Lilly Presents Patient-Reported Outcomes from the Positive Phase 3 monarchE Trial for Verzenio® at St. Gallen Virtual Congress 2021
Eli Lilly and Company (NYSE: LLY) today announced patient-reported outcomes (PRO) for the investigational use of Verzenio® (abemaciclib) in combination with standard adjuvant endocrine therapy (ET) for the treatment of hormone receptor-positive (HR+), human epidermal growth factor receptor 2-negative (HER2-) high risk early breast cancer (EBC). The PRO analysis included patients in both arms of the study and measured their experiences with side effects, symptoms, and health-related quality of life, in those receiving Verzenio plus ET versus ET alone. In one analysis, the PRO data indicated that most patients (approximately 70-75%) in both arms reported being bothered “a little bit” or “not at all” by treatment-related side effects. This analysis revealed the addition of Verzenio to ET did not result in a clinically meaningful difference in patients reporting being bothered by treatment side effects. The detailed data were presented at the virtual 17th St. Gallen International Breast Cancer Conference.
