BOXED WARNINGS: HEPATITIS B VIRUS REACTIVATION AND PROGRESSIVE MULTIFOCAL LEUKOENCEPHALOPATHY
Hepatitis B Virus Reactivation
Progressive Multifocal Leukoencephalopathy (PML)
Hypersensitivity Reactions Including Serum Sickness
Tumor Lysis Syndrome (TLS)
Previously Untreated CLL
The most common Grade 3 to 4 adverse reactions (incidence ≥10%) observed in patients with CLL in the GAZYVA containing arm were neutropenia, infusion-related reactions, and thrombocytopenia
The most common adverse reactions (incidence ≥10%) observed in patients with CLL in the GAZYVA containing arm were infusion-related reactions, neutropenia, thrombocytopenia, and diarrhea
Adverse reactions rates and laboratory abnormalities from the Stage 2 phase are consistent with the rates in Stage 1. In addition to the adverse reactions observed in Stage 2, in Stage 1 back pain (5% vs 2%), anemia (12% vs 10%) and cough (10% vs 7%) were observed at a higher incidence in the GAZYVA treated patients. The incidence of Grade 3 to 4 back pain (<1% vs 0%), cough (0% vs <1%) and anemia (5% vs 4%) was similar in both treatment arms. With regard to laboratory abnormalities, in Stage 1 hyperkalemia (33% vs 18%), creatinine increased (30% vs 20%) and alkaline phosphatase increased (18% vs 11%) were observed at a higher incidence in patients treated with GAZYVA with similar incidences of Grade 3 to 4 abnormalities between the two arms
The GADOLIN study evaluated safety in 407 patients with relapsed or refractory NHL, including FL (81%), small lymphocytic lymphoma (SLL) and marginal zone lymphoma (MZL) (a disease for which GAZYVA is not indicated), who did not respond to or progressed within 6 months of treatment with rituximab product or a rituximab product-containing regimen. In patients with follicular lymphoma, the profile of adverse reactions was consistent with the overall NHL population
Serious adverse reactions occurred in 45% of the GAZYVA arm and 37% of the bendamustine-only arm. Fatal adverse reactions within 90 days of treatment occurred in 3.4% and 2.5%, respectively. Throughout follow-up, fatal adverse reactions occurred in 10% of GAZYVA recipients and in 7.4% of recipients of bendamustine alone, with infection and second primary malignancies being the leading causes
The most common adverse reactions (incidence ≥20%) in GAZYVA recipients included infusion-related reactions, fatigue, neutropenia, cough, upper respiratory tract infections, and musculoskeletal pain
During GAZYVA monotherapy (158 patients), adverse reactions in ≥10% of patients included upper and lower respiratory tract infections, cough, neutropenia, musculoskeletal pain, fatigue, diarrhea, rash, and urinary tract infection
In the GAZYVA monotherapy phase, new or worsening Grade 3 or 4 abnormalities included neutropenia in 25% of patients (Grade 4, 10%) and lymphopenia in 23% (Grade 4, 5%)
