The last analysis examined overall survival from baseline to week 60 in patients newly treated with Esbriet during RECAP. While neither RECAP nor CAPACITY was powered to evaluate the effect of treatment on survival, analyses showed that overall survival at 60 weeks post initiation of therapy was similar in patients newly treated with Esbriet in RECAP and CAPACITY, and greater than that of patients who were treated with placebo in CAPACITY. Additionally, fewer treatment emergent deaths, defined as deaths occurring within 28 days of the last dose of study drug, were observed among Esbriet-treated patients in both RECAP and CAPACITY compared with patients who were treated with placebo during CAPACITY. Treatment-emergent death occurred in 3.4% and 2.9% of Esbriet-treated patients in RECAP and CAPACITY, respectively, compared with 5.8% of patients treated with placebo in CAPACITY.These results, coupled with new results to be presented at ERS during a poster discussion session on Tuesday, September 4 on the long-term safety data in IPF patients treated with Esbriet for up to 7.7 years, provide further evidence to support the clinical efficacy and safety of Esbriet in patients with IPF.
