**High-risk AML is defined as therapy-related acute myeloid leukaemia (t-AML) or AML with myelodysplasia-related changes (AML-MRC)

Vyxeos Liposomal has demonstrated:

Significant improvement in overall survival1

  • Median of 9.6 months (Vyxeos Liposomal) vs 6.0 months (conventional chemotherapy*) (P=0.003) (1-sided)1
  • 31% reduction in relative risk of death for patients treated with Vyxeos Liposomal vs conventional chemotherapy*1
  • Median of over 2 years overall survival when Vyxeos Liposomal is used for induction and consolidation2

Improved estimated 12 & 24 month overall survival1

  • 12 months OS: 41.5% (Vyxeos Liposomal) vs 27.6% (conventional chemotherapy*)
  • 24 months OS: 31.1% (Vyxeos Liposomal) vs 12.3% (conventional chemotherapy*)
    Adapted from Kaplan-Meier estimated OS curve

Significantly higher complete response and overall remission rates1

  • CR rates were 37.3% (Vyxeos Liposomal) vs 25.6% (conventional chemotherapy*) (P=0.040)1
  • Overall remission rates (CR + CRi) were 47.7% (Vyxeos Liposomal) vs 33.3% (conventional chemotherapy*) (P=0.016)1
  • Post-hoc analysis suggests that, in patients with a CR or CRi, overall survival was greater for those receiving Vyxeos Liposomal vs conventional chemotherapy*3,4

Reduced 30- and 60-day mortality1

  • 30-day mortality: 5.9% vs 10.6% (P=0.149)
  • 60-day mortality: 13.7% vs 21.2% (P=0.097)

More patients to transplant1

  • More patients treated with Vyxeos Liposomal (34%) proceeded to transplant compared to conventional chemotherapy* (25%) (P=0.098)

Improved survival post-transplant1

  • Post-hoc analysis suggests that Vyxeos Liposomal may improve patients’ transplant outcomes vs conventional chemotherapy*
