In tiny study, 2 patients experienced a desire to conquer challenge
An experimental drug from Novartis to treat a type of bone marrow cancer met its primary goal in a late-stage study, the Swiss drugmaker said on Friday. A Phase III trial found the drug, dubbed LBH589 when combined with bortezomib and dexamethasone, significantly extended progression-free survival in patients with relapsed or relapsed and refractory multiple myeloma compared to bortezomib and dexamethasone alone. Multiple myeloma is a cancer that starts in plasma cells in bone marrow and disrupts the production of normal blood cells. Novartis said the drug has the potential to become one of the first in a new class of treatments for the incurable disease.
