Cyramza® (ramucirumab): Effektivitet och säkerhet beroende på kön i RELAY

I RELAY observerades inga signifikanta skillnader i effekt mellan manliga och kvinnliga deltagare och säkerhetsprofilen mellan behandlingsarmarna var förenlig med den som observerades i den totala säkerhetspopulationen.

Study Design

The RELAY trial was a phase 3, global, multicenter, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial in patients (N=449) with previously untreated EGFR mutation-positive, metastatic NSCLC. All patients had an EGFR mutation of exon 19 deletion or exon 21 L858R and an ECOG PS of 0 or 1. Patients were randomly assigned in a 1:1 ratio (stratified by sex, region, EGFR status, and EGFR testing method) to receive treatment with erlotinib (150 mg/day) plus ramucirumab (10 mg/kg every 2 weeks; n=224) or placebo (10 mg/kg every 2 weeks; n=225) until disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.1

Enrollment According to Gender

Among patients who received ramucirumab plus erlotinib

  • 83 (37%) were male, and

  • 141 (63%) were female.

Among patients who received placebo plus erlotinib

  • 83 (37%) were male, and

  • 142 (63%) were female.1

Efficacy According to Gender

No significant differences in efficacy were observed between the gender subgroups.1 Efficacy results according to gender are summarized in Table 1.

Safety According to Gender

The safety profile within gender subgroups between treatment arms was consistent with that observed in the overall safety population.2 The majority of differences in incidences of specific TEAEs between female and male patients were observed in low-grade (Grades 1-2) events. A higher proportion (a difference of at least 5 percentage points) of female patients compared to male patients experienced Grade ≥3 laboratory hepatic events, independent of treatment arm. No other clinically relevant differences were seen in terms of TEAE profile between treatment arms within subgroups or across female and male subgroups.2 Any grade TEAEs that occurred in at least 20% of patients in the ramucirumab arm are summarized in Table 2.
