Roche Holding said its investigational treatment, inavolisib, showed promise in a late-stage study to treat patients with breast cancer.

The Swiss pharmaceutical company said Tuesday that the phase 3 study met its primary endpoint of progression-free survival, showing that inavolisib, in combination with palbociclib and fulvestrant, delivered a statistically significant and clinically meaningful improvement compared to palbociclib and fulvestrant alone.

While Roche acknowledged that overall survival data were immature at this stage, it said it had observed a clear positive trend. The inavolisib combination was well tolerated.

The group said inavolisib is an investigational, oral targeted treatment with potential to provide durable disease control.
