  • Final analysis expands on efficacy results from pivotal Phase III trial of Lumoxiti in hairy cell leukemia; durable, complete responses maintained in long-term follow-up data

Innate Pharma SA (Euronext Paris: IPH – ISIN: FR0010331421; Nasdaq: IPHA) (“Innate” or the “Company”) shared new, long-term data from the pivotal Phase III trial of Lumoxiti (moxetumomab pasudotox-tdfk) today at the 61st American Society of Hematology (ASH) Annual Meeting and Exposition in Orlando, USA, which expands on the efficacy results and affirms the manageable safety profile of the medicine. 

The final analysis showed that 36 percent (29/80) of the relapsed or refractory hairy cell leukemia patients achieved durable complete response (CR) with Lumoxiti at Day 181 of patients’ respective evaluation, compared to the primary analysis in which 30 percent durable CR rate was reported. In addition, there was a 61 percent probability that patients who achieved a CR would maintain it after five years. 

Lumoxiti is a first-in-class medicine and the only treatment approved in the US for relapsed or refractory hairy cell leukemia in more than twenty years; therefore, it is important for the hematology-oncology community to receive additional analysis of its long-term efficacy,” commented Pierre Dodion, MD, Executive Vice President and Chief Medical Officer of Innate Pharma. “We are grateful to the patients and health care professionals who participated in the clinical development of Lumoxiti and we are passionate about continuing to address the unmet need in this rare form of cancer.”

The single-arm, multi-center, open-label Phase III ‘1053’ clinical trial assessed the efficacy, safety, immunogenicity and pharmacokinetics of Lumoxiti monotherapy in 80 patients with relapsed or refractory hairy cell leukemia who had received at least two prior therapies, including one purine nucleoside analog. The primary endpoint of durable CR was defined as CR with hematologic remission (HR) for >180 days. 

Findings from the final analysis of the Lumoxiti Phase III trial include:

 Efficacy measure

 Result* (n=80, 95% Confidence Interval)

 Durable CR (CR with HR > 180 days)

 36.3% (25.8 to 47.8)

 CR with HR ≥ 360 days

 32.5% (22.4 to 43.9)

 CR rate

 41.3% (30.4 to 52.8)

 CR with MRD-negative status

 33.8% (23.6 to 45.2)

 Partial Response Rate


 Hematologic Remission Rate


 Median duration of CR

 62.8 months (0.0+ to 62.8)

 Median Progression-Free Survival          

 41.5 months (range 0.0+ to 71.7)

A key treatment goal for patients with relapsed or refractory hairy cell leukemia is to achieve sustained remission, which can be particularly challenging in patients in whom prior therapies have failed. This long-term analysis demonstrates that Lumoxiti achieved a high rate of durable efficacy, while maintaining the benefit risk profile we saw in the primary analysis,” said Robert J. Kreitman, MD, Senior Investigator, Head of Clinical Immunotherapy Section, Laboratory of Molecular Biology, Center for Cancer Research, National Cancer Institute, and Principal Investigator of the Phase III clinical trial.

The final analysis shows that the risk-benefit profile of Lumoxiti is maintained. There were no new serious adverse events and no change in hemolytic uremic syndrome or capillary leak syndrome. Per the primary analysis on the 1053 study, the most frequent treatment-related adverse events (AEs) were peripheral edema (39%), nausea (35%), fatigue (34%), headache (33%), and pyrexia (31%). Treatment-related grade 3/4 AEs were reported in 24 patients (30%) and treatment-related serious AEs in 14 patients (18%). Grade 3/4 CLS events occurred in two patients (2.5%) and any grade of HUS occurred in six patients (7.5%). CLS and HUS events were manageable and reversible with appropriate supportive care and monitoring.

Treatment-emergent AEs led to study drug discontinuation in eight patients (10.0%): hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS), n = 4 (5.0%); capillary leak syndrome (CLS), n = 2 (2.5%); increased blood creatinine, n = 2 (2.5%); renal failure, n =1 (1.3%); vomiting, n =1 (1.3%); and chills, n =1 (1.3%). There were four deaths reported (including the three reported during the primary analysis): two due to disease progression and two due to an AE (1 each of pneumonia and septic shock). No death was considered treatment related.
