Hospitalisation Data

Aim for reduced hospitalisation time1

In a retrospective analysis of the long term data from INO-VATE study; of the patients who received at least one dose of study drug (BESPONSA n=164 vs SC n=143), BESPONSA reduced hospitalisation times when compared with standard chemotherapy

Hospitalisation for both groups was mainly for treatment of underlying disease and toxicity including haematological toxicity and infection1

Overall, 136 of 164 (82.9%) BESPONSA patients and 135 of 143 (94.4%) SC patients experienced at least one hospitalisation1.
BESPONSA patients were observed for a mean of 85.0 days vs 45.2 for SC up to a total of 13,946 vs 6463 days, respectively1.

*Treatment of underlying disease includes hospitalisations for scheduled treatment related to ALL or study participation, relapse and preparation for HSCT.
ALL, acute lymphoblastic leukaemia; HSCT, haematopoietic stem cell transplantation; IRR, incidence rate ratio; SC, standard chemotherapy.
