A Prospective Post-Marketing Observational Safety Study of Verzenios® (Abemaciclib) Among Breast Cancer Patients in China Verzenios® (Abemaciclib) Among Breast


About the study

This PMSS is a single-country, prospective, observational study primarily designed to estimate the incidence of AEs and SAEs among Chinese patients with breast cancer after receiving Verzenios® over a period of approximately 24 weeks in a routine clinical practice. According to the pivotal studies (MONARCH 2, 3 and MONARCH plus), the most frequent treatment-emergent adverse events (TEAEs) generally reported occurred at an early time (within 28 days after treatment initiation) point during treatment (Dickler et al. 2017); hence, each patient enrolled in the study will have the first follow-up visit at 4 ± 1 weeks after the first abemaciclib treatment for regular safety monitoring. Since most reported TEAEs occur within 6 months, patients will return to the clinic after receiving Verzenios for 6 months to carry out the routine effectiveness evaluation in the normal clinical practice setting. The observational duration for primary objective is set as 24 ± 4 weeks. Moreover, the effectiveness related variables including ORR, DCR, EFS rate, and OS rate, if available, will be investigated as the secondary objectives of the study and patients will be followed for 24 ± 4 weeks and up to 2 years (only for EFS rate and OS rate) after initiation of Verzenios. Approximately 30 hospitals across China are planned for participation in this study. This study plans to enroll approximately 1500 patients (detailed in Section 9.5) and both safety and effectiveness of Verzenios will be evaluated. The observation period for each patient will be either until the last Verzenios treatment (if patients discontinue Verzenios before the follow-up duration of 24 weeks for safety and effectiveness [EFS rate and OS rate will be assessed at 52 weeks and 104 weeks], 30 days follow-up will be carried out for safety events), or follow-up discontinuation (for example, death), whichever comes first. Visits will be performed at baseline (baseline visit), 4 weeks (Visit 1), 12 weeks (Visit 2), and 24 weeks (Visit 3) of treatment for safety and effectiveness assessments. Follow-up visits will be performed at 52 weeks (Visit 4) and 104 weeks (Visit 5) of treatment for OS rate assessment.
