PALOMA-3 Trial Quality- of-life Outcomes

Confidence in a Treatment that's Setting the Standard1-3​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​

​​​​​​​The PALOMA-3 study shows that you can offer patients efficacy without compromising QoL with IBRANCE® in combination with fulvestrant.4

Patient-reported HRQoL was a secondary outcome in the PALOMA-3 study.4​​

PALOMA-3: Global QoL in the ITT population4 

IBRANCE® + fulvestrant generally maintained global QoL (EORTC QLQ-C30); a significant deterioration was observed with fulvestrant alone (p=0.03).4

IBRANCE® + fulvestrant significantly improved emotional functioning compared with fulvestrant alone (p=0.002).​​​​​​​

Adapted from Turner NC, et al. Ann Oncol 2018;29:669–680.5

IBRANCE® plus fulvestrant resulted in more favourable patient QoL scores in all areas whereas patient QoL deteriorated in patients receiving fulvestrant plus placebo.4​​​​​​​

PALOMA-3: Deterioration in Global QoL5 

A statistically significantly greater delay in time to deterioration in global QoL (EORTC QLQ-C30) was observed with IBRANCE® + fulvestrant compared with fulvestrant alone in patients with visceral metastases (p<0.001).5

A similar trend was observed in patients without visceral metastases, but it was not statistically significant.5

PALOMA-3: Time to Deterioration in Pain Score4 

There was a significant decrease in pain* with IBRANCE® + fulvestrant compared with fulvestrant + placebo (−3.3 vs 2.0, p=0.0011).4

IBRANCE® plus fulvestrant significantly delayed TTD in pain symptoms compared with fulvestrant plus placebo (p<0.001).4
