CANCELLED MORNING SESSION; AFTERNOON SESSION TO TAKE PLACE FROM 9 AM-3PM. July 24, 2012: Oncologic Drugs Advisory Committee Meeting Announcement

UPDATED INFORMATION (as of 7/13/12):
The morning session of the Oncologic Drugs Advisory Committee meeting that was to discuss supplemental new drug application (sNDA) 022059/014 with the trade name Tykerb (lapatinib) tablets, application submitted by SmithKline Beecham (Cork) Ltd, Ireland d/b/a GlaxoSmithKline for the proposed indication in combination with trastuzumab for the treatment of patients with metastatic breast cancer whose tumors overexpress HER2 and who have received prior trastuzumab therapy(s) has been CANCELLED.

The afternoon session of the Oncologic Drugs Advisory Committee to discuss the evaluation of radiographic review in randomized clinical trials using progression-free survival (PFS) as a primary endpoint in non-hematologic malignancies will take place from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on July 24, 2012.

In summary, the following updates are being made for the July 24, 2012 Oncologic Drugs Advisory Committee meeting:

Time
The time is updated to read: “9 a.m. to 3 p.m.”

Agenda:
The agenda is updated to read as follows: On July 24, 2012, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., the committee will discuss the evaluation of radiographic review in randomized clinical trials using progression-free survival (PFS) as a primary endpoint in non-hematologic malignancies. They will consider the merits of an independent audit of investigator progression assessment in a pre-specified subgroup of patients instead of an independent review of all progression assessments. The expectation is that an independent audit would streamline the conduct of clinical trials, as well as avoid missing data when no additional protocol specified progression assessments are mandated. Hematologic malignancies are excluded from this discussion because other issues (e.g., blood counts, lymph node exams, and other biomarkers) influence the assessment of PFS.

Public Participation Information:
The sentence “Oral presentations from the public will be scheduled between approximately 10:30 a.m. to 11 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. to 5 p.m. on July 24, 2012.” is updated to read “Oral presentations from the public will be scheduled between approximately 12:30 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. on July 24, 2012.”.

Agenda

During the morning session, the committee will discuss supplemental new drug application (sNDA) 022059/014 with the trade name Tykerb (lapatinib) tablets, application submitted by SmithKline Beecham (Cork) Ltd, Ireland d/b/a GlaxoSmithKline. The proposed indication (use) for this product is in combination with trastuzumab for the treatment of patients with metastatic breast cancer whose tumors overexpress HER2 and who have received prior trastuzumab therapy(s).

During the afternoon session, the committee will discuss the evaluation of radiographic review in randomized clinical trials using progression-free survival (PFS) as a primary endpoint in non-hematologic malignancies. They will consider the merits of an independent audit of investigator progression assessment in a pre-specified subgroup of patients instead of an independent review of all progression assessments. The expectation is that an independent audit would streamline the conduct of clinical trials, as well as avoid missing data when no additional protocol specified progression assessments are mandated. Hematologic malignancies are excluded from this discussion because other issues (e.g., blood counts, lymph node exams, and other biomarkers) influence the assessment of PFS.
