I’m excited to share with you that the results from the Phase 3 PALOMA-2 trial of IBRANCE® (palbociclib) have been published in The New England Journal of Medicine. To view the Pfizer press release, click here.
These data, presented at the 52nd American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) Annual Meeting in June, further demonstrate the clinical benefit of IBRANCE® (palbociclib) as initial therapy for postmenopausal women with estrogen receptor-positive, human epidermal growth factor receptor 2-negative (ER+, HER2-) metastatic breast cancer. The PALOMA-2 study showed the combination of IBRANCE and letrozole (Femara) extended progression-free survival (PFS), or the amount of time before tumor growth, by more than 10 months compared with letrozole plus placebo. Further, the study demonstrated that the median PFS of the IBRANCE and letrozole combination exceeded two years – making it the first and only treatment for this population of women to do so in a randomized Phase 3 study.1
