Novartis : Kisqali Prolongs Life In Women With HR+/HER2- Advanced Breast Cancer

Novartis (NVS) said that Kisqali significantly prolongs life in women with hormone-receptor positive, human epidermal growth factor receptor-2 negative or HR+/HER2- advanced breast cancer now in two distinct late-stage trials.

"We are thrilled that Kisqali combination therapy again has demonstrated improved overall survival for patients with HR+/HER2- advanced breast cancer - first in pre-menopausal and peri-menopausal women in MONALEESA-7, and now in post-menopausal women in MONALEESA-3," said Susanne Schaffert, PhD, President, Novartis Oncology.

According to the company, no new safety signals were observed; adverse events were consistent with previously reported Phase III trial results. Kisqali is approved for use in various indications in more than 75 countries around the world.
