Pfizer Inc. Research Report

On November 8, 2013, Pfizer Inc. (Pfizer) released top-line results from its Phase 3B/4 study of RAPAMUNE® (sirolimus) evaluating kidney transplant patients who switched from tacrolimus-based therapy (TAC) to RAPAMUNE® 3 to 5 months after transplant. According to Pfizer, for patients who were switched to RAPAMUNE®, 33.7% of patients achieved the primary endpoint of a ≥ 5 ml/min/1.73m2 renal function improvement based on glomerular filtration rate from randomization to 24 months post-transplantation and 42.3% of patients continuing to take TAC achieved the primary endpoint (p=0.239). The Company stated that the primary endpoint of the study was not achieved as there was not a statistically significant difference in renal function improvement between patients who continued receiving TAC and those who switched to RAPAMUNE®. Pfizer added that the study also evaluated the safety of RAPAMUNE® and the adverse events observed in the study were in line with the known safety profile of RAPAMUNE®.
