T-DM1 show overall survival advantage as Roche/Genentech make US and EU filings

This article was originally published in Scrip

Executive Summary

Roche and its cancer specialist unit Genentech have announced that following the demonstration of an overall survival benefit in the Phase III EMILIA study, they will file for US and EU regulatory approval of the antibody-drug conjugate T-DM1 (trastuzumab emtansine). The filing had been widely expected since the antibody-drug conjugate – developed with cytotoxic and conjugation technology developed by Waltham, Massachusetts-based Immunogen - generated impressive progression-free survival results in EMILIA. Analysts are anticipating approval as early as the first quarter of 2013.

Lilly’s Olumiant Could Get Blood Clot Redemption With EUA For COVID

When the US FDA approved Olumiant (baricitinib) for RA, it insisted on a lower dose because of fears of blood clots. Now that an NIH trial has shown that the product plus Gilead’s Veklury (remdesivir) provided a statistically significant reduction in time to recovery versus remdesivir alone for hospitalized COVID patients, Olumaint may get an emergency use authorization from FDA to treat a condition that itself causes blood clots. That doesn't mean the black box is going away; it's just a reminder that there is as much magic and mystery to medicine sometimes as there is science.
