Seattle Genetics has stopped the phase III CASCADE trial of frontline vadastuximab talirine (SGN-CD33A) for patients with acute myeloid leukemia following a recommendation from an independent data monitoring committee.
No patients experienced infusion-related reactions, veno-occlusive disease, or significant liver damage, although grade ≥3 liver function test abnormalities were observed in 1 patient. The most commonly reported grade 1/2 nonhematologic AEs were nausea (55%), diarrhea (33%), and constipation (31%).
