–Encouraging one-year progression free survival rates in MARIO-3 1L TNBC study regardless of PD-L1 status–
- 52% increase in one-year progression free survival rate in ITT patient population compared to IMpassion130 benchmark -
CAMBRIDGE, Mass., November 14, 2022--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Infinity Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NASDAQ: INFI) ("Infinity" or the "Company"), a clinical-stage biotechnology company developing eganelisib, a first-in-class, oral, immuno-oncology macrophage reprogramming therapeutic, today reported an update from its MARIO-3 study of eganelisib in combination with atezolizumab and nab-paclitaxel in front-line metastatic triple negative breast cancer (TNBC) patients.
"Given our goal of improving long-term patient outcomes, we are particularly pleased to see that the addition of eganelisib to standard of care therapy showed benefit in the one-year progression free survival rate in MARIO-3 regardless of PD-L1 status," said Robert Ilaria, Jr., MD, Chief Medical Officer of Infinity. "These data reinforce the positive two-year landmark overall survival data from MARIO-275 in 2L urothelial cancer, also regardless of PD-L1 status, and the encouraging PFS observed in checkpoint inhibitor refractory squamous cell cancer of the head and neck in our MARIO-1 study, which all support the potential of eganelisib to improve long term outcomes for patients."
MARIO-3 mTNBC Updated Data:
62 patients were enrolled and evaluable for safety, and 57 patients were evaluable for efficacy, with a median duration of follow-up of 10.0 (8.1,14.2) months. Of the 57 evaluable patients:
35 patients (61.4%) had PD-L1(-) tumors
18 patients (31.6%) had PD-L1(+) tumors
4 patients (7.0%) had tumors of undetermined PD-L1 status
With an additional year of data maturity since the San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium 2021, there is now encouraging evidence of a long-term patient progression-free survival (PFS) benefit with improved one-year PFS rates in MARIO-3, including in patients with both PD-L1(+) and PD-L1(-) tumors, compared to the benchmark IMpassion130 study.
