Exelixis and Genentech (Roche) Combination Beats Untreated BRAF V600-Mutation Positive Advanced Melanoma

Exelixis Positive Results from IMspire 150

Exelixis (EXEL) announced positive results from IMspire 150; the phase 3 trial of atezolizumab (TECENTRIQ®), cobimetinib (COTELLIC®) and vemurafenib (ZELBORAF®) in people with previously untreated BRAF V600 mutation-positive advanced melanoma. 

The IMspire150 study met its primary endpoint of progression-free survival (PFS). Adding atezolizumab to cobimetinib and vemurafenib helped reduce the risk of disease worsening or death, compared to placebo plus cobimetinib and vemurafenib.

A significant and clinically meaningful improvement in PFS was demonstrated in IMspire150. The safety profile observed in the trial was consistent with the known safety profiles of the individual medicines.
