IKEMA: SARCLISA + Kd

IKEMA Trial Results: SARCLISA + Carfilzomib and Dexamethasone (Kd) vs Kd Alone

SARCLISA + Kd demonstrated superior PFS vs Kd alone

Median PFS with SARCLISA + Kd is not yet reached (NR)1

PFS results are based on a prespecified interim analysis, with a median follow-up time of 20.7 months. PFS results were assessed by an IRC, based on central laboratory data for monoclonal protein, and central radiologic imaging review using the IMWG criteria.

aStratified by the number of previous lines of therapy (1 vs >1) and Revised International Staging System stage (I or II vs III vs not classified) according to interactive response technology.

IMWG=International Myeloma Working Group; IRC=independent response committee; mPFS=median progression-free survival.

The median duration of treatment in the SARCLISA + Kd group was 80 weeks
vs 61 weeks for the Kd group1

74% OF PATIENTS IN THE SARCLISA + Kd ARM HAD NOT PROGRESSED
vs 59% in the Kd arm at the interim analysis cut-off date2

NCCN Clinical Practice Guidelines in Oncology (NCCN Guidelines®) recommend isatuximab-irfc (SARCLISA) for previously treated multiple myeloma2

Patients in the IKEMA trial achieved deep responses*

Response rates across treatment arms1

aStringent complete response, CR, VGPR, and PR were evaluated by the IRC using the IMWG response criteria. Results are based on a prespecified interim analysis with a median follow-up time of 20.7 months. 1

CR=complete response; PR=partial response; VGPR=very good partial response.

As ORR did not reach statistical significance, CR, VGPR, and PR
were not tested for significance2

  • ORR: SARCLISA + Kd, 87% (95% CI: 0.81, 0.91); Kd, 83% (95% CI: 0.75, 0.89). 95% CI estimated using the Clopper-Pearson method1
  • The median time to first response among responders was 1.08 months in the SARCLISA + Kd arm and 1.12 months in the Kd arm2
