BRISK-PS Study with Investigational Compound Brivanib in Hepatocellular Carcinoma Completed
Bristol-Myers Squibb Company (NYSE: BMY) today reported that the Phase III BRISK-PS (Brivanib Study in HCC Patients at Risk Post Sorafenib) clinical trial in patients with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC; liver cancer) who failed or are intolerant to sorafenib did not meet the primary endpoint of improving overall survival versus placebo.
BRISK-PS is a multicenter, double-blind, randomized study of the investigational agent brivanib plus best supportive care (BSC) versus placebo plus BSC in HCC in patients who have progressed on sorafenib. Bristol-Myers Squibb and the lead investigators plan to present the findings of the study, including secondary efficacy and safety endpoints, at an upcoming scientific meeting. The BRISK-PS study is one of four Phase III clinical trials evaluating brivanib in different HCC patient populations. These ongoing Phase III studies continue as planned.
