Data from two identical Phase III studies in relapsing forms of MS (OPERA I and OPERA II) showed OCREVUS demonstrated superior efficacy with approximately 80 percent of patients relapse free and significantly slower progression of the disease compared with high-dose interferon beta-1a (Rebif) over the two-year controlled treatment period.
A similar proportion of patients in the OCREVUS group experienced serious adverse events and serious infections compared with patients in the high-dose interferon beta-1a group in the RMS studies.
Patients with melanoma and a single tumor-positive sentinel lymph node had no improvement in overall or disease-free survival with adjuvant high-dose interferon alfa-2b, a study showed.
Several trials have shown that adjuvant high-dose interferon therapy modestly improves outcomes among patients with melanoma at high risk for recurrence, but with the tradeoff of substantial toxicity.
The cost of a course of high-dose interferon treatment is $43,000 per year of life saved, which compares with a cost of $200,000 for cardiac transplantation, $30,000 for renal hemodialysis, and $29,170 for screening melanoma.
However, prophylactic pamxetine was demonstrated to minimize depressive symptoms in a study of melanoma patients who received high-dose interferon for their cancers.
Hepatitis C genotype 1, the most common genotype detected among infected American patients, has a markedly lower response rate to high-dose interferon, even pegylated interferon, plus ribavirin than do genotypes 2 and 3.
Hepatitis C genotype 1, the most common genotype among infected Americans, has a markedly lower response rate to high-dose interferon, even pegylated interferon, plus ribavirin than do genotypes 2 and 3.
The study is comparing the effect of adjuvant Yervoy at either 3 mg/kg or 10 mg/kg versus high-dose interferon in adult patients with high-risk stage III or IV melanoma that has been removed by surgery.
