Imfinzi Demonstrates Overall Survival Benefit in Stage III Lung Cancer

Sep 28, 2018, 13:47 PM

AstraZeneca and MedImmune, its global biologics research and development arm, have presented data on overall survival (OS) in the Phase III PACIFIC trial of Imfinzi (durvalumab) during the Presidential Symposium of the IASLC 19th World Conference on Lung Cancer hosted by the International Association for the Study of Lung Cancer in Toronto, Canada. Results were published simultaneously in the New England Journal of Medicine.

Results from the Phase III PACIFIC trial in patients with unresectable Stage III non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) whose disease had not progressed following chemoradiation showed that Imfinzi significantly improved OS, the second primary endpoint of the trial, compared to placebo regardless of PD-L1 expression, reducing the risk of death by 32%.
