Key Highlights

Reinforce your 7 + 3 AML treatment with NICE and SMC approved MYLOTARG dosing1,2

Compared with intensive chemotherapy alone, fractionated dosing of MYLOTARG plus intensive chemotherapy in de novo AML offers:

MYLOTARG significantly extended the median EFS* vs DA chemotherapy alone from 9.5 months to 17.3 months (HR: 0.56; (95% CI: 0.42-0.76 P=0.0002)
MYLOTARG more than doubled 3 year EFS probability vs chemotherapy alone (13.6%  vs 39.8%)3,4​​​​​​​

​​​​​​​MYLOTARG more than doubled median RFS vs DA chemotherapy alone from 11.4 to 28 months (HR 0.526 ; 95% CI: 0.362–0.764) p=0.0006) 3,4​​​​​​​

With MYLOTARG, reinforce AML therapy by prolonging remission in more patients than with intensive chemotherapy alone*3,4

*Event Free Survival (EFS) was the primary endpoint for the study. Defined as the time from randomisation to the date of assessment of response (if CR or CRp had not been achieved), relapse or death. 

Median EFS was 17.3 months (95% CI: 13.4, 30.0) in the MYLOTARG arm versus 9.5 months (95% CI: 8.1, 12.0) in the DA alone arm; hazard ratio (HR) 0.562 (95% CI: 0.415, 0.762); 2-sided p=0.0002 by log-rank test.

Median RFS was 28.0 months (95% CI: 16.3, NE) in the MYLOTARG arm versus 11.4 months (95% CI; 10.0, 14.4) in the DA alone arm; hazard ration (HR) 0.526 (95% CI: 0.362, 0.764)
