AbbVie Provides Update on Depatuxizumab Mafodotin (Depatux-M), an Investigational Medicine for Newly Diagnosed Glioblastoma, an Aggressive Form of Brain Cancer

NORTH CHICAGO, Ill., May 17, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — AbbVie (NYSE: ABBV), a research-based global biopharmaceutical company, today announced the Phase 3 INTELLANCE-1 study of depatuxizumab mafodotin (Depatux-M, previously known as ABT-414) in patients with newly diagnosed glioblastoma (GBM), whose tumors have EGFR (epidermal growth factor receptor) amplification, demonstrated no survival benefit for patients receiving Depatux-M at an interim analysis. An Independent Data Monitoring Committee (IDMC) recommended the study be stopped due to lack of survival benefit for patients receiving Depatux-M compared with placebo when added to the standard regimen of radiation and temozolomide. No new safety findings were observed. Enrollment in all ongoing Depatux-M studies has been halted.
