Press release SABCS 2015 - Updated Phase III Results from the GeparSepto trial

"nab-Paclitaxel at a dose of 125 mg/m² weekly is equally efficacious but less toxic than at 150 mg/m²"

Results from the neoadjuvant randomized GeparSepto study (GBG 69)" abstract P1-14-11

Updated Phase III Results from German Breast Group (GBG) Demonstrate Reduced Dose of Nab-Paclitaxel (ABRAXANE®) Maintains Efficacy while it Improves Tolerability in High-Risk Early Breast Cancer

SAN ANTONIO & NEU-ISENBURG, Germany & FRANKFURT, Germany -- The German Breast Group (GBG) said less may be more when it comes to the dose of innovative pharmaceuticals used to treat cancer. A follow-up to a Phase III trial presented at last year's San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium (SABCS) demonstrated a lower dose of nab-paclitaxel (ABRAXANE®) (125mg/m2/week) maintains efficacy and is less toxic than a higher dose (150mg/m2/week) that was the starting point in the study. Both doses demonstrated improved efficacy compared to conventional paclitaxel, a taxane commonly used to treat many forms of cancer.
