AstraZeneca Touts Positive Data From Two Experimental Drugs In Breast Cancer Settings
  • AstraZeneca Plc AZN shared positive topline data from the CAPItello-291 Phase 3 trial of capivasertib in combination with Faslodex (fulvestrant) in hormone receptor (HR)-positive, human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2)-low or negative locally advanced or metastatic breast cancer patients, following recurrence or progression on or after endocrine therapy.
  • The capivasertib + Faslodex combo demonstrated a statistically significant and clinically meaningful improvement in progression-free survival (PFS) versus placebo plus Faslodex.
  • The trial will continue to assess overall survival as a key secondary endpoint.

  • The safety profile of capivasertib plus Faslodex was similar to that observed in previous trials evaluating this combination.
  • AstraZeneca also reported topline data from the SERENA-2 Phase 2 trial of camizestrant.
  • The trial met the primary endpoint of demonstrating a statistically significant and clinically meaningful progression-free survival (PFS) benefit at 75mg and 150mg dose levels versus Faslodex 500mg in post-menopausal patients with estrogen receptor (ER)-positive locally advanced or metastatic breast cancer.
  • Tuesday, AstraZeneca reported a Phase 3 trial of Fasenra (benralizumab) that did not meet one of the two dual-primary endpoints in Eosinophilic esophagitis patients aged 12 years or older.
  • Price Action: AZN shares are up 2.95% at $57.55 during the premarket session on the last check Wednesday.
