESONATE-2, patients received IMBRUVICA or chlorambucil; and in HELIOS, patients received IMBRUVICA plus bendamustine and rituximab (BR) or placebo plus BR. The high-risk genomic abnormalities reviewed were deletion 11q (del 11q), trisomy 12, complex karyotype (CK) and unmutated immunoglobulin heavy-chain variable-region (IGHV). In IMBRUVICA-treated patients, the presence of del 11q was associated with trends of longer PFS and OS than patients without del 11q when treated with IMBRUVICA (abstract #19). These data will be presented today in an oral presentation at the 17th International Workshop on Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia (iwCLL) biennial meeting in New York, NY.
