Phase 3 study of idelalisibin reports positive results in CLL patients

Gilead Sciences, Inc. (Nasdaq:GILD) today announced that its Phase 3 study (Study 116) evaluating idelalisib in previously-treated chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) patients who are not fit for chemotherapy will be stopped early. This DMC recommendation is based on a predefined interim analysis showing highly statistically significant efficacy for the primary endpoint of progression-free survival in patients receiving idelalisib plus rituximab (see structures I and II respectively) compared to those receiving rituximab alone.
