Cyramza® (ramucirumab): Tidigare TKI-behandling i REVEL

I REVEL-studien fick 23 patienter i ramucirumab + docetaxelarmen samt 7 patienter i docetaxelarmen, tidigare TKI-behandling.

Study Design

The REVEL trial was a phase 3, multicenter, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial in patients with pathologically confirmed, squamous or nonsquamous, stage IV NSCLC with disease progression during or after 1 prior platinum-based chemotherapy. Prior treatment with bevacizumab and prior maintenance therapy were allowed and all patients had an ECOG PS of 0 or 1. Patients were randomly assigned in a 1:1 ratio (stratified by sex, region, PS, and previous maintenance therapy) to receive treatment with ramucirumab (10 mg/kg every 3 weeks) plus docetaxel (75 mg/m2 every 3 weeks) (n=628) or placebo plus docetaxel (75 mg/m2 every 3 weeks) (n=625) until disease progression, unacceptable toxicity, withdrawal, or death.1

Prior TKI Therapy

Patients were excluded from participation in the REVEL study if their only prior treatment for advanced disease was a TKI (eg, erlotinib).1 The number of patients who received prior TKI therapy in addition to one prior platinum-based chemotherapy regimen in the REVEL study is presented in Table 1
